OT- Oregon unveils BCS uniforms
Just as you say -- for Oregon, not too bad minus the socks.
I had a dog do that to my sock once.....
Think about it the next time you buy Nike.
WOW you're like ok not that ba......WHAT? How do people pick these things thinking it's a good idea?
Why does every Oregon uniform look like they were left with a Meth addict and box of highlighters?
I have a college degree and I have no idea what that means. Perhaps that's why I don't know what it means...
Man, I wonder if Anaheim ever does this during games. I went to a couple play-off games in the summer of '07 there (when the Wings dropped the west coast finals series), and I remember some corny stuff, but not this specifically.
Wow, I was slowly scrolling down the page thinking "These look downright normal for Oregon" until I got to the socks. I then rocked back in my chair and was blinded for a second.
Exactly the same thing here.
I like the unis though. Glad they stuck with those helmets - they're pretty cool imo.
I like the helmets, too, but I loved the flat black helmets they wore earlier in the season.
Yeah the socks could be used by construction workers.
Other than that, not much has changed IME, but they don't look horrid.
remind me of these:
Wow those would be so much better if they would just lose the Reebok logo on the left shoulder. FAIL!
Penn State has 'em:
Sucks to be you guys. Those things make the Everblades look almost dignified. Almost.
There has GOT to be a better way to support the fight against breast cancer.
At least, I hope that's what's going on there, because I can't think of any other explanations.
The Ducks must be fulfilling their community service obligations this year by volunteering as crossing guards. Yikes, those things are hideous.
EDIT: This was not a joke to say they have a bunch of criminals. Just realized it may come off this way. Simply a lame attempt at humor.
The socks are gaudy but I wanted something just totally ridiculous. These are far too normal for Oregon's first trip to the BCS Championship, considering their uniform pedigree. Oh well.
Newton throws at the defensive back's feet all day. His arm tends to be attracted to the color green.
Those are straight UGLY
do they repaint the helmet or do the players get a new one every time they switch uniforms?
My uneducated guess is that they repaint them, because don't you want to break in a helmet?
I'd have to think the same thing. Breaking in a new helmet at the start of every football season was bad enough during high school. I can't imagine doing it every week.
is that it rains athletic gear in Eugene, Oregon. I bet their players are given three new jerseys for every practice. They get new helmets the way other teams are given bottles of water. Grass stain? New uniform. Speck of blood on your glove? New uniform. Got eyeblack on your chinstrap? New uniform. And every single stinking piece of gear is flashing about seven swooshes.
They should just trade in the "O" and put a swoosh on the sides of that helmet-- I mean helmetS-- already. Heck, change the name to the University of Nike.
they're repainted after every quarter of play.
In my mouth a little bit when I saw those socks. Who were the ad-whizzers who came up with that one? Were they they same people behind the new B10 logo?
Does Oregon even have school colors any more, or are they just going for the "dawg, fukkin wikked" look from here on out?
I don't like the socks but overall I like Oregon's uniforms. They couldn't have a more fitting look based on their style of play.
If they absolutely have to be te "away team", I prefer the all whites they wore when they dain bramaged USC:
Auburn's home jersey arrangement always been hopeless.
Those are actually half-decent. I thought the new Oregon uniforms were fine until I scrolled down the page and saw the socks - but there's a certain merit in having really distracting components of a uniform.
Perhaps the strategy is the same idea behind why the Yankees win: those damn pinstripes.
I would be okay with those if they didn't have the feathers (which make me think more of a tribe than a duck).
I love it. Not for Michigan, mind you, but I think they're all awesome.
they kept the duck feathers on the shoulders because that is super cool.....
note the sarcasm.
I usually don't mind Oregon jerseys, but my God, the socks. The socks! (And the shoes for that matter)!
then I'd go for it.
It has to be fluorescent / neon orange though, preferably glow in the dark neon orange.
But that's what the kids like today, with their rap music, which gives them the brain damage. With their hippin' and their hoppin', and their bippin', and their boppin'... so they don't know what the jazz is all about! You see, jazz is like a Jello Pudding pop...
I was liking them until the socks. What are those? It's like hooking up with a fine ass chick only to see she has fungus and bunions all over her feet. With that being said, I still like these uniforms better than Auburn's minus the socks of course.
What else could you do with Green and Yellow. Might as well have fun with it.
so 113,000 could erupt in laughter as soon as they ran onto the field and point their fingers in disdainful delight at their stupendously silly costumes and make their willies shrink into intinitesticle nothingness and then (natch) lose the game.
Now I think Auburn should adopt the tactic. Even though I want the flying day-glo Oreganos to win because I
a) hate what Cam Newton says about the decline of a game I love
b) hate the SEC and
c) really can't stand Phil Knight or Oregon either, come to think of it. (Didn't they slaughter us here at the Big House to help hurry the decline of all things Michigan only cosmic millimoments ago?)
Okay, at least this post has clarified (for me) that I don't have a strong rooting interest in this game (thinking out loud). Carry on.
the uniforms are inspired by the mascot.....the sock is supposed to hint at the webbed foot
Say what you want, but Oregon's uniforms are a lot better than OSU's pro-combat shit
Should have gone straight fluorescent yellow, with green shoes and gloves. The more ridiculous the better.
With those socks, they might as well wear something with a little color splash on it. As weird as they have looked this year, they did have better choices. Given the stature of the game, they should have let the network pick the combination for this one. Pulling random pants, shirts, helmets, socks, and shoes out of a box hasn't been working too well for them.
....i like the socks.....
The uniforms and the team have personality up the wazoo. (spelling? don't know and don't care)
First, for all the people talking about how stupid the socks are, that's the point. This is marketing. The more people are talking about Oregon the better and in this case, even if it's bad talk, it's great. The marketing they do through things like this has helped them.
I don't mind the unis, not even the socks. Having said that, the all whites with white helmets were the best.
i don't care what they wear as long as they keep these "uniforms" around.
The broad on the right was at Mudbowl this year for a segment on FoxSports.com. I believe the segment is adequately titled, "Hot Girl on Campus"
