Our team is more fashionable than your team

Notice anything different about the Huskies’ attire at the Selection Sunday ceremony?  Yes, they were wearing sweatsuits.  Yes, they all matched.  No, that wasn’t your ordinary sweatsuit material.  That was, in fact, velour.  Yes, velour.  Nothing says fashion like matching velour sweatsuits.

The Dawgs have always been up on the trends.  You may remember back in 2004 when they wore the Retro Jordan XIII as a team shoe (White/Wheat color scheme), perhaps the only non-sponsored Jordan team to rock the J’s.  Now they’ve taken the luxury gear and applied it to their warmups.  It’s straight ballin’.  Your team can’t keep up with this.
