They Think It's a Black Eye for Bruins

December 05, 1998

Do the Bruins realize how ridiculous their basketball team looked in those black road uniforms? Why don't they just add a skull and crossbones logo and change their name to the Raiders?

As a Bruin supporter for more than 50 years, I can put up with the horrible new colors of the basketball uniforms, but why didn't Coach Lavin make an attempt to get rid of the floppy shorts that go down to the ankles? Coach Wooden did all right with the short shorts.

Please tell me these new "cool" duds were for preseason tournament play only, or I may be forced to become an Indiana fan.

I remember Larry Brown tried to push Carolina blue on us. Then Jim Harrick had those home yellow uniforms. The reason they tried to soil our tradition is because they were not Bruins, so they didn't know better. Now it's Lavin's turn.

For the first time since UCLA began televising its basketball games, I turned a game off in the middle.

Whatever happened to the powder blue that was good enough for 11 NCAA championships? Or is Coach Lavin such a fashion plate that tradition is out of style?

Oh, my, the Bruins in black! What's next, the Trojans wearing sissy blue?
