The look of bemusement on many Washington players is priceless.

During a Tuesday morning meeting, new coach Chris Petersen "introduced" new uniforms for the Husky football team complete with the "W" logo plastered multiple places, a retro Husky logo on the helmet and "Dawgs" on the rear of the pants. They're not too pretty.

The players could not come to a consensus as to what was going on. Some were laughing, apparently cognizant of the fact that it was April Fool's day. You could tell others were really trying to decipher if these were new uniforms for 2014.

Petersen revealed the joke by repeating a mantra to his team about being here "in the now." And asking them what "now" was. After the punch line, you can audibly hear one player yell "That's terrible!"

The uniforms? Yeah, pretty terrible. The joke? Not bad at all. Petersen had some players going. And it was better than what Oklahoma tried on Twitter.
