This weekend’s South Carolina vs. LSU game became a bit uglier. The Gamecocks have announced they will wear their Under Armor “Battle” jerseys on Saturday. Steve Spurrier is “not real big on those fancy uniforms:”
“It looks pretty good,” Spurrier said at the time. “We showed it to the players, and they liked it. Of course, they like anything a little different and fancy. I more believe in the traditional uniforms we’ve been doing. I’m not real big on those fancy uniforms. If it’s a big game, I would rather wear our normal stuff.”
We’re not fans of using camo to trivialize actual battle. Aside from that these are garish. When it comes to aesthetics, Under Armor has the subtlety of a sledge hammer. In other instances it’s for a good cause at least.
