Turn on ESPN if you want to see the uglist football uniforms ever (Sports Vanity)
09.05.11

Posted on 09/05/2011 5:10:13 PM PDT by Perdogg

I apologize for the vanity, but some one at the University of Maryland should be fired and flogged for the football uniforms.

They are beyond ugly. If some one finds a picture, please post it.

There is an extreme “fashion emergency” with regards to many of the new uniforms this year!

UnderArmour is giving them the same treatment Nike gave Oregon...a boatload of really ugly, interchangeable uniforms. I think the guy who started UA is a Maryland guy...like Nike’s Phil Knight is an Oregon guy

I know it’s the Maryland flag motif, but it reminds me of a NASCAR flag.

Good grief is this what the former UConn head football coach is doing, becoming a fashion designer? If he had done this at UConn, the fans would have SCREAMED! Glad to have a common-sense head coach in Coach Paul P. Sorry to have shorten the last name to just the capital letter.

You’re preaching to the choir here. I think the Browns are the only team playing that isn’t too flashy.

"Those are bad but not as bad as what Georgia was in the other night."

I was thinking the same thing. I'm not one to knock my SEC brethren, but good lord those Georgia uniforms were UG-LEE! I hope they return to their traditional uniforms.

They do look like reversable uniforms. Reminds me of an odd song and dance from “Victor Victoria.” Also look a bit schizo.

Maryland uniforms are ugly. Must have been designed by women. Only thing missing is a turtle on the seat of the pants. I notice none of the coaches on the sidelines are wearing the same thing. Saturday night, the Georgia coaches’ shirts were the same as the players.

First of all, what is a Nittany Lion anyway? Secondly, isn't Penn State the home of the ugliest football uniforms, the Global Warming hoax and these clowns?

They are Under Armor uniforms. The helmet and shoulder pads are the motif of the Maryland state flag (one of the most unusual in the country).

I actually like it better than Georgia’s new uniforms or Oregon’s glow in the dark.

Some schools are very traditional - Penn State, Michigan, Alabama, Southern Cal, Nebraska, Texas, Oklahoma. What do all these programs have in common?

The same is true in baseball: the Yankees, Tigers, Cardinals are very traditional. They don't even have a dark colored alternate road jersey, Other teams (Astros, Indians, Royals and Rangers seem to have new designs all the time.

When it comes to uniforms, tradition is always better...

Is that little swoosh part of the tradition?
