UniWatch: "UCLA" Stands for ‘Unbelievably Crappy-Looking Attire’

From Paul Lukas at UniWatch:

UCLA debuted their new super-stretchies last night, and it was a complete disaster. All the same problems we’ve seen with NFL stretchies were on display: teeny-tiny TV numbers; NOB lettering that looks like it was done at the mall; NOBs and other parts of the jersey being stretch-distorted; and so on.

But the saddest part was the team’s UCLA stripes, which were severely truncated and often distorted. I mean, come on, people — this is UCLA, the school that invented UCLA stripes, and you’re gonna leave them with this? That’s just pathetic.

These stripes do not deserve to be called UCLA stripes. What shall we call them — Ree-didas stripes? Ree-diculous stripes? The floor is open for other suggestions.

And if there are any teams out there wearing true UCLA stripes (or whatever the modern approximation might be, since genuine wraparounds are a thing of the past), those teams should no longer be stained with the now-disgraced term "UCLA." So if there’s a school out there upholding the spirit of UCLA inserts, let’s rename the stripes for that school. Again, your nominations are welcome.

Read rest of the post here. I am not really a fashion expert but I think he has a very good point re. the "UCLA stripes." Thoughts?

Then again we have so many other issues to deal with in this program.

GO BRUINS.
