Not easy being that green: USF's new shoes



greenshoes.jpgBefore we get to the news and notes and what USF said in today's news conference in Dayton, I can offer a sneak preview of what people might very well be talking about Wednesday night shortly after USF and Cal tip off in the First Four: the Bulls have new shoes.

And after seeing Louisville's roadside-cleanup orange uniforms and Baylor's Hi-liter yellow look during a very bold championship week, we've set the bar high for what represents a wild look from a basketball fashion standpoint.

Remember, players have the right to choose their shoes for Wednesday's game, so the Bulls might not be all sporting the new look.

The Twitter responses have not been kind to the shoes, referencing everything from the Wizard of Oz to pureed peas to even Flubber (#gomedfield!) ...  Thanks much to Victor Rudd for posing for this foot-note.
