Maryland Uniforms Draws Lots Of Attention
Last night the University of Maryland defeated the Miami Hurricanes 32-24 in new head coach Randy Edsall’s debut. However the game was not about Edsall or the Hurricanes new coach Al Golden or even the recent NCAA investigation surrounding the school thanks to convicted felon Nevin Shapiro but instead the uniforms donned by the Terrapins designed by Under Armour.
The University of Maryland’s new uniforms dominated Twitter and Google. The Terrapins emerged from the locker room with new white uniforms patterned after the state flag. They wore wild helmets spashed with red and white on the left side and black and yellow on the right, and the pattern continued to the shoulders. Unfortunately the new uniforms drew hate and laughter from athletes and media members throughout Monday night. LeBron James of the Miami Heat tweeted:
“OH GOSH. Maryland uniforms. #Ewwwwww!”
ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas tweeted:
“The 1970′s Houston Astros have just released a statement that they would not be caught dead in the new Maryland football uniforms.”
What James, Bilas and most everyone fail to realize though is the uniforms really did create a national buzz for Maryland even if it was uncomplimentary.
