The football uni talk goes on...and on....and on. And that's a good thing, folks.
A conflicted rebirth " Crim Del Harris
Fantastic piece on the new unis, what they mean, and the rebirth of Maryland athletics under Kevin Anderson, Randy Edsall and Mark Turgeon. Seriously one of the best pieces of MD writing I've read.
Open Mikes: New-look college unis a good marketing tool? – USATODAY.com
Two writers from USA Today debate the new MD uniforms and the latest "uniforms as marketing tools" trend. Michael McCarthy says this:
"They’re a great idea — if you want to become a national laughingstock like the University of Maryland."
Sorry Mike, but I don't think Maryland a laughingstock right now. There is a big difference between not liking a uniform and being a laughing stock. It's not like Maryland lost 40-0 in that game. People are talking about Maryland football who never would have done so otherwise. Maryland isn't an extremely tradition rich program in football, so your entire argument is flawed. And you, along with most of the other writers out there, don't see the connection to the state and state flag nor do you understand that Maryland is trying to brand UMD as THE state school. You think they just pulled this design and colors out thin air to get people's attention. Thanks for doing your homework before writing.
When you win, no publicity is bad publicity " Local Sports " Cumberland Times-News
Great piece by the Cumberland Times talking about the football unis.
And that’s the point. Everybody in the country was talking Maryland football on Tuesday, which, in the long history of Maryland football, had never before happened, including when the Terps won the national championship in 1953.
Columnists | John Beilein's system could be deciding factor for 5-star Mitch McGary | The Detroit News
Great piece on Mitch McGary. It's Michigan focused, but sounds like Turgeon's style of coaching could keep MD in this till the end...
