    Pajama bottoms or ugly bathing suit trunks.

    It looks like we don't have a custom design. We have the same style as Northern Illinois on p.42 of the adidas catalog.

    We usually gotten new unis every 2 years. It'll be interesting to see what we go with, assuming we change styles. I think the best looking uni is the Bucknell uni on p.42. The worst, IMO, is the Texas A&M uni on p. 33.

    I think Mason would look pretty sharp in those Kansas-style uniforms on page 23.

    They all look OK.... nothing really stands out to me except the Citadel shorts. Not my cup of tea though.

    I actually kind of like the Texas A&M Jersey's but not the shorts. I personally think when the top third of the shorts are a different color, it looks like your underwear is hanging out.

    Maybe I'm too critical, but The Citadel shorts are awful.

    I'm not a fan of the TA&M jerseys. I've always thought the team logo on the back of the neck looked FPYCish.

    I say the sharpest uni from head to toe is the Bucknell jersey on p.42. If there's a logo on the back of the neck that disqualifies it for me.

    With that said, adidas has done a *great* job with some of their throwbacks.

    Did we wear Coll Green or Dark Green last two years? I prefer just green . . . assuming kryptonite green isn't an option.

    I prefer that the school just pick one damn color green (ie - the official school color) and stick to that, rather than having 7 different versions of green amongst the team, crowd, masonettes, chearleaders and EBA signage at any given game.

    I did notice Walter, you have 4 different greens in your sig/avatar/name ;)

    I have 3 in my avatar - my polo, wife's hoodie, floor paint - all different shades :super angry:

    Adidas isn't the only one with a swing-and-miss on uniforms. UA and Nike have had their share of bad desig
    Amen. Pick one green for all sports, fans, etc. I'd prefer to follow the A's color scheme:

    Those look like they're straight out of the trash bin of the 90s

    Unfortunately, for most of the adidas (non-throwback) designs they are either "bleh", "bad", or "awful." Our basketball unis are "bleh." Not ugly, but not cool by any stretch. They're just there.

    Now if we could pair the Rhode Island tops with the Miami shorts on p. 38 or the Nebraska shorts on p. 43 we might actually not be bland by adidas standards.

    Although I'd be fine with just copying these and calling it a day.

    If they're subtle I think they're good. I like the adidas retro jerseys the best. Their new stuff is rough, though, imo.

    Kids want something with a little pizazz, or swag as they say. I'm not up on 2017 slang.

    3 Big Reasons why Under Amour cooled off.
    1. Under Armour didn’t embrace fashion (Adidas sure did)
    - Unfortunately for Under Armour, it is faltering just at a time when one of its biggest competitors is flying. Adidas (ADDYY) stock is up this year almost as much as Under Armour stock is down, and in the German giant’s 2016 end-of-year earnings report it issued stunning guidance for 2017 and beyond. Under Armour, on the other hand, lowered its guidance.

    The rise of Adidas has eaten into footwear market share for both Nike and Under Armour. While Adidas’s U.S. sneaker share has risen to 11.4%, Under Armour’s has shrunk slightly to 2.5%. Nike, when taking into account Jordan Brand and Converse, still enjoys a lion’s share 54.6%.

    from same yahoo article.
