Baylor's latest unconventional March Madness fashion statement has been nixed by the NCAA.

Last week, Baylor and adidas introduced uniforms with "Sic 'Em Bears" -- the school's rally cry -- on the jerseys to be worn during the team's Big 12 tournament and possible NCAA tournament bid. But on Wednesday, the school announced that the NCAA had ruled the team would not be able to wear the uniforms. NCAA rules require only team names or mascots can appear on the front of jerseys.

From ESPN:

A Baylor spokesperson said the team will wear its regular-season uniforms during the postseason. The school has six designs to choose from: white, gold, green, black, neon yellow, and neon yellow with sleeves. The uniforms will be chosen on a game-by-game basis, with white being worn for Wednesday's Big 12 conference tournament game against TCU.
