(CBS SF) – The University of Oregon is getting attention for the intimidating look the football team plans to roll out for the NCAA Championship Game next week. But in order to accomplish the look, they’ve had to drop the Green and yellow color scheme that the team is famous for. Here is a look…
In the years since the Donald Duck logo flew off the uniform, Nike has tweaked the team’s look more than Dr. Frankenstein adjusted the neck bolt on his creature. While the new look is cool, some other incarnations have been less flattering. Here’s a review of some of the most odd color combinations:
Back in 1995, Oregon was still sporting the classic look, but Donald duck would leave the sleeve within a short time latter, ushering in the Nike experimental uniform era.
Things started going downhill when the Ducks started wearing shoulder pads that made them look like they had just been run over by a semi. Thankfully they eventually switched it up to the steel wings look.
But dropping the green and gold for black and white? The average prison uniform looks more intimidating.
So then they brought the yellow back. At least I think that Jersey is yellow. Or is that the green?
Ok, that’s yellow. They’ve got one of the colors back for sure, but where exactly is the green?
Gah, Nike. It’s not that hard. The team colors are Green and Yellow. Period.
Ok, that’s better, I guess. It seemed like Nike was cluing in to the proper color scheme at this point.
Guh, what is that? Why would you make another human wear that?
Ok, back to the classic look this year, I like it. Oh wait, then came the ‘Tron’ remake look…
Ok, we’ll settle for the grey and white for the Championship game. At least they’ll look better than the fans.
