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

Cincy is bad azz.....five stars for the Bearcats.

Baylor....wow...Chartruse (sp)....really.  Is that an unfair advatage or disadvantage?

Louisville....I think I see some an Orange glow about them.  They are quite pleasing to me.  Put RP in a Orange Suit to go wid those uni's and I think they are on to something.

Looks like Oregon's influence has spread. The newer, the uglier. At least the Cincy players will have something to wear in jail.

I think they are all very ugly.  But I am not surprised that I feel that way, as most new uniform changes, in all sports, I find to be hideous.  These are no exception, but Baylor is taking hideous to NEW LEVELS!!  BLECH!

Optical yellow might be a mistake.  It's far easier to track the color with your peripheral vision than black is, better to blend in on a back cut so every defensive player on the floor doesn't see you coming from the corner of their eye.   I think they look cool though.

 Every school has to have black or grey uniforms, even though those are not school colors. Urban kids all want to wear black and grey. If they had their choice they would wear all black, black numerals, black lettering, black sleeves, black headbands, black socks, and of course black shoes. They think it makes them look more "threatening", and somehow makes them tough. Guess if they wore all black, opponents would be afradi to play them huh? What a load of crap.

Except that there are studies that show wearing all black does make a person look bigger or more intimidating. Thats part of the reason I wear all black as a keeper. Also, you can't really stain black. Blood and stuff won't show up.
