    I’m sure many share your opinion, but the code is the code. If the flag isn’t supposed to touch the ground or fly in bad weather, then personally, I don’t see how stuffing it up your butt crack (or wearing it on your shoes, which pretty much exclusively touch the ground) can be dismissed as “harmless fun.”

    It's a flag dude, it doesnt have feelings. If you wanna wear usa socks, no one should stop you.

    No uniform release from the Ducks yet, but the players are wearing the black helmets in their walkthrough practice today:

    Chances are this means that they’re switching things up and going either black/white/white or, less likely, black/white/black tomorrow night at Arizona. The nose bumper logos and ‘O’ decals look either white or silver in those shots, so I’m guessing they’ll just be in black/white/white with white cleats. 

    Just wear green guys, it's really not hard

    As a reminder, Oregon State will be wearing their gorgeous new fauxbacks with the Retro Benny helmets this Saturday against Cal:

    There is no reason you can't just replace old benny with the new logo and have that be their regular uniforms. Those are just about perfect.

    Ducks confirmed to be going all-yellow for the rivalry game against UW:

    Personally I’m happy to see them go all-yellow again rather than wearing the all-green set for the third time already. The original plan was to wear all-yellow vs. Stanford, but since they ended up switching it up and going all-green for that primetime game, it seems they just decided to move the all-yellow down to this game. The fans are being asked to wear green, so even though the uniforms don’t have any green on them, both school colors will still be well represented for the rivalry game.

    We really shouldn't wear anything other than all green at home if we're gonna only monochrome, it's the best look there. The all yellow looks like walking bananas.

    Colorado going black/grey/grey for the first time this weekend:

    Colorado is the only school that makes the GFGS work imo. It works so perfectly with their color scheme even as a gimmick. Everyone else can eat my ass though, even Oregon and Oregon State.

    Why can't those feathers just be yellow dammit? What's even the point of making a design element and then ensuring nobody will be able to see it in game, this is my biggest uniform trigger ever and Oregon has destroyed me with this for years. I don't understand how or why it's a thing, it's ok to have visual designs people can see nike.

    Another look at the new Oregon uniforms together:

    I'm just gonna say it, I like these. Assuming we have other unis that make mix and matching not impossible, I think Oregon succeeded in making a statement. Laugh at the hilariously large numbers and colored nameplates, I guarantee you other schools are gonna copy this. You talk about it like they failed in their branding, but the entire internet has gone on fire about these for better or for worse, and that's exactly what oregon wants. I'd say they did a great branding job, they look like nothing else out there and they are causing massive controversy. What isn't Oregon about that?


  8. Are we only going to have white jerseys with black numbers? Because if so, yikes on a candlestick, we're literally not going to have a single ok away look other than mono white. Other than that, awful numbers aside im actually ok with these. Helmets are great, love the simple colors, pants are good. Really, anything is better than the last two years, so whatever, I'll take these.

    I like em

    Probably my favorite uniform this offseason. They never should've left this design and I'm so glad they came back to it in updated format. Under armor is still making good unis, shame more schools aren't picking them up.


  10. I can't remember a single uniform offseason that has been worse than this. I can't off the top of my head think of a school who upgraded except virginia and arkansas. Seems like it's all just a giant reaction to the over-design and chrome bull previously, where now no one is adding any design at all and just using the fill tool once and spamming fire emojiis on the reveal twitter posts. I miss the Pro Combat era guys, I can't believe I'm saying this.


  11. Can the trend of not having any stripes or any kind of uniform details die now? I hate this more than I hated chrome or any other fancy bull :censored:. The font on the ISU uniforms is nice but dear lord what was wrong with the double stripes? It seems like a reaction to how much stuff they put into fancy uniforms, and now everyone wants to use the fill tool and call it a day. Really annoying, stripes are some of the best parts of football uniforms.

     

    On the other hand, Arkansas looks fantastic.

    Yeah, Lukas nailed it. This is all about making the Gophers PJ Fleck first, and Minnesota second. I don't care what heartfelt and tragic place "Row The Boat" comes from, it is clearly an exercise in further elevating one man above his players and his school, just like it was at Western Michigan. Fleck strikes me as a man who is uncomfortably off, and not in the usual college football coach way, either.

    Idunno man, not everyone can go 5-7 at Minnesota.
