"Alternate" Uniforms

Anybody else hate the alternate uniforms that college teams are wearing? I mean, the Steelers prison unis with the butt-colored pants probably take the NFL cake but colleges are beyond the pale.

Oregon is in a special category. I suppose when you're operating with an in-house apparel department (cough, cough, Nike...) then you get to wear whatever the f*ck the designers puke out. But the rest of the NCAA? Just this weekend we've had Louisville wearing colors that have nothing to do with, well, Louisville colors, Maryland's latest harleuin helmet (yes, I know they're all some variant of the state flag {and I actually know the origin of that flag}), and tonight UCLA's unreadable metallic-on-urban camo crap.

You hear coaches say "act like you've been there." Hey, NCAA wannabes: Dress like you've been there.

Yeah, that's what they say. How many blue chips has Maryland gotten since they went blind? Has the uniform at 'bama hurt Nick Saban's recruiting? If a recruit is more interested in how they look than learning to play or playing where they're recruited, fuggem.

Yeah, I hate it. I was OK with it at first, but it's out of hand. Texas Tech's helmet tonight was a pastiche of the colors on the Texas flag. Funny thing is, they were wearing it against the actual University of Texas.
