Alternate uniforms and college football fashion have become one of the most debatable off-field aspects of the sport in recent years. With the help of Under Armour, Maryland stepped in the Oregon-level of alternate uniforms in 2011. The most talked about alternates were debuted in the Terps' 31-24 season opening win against Miami.

The "Maryland Pride" uniforms (seen above) are one of the most aggressive and obvious representations of a state flag on a uniform. The school released photos of a new home and away look for the team in 2012, but "Maryland Pride" uniforms were missing.

But that does not mean they will not be available in 2012. Hydro Graphics Inc. posted the photo below to their Facebook page, with the following message:

Back for more in 2012! Getting ready for the new season…MARYLAND PRIDE is alive and kicking…

Maryland had several combinations of Under Armour uniforms to choose from last year, and coach Randy Edsall left it to the captains to make the decision. While the school has not promoted the return of the tortoise helmets or matte black helmet - jersey combination, we at least can assume the Terps' will be wearing more than what was released earlier this month.
