Notre Dame took the Madison Square Garden floor on Thursday night against a tough Marquette team in the Big East Tourney. Previously, the Irish wore their white versions of the Zubaz uniforms designed by adidas, and ESPN’s Jay Bilas shredded the new look on-air.
On Thursday night, the Twitterverse did Mr. Bilas proud, ripping the team’s highlighter-green version of the Zubaz unis.
What do you think about these bad boys? Do you agree with the hilariously unimpressed folks who took to tweeting to voice their horror?
We’ve finally found the inspiration for the neon green Notre Dame uniforms: twitter.com/SportsNation/s…

I want Notre Dame to be eliminated from existence until they agree to never wear that nonsense again. Ever.
