The Fast Get Faster
The release ends all the hype and speculation surrounding the new uniforms and gives Duck fans around the nation yet another opportunity to invest in their favorite college football team.
The New Style
Though these uniforms don’t depart too much from the winged jerseys Oregon has sported the past four season, these new uniforms incorporate more of their Rose Bowl look, a look that was widely acknowledged throughout college football as being innovative and downright awesome.
Here is the banner located on the Win the Day facebook account of the new yellow Oregon jerseys:
As of right now there are only previews of the yellow, green, and white uniforms that will be worn by the Ducks, with the green and white ones giving just a little peek into what they will actually look like on gameday.
Though it is just speculation and rumor right now, Oregon should also be showing off a black uniform with silver wings as well as several new helmets. While the helmets will not be as shiny as the liquid metal ones they wore in the Rose Bowl against Wisconsin, most of the helmets should have the same exact design and style that was sported in the game.
And yet, despite all of the flash surrounding the style of the uniform, there is also a lot of change to the material of the uniform.
The New System
Oregon’s new uniforms by Nike are being heralded as the pinnacle of athletic performance material. You can click here for a summary of the many new features being raved about part of the new uniform set.
A brief read of the highlights of the uniform package indicate that these uniforms are designed to be lighter than ever before while also giving Oregon better performance in them as well.
Although the Ducks will have to wait for fan reaction, all indications are pointing to the thought that these uniforms are pretty sweet.
The feathers are a little bit more “manly”, if you will, than their past uniforms and the colors are a little more cohesive than their prior units as well.
