    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Interesting article from The Athletic on the Ducks’ new uniform set: https://theathletic.com/534059/2018/09/19/oregon-uniform-combinations-cutting-back-2018-season/ Some good insight there into the design process and inspiration behind the streamlined and simple look. The article also claims that Oregon will indeed only be going with the monochrome combos this season, and that they’ll be going all-yellow again this Saturday against Stanford. There’s been speculation and rumors about that since the new uniforms were unveiled, so this just adds to that. Personally, I’ll believe that when I see it. It very well could be true, but they’re known for pulling out some surprises, so it wouldn’t shock me at all if they ended up doing some mixing and matching for a few games (and we already know they’ll at least have one more uniform this season, if not two).

    Another teaser, this time from Dame Lillard:

    It doesn’t necessarily hint to a new jersey, especially since it is just their regular black jersey inside the ice block. It could be anything really. Speculation from people on Twitter has ranged from an announcement about NHL coming to Portland (this seems like the least practical thing that this could be, and frankly it’d almost be too obvious with the whole ice block thing), to news about a jersey retirement, to an announcement of a jersey advertiser, etc. it could even be some sort of ticket promotion or something like that. They followed the original tweet up with this a little while ago:

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    Sport broke the news on this earlier today: https://www.sport.es/es/noticias/barca/revolucion-proxima-camiseta-del-barca-7041112 These two media outlets have been pretty reliable in the past in regards to Barça kit news, so there’s a pretty good chance it’s legit (the final product would likely have some subtle differences, though). The club often sets out checkered flags in the seats inside Camp Nou, so if this turns out to be true then that’ll likely be the Nike speak for why they went that route:

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Here’s some better shots of the Ducks’ black and neon set in action yesterday: I thought they looked pretty sharp for the most part, though I think they would’ve popped a bit more during a night game under the lights. The helmets were far and away my favorite part, as I thought the glossy black wings looked really nice against the matte black shell. The rest of the uniform looked pretty solid as well though, and I especially liked how the inline in the numbers was a bit more prominent than on the green and yellow jerseys. Overall though, after seeing all three of the colored uniform sets in the first three games, I’d have to put both the green and yellow versions ahead of these black ones. The green ones looked the best overall, with the yellows not far behind, and the blacks just a little bit further behind. We’ll likely get our second look at the yellow set (possibly with a different helmet) this next weekend in the ABC primetime game against Stanford. Also, if this tweet (which has since been deleted) is to be believed, then the Ducks will have a Jordan Brand alternate uniform to be revealed at some point, and a second black uniform to be worn for the UCLA game on Nov. 3rd: I’ve seen and/or heard these rumors a few different places and from a few different sources, so this doesn’t come as a huge surprise. I’m assuming these are two seperate alternates, but it wouldn’t shock me if the two were actually one and the same. I guess time will tell, though. It’s definitely something to look out for as the season progresses.

    First on-field looks at the Ducks’ black and neon set. My first impression is that they look pretty nice, especially the helmets. I love how the shiny black wings contrast with the matte black shell.

    Just as they did in Week 1, the Beavs will be going all-white on Saturday:

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Ducks confirmed to be going all-black on Saturday: Aside from the 2017 spring game, this’ll be their first time wearing all-black since 2015 vs. USC (they did wear black/anthracite/anthracite in 2016 vs. Stanford, but that’s not quite the same as all-black).

    After going traditional grey/crimson/grey last weekend, Washington State will be going anthracite/crimson/anthracite this time around: Here’s how this combo looked last season:

    Some Oregon players are starting to post some shots of the new black helmets on their Instagram stories: As I previously said, they’ll be breaking them in during tomorrow and Friday’s walkthrough practices. And the combo for Saturday, which will almost certainly be all-black, should be officially revealed tomorrow morning.

  14. It’s not unlucky, it’s just ugly. Jerry Rice always said if you look good, you play good. Apparently it goes both ways.
