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.

They actually got rid of the white collar this year. The Jerseys will be all blue. I put Texas in first with the best unis, but Penn State is second.

Those Georgia unis looked that way for a good reason. They’re auditioning a replacement for their bulldog mascot, UGA VIII, so they want to make sure the new dog humps the right legs.

Nittany is the name of a mountain (big hill) range near the Penn State campus. The Nittany (Ninnaly to Barack Obama fans) Lion is a mountain lion rather than a Detroit Lions (toothless) style lion.

Coach Joe Paterno runs an austere football program. The team just wears its practice uniforms game day.

You are selling to the wrong person. I have little love for Joe Pa and his Amish looking team. Go Pitt!

They look more like “The Village People”, than like a football team.

Ugly uniforms or not, I have to go with Maryland. Half the Miami players belong in jail and the school deserves the ‘death penalty’ far more than SMU did in the mid 1980s.

I am a Gator man, but I have got to tell you that the uniform is not that bad! I REALLY like the cross on the shoulder pad and the side of the helmet! Just think of the heartburn the ACLU is getting looking at that!

Last time a Georgia coach tried the all-red uniforms, they played so poorly that they donated them to a high school team. Looks like they didn’t learn their lesson.

I am not selling anything. I am a Chippewas fan (Central Michigan) because my daughter goes there, but it's a victory for the Chips if they can break into the top 100 Division 1 schools.

I hate Michigan and Notre Dame, which is rather strange for a church-going Irish Catholic who lives in Michigan.

If it was a star and crescent the ACLU would applaud it.

Maryland's flag has the cross because it was the only colony founded by Catholics. Today Maryland is 95% heathen.

The story goes that the mountain lions roamed Mt.Nittany until the late 1800's. I wasn't alive then, so I've never seen one either.

My favorite Obama gaffe is calling the team the Nittaly lions...in PA.

Schizophrenic uniforms. Are they trying to capitalize on the fact the Preakness horse race is held in Maryland since those unis look like racing silks? Hard to make a thoroughbred out of a turtle.

You are correct that we UCONN fans would scream. Coach P. , I think, will grow UCONN football.

Supposedly, Nittany is an indian tribe that roamed those parts. I grew up there. Oneida was another, or perhaps Nittany was part of the Oneida tribe. Penn State Oneida Lions just didn’t have a good ring to it, I suppose.

Don't forget Boise State's and the Ducks' day-glo shoes!

Boise State fan here. I thought them uniforms kinda looked like like an upside down version of those white plastic fake candles you get for holidays that flicker between two orange filaments.

As soon as I came to the first comment on the Nittany Lion, I thought someone has called them the Nittally Lions. LOL, I should have remembered it was Pres//ent Obama. LOL even more! Almost milk out the nose time!

Close to the ugliest but the old Tampa Bay Bucs are still the worst.

Especially the Pirate biting the knife. He looks more like he should be biting a pillow.

I flipped to it last night, and within three seconds I said, “those uniforms HAVE to go.”

There have been some ugly uniforms in the past (and maybe even the present), but those U of M outfits represent a crime against humanity.

The Maryland state flag is very cool, but it does NOT translate well to football uniforms. Good grief, what’s wrong with basic white and red with the big “M” on the helmet, or the silly-looking smiling turtle?

Seems Under Armor has tried to outdo Nike as having the most butt-ugly uniforms.

Georgia's were despicable. Oregon's are always atrocious.

The only thing missing from Maryland's and Georgia's uniforms were clown noses and big shoes and coming on to the field in a little car with the players all climbing out.

Whoever designs these things needs to stick to hairdressing and interior decorating.

Miami's uniforms would have look much better...if Nike had included a purse.

Do the schools actually buy those hideous uniforms or does Nike pay the schools to wear them?

Wonder how many high school players say, "I'm not going there and wearing those stupid looking uniforms" or players already on the team saying, "Why did I come here?"

And Boise State...I didn't think their uniform could look uglier than what they wore last year against Virginia Tech, who wore an equally repulsive "outfit" in the opener.

Found your posting.

What is “the-boneyard.com” ?

Is it a club for UConn fans? THANKS! :)=^..^=

At least Coach P. is going to make UConn football even more famous.

One local sports talk host here said they looked like a bowling ball. I thought that was funny. I dont get why these schools are doing this. Georgia did the same thing. College football is suppose to be about tradition. Now I like the throw back uniform (some of them) but for the most part lets go back to tradition.
