The "Maryland Pride" uniforms that garnered the nation's attention in 2011 are back, but this time in black. The school's official Twitter account released photos of the state-flag inspired uniform design, which the Terps will wear at home against Georgia Tech on Saturday.
The game is a must-win for Maryland (4-4, 2-2 ACC), who will be starting freshman linebacker Shawn Petty at quarterback due to a shortage of healthy quarterbacks on the roster. Last week true freshman Caleb Rowe -- the fourth-string quarterback -- suffered a season-ending knee injury against Boston College. The Terps started the season 4-1, but injuries and late-game miscues have hurt their chances of reaching bowl eligibility -- a huge turnaround from Randy Edsall's 2-10 debut. After Georgia Tech, Maryland closes out its schedule against Florida State, Clemson and North Carolina.
Personally, I'm a much bigger fan of this look than the one we saw against Miami last season. Not sure how I feel about the shoes, but I'll give a thumbs-up to the rest of the outfit.
