When the Maryland football program unveiled their state flag-themed jerseys last season (click here for pictures), they instantly become the ugliest uniforms in college football if not the entire world of sports. Twitter erupted with athletes, celebrities, and regular Joes talking about how horrible they are, but it doesn’t appear that the negative feedback has bothered the university. As if it wasn’t bad enough that the Terrapins football team has to run around in these eyesores, it appears the basketball team is going to be sporting a similar look this upcoming season.
As you can see from the photo above that the Testuto Times passed along, the Terps basketball uniforms would be similar to the football uniforms with checkers and other ridiculous patterns and colors. Fortunately they do not have to wear helmets, which are by far the worst part of the football uniforms.
“Maryland Athletics and Under Armour will make sure our fans know when we launch Pride for Maryland Basketball,” Maryland spokesman Doug Dull confirmed in an email to The Dagger on Wednesday, adding that the above photo is merely a “draft rendering.”
Draft rendering or not, anything that looks even remotely close to what the football team has to wear would be a complete disappointment.
