Last year, the Maryland football team shocked the world when they introduced their flag-inspired, amazingly ugly new uniforms. These uniforms received nationwide panning and are rumored to have caused several unconfirmed cases of temporary blindness.
How has Maryland decided to respond to the criticism that they got for those unis last year? By passing along that same horrific design to their basketball team.
Bad taste is apparently contagious.
As noted by Yahoo! Sports:
Second-year Maryland coach Mark Turgeon confirmed in an interview with WNST-Radio in Baltimore last week that the basketball team would be unveiling a "Pride" jersey similar to the football ones next season. And now, via Testudo Times, a preliminary rendering of the new basketball jerseys has surfaced.
The baseball team may as well just wrap itself in the Maryland flag now and save everyone some time.
