Everybody remembers those uniforms that the Terps football team brought out last year in their opening night game against Miami on national TV. The overly prideful of the state of Maryland jerseys that sometimes had the Maryland flag on them? Well they are back as you can see from the picture at the top and they are basically the same ones as the football jerseys but they are for the basketball team. Personally I think the white and black ones look decent, the red ones look bad and the yellow ones look horrible but I have never been a fan of the recent trend of the Terps hoops team wearing yellow. Maryland is trying to work with Under Armour (which is Baltimore based) to make themselves unique so they can attract more recruits and bring more attention to their program. These uni’s definitely do that and while I am not sure the effect it will have on the recruits (just let the Harrison twins customize their own jerseys for all I care) it definitely will bring the same effect that the football jerseys did by bringing attention to Maryland and the program but lets hope that the basketball team can actually put that attention to good use with a good season next year.
As for that dreadful football team they are making a change too going with a new football field (as shown below). At first they were going to go with some sort of cray look mimicking Oregon in some way but decided to just to with a more traditional plain green field. The only notable design feature is the alternating light/dark color bands, similar to Oregon. The biggest thing here is that they are putting in field turf which is a great idea in my opinion. Too many times last year whether it be after bad weather or a long game, the field would look messed up and just horrible with the grass. The field turf will always look nice and you won’t have to deal with all the field work. I like the Maryland flags in the end zone and the MARYLAND written in red across midfield. To me it shows school and state pride without going overboard like the jerseys do. The field is set to be unveiled in August so obviously it will be ready for next season.
