Adidas has done a solid for a few lucky teams ahead of the NCAA Tournament. Baylor Basketball is one of the chosen few that get a whole new look and feel to their classic jerseys, and they are sweet. 

Baylor may not be the best team in the field, but they will definitely turn heads as they suit up in cool fluorescent yellow jerseys that are lighter than their old threads. 

These things are not universally beloved, but that is exactly what makes them fashion forward and why Baylor's gamble wins in my book. Just like playing ball at this time of year, you have to shoot from the hip and hope it goes in. Baylor will be looking good.

Let's be honest, college basketball will dominate what's on the TV for the rest of the month. Sometimes it will be just a passing thing you have on in the background. 

With these uniforms on, the Baylor Bears will demand your attention. The home jerseys rock the hot yellow that makes you think you could see this team fly down the court in the dark. Sure they are the Bears, and yes there are what looks to be tiger stripes on the shorts, but they work. 

It's more subtle on the home unis than the away, but I like how they look.

Adidas made sure to have the colors be the thing that draws you in. The rest of the jersey, even down to the stripes on the shorts, is muted. 

I like the stripe that incorporates the team name to the right running down the short leg. These jerseys work on a number of levels. 

Many will hate on them for being all in your face, but that is exactly what I love about them.

Adidas tells us that the jerseys are 28 percent lighter than the old threads. That means the Bears will look good and feel good. 

It's hard to say you can get a competitive advantage from just a jersey, but I would be willing to bet Baylor will be playing much better ball in March. 

You will need a U-Haul to carry this team's swagger into the gym.
