Yay NCAA!! (A Look at uniform stupidity)

A few seasons ago, Purdue wore uniforms that were ruled to be in violation of the NCAA's uniform rule that states numbers on a basketball uniform must be a contrast color to the base of the uniform:
Illegal!!
Fair enough...gotta play by the rules, right?

BUT, if you watched Duke or Florida play on Saturday, you might have said to yourself, "Self, those numbers don't seem to be a contrast color to the rest of the uniform."

You are correct.
Legal!
BUT, you need to understand, these Hyper Elite Platinum uniforms were not merely some Nike uniform for boring ole Purdue...instead, these beauties were a showcase of new uniform technology for some of the most-exciting and elite teams in all of the land (and Arizona).

Nothing to see here, I guess...as you were.
