Would you wear these?

Syracuse wore a new kit for the quarter final last weekend, including a new colour called "Neon Volt"

Not every Syracuse player wore them

#14 Tom Palesek, #15 John Galloway & #40 John Lade didn't wear the shoes

Should they have gone further and wore Neon Volt shirts & shorts or combo there of?

Shockingly horrible by a team that I have always thought was one of the best dressed (no homo).

It must be Nike pushing some new fad....all I can say is I'm not a fan.

But I guess if you're contracted to wear Nike equipment, you wear what you're given.

I actually think they'd have looked better with neon/orange shorts/shirt. On a white kit, however, they look awful!

With that Oregon kit the neon yello accents look quite good IMHO

BUT the neon socks and cleats should be left for pick up games and fun tourneys!

I refuse to believe that by wearing any new kit, obnoxious as it might have been, was the reason that 'Cuse lost out to MD, or in Oregon's case either!

I think you have to realistic about it and just accept that they got out worked, out played and out thought!

In answer to the original question though, hell yeah I would wear that stuff if it was given to me for FREE!!! Not sure I'd pay for it though!

Does anyone else think the 'Cuse helmets look a bit like they've ripped off the design of a lucozade (original) bottle...?

Interesting twist on high vis uniforms

IN NCAA Football, The Boise State Broncos have had great success playing in their home Blue uniforms on their Smurfturf

perhaps there is something in it after all

..& the Oregon Ducks usually wear dark green, black numbers on their home turf. Sort of explains LaMichael James' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaMichael_James) 2010 rushing numbers, what with hiding his 5'9" frame behind the 6'6" offensive linemen and then blended into the scenery in the open field.

Is that why Leeds and Norbury are the two big forces of English lacrosse?

No to be the best on most UK pitches you would need to wear muddy brown!
