I feel like "He Hate Me" should be on the back of those.
OT: Maryland's New Uniforms
He Hate Those Uniforms.
good luck getting into the BIG now
although I do like he helmets
I'm not disgusted by that second helmet, the charcoal one. I like that matte color - looks military-esque.
Looks like Under Armor is taking a page out of Nike's book as it relates to Oregon's uniforms. I wonder if Auburn's or Texas Tech's jerseys are next . . .
More like derps!
Is Under Armor contracting with Ms. Johnson's third grade class? Only one (the white one) looks like a real uniform.
Very classy. Kind of reminds me of the XFL!
A clusterfuck of uniforms. How can Maryland think, 'yea, this looks good' ?
The only one I can even stand to look at is the 3rd, and that one sucks too.
Looks like they're trying to be the Oregon of the East. Will it give Maryland an identity?
these uniforms look like trash. no offense to maryland but who ever picked these bad boys out musta had vision problems.
So are they trying to out-do Oregon? Because that's about the only worst ones I can think of and these may tie those
Yay for the Maryland state flag references!!
As a Maryland fan and Maryland native, that is all I could think, that they must have been trying to work in the flag however possible. It is a gorgeous flag, but I don't know that they integrated it very well. I can only hope that they will leave the truly awful ones on the shelf except on very rare occasions.
It is a cool flag. Ours (Michigan) is pretty generic.
I'll not suffer anyone to speak ill of Lord Calvert and his heraldic banner.
One thing I noticed since moing to Maryland was the unusual infatuation that Marylanders (?) have with the state flag.
They make Oregon's uniforms look great.
Da da da da da, I'm lovin it.
who actually likes most of Oregon's uniforms, these are all ugly as shit.
But man don't hate on Oregon for havin some swag, I wouldn't trade our uniforms for anything but Oregon uni's are so smooth. Except the ones they wore in nc game.
Under Armour isn't on the same level as nike and adidas. And once they are, that'll mean they'll have enough $ to outdo adidas and will sign with Michigan.
As a Temple University student I have to say I do not hate the Owls new uni's (though that neck looks a little too ACC/SEC for my liking). I just hope that they don't get the designer responsible for this Maryland fiasco next year.
they are building quite the stable of stars w endorsement deals: Tom Brady, Ray Lewis, Dez Bryant, Devin Hester, Miles Austin, Cam Newton, Michael Phelps, Georges St Pierre just to name a few.
They are going hard after 'Endorsement Free Agents'.
And they've managed to gain a lot of street cred in a short amount of time. It's pretty common to see teenagers wearing UA gear. Nike still has the upper hand, but UA's marketing tactics seem effective.
Adidas stops after these Legacy Unis. At first I wasn't a fan of them, but they've grown on me. Now it looks like everyone is going to try and keep up w Nike and them Pro Combats.
Those are hideous.
So the owner of Under Armor decided to make crazy, multiple combo uni's for his alma mater... very original.
with a burning white hot passion for turning college football in cartoon characters.
and yes I realize these are under armour but it was Nike who started this god awful trend.
With all of those different combinations you'd think at least one would look decent.
Does the white helmet remind anyone else of a crash test dummy?
With pickles up your nose, French Fries between your toes, ketchuprunning down my back, "I want my money back, before I have a heart attack!", McDonalds is that kind of place!
That’s a real wow experience, which should help build the Maryland brand, see how marketing can improve college sports.
Looks like someone ate Mexican food and threw up on them...
New champion of ugliness !
agree about #72......"goober" looks like he has a helmet on for the first time in his life.
do not even remotely resemble turtles.
well, at least now I have an incentive to take UMD up on the free student tickets. It'll be like going to the circus.
will not look good on your performance review.
I just got my MDen catalogue in the mail the other day and remembered how terrible those jerseys look on paper. They don't look nearly as bad with shoulder pads minimizing those sleeves but they are really bad. No way in hell would I buy one and wear it around.
They are truly frightening
/Kickass Guitar Solo!!
It's like, instead of normal wings, they're like... the wings of a Phoenix.. Rad right?!
I'm always impressed with the creativity of our fan base. But I do hope the flaming winged helmet never sees the light of day - we already have perfection.
for design artists.
someone show these pictures to Joe Paterno at his next press conference and see what he has to say about them. Then cut to the studio to get Bob Knight's opinion right after that. That would be some entertainment.
