They looked like something that would be painted on a World War 1 battleship to confuse the enemy.  HeHe

I thought they were cool. But the fact of the matter is that I think it's all a marketing thing, and not so much for the Terps as it is for Under Armor, a Maryland company that has it's logo rather prominently emblazoned about eight times on every one of the four different version uniforms that they will be wearing this season. You can bet they came up with the idea and payed for or at least heavily "subsidized" the uniforms. They are different to catch your attention and to brand UA.

 

Then again I'm pretty jaded about big-time college sports. That is when I'm not enjoying watching it :)

 

Great article on what the lengths that the NCAA has gone to to preserve the "amateur" status of the athletes that make billions and billions of dollars for colleges and universities across the country:

I thought I was watching a football team from mid evil times, they look like flags or banners from that era.  Not sure that I cared for them all that much, but to each his own.

Colin Cowherd had a great comment regarding the uniforms.

 

He said that the younger generation seemed to like the uniforms and that they gain attention for the program. Oregon built their team based on uniforms.

 

He said" Look at Notre Dame and Penn State, they haven't changed their uniforms in 100 years and look where they're at... they're garbage."

 

"Oregon, they change their uniforms at half-time"

 

Just sayin...
