For the most part, I LOVE the Hopkins throwbacks! Here's what they were going for:
And here are some game shots:
I think it's cool how they tried to match the old-time elements, such as using the decals to approximate the design of the old helmets, and the leather color for the gloves and arm-pads. The helmet decals didn't quite leave enough black on the visor, and the blue didn't match that of the jerseys, but I give them an "A" for effort. My only other complaint is that Nike put the rear numbers way to high on the jersey (which seems to be their design choice for all their basketball jerseys, too); IMHO the originals look so much better placed down a little farther.
As for the Maryland duds, I have to admit that I thought they looked pretty cool, too -- certainly better than the football set last fall. Obviously, subtlety is not the idea, but I think these would be greatly improved if they didm't put the pattern inside the numbers, as it makes the red look like a different color than what's on the sleeves. There is definitely enough going on there without getting too cute with every design element... And I think I would outline the red numbers in white, which would match the flag pattern better.
