One time I’m listening to the radio with my son, driving down the road and he said, ‘I don’t know why [Bob] Huggins ever left Cincinatti.’ I said, ‘Why? What are you talking about?’ He said, ‘You can recruit to Cincinatti in basketball now.’ I said, ‘Why you say that?’ He said, ‘Well, their uniforms.’ I said, ‘What do you mean?’ He said, ‘Their uniforms are tight and that’s why guys go to the school, because of their uniforms.’
So we’re going to try and have uniforms that are tight.
Even fans younger than 73 think these things are grotesque.
There aren't many times when jerseys should upset college football fans, but this is clearly one of them. If teams want to play dress-up for a big game every now and then, fine. But let's be reasonable.
These things don't belong on football players. They belong on wannabe stoner kids getting sweet air and doing killer tricks over dirt mounds with their bicycles.
The white stripes are supposed to resemble tusks. Nice try. It looks like Tusk threw up on Casey Dick after watching all his passes get dropped.
These things need to be donated to a boys club immediately. This is the SEC. Or the “SEC Conference,” as Petrino calls it. Uniforms in the class of conferences should have some sort of a classic look. They should not look like some off-brand jersey from a Wal-Mart rack defiled with 3-D numbers and zebra stripes.
