    Whats up with the ugly ass diamond plate for Oregon and didnt they just get new unis? All of these jerseys are seriously ugly. I guess if you wanna use piping, thats one thing, but to steer into the direction of Arena Football jerseys - its another. I honestly dont find these types of uniforms to be suitable for college ball. College football is supposed to be about history and tradition, what symbolizes tradition on these ugly ass things?

    To be fair, Oregon has a tradition of ugly ass uniforms, so I think they're just doing their thing.

    Has anyone else noticed that in the more recent Under Armor commercial, where 'Under Armor' is playing 'Goliath', that Team Under Armor's uniforms are shown to represent Kevin Plank's alma mater Maryland (who UA sponsors), while Team Goliath's uniforms are shown to represent Phil Knight's alma mater Oregon (who Nike sponsors)? Even the yellow-on-green block 'G' on the Goliath helmet looks like the Oregon block 'O'.
    DaytonBuck and Hodge like this.

    I believe these symbolize the history and tradition of utilizing every possible method to make money off of stupid college football fans who will buy a new or re-designed product simply b/c it's new and "improved" (or in this case awful).

    cryami doesnt have much tradition to speak of. the only schools that allow nike to get away with this bs are the schools that have little tradition to speak of. except scUM let them put piping on the away jersey. can you imagine a drastic change for any of the top ten in total wins? all hell would break loose if they even put names on PSU's.

    I didnt think of the commercial like that... but that makes the mnost sense. I knew they were oregon and the onnection I made was (I think) nikes first running shoe was made for an Oregon runner… I knew they were targeting nike though

    Great observation Dryden. The Maryland connection was clear to me, and the Oregon connection should have been. That cannot be a coincidence.

    I'm trying to remember that commercial - is that the one that doesn't make any sense?

    They say it's 4th down with 80 to go - last play of the game, and the guy tries to run for 80 - gets 20 and is tackled.

    Maybe I didn't hear it right - but if I did, it may be the most ridiculous fb commercial I've ever seen (that wasn't trying to be ridiculous)

    Once Joe Pa leaves there uni's will change. Nike has been after them to update the jerseys and joe pa is the only reason why it hasnt happened. You can say what you want of tradition, but after Joe Pa is gone so are the jersey's within 3 years of him leaving

    None of their commercials make any sense

    These would look stupid with normal looking numbers, but with those 'super cool modern' numbers, they're by far the ugliest thing I've seen today.

    doubt it, but we will see. let me rephrase then, imagine nike decides they want diamond plating on a buckeye jersey. imagine any drastic change to the osu jersey. even if tressel o.k.'d it, i think the fan base would have something to say.
