The University of Michigan’s mens basketball team has some of the best uniforms that college basketball has to offer.

Make that “had” some of the best uniforms.

Going into the final year of a deal with Adidas, Michigan athletics are putting up with one more season of questionable designs before Nike takes over. The football team’s road jerseys have already been redesigned, per the request of Jim Harbaugh.

Now, Adidas has gotten their hands on Michigan’s maize-colored basketball uniforms one last time. The jersey stays pretty much identical to past seasons, however, it’s the shorts that come into question.

The shorts have some sort of weird stripe pattern on them for…..some reason?

This isn’t the first time Adidas has messed with Michigan’s largely traditional jerseys. They mainly introduce special tournament uniforms around every March to lackluster reviews.
