Pretty colors! Fun stripey shorts! Sleeves!!!
Seriously. What's going on here?
It appears that Adidas is not quite finished ruining basketball uniforms across the nation: today the company unveiled its new "adizero uniform system," which six college teams—Cincinnati, Kansas, Baylor, UCLA, Louisville, and the Notre Dame Doublemints—will wear for conference play in March.Thankfully, even Michigan has their limits.
Baylor, Louisville, and UCLA will wear jerseys that have sleeves, for some reason. All six of the teams will be wearing cutoff Zubaz pants, for some reason.
SportsBusinessDaily.com reported Wednesday that adidas will be rolling out college versions of its short-sleeve basketball uniforms for the NCAA tournament.I think the combination of Outback Bowl uniforms and then the all-maize basketball unis against Ohio State have officially, finally, put me over the edge. Adidas needs to stop this. And if they don't stop it, then Michigan (@davebrandonad) needs to simply stop giving in for the sake of just trying to appear "hip".
Michigan, however, won't be wearing them.
"Officials at Michigan and N.C. State, two other adidas schools in position to make the NCAA tournament, said they will not wear short-sleeve jerseys," the site reported.
You know what's hip? Winning. Tradition. Greatness.
That's my $0.02.
