Reaction Mixed To New Maryland Football Uniform Unveiling

Maryland came out with a new, and expansive, set of jerseys on Monday night. And just like everything else pretty much, they are getting mixed reviews from the general twitterverse. Here is some of the reaction:

Jeff Barker at the Baltimore Sun:

 

The uniforms are part of an updating of Maryland's brand. The football uniforms and field markings — which in recent years have highlighted the word "Terps" — will more prominently display "Maryland" much as Texas football features "Texas" on its uniform fronts.

Matt Hinton at Yahoo:

You may or may not appreciate the creativity, but you have to give them credit for this much: They have seriously embraced the turtle thing. If you're a traditionalist looking for someone to blame, though, it's not the usual suspect for once: It's Baltimore's own Under Armour, headed by UM alum Kevin Plank, a former special teams captain for the Terp football team and current member of the university's Board of Trustees. He's not exactly Phil Knight, yet, but something tells me his latest may succeed in generating a little buzz this fall in an increasingly crowded arena.

Matt Bonesteel at the Washington Post:

Snap reaction: The all-black unis work much better than the Hoth-style all-whites. Some of them feature an intense amount of yellow. Others make me think of Iowa State.

The most important piece of reaction is something we can't see: how this will play with recruits. That was the big thing with these new jerseys and if that it is successful, that would be a huge help to the team. But I just can't see them or any other jersey swaying a recruits decision to go to one place or another. Not that I don't like them, I just don't think they are as important as they are making them out to be.

Maryland Football Jerseys: New Helmets Don't Feature A Logo

There is going to be a very mixed response to the new Maryland football jerseys. They are very modern, and even if they weren't, this is just the type of thing that people find something to disagree about. The aspect that may become the greatest point of contention is the helmets, which don't feature a logo at all. Here is what our Maryland blog Testudo Times had to say about them.

The helmets will be the most controversial point, I'm sure, particularly as they don't feature a logo at all: no "Maryland", no "Terps", no nothing. The Terrapins are now joining a select group without a logo on the helmet: Michigan, OSU, Penn State, BC, Notre Dame, Army, and Navy. Maybe Alabama, though I feel like the numbers are sort of a logo for them. That's some pretty select company (yes, even you, BC).

It's a clean look, for sure, but it is an interesting gamble. The helmet is the easiest piece of branding on a football jersey because you can literally just put whatever logo you want on there. But the new jerseys have enough going on that it doesn't really matter.

New Maryland Football Jersey Photos: Gold Jerseys Signal Major Departure From Past

Of all the new Maryland football jerseys, I think the gold ones are the most intriguing. The new uniforms were finally unveiled on Monday night, with Under Armour and CEO Kevin Plank present to cement the partnership. There were four different-colored jerseys and four different-colored pants, which means were were 16 combinations.

Here are the four gold jersey combinations. Thanks to Terps TV for the live stream from which these screenshots come.

What: Gold jerseys, black pants.

Model: Quintin McCree.

Thoughts: I can't put my finger on it, but I like the black top/gold pants combination better.

Picture_196_medium

What: Gold jerseys, white pants.

Model: Ronnie Tyler.

Thoughts: They're OK I guess - probably the best of all the gold tops - but they really don't blow me away either.

Picture_197_medium

What: Gold jerseys, gold pants.

Model: Davin Meggett.

Thoughts: Please go away. Nice camera skills, though.

Note: looks like nobody modeled gold jerseys and red pants. Probably for the best.

New Maryland Football Uniform Photos: White Jerseys Are A Mixed Bag

At long last, the new Maryland football uniforms were finally unveiled on Monday night. The new look, sponsored by Under Armour (who else?), featured four different colors for the pants and the jerseys. Multiply it up, and that means there were 16 possible color combinations unveiled during the ceremony.

Here is a look at all the different combinations involving white jerseys. Thanks to Terps TV for the live stream from which these screenshots come.

Picture_180_medium

What: White jersey, black pants.

Model: Cameron Chism.

Thoughts: Didn't get a great look, but this seems pretty un-Maryland to me. Then again, they do look pretty cool, so maybe a new look is good.

Picture_185_medium

What: White jersey, red pants.

Model: Matt Furstenberg.

Thoughts: Like the red jersey/white pants combo, these are pretty plain.

Picture_187_medium

What: White jersey, gold pants.

Model: Demetrius Hartsfield.

Thoughts: Too much like the Redskins.

Picture_188_medium

What: White jersey, white pants.

Model: A.J. Francis.

Thoughts: Yeah, let's retire these please.

New Maryland Football Uniform Photos: Black Jerseys Look Very Intriguing

The new Maryland football jerseys are out, and they certainly are striking. The new look, sponsored by Under Armour, featured four different color for the pants and the jerseys. Four times four is 16, so there are 16 different combinations.

Here is a look at all the black jerseys. Thanks to Terps TV for the live stream from which these screenshots come.

Picture_189_medium

What: Black jersey, white pants.

Model: Trenton Hughes.

Thoughts: I really like these as road jerseys, especially at night, where the contrast could throw off the other team. OK, maybe not, but any little edge is good, right?

Picture_191_medium

What: Black jersey, red pants.

Model: Darin Drakeford.

Thoughts: This is the only black model I really don't like. Those colors make absolutely no sense together, and the only reason to ever want to see this is to joke about it.

Picture_193_medium

What: Black jersey, gold pants.

Model: Kevin Dorsey.

Thoughts: Definitely a new look, but it's cool. Still, it's not as cool as...

Picture_202_medium

What: Black jersey, black pants.

Model: Kenny Tate.

Thoughts: ... this. This, my friends, is awesome. You want to bring new attitude to the Maryland program? Wear these jerseys all the time.

Picture_176_medium

What: Red jerseys, black pants.

Here they are, folks: your new Maryland football jerseys. The Terps unveiled four different colors for both the jerseys and the pants: yellow, black, white and red. That's 16 different combinations. Here is a picture of some of tops in the same shot, along with coach Randy Edsall.

Here is a photo of eight of the 16 combinations, via UMTerps.com: It also appears there is no logo on the helmets, which really is interesting.

The Terps have been sponsored by Under Armour for several years, and this uniform had been in the works for that entire time. Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank is a major donator to the program and spoke at the ceremony. The new uniforms will not have player names on the back, a decision new coach Randy Edsall made in an attempt to trumped the program over any individual player.
