I have done my pre-weekend review of the various Ivy websites and it is with great sadness that I report the discontinuation of the greatest League uniforms of any team in any sport.

Apparently Princeton has a new field hockey coach in the past year and she has ended the best reason to be an Ivy field hockey fan.

For many years, the Princeton team wore these short short orange skirts that had to be seen to be believed. Likely because field hockey is played on a water-saturated artificial turf, the Tigers wore tiny skirts made out of a diaphanous, almost sheer synthetic orange material. Any photograph of these fine athletes bent over to put their sticks to the ground was a thing of beauty.

The guy who designed the orange shorts for Hooters had nothing on the Nike designer for the Princeton field hockey team. I just googled, "Women's field hockey" and one of the autofill options is "Women's field hockey hot" featuring the Dutch team in their short orange skirts.

The sad end of a great era in Ivy League sports.

a lot of field hockey players I've seen would look better playing in overalls.

Don't be bitter foehi, about your complete lack of success with women your entire life. Somewhere, some day a woman will want to talk to you. It may happen at the county fair or the social security office but it will happen so don't give up.

As for women's field hockey uniforms, it should be about safety not traditional skirts which are not practical. They have made changes in women's lacrosse so field hockey should change as well if they haven't already.

AW, I share your desire to prioritize player safety when designing uniforms. However, I can assure you that, though the Princeton field hockey players were nominally wearing skirts, their uniforms did not inhibit the movement of their legs. At all.

You probably know this video:

Plus it comes with a cover ad some people may need.

Let's ignore accuracy for a second. It's good title IX is already in force; any version created following this thread would probably involve capital punishment.
