You know things are bad—very bad—when the Oregon Ducks look acceptable in comparison.
You know things are horrendous when the eyesores that Boise State wore evoke a "not too bad."
What the University of Georgia rolled out on Saturday against Boise State was a direct assault on college football, the senses of the human body and of all that is good and decent in civilization.
Eschewing their beautiful classic uniforms, Georgia single-handedly set college football back several years. The Bulldogs took to the field in a red, silver and black uniform that had the makings of what Stan Lee would have illustrated had he gone on a three-day sleepless and acid-fueled bender and had been challenged to come up with something for a third-rate supervillain's back-up henchman. That's putting it nicely.
Nearly one upping the Dawgs was Maryland on Monday night. Showing no respect for the sanctity of the Labor Day holiday, nor the state flag their uniforms were ostensibly trying to honor, the Terrapins unleashed these incredibly atrocious monstrosities against Miami.
As if the Hurricanes haven't had it bad enough lately, they have to spend three hours staring at those "uniforms."
The ugliness wasn't limited to the field, with Tennessee coach Derek Dooley and ABC broadcaster Brent Musburger getting in on the borderline-criminal action.
Here's hoping that Georgia and Maryland's atrocities stand as a stark warning for teams around the nation: sometimes less is more.
