The Duke Blue Devils will be sporting a new look during their February 16th contest at Maryland.
Nike, the evil geniuses behind many of the aesthetically bizarre and innovative uniforms in the college sports universe, released photos of Duke’s new uniform, and it looks a little something like this:
Personally, I’m not a fan of the logo on the chest look. It reminds me of the Create-A-Team mode in the NBA 2k series, and I always thought those jerseys looked awfully cheap. These jerseys look a lot nicer than those, but it still just looks strange and awkward, having a giant logo where the letters have always been since the beginning of time.
Perhaps it will just take some getting used to, but I watched both Gonzaga and Michigan State wear their versions of the jersey, and it still looked every bit as awkward to me by the end of the game as it did at the beginning.
For the most part, the Twitterverse seems to be loving the uniforms, though, so I’ll shut up.
