When the LSU Tigers roll in to Sanford Stadium this Saturday, Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt is hoping that they run in to a sea of red. There were previously rumors that the team would be calling for a “black out” for the big game, but Richt tweeted out that he is calling for a “red out” instead.
Richt tweeted, “We are wearing Red jerseys Saturday. To show the unity of the DawgNation I’m asking everyone to wear Red!”
He went on to add that the unity in the stands would breathe some extra life in to the stadium and show unity among the team and fans as they prepare for their big game.
“I think it’s a good thing,” Richt said, via Dawg Bytes Online. “We are wearing our red, our players are, and our fans traditionally wear red most of the time. I’d like to have it 100 percent. I think it would be a great sign of unity for our Bulldog Nation and I think if everybody buys in and then everybody gets to the stadium and sees that everybody’s bought in before we even kick off, I think it just adds a little energy to the day. I’d really like to see that.”
Any time there is a stadium packed with one color, it is a great site to see.
For the Bulldogs, getting the crowd united as one and cheering on the team will hopefully give them that extra fuel to charge towards a win.
