Maryland Football Uniforms: Ugly Under Armour Unis Mar College Football
We've already seen some great college football in the first week of the regular season, complete with upsets and uprisings.
But when we were "treated" to the game between the Miami Hurricanes and Maryland Terrapins on Monday on ESPN, several of us watched in horror.
Randy Edsall, the new head coach of Maryland, decided in late August that it would be a good idea to let the fans vote on what the Terrapins would wear against Miami this season.
Normally, I would agree with this method, given college football has been known to botch uniforms, but what the Terrapins trotted out with on Monday was a slight to mankind and a travesty, and I'm not even exaggerating.
I would describe the uniforms, but, honestly, there are no words that can describe them. I guess you could say they remind you of what a child would do with different-colored paint cans if he was given the freedom to do whatever he/she wanted. There were so many colors on Maryland's uniforms, I had to check my TV set to see if it had broken again. Up against the classic Miami unis, the Terrapins looked like a joke gone horribly, horribly wrong.
In fact, the Terrapins actually lead Miami after the first quarter on Monday, 7-0, and for once I didn't attribute it to the team at all but the blinding colors that surely confused the Hurricanes. As a quarterback or defense, staring down the Terrapins must have been like trying to concentrate amid a real-life Picasso painting.
I had hope this college football season, especially after that dazzler of a game between TCU and Baylor to start things off, but the Maryland Terrapins' uniforms have ruined it for me.
I don't know what's worse, the University of Miami after the scandal or the University of Maryland after those uniforms.
College football will never be the same again.
