RED ALERT we have #RedOps!
— Maryland Terrapins (@umterps) November 7, 2016
Nothing erases the memory of a 59-3 loss more than announcing that you will be wearing hideous uniforms in your upcoming game. How can you even get excited about something this ugly? I will, however, say that these are not the worst uniforms Maryland has ever worn. Remember when they wore the uniforms that looked their state flag uniforms? Those were up there with some of the worst uniforms I’ve ever seen in my life. It literally looked like a crayon box exploded on them.
But back to these gaudy “Red Ops” uniforms. These look like a knock-off version of the NFL Color Rush. I’ve always thought the NFL should have teams wear throwback uniforms instead of the Color Rush for Thursday Night Football. But that’s an issue for another blog. I’m not a fan of the Color Rush, and I’m not a fan of these. All black/white/gray uniforms look nice. All “team color” uniforms are just overwhelming. Maryland’s uniforms will be as ugly as the score on Saturday when they play Ohio State.
UNIFORM GRADE: D-
