Adidas unveils new uniforms for postseason

Apparently Adidas isn’t superstitious when it comes to not changing things heading into the postseason.

On Tuesday morning, the company revealed new uniforms for Baylor, Louisville and Cincinnati for the upcoming tournaments.

At first glance, the Cincinnati and Louisville ones are pretty solid. Louisville has the metallic gray that everyone seems to be wearing these days, although the stripes on the shorts don’t really fit what “Cardinals” do. Cincinnati’s stripes on the shorts make sense, since they’re the “Bearcats” and all, and the black-on-black jersey and shorts look is nice.

And then we have Baylor. I would say it's a disaster, but some people like the really, really bright colors. So I'll say it's tough to look at for a long time. I personally prefer a hint of neon when it comes to uniforms. Either sneakers or socks -- but not the entire thing in a monochromatic neon. 

First of all, they look like they glow in the dark. I’m not sure if it’s a neon green, highlighter yellow, or something else. The Bears also have the stripes on the shorts, which in this case probably helps onlookers not gouge their eyes out. The best part? The neon socks and shoelaces. That really ties it all together.

Which new uniform do you think is the best?

Update: Apparently Baylor also had a black uniform released today (per a comment below). And it's awesome. Seriously. Check out the alternate here

Absolutley!  I am guessing they are making sure their "non-pro" players don't have to spend the extra money on vests when they get their jobs with the road consturction crew.

Which one of these is one of the games "Great Powers"?  Yep, when I think of NCAA Basketball I think: UCLA, Kansas, Duke, N Carolina, Cincy, Louisville?  Negative.

I would rather pack my rectum full of M80's and squat over a flamming Hibachi than watch a game played with these uniforms on.


Classic.........LMAO! Gave you five stars for that post.

Right now, I am placing an order from Adidas for Baylor's Safety Green jerseys for my warehouse workers. That way I can keep track of their whereabouts.

Louisville and Cincinnati official school colors are black and red for over 100 years. The Oregon, I mean Baylor uniform burns my eyes.

Well, if Baylor players ever have to do emergency road construction at night for some reason, they'll be visible.

Do Baylor fans even care? It has been a long, long time since I've read a single comment on a thread or blog from a Baylor fan. Hell, does Baylor even have any fans? Or are all the Bears hibernating now that RG3 has said hasta la vista?
