Recommended Posts

Im actually in Eugene for the holidays visiting friends...

All the Rose Bowl gear here is Nike and has the green helmets with the yellow "O".

Ive seen a couple of questionable shirts here in eugene, but thats expected with the over-abundance of merch. theyre everywhere, including goodwill. i used to work at a screen printer here in town. the opportunity is there to make whatever you'd like, but each year the goons from nike and disney pay a visit to audit your shop. it could be that the bad shirts are from the ohio end and they dont really give a flip. that would explain why i saw the shirt in question and fred meyer, who is a subsidiary of ohio-based chain, kroger.

I'd love to see Oregon wear the Joey Harrington era uniforms as poke at the NCAA for keeping the Ducks out of the championship game played at the Rose Bowl where Nebraska got in after losing their conference championship.

Nebraska didn't even play in their conference championship game that year. Colorado waxed them, then proceeded to take Texas to the woodshed in the Big 12 Championship game. A few years later, Oklahoma, however, did lose the Big 12 Championship game as the #1 ranked team in the country and emerged still the #1 ranked team in the BCS standings and thus played in the National Championship game, losing to LSU.

Should look pretty spiffy

I agree. Although Ive enjoyed the throwbacks they have worn this season Im glad they are sticking to their current sets. Im looking forward to these!

I'm glad they chose one of the best options from their current set. Of course, this means there will be pretty much no yellow aside from trim.

I too would have preferred the throwbacks from a purely aesthetic standpoint but in the Rose Bowl, the pinnacle of your season's achievement, you should wear uniforms that represent your team, not teams from 15 years ago.

Oregon as the home team in dark jerseys leaves Ohio State with the option of wearing their "throwback" uniforms. Let's hope they choose not to.

Just saw a clip on ESPN and it had some shots of the Oregon Rose Bowl photo shoot in the background and Oregon WAS in white pants. So it is White helmet, Green jersey and White pants as the article stated. Think it will look really good. Cant wait for the game. GO DUCKS!!!!!

No way The Buckeyes wear those things again. At least I sure hope not. Let's go with the basic road uniform and look good for our annual BCS loss.

Also, I am a huge fan of throwbacks and retro uniforms but I gotta be honest, Oregon's throwbacks are a bit boring to me. I actually like some of the nutty stuff they wear now. On occasion, they hit on a combo that really looks good. It's rare but it does happen.

Actaully, I don't care what either team wears as long as the final score shows Ohio State with at least one more point than Oregon. I doubt that it will but a person can hope right?

All the advertisement for the game has Oregon in green helmets, yet they wear white lids instead? They don't look bad, but the green helmet would look so much better.

I wonder if the lighting or something is weird. OSU's grey pants look almost white at times. And their silver helmets look a bit brighter than normal too.

Still think they made a mistake in changing the pants to flat grey. Yes, I know their colors are scarlet and grey, but if that's the case then they should also lose the metallic shell.

Lame jersey choice for the Ducks. And if you ever thought Nike would want a game to showcase a new design, this game would be it.

It would look a lot better if Oregon had white numbers instead of those useless gray ones.

They could wear flat grey helmets like Missouri wore with their Pro Combat uniforms. It'd probably have to be a lighter shade of grey to match their current pants. I wish they would use the darker grey they used with their faux throwbacks.
