Awful Terrapin (Maryland's helmet)

#55495 3 years, 1 month ago
Was it just me, or were the helmuts Maryland was donning last night one of the most hideous things seen in sports?

Absolutely the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen in the NCAA. Who in their administration was actually dumb enough to look at those and think that was what a team should wear??!! It's like a bucket of paint spilled on a NASCAR flag! Poor Terps!

I don't know if it is 'just yous' who feel this way, but I do not agree with yous. They simply resemble the state flag. Most football helmets normally have the same design (or color) on both sides - obviously. So this is something different. There is nothing wrong with being different in my world. I see the Maryland state flag as both unique and beautiful.

Of course you are entitled to your opinion - as I am of my differing one.

Well, I still don't like them, but at least they do make a whole lot more sense after your explanation, SS! : )

Understanding that is their state flag. Pretty tasteless interpretation of it though.

LOL great minds on the same path (I think) ...I think its pretty conclusive that Stevie Wonder designed that helmet & Uniform ( Ray Charles woulda been a possibility but he's no longer a viable suspect) . State flag or not, I literally cannot think of a more hideous get up in any sport ever. As Sue noted above, how any "normal" person could look at that mess and say that looks good is beyond me.