It looks like a mexican parade
if you ask me
If only they had hired Leach. Edsall is antithetical to those uniforms.
from OK to horrible (fast)
Jersey / Pants
Less busy would be better but I like these
1. White / black
2. Red / black
3. Black / white
4. Red / white
Hard to screw these combos up
5. White / white
6. White / red
7. Black / black
8. Black / yellow
9. White / yellow
10. Red / yellow (not pictured, but it's an ugly combo)
11. Yellow / black
12. Yellow / yellow
13. Black / red
R U Serious?
14. Yellow / red (not pictured for a reason)
15. Yellow / white
16. Red / red
Are their school colors now Ketchup, Mustard and Death?
What did uni watch have to say I'm sure there was nothing good about these they look terrible. These schools must know they look ridiculous right?
The only two I approve of are the Black/Black and the White/White. Everything else sucks. Under Armour should just stick to lacrosse jerseys, these might make better lax jerseys anyways. But this is like Oregon 2.0. God I would hate to see what their retro jerseys look like.
Maryland doesn't have uniforms; it has the closet of a 15-year old girl who has a bizarre affection for red, yellow, and black.
Ugly ass uniforms aside, that turtle shell helmet is pretty badass
I guess if you can't play good football, the only way to make up for it is to look really, really stupid.
They look like a women's team: in a Las Vegas bordello.
Even the Cy-Hawk trophy sculptor is laughing at these....
This sort of reminds me of the Padres uniforms in the early 80s. You would look at them and think that the designer was inspired by someone evacuating after a spicy meal....
As a designer myself, all I can say is 'wow.'
The thing that stands out to me the most is those gradient numbers... We've seen Nike play with them for awhile (on Boise St's Pro Combat jersey this year, in fact), but these just aren't handled that well, especially on the red jersey where they invert from negative to positive on the same background.
In other words, from about the 10th row that '59' is gonna look like 'CO.' Yeesh.
when Maryland came to the Big House?
I've had a rethink on this, I commend Maryland for fitting in all 4 school colors, thats hard to do. But overall the design and presentation is just hideous.
I remember on of their fans chanting "beat the spread, beat the spread" in the 4th quarter.
NASCAR ratings and attendance has suffered for the past three or four years. This undoubtedly is a reflection of the poor economy but some have speculated that the fact that teams change sponsors and paint schemes on an almost race-to-race basis has made the events more difficult to watch because it is difficult for the average fan to know if their favorite driver was passed by Dale Jr., Cousin Carl, or Rowdy Busch at a glance. A confused fan isn't going to tune in long. I can see this as an issue for a school like Maryland who isn't known for having a strong football program and likely doesn't have a strong fan base.
If a casual fan is flipping through the channels he may flip right on past the Maryland game because he doesn't recognize the uniforms. Similarly, a casual fan may lose interest after cheering for the wrong team when they play other red, black, or yellow teams.
These aren't uniforms in the classic sense of the term. Maybe multiforms?
Sorry, posted from MgoDroid.
They kind of remind me of the uni's that an obnoxious team in Any Given Sunday would wear.
or the Duluth franchise in the Arena Football League.
Have you seen Georgia's PRO COMBAT set yet...? Might give these a run for their money.
PS: Hear that? That's the sound of me being too lazy to go find a link.
They screwed up a perfectly good uniform. I thought their helmets were actually pretty cool before, but now they're pieces of crap. Sigh...
Those garbage uniforms looks like something from the XFL. Where's McMahon when you need him.
Has anyone noticed the following of teams like UM and Alabama, who's jerseys are plain, simple, and timeless. That's branding - I don't know what Georgia and Maryland are trying to pull.
I have to agree with you, I've always thought that UM, Penn State, and ND's uniforms were most classic uniforms in the game. No obnoxious logos on the helmets, and the jerseys and pants are simple.
... umm.... the helmet stripe? (They do have the coolest state flag, might as well encorporate that design somewhere--the helmet stripe gets an "A")
These unis need more cowbell... I mean, yellow. /s The more I look at 'em, the more I think that they are "ok" if you just get rid of the yellow jersey and switch yellow pants for red or black with maybe a TINY bit of yellow.
