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

I second that, Woody! I don't want Adidas or Nike or anyone getting cutesy with the uniforms of one of the college game's great powers. Cutesy uniforms are for wannabes like Baylor. Neon yellow? What are they anyway - basketball players, or school crossing guards?

Baylor just can't do anything right, can they? They can't play well against ranked competition, they disappoint the media and only finish 4th, they can't even dress right.

Memo to adidas: Stay away from KU!  The Jayhawks don't need you poisoning them with this garbage--we'll stick with the Crimson and Blue!

WOW, for Baylor's sake I hope they use the black alternate instead of the neon lime green.
