Something that was a point of pride for the Panthers at the end of last season has been on my mind for a couple weeks: the bright yellow Adidas shoes.
Why? Well, the reason is the Maryland Terrapins. Those awful uniforms the Terps got so much attention for did just that – they brought attention to the Terps. And like Oregon, Maryland will never wear the same uniform twice.
We don’t have a shoe company whose founder graduated from Milwaukee – yet – so we can’t go that far. But like Boise State with the blue turf, can’t we have an iconic image associated with our team?
Why not the bright yellow shoes? No one else does this shtick for more than a game, and if we brought the yellow shoes back permanently – or better, a school color gold – we could accomplish that “iconic image” in a cheap way.
They were enough of an image to be covered by Lance Allan of TMJ4 and could be our basketball team’s signature look.
What do you think?
