UCLA Basketball Uniforms Universally Hated

UCLA's one-off Adidas uniforms, rolled out for the school's bid at Pac-12 basketball supremacy, are supposed to "stun your opponents" and convey a sense of motion that's "crazy fast," according to the sportswear maker.

But some fans think they're just plain crazy.

The website Deadspin got a hold of emails to the school confirming near-universal hatred for the Zubaz-style camo-ish sleeves and shorts:

The report says every single fan who emailed athletic director Dan Guerrero recently expressed displeasure with the new look.


One game with these laughably bad threads would be too many. The entirety of post-season play with these uniforms would literally be an affront to Mr. Wooden's legacy and the beautiful tradition of Bruin basketball. Please put an end to this. I implore you.

Even an assistant professor psychiatry, UCSD's Douglas C. Johnson, weighed in to say the looks were pscyo:

We're UCLA, not a circus. Encourage leadership support tradition and excellence, not bad style over substance. This is a no-brainer guys.

Alas, the uniforms were worn only once and will not make a comeback as 6-seeded UCLA vies for a championship at the NCAA tournament. Thank the lord.
