Welcome to the University of Oregon, where a Nike designer’s feverish, drug-induced night terrors become the school’s football uniforms every two-to-four years. Only in Eugene will a press conference to trot out new football unis be big news. Well, here they are — I hope you’re wearing the sunglasses we’ve provided for this post.
My favorite part of the school’s press release is right here: “[The uniforms 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.”
So they’ve got that going for them.
