Maryland alternate uniforms: Black vs. Gold
















 Time for some more Shell Games crack reporting.

Did you know that Maryland is the only D-1 school with FOUR team colors? It’s true, my friend.  And with all these colors come many opportunities for uniform sales designs. And ever since Nike took it over, everyone’s gotten a little more greedy inventive. Hence the gold and black alternate uniforms.

They’re both tight unis. No question. So the real question is, which one has better karma?

As you know, on Tuesday the Terps rocked the blacks at Carolina but got rocked 108-91 (nice word play, MASH,  hey, thanks, MASH, I appreciate that).  But did you know they first wore the blacks back in 2004, and lost a scrimmage to some Italian team?  That is not a good sign. Not hospitaliano as I know it. After that, a superstitious Gary Williams shelved the jerseys, supposedly forever. But back they came for the Terps’ 2006 ACC tournament game against Boston College, which the Terps promptly lost 80-66. And now there’s the Carolina game. The lesson here: get the hell rid of those black jerseys right the hell now. Burn them in the alley and watch the ghosts fly out.  They look pretty good, so maybe down the road break them out against Central Delaware Tech or something and try to build a new legacy. But for now, they need at least a few years of non-existence.

Now for the golds. Of course, these are a holdover from the Lefty Driesell years, but Maryland first wore the new-school golds last season in a 73-48 win over Holy Cross. They rocked the gold again a week ago in a big 73-68 win over Miami.

So by my count, they’re 0-3 in the blacks and 2-0 in the golds. There you have it. Case closed. Gold uniforms for every game. This is the answer we’ve all been looking for. We’re through the looking glass here, people.  You can mail the Pulitzer to my house.

    … and this has been the first and last installment of Terrapins Uni-Watch. The gold unis are, how do you say, abodonza! Maybe we could intro a fifth color at some point. Testudo brown with some breast cancer awareness pink trim would look bad ass.

    Thanks for expressing your ideas in this article. The other
    thing is that whenever a problem develops with a pc motherboard, persons should not have some
    risk associated with repairing that themselves because if it is not done right
    it can lead to irreparable damage to all the laptop.
    Most commonly it is safe to approach the dealer of a laptop for the repair of that motherboard.
    They have got technicians who have an expertise in dealing with laptop motherboard complications
    and can carry out the right prognosis and execute repairs.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally
    educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on
    the head. The problem is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    May I just say what a relief to uncover an individual who genuinely understands what they are talking
    about on the net. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light
    and make it important. A lot more people ought
    to read this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular
    given that you definitely possess the gift.
