Notre Dame Women's Team Decides To Do Away With New Adidas Uniforms


The Notre Dame women's basketball team did not enjoy wearing the widely-scrutinized Adidas jerseys that debuted at the Big East Tournament on Sunday.

The jerseys that are being worn by the basketball teams at Notre Dame, UCLA, Cincinnati, Louisville, Kansas and Baylor have received mixed reviews, but more people are disgusted by them than are actually fans.

The Irish wore the new jerseys during Sunday's Quarterfinal win over South Florida, but when asked about what they thought of them after the game, Coach Muffet McGraw said the team would vote on whether to continue wearing them or not, although McGraw did say she was a fan of the lime green.

Good Lord, is this March Madness or happy hour at Senor Frog's near Atlantis?

On Monday in the Semifinals against Louisville, the Irish came out wearing their regular white uniforms, meaning that most of the most of the players were not fans of the new look.

"I wasn't." junior guard Kayla McBride said while violently shaking her head in disapproval.

"No comment," Skylar Diggins calmly said.

McGraw was laughing as McBride and Diggins answered the question about the jerseys, making it seem like her players made their opinions quite clear.

Seems safe to say that those tiger stripescamoflauge insults to basketball jerseys everywhere will not be making an appearance in Tuesday's championship game.
