March 5, 2007—Looks like those baggy shorts so popular among college hoops teams may finally be on their way out. Taking their place? Really, really baggy shorts. Starting tomorrow night, four top schools—Arizona, Florida, Ohio State, and Syracuse—will don Nike's System of Dress, a radical new look that brings Raf Simons–style proportion-play to the hard court. Complementing the aforementioned shorts are formfitting jerseys ten inches smaller in the torso, resulting in a second-skin look that's more Bode Miller than Ben Wallace. Players will also be able to customize their uniforms by adding options like padded shorts (to protect against the errant knee or elbow) and Dwyane Wade–style leg wraps. "There's sort of that tattoo mentality in basketball of guys wanting to share a similar look but also stand out within that look," explains Hans George, GM of Nike's global basketball business. "We expect that they make take some of the componentry and do something we might not really have imagined ourselves." Time will tell whether the new look catches on with more traditionally minded programs—something tells us Coach K will be a tough sell—but one thing's for certain: Those nut-huggers you wore in junior high aren't coming back anytime soon.

Nike System of Dress jerseys, $75, shorts, $60. Available at www.niketown.com, select Nike retailers, and at campus bookstores of the four debut teams.

Seems like the kind of thing that people will not like at first but will get used too as they are used more.

What a ridiculous F__King idea. Make the players wear a jersey that actually fits, and then make them wear a pair of shorts 4 sizes too big and call it a "new line" of jersey "fashion".

Anything to make a buck I guess.

Well, hey......you know what they say.......it doesnt matter how you play, as long as you look good doing it. :rolleyes:

Noone is going to grab your shorts when you are on the way to the rim - but they will grab at your jersey. Cooking spray does not work in college basketball, so this is the next best thing.

I doubt anyone cares what you think - but if 18 year old kids that play basketball (good) think this is cool, this is what I would want to see.

I see that you went with the "get off the lawn" response. Are you the guy at the mall that sits on a bench and calls everyone a punk as they walk by?

That looks ridiculous. If you're gonna go with tight fitting jerseys, why the super huge, loose fitting shorts? It does not look right.

To act like this isn't a marketing ploy to get everyone to rebuy jerseys is just dumb. We know what it is. If the public buys it then Nike won.

One good thing though......for Buckeye fans that are tired of opposing teams pulling and tearing at Oden's jersey for position, this may be a blessing.
