Maryland hadn't known the word subtle when it came to uniforms - until this week.
(@darrenrovell)Under Armour introduced new "Black Ops" uniforms for Saturday's game against Florida State. The uniforms are black — almost entirely black — and have the Maryland flag in a different charcoal pattern on the shoulder pads and the helmet.
The numbers are yellow with Maryland in red across the front.
Maryland actually wore "White Ops" uniforms for a game at West Virginia earlier this season that weren't too bad, but these are definitely the best of the lot.
Never thought I'd say this about a Maryland uniform, but these are quite slick. They're bold, but unassuming and keep with the tradition of celebrating the state and the flag. Under Armour has really struggled with Maryland's uniforms, but these are definitely a home run.
