Look, NU, as an alumna, I’m asking, nay, pleading with you: cut it out with these hideous special uniforms.
Back when the Wildcats inked a deal with Under Armour, it was exciting. Now, it’s turned disastrous. First the football team wore those Wounded Warrior ensembles that had good intentions but were poorly executed. And now, the men’s basketball team will be rocking these duds on Sunday against Illinois:
Unlike the Wounded Warrior garb, the hoops team apparently helped design this outfit. The jersey itself is fine, really, but those shorts…no.
I get that they’re supposed to include landmarks and symbols of the team, but these kind of look like something I would have made when asked to design a uniform in high school. I mean, could they not have stuck to just the skyline and school crest? Or just a few images, not half of the clip art library? And why are there stripes on the back? I have so many questions.
Our teams have already had tough seasons. Let’s not make it worse by adding silly uniforms to the mix.
