08:02 PM ET 02.28 | The NCAA changes uniforms more than the cast of Friends changed partners, but the latest incarnation of what college uniforms are going to look like are so hilariously atrocious that it needs to be pointed out. Adidas unveiled new college basketball uniforms Thursday that garnered overwhelmingly negative reactions from everyone who has eyes. If you remember the late '90s and early 2000s, colored animal print was a big deal for about a week, but someone at Adidas thought it would be a good idea to get nostalgic about it and has incorporated the style into the new look. And it's not a case where there's a little stripe to recognize how poor our fashion taste consistently is, Adidas put the animal print design on the shorts -- like all of the shorts. As if that wasn't already a crime punishable by death, the folks at Adidas are making sleeved jerseys the new norm. Before this, the appeal of all the uniform changes was to attract students to your school (as if that wasn't already a horribly under-thought idea). I'm not sure about you, but animal print shorts are exactly the reason I wanted to play college sports and I'm sure it's going to draw in thousands of new athletes -- we may even tap into the overseas market and drain it.

Someone needs to shop some volleyballs and sand into the photo. These aren't basketball uni's they're beachwear.

I knew this was a "FanSided" article from the title. That said, they're obviously terrible.

FanSided is Adidas' biotch. This blurb is a product placement ad masquerading as news.

Who spilled the shamrock shake? Seriously, could they have picked a worse color green for my Irish? Dammit all...

All of them look like PJ's to me, but ND's is the worst. Sorry your team has to wear that stuff.

If the traditional powers - that's you UCLA and Kansas - wear this crap, all is lost.

I can't imagine those Zubaz in Pauley
