The public is slowly prepping duke to be ready to finish behind MU for Wojo after we beat them in the championship this year.

Then the worries about Wojo taking over Coach K's job are baseless.

Why would he leave Marquette for a lesser program?

Kansas’s, Xavier’s, and Nova’s “alternates” are as good as it gets, along with UNC’s regular uniforms.

MU’s definitely deserving of top 10. Some of Oregon’s are nice and others are awful. Kentucky’s are usually nice.

Sorry gang, they're all dull.

Nothing compares to our early 1970s uniforms that were once described as "made for color television" or the untucked look we had when we won the NCAA in 1977.

I don't understand the artistry of block letters in school colors.

I think it would be hysterical, however, if the team managed to recreate it at some point.  It might be a little tough to track down enough 70's-style tuxedos that would fit our bigger guys.

Also, wouldn't it be cool for NMD if it was a tradition to wear a throwback uni?

Hysterical yes, but I wouldn't want it to be the team photo. Let them develop their own personality. One of the things that irks me about MU's tradition is it's so stuck in the past even if we had a run of three championships old timers would still be saying "it's not Al level".

Now for NMD I 100% agree, a bunch of other schools in the Big east do it so I don't see why we can't.

I don't understand the artistry of block letters in school colors.

1970s fashion was anything but dull. That doesn't mean it was good. Giant lapels? Plaid suits? Flared jeans? All fashion innovations that have since been left behind. I also don't think Marquette's uniforms from this period are beyond criticism.

Take a close look at the attached pics. In the first ("MU Untucked Uniforms"), the strength is a unique and simple design -- including the untucked jersey, school name at the bottom and a distinctive, contrasting color combination. But the numbers are way oversized. The socks are obnoxious. And the shoes don't match anything else.

In the second ("1977 Untucked Uniform"), again, the untucked jersey and colors are very unique. But the arrowhead design on the side (very cool) isn't repeated anywhere else -- such as on the side of the shorts, which feature a stripe instead. These elements could be more cohesive and complementary. I'm not crazy about the mismatched colors of the jersey and shorts. And are any basketball fans longing for the return of short shorts?

Today's uniforms may be nowhere near as innovative. But simplicity isn't a negative when it comes to fashion design.

Dean and the bumblebees winning the NIT, with Dean being the MVP.  Al had everybody talking about the untuck jerseys as well.  He was an innovator and
I am sure the players loved the idea that a player designed them.

Or how about this throwback? Definitely one of the cheesiest "coaching" photos I've ever seen.

Coach Chandler: Okay, boys. Take a knee.

Gene Ronzani: Sure thing, coach!

Coach Chandler: Alright, who can tell me what this is?

Ernie Kukla: A basketball?

Coach Chandler: That's right! And it's a darned important part of the game. You might even say the most important part. All right, I'm saying it. The basketball is the most important part of the game. That's why it's called the sport of basketball. Everyone got it?

10 worst uniforms?  I don't like the new Wisconsin ones. Notre Dame pee greens.  Not a fan of IU's prized candy striped warm-ups. DePaul's got better last year but their old ones screamed low major. Not a fan of Cuse's either.  Miami's new ones are pretty out there especially when hungover.

But the numbers are way oversized. The socks are obnoxious. And the shoes don't match anything else.

The first picture was so bad it is almost campy. Any amateur photographer knows not to line a group shot up against the window. Nor should you have your photo include the stenciled wall writing behind Hank Raymonds and the coaches. And then there's the first row and the way our heros are sitting.

It's like they tried to make this one really bad.

It's hard to judge the unis when the quality of the photo is so bad. Also, as to the shoes matching, in those days, basketball shoes came in two colors --  black and white. The gold socks, I'd probably agree with you on but design was contemporary for the 1970s.

Agree though that the bumblebees were the best ever. So distinctive they scream, "We are Marquette!"

Do you have a link?

I'm guessing no new uniforms.  I think all the picture day and video board stuff is already done?  And if new uniforms were coming out I'd assume we'd see some "sneak peak" photos or videos from MUBB like we did when these ones were coming out.

Maybe new shoes.  Marquette did just sign a 5 year extension with Jordan Brand.

Yup. And I wanted something fresh there too. Changing up the look is part of MU's history I'd love to have back.

As for this current set, at the very least I'd like some of the forced 100th Anniversary elements taken off. Like the faux belt on the waist, American flag, etc.

Don't know if you catch it - but being the 33s and considering they did the same to the 31s and 32s, they pulled inspiration from the Jordan 3.  It's not as obvious with this model as it was in the previous 2, but it's there. 

I think they look awful, but if they perform better than 30-32, then it's a win.
