Unless you live in a cave or under a rock, you saw the terrible Maryland Terrapins football uniforms that they featured last night on ESPN during their showdown with the Miami Hurricanes. Here are some of the worst uniforms in the history of College Baseball that we were able to come across. This includes some current day uniforms from Virginia Tech’s multiple crazy uniforms to Florida State playing with banana yellow uniforms (yes, pants too) during the late 80’s and early 90’s.
