U of Maryland make millions’ eyes bleed with new Under Armour unis!

Whoa!

I have no words to describe the black and yellow, red and white hideousness that corrupted my eyesight during last night’s Maryland-Miami game.  I mean, that game was damn near unwatchable.

Unlike the sick new Oregon Duck uniforms that were designed by Nike, the new Terrapin unis, courtesy of Under Armour, are horrific. PRIDE, as they’ve been defined by Under Armour, were inspired “by characteristics specific to Maryland’s state flag and the University of Maryland.  The jersey numbers, cleats, and gloves all feature a custom Maryland flag print.”

No disrespect (of course) to Maryland and those that live there, but I, along with everyone else in the country, don’t approve.  Last night, twitter buzzed as people wasted no time sharing their reactions with the twitterverse.  Here are a few.

It wasn’t all hate, though.  Carmelo Anthony, a former Bmore resident, held them down.

And, Brandon Jennings, who reps Under Armour, defended the brand by going at LeBron.

And, while Skip Bayless also didn’t approve of the uniforms, he did put things in perspective.

True.  Think about it.  When’s the last time anyone discussed Maryland football, not named the Baltimore Ravens?  Exactly.  So, while the uniforms are without question the ugliest things we’ve ever seen, everyone’s discussing the Terrapins; whether it’s good, bad, or indifferent.

But, if you’re curious to know what Under Armour was smoking thinking when they designed these dreadful uniforms, check this video:

 

And, as we learned from John Witherspoon in Boomerang, “when you’re coordinating, you don’t stop there.  You gotta keep going.“  And that’s exactly what Under Armour did.  They designed 32 uniform combinations for the Terps to choose from throughout the season.  That means they’ll make a new statement with each game.  Just think, it could actually get worse! Lucky us.

Here’s a look at eight of the uniforms, the turtle shell helmet debuted during pre-game warmups, and the cleats.

Oh, by the way, Maryland won the game.  They beat the depleted University of Miami 32-24.  RIP to the U.
