Oregon's "Trendy" Rose Bowl Uniforms
— Dave in Texas

I'm told "this is the future".

I don't think I like it, but the future rarely asks for my little ol opinion.

I prefer old-school throwbacks - not a futuristic look. It's like Robocop football.

10 Are those wings functional? Are we talking a Flying Offense?

Posted by: CoolCzech at December 30, 2011 06:22 AM (niZvt)

11 They're using Winged Hussars?

Assuming, in the name of sanity, that the wings aren't actually part of the uniform, this is just another team switching to black. Eventually every team in every sport will wear black.

And then some team somewhere will switch to white with pinstripes and look totally AWESOME.

Okay, I'll be the one to go against CW here.  I love them.  Love them!  Not necessarily these in particular, but the fact that they're trying new things and moving the state of the art of football uniform decoration forward.

The unies most teams wear are precious little different than the same crap we've been sseeing for 40 years. 

Have you seen TCU's uniforms?  Or the new Georgia Bulldogs?  Some of these teams are really mixing shit up.  Any why not?  Where does it say that you have to look like the 1977 Steelers in order to be cool?

I remember when the Baltimore Ravens debuted.  Everyone said their purple uniforms looked awful.  But you never hear that anymore.  People like the purple and black.  And the funnly little birdie on their hats.

Your resistance to the new look, it may continue and it may pass.  But you can't fault them for trying something new.

71 Oregon used to have some of the prettiest uniforms in all of college football (I love bright colors, yes)...the old bright yellow/dark green ones. This looks like something some thug rapper would come up with for his posse to wear. And considering the source of the uniform and the school they're for, that might be just how they came up with them.

As ugly as I think these uniforms are, the bottom line is that these are being used for recruiting purposes.  We may not like them, but the Milennials love them (the ones used at Arizona State this year were designed largely based on input from the students).  And with Div I football serving as a farm system for the NFL, with education completely irrelevant, schools are having to find other, more superficial ways to appeal to recruits.  A lot of these kids are now picking schools based primarily on the uniform design, and they like having choices beyond the basic home/away configuration.

It's sort of like when an Air Force unit activates--the unit typically picks the designation based largely on the respective emblems of the choices offered, not because of the designation's heritage or relevance to the mission.

Sometimes the differences can be pulled off--for example, Florida's old-school uniforms or Colorado's black-helmeted style they used this year.  Others, like the Maryland atrocities, are clearly garbage before they even see the field.

Looked at the photographs of the new uniform and agree that the uniform generally seems to be a bad idea.  My criticism of the uniform is that the drab gray makes the uniform more useful as camouflage than for sports.  I think the players are going to find it difficult to pick fellow team-mates out of the clutter.

I would think brighter, more contrasting colors would be appropriate for a game like football where opposing teams are mixed together in the scrum.

107 Why not just do like Boise St. and paint the field itself an obnoxious color, like blue?  Or Oregon could paint the field that eye-searing highlighter yellow color, so you could blind both the players and fans together.

I'd link if I could, but the most atrocious uniforms I saw this season were worn by the Maryland football team. Just stupid.

Teh famous One Eyed Jacks outfits?

How many people?

Solo? Chinese, some wine, and a good book.
Couples? An elegant meal for two made at home.
Group of people? Stay at home and play board games.

Never go out on NYE. Unless you're somewhere and can stay at a hotel. It's always filled with drama and it's always a madhouse to find a cab and get home.

All they lacked were big frickin' swords.

Heh.  There used to be a Jack Russel terrier in a yard down the street that I would walk by with my Swamp Collies (golden retrievers).  Went absolutely nuts every time we'd go by,  barking incessantly and snapping through the fence.  Of course, we had to nickname him "He Hate Me."

120 I like them, but it doesn't matter what I think. What matters is that high school football players love them. I just don't think recruits give a damn what your program did sixty years ago anymore. Plus it's not like Oregon is crawling with football talent, there all California Texas kids anyway.

I saw this already.

They're not going to play with that are they?

They can't possibly play in uniforms like that. Someone will poke an eye out! How the hell do you tackle that? It will get in the way of plays, the ball will hit the recievers spikes and bounce off. WTF.

They don't even alow things like messages on eye liner or people renaming themselves 'ocho cincho', and now they're dressing up football players like extras from The Chronicles of Riddick.

What the hell kind of 180 is this?

OT: New NBC poll, Perry at 14%, statistical tie for 3rd.

---------------------------------

So he's like the healthiest horse at the glue factory?

Posted by: DngrMse at December 30, 2011 11:45 AM (fo4Wz)

Well, with Nor Luap at second with 21% and with Romney surging all the way up to 23% in first, it's not a bad place to be.
And I just learned something: Iowa's delegates are not pledged until June 6, so that means the upcoming vote is really another straw poll.
But, 28 delegates by proportion, I guess under that poll would mean something like: 6.44 for Romney; 5.8 for the crank; 4.2 for Santorum; 3.92 for Perry; 3.64 for Newt; 1.68 for Bachmann.
Perry is one point away from the 15% threshold--If he beats out the other Rick and gets either those votes or Newts, he wins, beating Romney easily. That's the same for all of the 3rd place people.
Bottom Line: The Not-Romney vote is alive and well and has the best chance of "winning" Iowa.

128 The only thing of importance about a college football uniform is whether or not it says LSU.

Posted by: sandbagger at December 30, 2011 08:38 AM (QH2Iq)

129 As a Beaver fan, I can only hope that these uniforms were mistakenly constructed from some type of super-explosive polymer. Also, it will always be hilarious that (head coach) Chip Kelly looks exactly like Chaz Bono.

130 I like the new uniforms, and I love what Nike did with the Navy football uniforms.  They used similar technology and incorporated lots of Navy symbolism in the uniform, even in the parts that don't show on field - the undershirt-thingy has a fishscale pattern and a Navy Jack, which is a tribute to 9/11.

http://tinyurl.com/89ffsa3

I don't understand the hatin' on new technology in sports gear.  None of you morons want the ladies' Olympic swim team in wool swimsuits, do you?  That would be retro, but it would also put our swimmers at a disadvantage.  And be hideous.

Neomom ... did you go to Madison?  I still remember my days there in the mid to late 80s.  The street vendors used to sell Lucky Bucky condoms.  Then Donna Shalala decided to sue the makers for copyright infringement.  I guess it implied too much het sex for her.

I'm now in Northern California.  D'uh by my name.  And I agree "Go Badgers",   My dad actually got us all Badger shirts for Christmas this year.  Red home jersey for me, Pink for my 13yo daughter, White for my 11yo son (I drink red wine, he doesn't ... I hope) and my British-born wife got a black Bucky long-sleeve T-shirt, which she actually loves.  Blew me away.
