The Buccaneers' announce Malcolm Glazer's passing earlier today.

The Buccaneers have announced that the second owner in franchise history, Malcolm Glazer, passed away this morning at the age of 85.

After a period under Hugh Culverhouse's ownership that was marked with ill feeling between players and the owner, Glazer's purchase of the team saw a huge turnaround in the team's fortunes. Under his ownership, the Bucs went from the worst team in the sport by a considerable margin, to Super Bowl champions in just seven seasons.

Below is the Buccaneers' statement in full:

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are saddened to announce the passing of Owner/President Malcolm Glazer earlier this morning at the age of 85. A dynamic business leader, Glazer helped mold the Buccaneers into a model franchise and one respected league-wide. Since being purchased by Glazer in 1995, the Buccaneers franchise has earned seven playoff berths, five playoff wins, and captured its first Super Bowl championship in 2002. Known among his league peers as a pioneering thinker, Glazer infused his team and employees with the determination and dedication to be the best in the NFL. Glazer's commitment to building a championship organization has provided the foundation for continued success, on and off the field. Glazer's input was instrumental on the league level as well, as evidenced by his time serving on the NFL's Finance Committee. He also played a major role in Tampa becoming a host for the Super Bowl on several occasions. In 1999, Glazer launched the Glazer Family Foundation, which is dedicated to assisting charitable and educational causes in the Tampa Bay community, highlighted by the opening of the Glazer Children's Museum in 2010. In its 15 years of existence, the Foundation has donated millions in programs, tickets, grants and in-kind contributions. In 2005, Glazer purchased Manchester United. Since then, the club captured five Premier League titles (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013), as well as the 2008 Champions League title. Born in Rochester, New York as one of seven children, Glazer took over the family watch-parts business at age 15 following the death of his father and then continued his foray into the professional world, investing in other businesses. Glazer owned or was a substantial shareholder of a diverse portfolio of international holdings and public companies, including: First Allied, Zapata Corporation, Houlihan's Restaurant Chain, Harley Davidson, Formica, Tonka, Specialty Equipment and Omega Protein. A resident of Palm Beach, Florida, Glazer leaves behind his wife, Linda, six children and 14 grandchildren. Mr. Glazer's long established estate succession plan has assured the Buccaneers will remain with the Glazer family for generations to come. Linda Glazer, along with their five sons and daughter, will continue to own and operate the team as they have throughout the family's ownership. A private family funeral service will be held for Mr.Glazer. The opportunity for others to remember and celebrate Mr. Glazer's life will be announced at a future date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his memory to All Children's Hospital, St. Joseph's Children's Hospital, and Shriners Hospitals for Children - Tampa.

Now, fashion on the soccer field isn't as big a deal as it is on the red carpet, but critics say this jersey has the U.S. men's team looking more at home at a country club. 

But Deadspin dubs it a "bland, golf shirt-looking thing" and says "there's not much that stands out." 

And an editor for The New York Times agrees, tweeting, "The good news is that the new USMNT jersey will also work for the Ryder Cup team. #golfshirt" (Via Twitter / @AndrewDasNYT

And he later tweeted a link to a Ryder Cup merchandise shop, suggesting the new soccer jerseys could"slide easily onto this page."

But Bleacher Report calls it "a classy twist on a familiar design." 

The team's road jerseys will be revealed sometime next month. The 2014 World Cup begins June 12.
