Maryland Minute - 09.13.11 - The Empire Strikes Back - Nike Releases New Uniforms for Several Teams

Use the force, young O'Brien.
A long time ago,
In a galaxy far, far away...

Episode V:
The Empire Strikes Back
There was much rejoicing in the State of Maryland
after the Terps successfully defeated the Hurricane Death Star from Miami
while wearing their new Under Armor Pride Uniforms.
But off in the distance, the evil Nike empire lurked in the shadows, ready to
strike back with new uniforms of their own. West Virginia was prepared to possibly
showcase those new unis in their game against Maryland this Saturday....

 

Nike unveiled new unis for several teams, including WVU. Can't wait to see what we'll wear. Hope you all enjoyed the Star Wars intro...

Uni combos to be every Wednesday on Randy Edsall's Twitter
Can't tell if I like this idea or not. It's gets people following Edsall on Twitter, I guess, but it lowers the surprise factor on gameday. -BB

More reason why the Terps uniforms are great - they inspired someone to write a letter to the editor in the Sun.

Lefty or Gary? Terps honor Williams with court name - NCAA Division I Mens Basketball - CBSSports.com
"All Lefty Driesell did was put Maryland on the national basketball map. All Gary Williams did was bag the school a national title. Jeff Goodman says naming its home court after Williams was no easy, iconic choice."

Tracking the Terps: Maryland plans to honor Lefty Driesell - Jeff Barker - baltimoresun.com
Looks like Maryland will also honor Lefty. I think it's long overdue. We should put a statue in front of Comcast of Lefty that shows him driving a Cadillac with the ACC Tourney Trophy strapped to the hood.

Kicker Nick Novak agrees to 2-year deal with Chargers to replace Kaeding - The Washington Post
Make that 29 former Terps in the NFL! Congrats, Nick! I was at the Georgia Tech game in 2001 when you kicked that field goal. One of my favorite football memories...until the band got attacked marching back to our buses...
