These uni's are not up to par.

1) Black is not one of our school colors. So it shouldn't be outlining our letters and numbers.
2) CORNELL should be printed larger.
3) CU on the shorts? Really? Every single athletic team is represented by a C except the baseball team. They should have a) left it blank or b) put a C.

Our team deserved better.

Uniforms are perfect. Tarwater is beast. All-ivy as senior with cont progress.

I was wondering from those earlier practice photos who was in the #1 jersey. Cancer was #2 on the roster. Not important; just confusing when the roster and jersey numbers don't match.

Disagree. The unis looked great on the boys. Black is a neutral color and perfect for outlining--it's not like they're wearing black unis with red letters or anything.

They looked new, smart, and professional. You could nitpick any uniform, but these look much more modern and current than the prior iterations.

Yea, objectively, these are better than previous jerseys. But they could have done better. I guess it just depends on your expectation levels.

IMHO, the uni update was like the website update -- better, but just not that great. But neither is as important or tragic than our apparent lack of frontcourt remedies.

Just because "CU" is in our fight song doesn't mean it should be on our shorts.

I wish the uniforms didn't look so generic. Someone literally made them here: http://classic.niketeam.com

where are the reports about the game

The uniforms retain some of the classic Cornell look with a little modern update. Not ugly. Not spectacular. At least they didn't follow the Maryland & Oregon style guide.

Cornell Baseball uses CU on their caps. Can't think of any other team who does. Don't mind the CU on the shorts but would have left it off all together.

I'll agree that I'm more concerned with how the team looks playing the game.

I saw the first half. The most alarming aspect of the event were the 5 injured players, most notably Peck and Groebe. Not sure when they'll be ready to play. The team is small without a dominating front court presence. Tarwater, however, played very well. The guards can shoot, and Ferry hit 3 threes in a row within about a minute and a half.

I have no clue how the season will go, but the big guys have to step up.

I never like uniform changes, but in particular I am sorry to see the Nike logo. Nike has a very poor record of labor practices overseas, and I am sorry to see colleges getting into the commercial world of advertising and the granting of naming rights.

Here's a fairly generic report:

White team shot well, and had more layups overall. Got early lead and kept it. Ferry had 3 threes early and had around 15 pts on 5 threes. Wroblewski and Tarwater each had double figure points. Tomic had 6 or 8 pts on layups. Cancer had 4 pts on 2 layups I recall and a few assists. Don't think Jamal Cherry scored. Figini probably had around 8 pts.

For Red team, Miles probably had 10 pts and a few assists. Gray probably had around 8 or 10 pts. Matthews had 8 or 10 pts, a couple steals and a couple assists I recall. Don't remember much from Eitan but there was little effort to go inside on offense. Sahota had a quiet game, maybe 2 or 4 pts. Don't remember Devin Cherry scoring - he might have had a fast break layup but made no perimeter shots and had several TOs. Scelfo had two threes and a couple TOs. Giddens had one FG I can remember and a couple blocks.

I may have under or over estimated points slightly for a few of the players. Stats are just based on what I recall. Can't remember anyone being a beast on the boards.

For whatever reason the game consisted of two 15 minute halves and that was it. Clock actually ran continuously for awhile early in the first half so it was a pretty short game. Players seemed tired overall. No one made a huge impression. Can't say the abbreviated game left any lasting impression overall. Looked like an early season inter squad scrimmage.

I'm dumber for having read these comments... Are you all enrolled in the fashion school at Cornell? Lets win some games. If they are in potato sacks, I couldn't care less.

I preferred the classic design of the old uniforms. Also, I loathe the encroachment of black into uniforms for teams without black as a historical/official color (granted, Harvard is the most egregious violator of this in the Ivy).

My preference would have been something clean and classy, like Stanford with carnelian instead of cardinal red.

I think that Brandon Sparks put it very well on Twitter. Cornell's old uniforms looked a little dated but were classic. The new uniforms look just like those worn by every other Nike team in America.

I agree with those who say that "CU" looks dumb.

I know it was mentioned that this was alumni weekend for cornell basketball. anyone know who was back for that?

Uniforms (and sneakers) are discussed all the times in sports so the people who act all huffy and outraged about it are tiring. Everybody knows that it's not as important as gameplay, doesn't mean people can't discuss it.

We just got the same Uni's as Princeton, but with our colors :/
