  1. I've been on a few design award juries over the years, and I think this is a good example of how the award-givers' criteria is different from the general public's. An award like this is really only considering new uniform designs, so any classic ones don't really count, or aren't considered. I'm not a big fan of this uniform, because as an old-school fan I don't like any faux patterning on jerseys. But I can see why it won an award. There are SO many new uniform designs that are just poorly executed. This one has real clarity from a design point of view. It distinctly takes inspiration fr
  2. I remember when Oregon played Ohio State for the national championship in 2015 (end of 2014 season), as the higher-ranked team the Ducks had the choice of uniforms. They chose an all-white away uniform that looked great, but as a Wall Street Journal article pointed out at the time, the team had very different records in different colors and combinations. The all-green outfit they'd just worn in the Rose Bowl against Florida State was one that the Ducks had a dominant record in, while the white outfits had the worst record of any look. I'm not at all saying that Oregon would have won the n
  3. I'm not too fond of any of these gray combinations, especially if it's all-gray. Sometimes Oregon has worn gray football pants with white jerseys, like in the game-clinching win against OSU in 2010 to finish 12-0, and those aren't too bad. What really makes me cringe the most is loud patterning on the jerseys, but I agree that it's hard to get excited about gray.
  4. One thing I really love is the winged helmets — everything except the O on the back. I realize the whole thing (both the wings and the O placement) are meant to evoke a motor cycle like the Harley used as part of the pregame ceremony. But I just think that O on the back looks silly, and negatively impacts the otherwise-great look of the wings.
  5. I agree with you completely, Charles — well, until you went and chose a uniform with wings on the shoulders for your second favorite! For the most part, I am all about the pre-1994 uniforms: not just the yellow pants and helmets, but with a stripe on the pants and down the center of the helmet. As newer uniforms go, I actually like best the look Oregon has worn for the past couple years, especially last season. All that faux gimmickry was finally gone from the jerseys and pants: the fake diamond plating, the fake wings. It looked RIDICULOUS. Only because we were winning so many games did
