As the Cincinnati Bearcats unfortunately were forced to do on Wednesday in spectacular nightmare fuel fashion, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish also debuted the team’s Zubaz-inspired new basketball uniforms designed by adidas during a appearance in the Big East Tournament. And again, much like the Bearcats, the Fighting Irish’s new duds were awful, just awful. I mean really ugly, man.
But it is unlikely that anyone will come up with a better, more accurate and funnier description of Notre Dame’s garishly atrocious warmups the players were wearing than ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas, who said, “It looked like someone had a Shamrock Shake and threw up on them.” Winner winner chicken dinner.
Witness the savagery. It follows, along with a gallery of the off-putting outfits.
Bravo., Jay Bilas. Truly a praiseworthy zinger right there.

Bilas, Bill Raferty and Sean McDonough were also critical of the white uniforms that ND wore for their first-round game.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish took the basketball court at Madison Square Garden on Thursday for a Big East Tournament quarterfinals showdown against the Marquette Golden Eagles. And while the Irish were able to rally and beat the Golden Eagles to reach the semifinals, the talk surrounding the game revolved around the retina-scarring, rods-and-cones-damaging, garish green jerseys...
Cincinnati takes on Big East No. 1 seed Georgetown today, and the Bearcats will be wearing their new Adidas uniforms…again. While at least one squad (Notre Dame’s women’s team) decided enough was enough with the zubaz shorts and crazy-bright colors, Cincinnati must not have minded the new digs. Personally, I think they’re pretty ugly – like zebra-mating-with-a-flamingo...
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish sported neon green, Zubaz unis against Marquette, and the world of Twitter was unimpressed.
While we’d already seen the release from Adidas on Notre Dame’s postseason uniforms, we finally got a look at the new digs on the actual players themselves tonight. Adidas has been catching a lot of heat for the zubaz shorts and ridiculous color schemes, though some people seem to like it. Notre Dame debuted its jerseys tonight, complete with bright green sneakers – Jerian...
Notre Dame and Connecticut provided a thrilling final act for the Big East.
The conference name will live on with the basketball schools that are separating from the football schools next year. But the Big East that has been arguably the best women's basketball conference in the country over the past decade will be no more.
And, no other conference could compare.
The Cincinnati Bearcats took on Providence in the Big East Tournament, and they did so in some crazy-looking adidas Zubaz pants.

More of the same was seen from Connaughton on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. Marquette was unable to kindle the fire from their hot start to the game and fell victim to a 73-65 loss.
Are you from Cincinnati and in New York for the Big East tournament? Are you a Notre Dame fan from nowhere Indiana and you’ve made the trek to Manhattan for basketball action?
