Still an improvement over the Miami numbers and two logos on each helmet.

That's still part of the new set, unfortunately.

Single worst trend. Hate hate the non-matching logos.

The only good thing about that "Pack" logo that Nevada sometimes uses, is that it helps me remember if they're the one word or two word Wolf Pack team (NC State being the Wolfpack, all one word).

Good look at the sleeve patches on the Ducks' spring game uniforms:

Also, there's a new wall covering outside of the tunnel at Autzen, a new sign at the end of the tunnel, as well as new wall coverings inside the stadium:IMG_3774.thumb.JPG.2efda0c5218a220907a3b1a5302378e0.JPGIMG_3776.thumb.JPG.b6c8d6290d401e718cb405b40c6d3a32.JPGIMG_3775.thumb.JPG.73f4f31774b46c178abf78bde9c779a9.JPG

The new unis are really good for Nevada, IMO.  I really like that helmet, even with the dual logos (the Pack mark is really cool).  It's a good update for Nevada.  The traditional block font and maybe-bland wordmark is still better than borrowed templates and fonts..

Did USC wear their shiny helmets with the chrome facemasks last year? I think they should wear those more often even if they put a grey mask on it, a nice twist on a classic uniform.

Sometimes I forget what school colors Oregon is. They have worn:

white

black

green

yellow

gold

pink

blue

orange

 

They wore all gray when playing WSU 2 years ago. WSU's official colors are crimson and...GRAY. Last season they dressed up as the Cal Bears for Halloween and played UW. I bet next year they find a way to wear purple and justify it somehow.

Actually they won't since the equipment manager said they'd be going for more traditional Oregon colors while limiting the amount of one-off colors/uniforms to simplify their work and create a more unified look.

Shush, we don't want a bunch of angry dogs up in UDub nation somehow mimicking them.  But then again we are talking about the Ducks.   Besides, you have forgot to mention the color brown, which resembles the Cascade Mountains located in you guessed it the state of Oregon. :D

This upcoming season is Auburn's 125th year of football. Someone asked me if Auburn would wear a patch for the milestone like they did in 1992 for 100 years, so I wrote about it here

 

Also, learned a new word today - quasquicentennial, which is the 125 year anniversary. Enjoying using that now :D

In the context of football "Do Something" is pretty much the antithesis of success. Any good coaching philosophy focuses up knowing one's responsibilities, having situational awareness, execute with precision and maximum effort. Doing something is indicative of being lost on the field or freelancing which is not a long term factor for success on the field.

 

"Do something" reeks of desperation and lack of control. Poor branding IMO.

It's like they reeeeeally wanted to use "Do Your Job" but didn't want to get sued by the Patriots, so this was the next best thing.

As has been mentioned previously, the slogan is something that Coach Taggart used at USF, and he's carried it over to Oregon. The full slogan is "blame no one, make no excuses, do something", which is really just about accountability and, like you mentioned, doing your job. When Taggart got to Oregon, his main message to the players, fans, media, boosters, etc. was that he wanted to create a culture of excellence on the field, in the classroom, and in the community, and accountability plays a large part in all three of those areas. In addition, he made it clear that each player has to earn their role, and that plays into the slogan as well. I agree that the shortened "do something" isn't the best, but with the context of knowing the slogan in its entirety, it's a perfectly suitable mantra and a much needed change of pace from Helfrich's "you vs. yesterday", or even Kelly's "win the day".

Should've gone with "no excuses" then.
