What is it with the University of Maryland and ugly, odd looking uniforms?
The Maryland Terrapins men's basketball team unveiled its new alternate jerseys that they will wear against its game against the Kentucky Wildcats and it is very, well, Maryland.
The new uniforms are gray, but if you look closely it also resembles wool fabric. Wool? Why wool? Its to honor the Brooklyn Dodgers. Why the Brooklyn Dodgers you ask? The game is being held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
One person on a Maryland-themed site, Tesudo Times, said that, "They are ugly as sin and the University of Maryland basketball is paying homage to a Brooklyn baseball team. I don't get it."
Adam Clement of Under Armour, the makers of the uniforms, said, "The expectation is for teams to come out in unique uniforms for big games,
"We worked with the school to do something that showed the appreciation for sports in Brooklyn."
The Terps have no connections or ties with the Brooklyn Dodgers other than playing the game in Brooklyn, so it really does make no sense for these jerseys.
Under Armour, you never cease to amaze.
