Maryland's new uniforms honor the state flag

Maryland unveiled some new uniform options today.

While it's safe to say that they probably won't generate as much buzz as last years new addition, the helmets and striping on the uniforms are certainly unique and honor the state flag.

Baylor's new alternate uniforms

While there is no word from Baylor whether these uniforms have officially been added to the lineup, a recruit tweeted out the picture below over the weekend.

The fact that they're showing it to recruits has to count for something. As you can see, there are a few minor changes, including the darker helmet, from their 2011 version.

Kevin Wilson notes interesting stat

As Kevin Wilson spoke during the Hoosier's media day presser late last week, he noted that in order for the program to take significant strides forward this year, they need to have improved play from the quarterback position.

Then Wilson noted an interesting stat on completion percentage.

"Last year as a program, I think we were at 57%." Wilson said. "When I was a player I think our goal was 58%. We thought that was a great passing performance. Well last year if you were 60% you were 60th in the nation, and there's 120 teams."

"In this day and age of high percentage passing and protections the way that coaches have evolved the passing game, all those guys (quarterbacks) have to play better."

While it's no secret that completing a large percentage of your passes normally equals wins, we decided to take a look at some stats over the weekend.

When you take a look at teams that comprised the top ten in completion percentage in 2011 (Boise State, Baylor, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Houston, USC, Arizona, Toledo), those teams went a combined 98-31 last season, and only Northwestern (6-7) and Arizona (4-8) finished with below .500 records. 

At this point, the Hoosiers have nearly a week of practices under their belts and are starting to jell, as this camp highlight video shows.

Addazio: "We have to find our edge"

After practice over the weekend, Steve Addazio was asked to share some of his thoughts on entering a new chapter in the Big East. What he said should strike a chord for many coaches around the country entering their own respective camps.

"This new chapter means that we have to find our edge. What's going to give us that edge? As we roll into this new conference right now, what's our edge? How can we make ourselves different. We talk a lot about that."

"One of the things that we can do is all the things that don't take talent, we can do them really well. Tremendous physical conditioning, mental toughness, great assignment knowledge, attention to detail. Those things don't require you to be faster, bigger, stronger, they just require a little bit more mental toughness." Addazio explained.
