Perhaps A Tad Too Hip

The University of Maryland has generated a lot of press for its new football uniforms this season. Some fans have derided them as clownish while others seem to be enjoying all of the attention. Opinions seem to be evenly split.

They certainly are different.

They’ve been getting a lot of national attention too and that seems to be the point. This morning, on NPR’s Morning Edition, Steve Inskeep reported that “Maryland's athletic director says he intended for you to notice.”

How could you not. These outfits are about as subtle as a brick.

Apparently this gridiron fashion statement is expected to convey a “hip” image to potential recruits.

Funny, I never thought of football players as being that fashion forward. Then again I tend to be a little old school.
