North Carolina Basketball Unveiled Bizarre New Shorts At 'Late Night With Roy'

North Carolina's version of Midnight Madness, "Late Night with Roy," was held last night, and the Tar Heels unveiled more than just a national championship banner.

North Carolina is one of three schools to have special shorts designed by Just Don, who has collaborated with Jordan Brand for the occasion.

Michigan and Marquette also have Just Don shorts, but those both use the full school name splashed across the front of the shorts. The Tar Heels' version uses the interlocking 'NC' logo, and... well... it makes for an interesting look.

From last night:

A large segment of Twitter had the same reaction many of you are probably having to these shorts: https://twitter.com/CochraneMelissa/status/918999120840404993

Some people were big fans though.

In this case, "whatever" is $250, retail.

There is also a Carolina Blue version of the shorts. They can be found at Jordan Brand stores or at Just Don's website.

Apparently this look was for last night only, and will not be worn during the season. Most fans are probably relieved, but clearly some people are ready to throw down some serious coin to wear that UNC logo front and center.
