One-word responses to the Bearcats' tournament uniforms

Adidas unveiled their NCAA tournament uniforms a few weeks ago, which were mistaken as a sick joke before reality set in: They were actually going to play in these things.

  • "Scribbles."
  • "Nerf."
  • "'Nineties."
  • "What?"
  • "Kindergarten."
  • "Blurry."

  • "Squiggling."
  • "Cowabunga."
  • "Loud."
  • "Fierce."
