ok. These are ugly as sin, but.....

They just announced that the team captains would select the uni for each week, and that they would take into account the opponent's uni. Example given was GaTech. If they have a lot of gold, Maryland won't wear a combo with much gold in it.

I like the concept. It's not for Michigan, but I think it's a nice wrinkle for a program looking to get noticed.

What's even worse are the cleats, Maryland state flag pattern all over them. 

I feel like I'm in that South Park episode when the kids refuse to watch the redux version of "Raiders"

Commercials for both schools uninspiring too.

Miami: make that U thing, 3 credits

Maryland: too many quick shots, also think you back off "fear the turtle" in an academic ad.

It was used as a symbol of the Maryland secessionists, but Maryland had used the Crossland crest as a state symbol for many things prior to the secessionist adoption, and was created in the 17th century (well before there was even a Union to secede from). The state chose to incorporate the crest into its official flag after the Civil War to represent unity and healing, though it had long been used unofficially as one half of the symbol for the state anyway.

When I loaded the ESPN front page, the first thing I said was, "What in the HELL are the Terrapins wearing?"

I don't even do that with Oregon's unis.  That is impressively ugly.

Md scores on fumble return for TD with 40 seconds to go in half.  Miami had ball inside their own 20 and opted to run, presumably to run out the half.  Ball stripped and returned for 6.  Those that thought Denard going on a knee at the end of the 2nd quarter was weak (myself included) should repent.

Methinks you need to be at least out to the ~30 with a little time left or within hail-Mary distance if it's just a few seconds (depends on QB).

I believe the frequency of turnovers is greater than the frequency of 80 yd TDs in prevent situations.

If Texas had taken a knee in 09 against Alabama, they might have been Natl Champs.

Football, basketball, and hockey. I haven't seen UVA do anything in any of those sports. You must be a lax brah or something. 

The thing is, nobody cares about anything besides bball and football. Just look at the guy who always posts about UM softball on this site. Nobody even reads that shit. It's nice for the players and their friends and family, but everyone knows UVA sports are a joke because their basketball and football teams suck. Get over yourself.

I just have one question, if you can take a break for a sec from being a hypocritical ass about the lacrosse/hockey thing: what the fuck got into you all of a sudden?  Maryland resident?  Terp grad student and/or slappy?  You're theoretically a Michigan fan, since when do the precious feelings of a fanbase that give OSU and MSU a real run for their money in the couch-burning department matter to you?

Or, in short: Why are you acting a dick to one of the hundreds of people who are bashing the uniforms?
