Maryland Football’s Under Armour “Pride” Uniform
The case for Abomination: Louder than an angry Brian Kelly. All fan affiliations aside, some of the best uniforms of all time are the simplest. Adorned with only letters, numbers, and silhouettes. See Alabama, Auburn, ultra-minimalist Penn State, Michigan, Oklahoma, and even Texas, which somehow manages to make even burnt orange look awesome. The current trend is to beat you over the head with colors and clash. Oregon already owns this territory, and they looked like they were gearing up to be extras in TRON 3 Saturday night. Oregon can do this. Everyone else… no.
The case for Awesome: Maryland has, undoubtedly, one of the best looking state flags in the Union and good for them for working it in, well everywhere really. They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity and Maryland Football is getting plenty of attention. It was also once said that the blue turf at Boise State was an eyesore. There comes a point when something is so incredibly heinous that it becomes embraced and then loved. Besides, they aren’t even close to the ugliest football uniforms of all time. That “honor” goes to the Dallas Knights in Any Given Sunday. Is there an over/under for how much acid the costume designer dropped before coming up with those things?
Awesome, Abomination, or both? Leave your vote in the comments section below. Also, feel free to enjoy one minute and eight seconds of cool visuals with a voice over that says… not a whole lot.
