The college men's team has the bus nowhere on their jerseys for the 2015 season. I bitched, I complained, I was a real Casey Hooper about it, but nothing worked. Feast your eyes on the your 2015 Ludicrous "I have never seen Spaceballs" Speed jerseys.



sorry I can't make this bigger, but the white is the U of A crest with LS in the middle of it and the back of the black say Ludicrous-Number-Speed form top to bottom

Wish us luck for the rest of the season

Going full-on Casey Hooper is all anyone can ask for.

You are truly surrounded by assholes.

1. How soon can we get Ajax here to face smash Kaplan with the dark helmet?

2. Was this design previewed to any alumnus? Did we have a chance to order these?

3. I sure hope the person responsible for Jerseygate is not handling the roster.

Good to know. While you're here, could you comment on item (1)?

Kaplan is in charge of mailing me my new non-bus jerseys so if that doesn't happen in a timely manner then a face slap countdown will be on.

I think a design refresh is necessary every now and again, but as far as this design...

love the diamond, hate the shield.

When I heard they wanted to go away from the traditional bus logo and to more a crest, I wasn't too annoyed, but I think a scrumtralescent idea would have been to have a birds eye view of the bus inside the crest or even above the numbers on the black instead of the giant "LUDICROUS SPEED" that is on the back. A jersey with two fronts.

Basically it would be a box with wings, but I think it could have served as a subtle homage to LS roots while still being something new for the young kids to be pumped on.

My nicknames include "Vanilla Shake" and "No Thrills Mills"... apparently because I'm a boring person.

I figuratively yawned when I saw the black.

NWB, I wouldn't call the black jersey a "design refresh". It's a piece of crap, objectively, from a layout perspective.

If these kids wants to ignore their roots, so be it. Maybe they should totally rebrand (a la JBU Folding Beagles --> Ironfist, ca. 2010) instead of having a phrase on their jerseys from a movie they've never seen.
