A University of Houston uniform prank is making news across the country. On Oct. 29, Fox Sports reported that Houston coach Tony Levine has played pranks on the media (and his players) for the past two years and both pranks have been well received and very funny. His third prank, however, didn't come on April Fool's Day like his previous two. In fact, it was sort of out of the blue. Levine was talking to his team and the press in the Carl Lewis Auditorium on Sunday and he showed them their "new uniforms."
"Levine debuted a new uniform for his team, which looked reminiscent of a practice jersey for an underfunded high school program," Fox Sports reports.
The University of Houston uniform prank was kicked off by a countdown and virtually everyone in the room participated. When they said, "1," Levine took the red sheet off of, everyone in the room went crazy! There were screams, cheers, and, of course, lots of laughter (and maybe some were confused thinking coach was serious).
"So again, this is what we will wear Thursday night," Levine said after thanking a few people for making the "new uniforms" come to life. It didn't take long for people to catch on to the prank and for coach Levine to show off the real new uniforms. Everyone seemed really thrilled.
