Have you seen the adidas camo jerseys for NCAA March Madness? PHOTOS.

Expect to see these new adidas jerseys for select schools during the NCAA March Madness. Reactions to these camo unis have been mixed. Some love 'em. Some don't. And yeah, you notice that Louisville, UCLA and Baylor will be rockin' sleeves just like the Golden State Warriors. Yup, the sleeves. It seems weird now but in the 80s and 90s, it was normal for players to wear cotton t-shirts under their jerseys. Check out Patrick Ewing during his Georgetown days:

Or how different are these 2013 sleeved unis from the cut-off shirt JJ Redick wore under his jersey during his years at Duke? I remember watching the Evansville Purple Aces rock sleeved jerseys during March Madness in the 90s.

Wearing a cotton shirt under the jersey was a huge thing even in the UAAP and PBA in the 80's and 90's. Ateneo players wore them. La Salle players wore them. Everyone wore them. In the PBA, players who weren't feeling well were allowed to wear cotton shirts (remember this was the pre-dri-fit era) under their jerseys. If you've been watching basketball long enough like I have, sleeves aren't shocking.

But those camo patterns on the shorts....ah well...there's always room for an open-minded discussion on those. MH
