Report: Several SEC teams to wear alternate black Nike uniforms
Would the Alabama Crimson Tide really hit the field in a black uniform? According to a source at Tidewater News, they won't be the only ones, as LSU, Georgia and Florida are all rumored to be wearing new alternate black football uniforms this season.
Here are the shirts he's referencing:

The Georgia athletic director was quick to shoot down any rumors that these black jerseys would actually be worn this season by the Bulldogs:
At this point, no other SEC school has officially stated the jerseys would not be worn, however an Oklahoma employee also stated the Sooners would not be wearing any new uniforms this season.
It appears these jerseys may be a pipe dream, but fans of the black apparel can hold out hope the schools are simply trying to keep their new unis under wraps for a little while longer.
