Pro Combat Bracket: Another ACC match-up

Hopefully by now you have taken in the Maryland, Wyoming and Oregon brackets in the 2012 Uniform Madness Tournament and cast your vote for the worst of the worst. Now we finally unveil the Pro Combat Bracket.

Deserving of a two-seed? You decide.

Contrary to the namesake of the region, we have more than Pro Combat uniforms to discuss, but the highest seed in the region goes to one of 2010′s Pro Combat designs, with the Miami Hurricanes getting the high seed.

You may remember Miami’s Pro Combat uniforms from the 2010 season. The concept was innocent enough, in giving Miami an orange uniform with a green helmet, and initially the selection committee was fine with this. But after thinking about it some more, the green helmet was seen as a significant uniform violation, and the placement of the “U” logo on the knees, so you can see “The U” coming at you is a tad ridiculous. And palm trees embedded in to the finer details of the design? That is not a tough image we like to associate with the Hurricanes.

Their opponents in the first round are ACC rivals North Carolina, and their dark blue alternate uniforms.

Why abandon the Carolina blue so much?

North Carolina receives a low seed for their dark blue uniforms. While the selection committee does not like a program such as North Carolina, linked forever with Carolina blue, the selection committee does respect the fact that UNC did not choose to adopt an all-black uniform design like other traditional basketball powerhouses like Duke and Kentucky.

What’s worse, the dark blue alternate jerseys do not even work well with the existing color scheme that extends to the helmet. Perhaps if North Carolina paired the darker jersey with a white helmet, which the selection committee approves, then it could be pulled off. Any time the selection committee sees North Carolina in a dark blue uniform, images of the Toronto Argonauts fill the room. What if this jersey came with a dark blue helmet?

Of course, to the committee, North Carolina totally abandoning the Carolina blue would be deserving of a higher seed in this tournament.

So, which uniform was the worst? Cast your vote below and send one of these get-ups to the second round. Voting will continue through Saturday night, with polls closing at 11 p.m. EST.
