Foozbawww Friday - NCAA uniforms

It's that time of the week again and with the upcoming game against the turtles - I thought today would be a good time to discuss


I picked that color combination because those are Maryland's colors. Yes, I know. Not good. 

So, I hate to start off with the best, but since I've already brought it up, I feel like I have to. There are two dueling uniform companies for the NCAA - Under Armour (we must protect this house) and Nike. In my opinion, under armour does a sub par job on unis, and nike is the OBVIOUS choice, but maybe I am biased. (USC has under armour unis - so terrible and they will not be featured today). 

Maryland's new unis -

I'm torn. When I first saw them, I was in shock and thought NNNNNOOOOOO, but the more I look at them, the more they grow on me. I'm not a fan of the Maryland state flag anyway, but at least they're representing, right? Am I right? 

p.s. these are the old Maryland uniforms -

A step up in my opinion. 

Some of my fav unis - 

These are so under armour-like that I thought they were Nike uniforms. My colleague at work, Drew, mentioned they were Under Armour so I thought I'd give them props. Whatever you're doing here UA, apply it everywhere else because these look great. I think we've got a combination of good colors with traditional stripes and it makes for a good uniform. 

Ours (my ours, I mean Clemson), is a good example of a traditional uniform as well. 

Dabo made the Tiger Paw bigger and it looks a lot nicer

Non - Traditional 

Nike loves to pick a couple of school and makes non traditional uniforms. They are so controversial and I love talking about it. Here are some examples -

UGA - the gloves are cool

the helmets are not

ugh, that red strip down the middle is terrible. Too big. bleh - source

Boise State

I straight up love this uniform and everything that goes along with it

source - these helmets are awesome

and last but not least, the team that's Nike's love interest -


I love a matte helmet

What do y'all think?? 

I would like to give honorable mention to Cincinnati because I LOVE their helmets
