Oregon State and Turquoise?

Before I even opened that link, the first thing I thought of was "Vancouver Grizzlies"...lo and behold, the link opens, and it's a similar look (well, colors anyway, even though the Grizz had red instead of orange.)

The look made me think this had something to do with a Native American cause (since a good bit of the Grizz' uniform detail and branding from those days had Native American influences), then I read the story and yep--that's exactly what it is.

As a one-time thing, I actually kind of like it.

As a result of Nike creating turquoise uniforms for Oregon State's basketball program, I am now aware of:

the need to bring access to sport for Native American and Aboriginal youth as a means to improve their lives and create positive change in their communities.

"creating awareness for the need to bring access to sport for Native American and Aboriginal youth as a means to improve their lives and create positive change in their communities"

When I see or hear "creating awareness...", I know it's going to be a dumb, no-effect idea...but this one reaches a whole new level of ridiculousness.

I don't like it when any team wears a color outside of their traditional colors (normally black is the most frequent offender), but this--in and of itself--looks good. Also, an orange/black/teal (or turquoise) color scheme would look pretty good, not to mention unique.
