Oregon's new uniforms -- Wings!

Here we go again ...

More new football uniforms from Oregon. I believe this is the 39th time Oregon has updated or changed their uniforms in the past decade. It's getting a little out of control.

The press release states:

Nike designers have made advancements from Oregon's last update in 2006, which featured uniforms that were more durable and 28-percent lighter than the previous generation. The latest editions have improved ergonomics and ventilation characteristics, and feature laminate numbering that does not soak up any moisture and has an 85-percent weight differential compared to traditional tackle twill.

Laminate anti-abrasion shoulder reinforcement, in the form of wings, takes the place of "diamond plate" on the current jersey, a 200-percent savings in weight differential between materials.

Translation -- No more tire tracks on the shoulders. The jerseys now have wings. (Get it, Ducks have wings.)

But my favorite part is Oregon now has 80 different combinations (jersey/pants/helmet) at their disposal. That's insane.

With most of the Oregon uniform changes, I think they are awful. Here are the pics for 2009. What do you think? 

Personally, I liked these uniforms back in the day.

EVERYONE WHO IS NOT AN OREGON FAN IS ENVIOUS OF WHAT WE CAN DO WITH OUR JERSEYS.  LIKE BELOTTI ALWAYS SAID, HE DOESN'T CARE, AS LONG AS THE 18 YEAR OLD RECRUITS DO!!  THE JERSEYS ARE COOL AND PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS SAD WHEN THEY CAN'T HAVE WHAT OTHERS DO.  OREGON WILL ALTER THEIR JERSEYS EVERY YEAR.  I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD STOP COMPLAINING AND TRY TO STOP OUR OFFENSE MORE CONSISTENTLY.  THE CARBON FIBER IS AWESOME.

I'm an Oregon State fan, and I hate this yearly display of careless spending for shitty uniforms when they already had 50 or so combinations to start out with. Especially in an economic climate like this! I do find it sad that they manage to attract many a recruit with their Phil Knight-funded start of the art everything. Especially because my hometown Beavers have one tenth of their budject, a grand total of three unis and one helmet, inferior recruiting, and less talent. Yet they manage to equal or outperform the Ducks year after year. Wouldn't Mr. Knight realize after a while that if start-of-the-art EVERYTHING, 80 uni combinations, and throwing gobs of money at everything didn't give you a national championship, he should approach a new strategy? He's been outspending almost every major program since 2000 and has one Pac-10 championship to show for it. Seems like a waste.

On another note, I must admit the silver helmets look pretty cool.

Oregon; donate old uniforms to Penn State!

Joe Pa and the Lions need some help!  How about the Ducks donate the old used uniforms?

Either its the worst adaption of the letter 2 in history, or the player was wearing the jersey when the "designer" put the 5 on it.

I'll take the plain, traditional uni's from Penn State, Notre Dame, Alabama and Michigan over any of these.  These are rediculous.

You get 1 away and 1 home uniform. Whatever happened to those days ? Football isn't a fashion show and anyone who thinks that it is should gather up there boyfriends' things and find the next flight to Eugene, Oregon ... because those are the most fem looking uniforms on the planet. Green and eyescalding yellow were bad enough but now they have duck wings ? ROTFLMAO !! I am so glad that I ain't ya'll, nice stadium or not.

I think the uniforms would look great without the wings. That is the only thing I don't like. Oh and the silver and white?

These uniforms are ugly...but they are sure to be enough of a distraction to opposing teams for at least one quarter. Dang, Oregon, why do you want to be in the ugliest uniform club. I'd use that to recruit kids away from them!

They have got to be joking right? Those are without a doubt the ugliest uniforms in the country. They are hideous. If I were a Duck, i'd transfer, that's how bad they are. They look like they play (in the old) Division ll.

It will give them an edge though, the opponents will be laughing too hard to play them. I am glad my beloved Wildcats from Kentucky don't play them.
