I'm not sure if that uniform is any different, Iverson just has his shirt untucked so you can't see the top of the shorts.

That is that uniform, but the untucked jersey is covering the blue part with the swirls.

look sharp. Trivia question: Which college team was the first to wear the untucked shirt?

I think I know this. Probably wrong, as usual.

If Kuran can regularly make threes, I don't care what they wear.

What I wrote on the other thread-

ace wrote:Overall, I really like them. The script is perfect- classic looking and no more weird lettering (the angles on D and O, the capital I that looked like a lowercase l). I like having the numbers and lettering match, and the consistent dark with the light trim looks good. The interlocking RI is back on the shorts, which I think is a good look.



Seton Hall wore these one-piece looking uniforms at some point (maybe the late 80's?) that I'm still scarred by. I think those are the worst I've ever seen.

That's who I was thinking of. Hope we're right.lol

People would kid that their uniforms were designed by Frederick's of Hollywood. All McGuire was all about showmanship.

Like Ace, as long as they perform as well as we expect, I don't care what they wear. BTW, when blaming Adidas for them, doesn't Hurley and/or the team have a say in the design? If so, if they like it, it doesn't matter what we think.

I think it's important for everyone on here to be realistic. Adidas' elite level is different than Nike in the sense that Adidas makes solid attempts each year in being creative. If you've seen any of their recent commercials you are aware of that. Nike on the other hand is about engineering uniforms that are specifically designed to adhere to school's tradition or be cookie cutter in some sense. The only real shoe company that gets wild and crazy with their school's is UA, but the quality of their sneakers is still something to be desired in comparison to Nike and Adidas. That's evident when it comes to pro contracts. Maybe we should all be a little less negativity opinionated and happy we have what we have and headed in the direction we are as a program when we were a doormat when Dan and the crew got here...

I don't mind the horns IDEA, but wish they wouldn't just stop at a clean line, rather they fade or somthing. Everything else is a nice upgrade, the RI and blue lines on the shorts, tops looks CLEAN.

I absolutely HATE to agree with this post because it is written by my brother and I NEVER admit he is right (because he is usually wrong), but damnit I was thinking the exact same thing. If they made it fade out it would have been sick.

However, just about the only time I've hated jerseys was Louisville's in 2013 and they had a pretty good year by winning the national championship. Like everyone has alluded to, they could show up in purple t-shirts for all I care, I just want on court production.

Adidas should have put the ram horns on the back of the shorts. It kind of looks like the shorts are being worn backwards currently.

To me they look like a motif of the Rams horns...maybe I am wrong, I think i was first to draw that conclusion and then people ran with it.
Maybe it is just a solid line with swirls to it but to me it was some designers attempt to customize them for the Rams.

I don't hate them as much as others, though i agree they arent executed that great...i am happy that we have something unique to Rhody and whether wrong or not they tried to trick them out specifically for our team.

I don't like being negative, but they looked worse in person. It's like the uniform is clean and perfect then someone accidental spilled ink on their crotch. I'll forget about it once I see them in action.

Oh interesting, I never even thought waves but now that you say it I could kind of see that to. Although I guess the fact that nobody can be quite sure exactly what they are means they probably missed the mark on what they were going for.

I'm sure adidas can whip out new shorts w/o the swirls/Fannie pack in a weeks time if URI wanted that - so, it comes down to - does uri want this ?

How they don't see this looks ridiculous is beyond me

FYI; From what I know, the players are the ones who give input on what they want the jerseys to look like & they approve final design.

With that said, there's a 0% chance that some negative feedback on here will result in design changes.
