Today is the first day of March and the Madness has begun.
Thursday, Adidas unveiled its new NCAA uniforms, and I think the best way to describe them would be different. The adizero uniform systems will be worn by six teams (Baylor, UCLA, Louisville, Cincinnati, Kansas and Notre Dame) starting with the post-season on March 13th but can be purchased right now at adidas.com.
The uniforms will come in both sleeveless (Cincinnati, Kansas, Notre Dame) and short sleeve (Baylor, UCLA, Louisville) varieties. From adidas’ press release:
Both sets of uniforms feature adidas’ quick drying technology found in current NBA uniforms and ClimaCool zones which move heat and moisture away from the body to keep the jersey light and dry during heavy sweating. The innovative adizero short sleeve uniform system is engineered to enhance player performance by improving fit, comfort and mobility and features FORMOTION technology and 360-degree stretch fabric armhole insets for comfort and free range of motion during shooting and dribbling.
The uniform’s limited-edition impact camo design and bright coloring were created exclusively for this year’s NCAA basketball postseason run. The impact camo pattern is designed to let players stand out on college basketball’s biggest stage, while patches on the jersey backs feature school specific detailing to pay homage to team spirit and pride.
Not really sure that I am feeling this move. Have you really looked at these things? The new uniforms remind me of the train wreck of the past two years of the NFL Combine uniforms worn by NFL hopefuls. This just shows that they will make college kids wear just about anything.
