Ok now I'm hardpressed to admit it but I'm starting to get used to these uniforms too. Here's the thing - take away the diamond plating and change back to the numbers from last year - and this set is freaking awesome. But then we have the diamond plating and the funky Belotti Bold font which sort of ruins it.

ya, they made that change coming into the season and it looks a lot better.

let me just break the Oregon unis down here. I think we can get to the root of the hatred, and gordie just touched on it...

-the colors

-the diamond plating

-belotti bold

the colors aren't changing anytime soon, and really, I don't think they should. our colors are yellow and green - deal. with such a bright shade of yellow it's always going to be arresting.

belotti bold I've grown to like. no, seriously, I have. some numbers look odd when wrinkled up, but that happens with any jersey. at least belotti bold is a very forward-thinking number font, which I like better than traditional block fonts. Enough teams use those, we don't need to.

the diamond plating is what I have had a problem with and, while it's not totally invisible to my eye and I still don't like it, it's less of a problem. it does still look weird, but the effect is diminished on the yellow and white uniforms.

now, remove the diamond plating even and there really isn't anything to complain about - nothing goofy from a design standpoint besides the colors and the font, and both are much more subjective than the diamonds. the pants are fine, the design of the jersey is actually quite good - the shoulders look better-designed than last year's jerseys - but it's all marred by the stupid diamond plating.

and the existence of a black jersey. uggh. we should not have black as one of our colors, at all, not even as a pant option. black is for oregon state, not oregon.
