Really starting to hate Paul Lukas. He needs to report and give his opinions AFTER. All he does when a major team releases new designs is say "I wouldn't ever cover them!"

If you don't like the way he does things, start your own blog. It's his blog so it's his prerogative to do things how he wants, even if that means coming across as arrogant (you say arrogant, I say right) to some people.

it's called WINNING.

A team has to be able to win on the big stage to claim that.

Boise 2008 - Choke

Boise 2009 - Choke

Ohio State 2010 - Choke (Won their conference and the Sugar Bowl, not really choking)

Auburn 2011 - Choke (Won a game they should have won by 20, but not a choke)

LSU 2011 - Choke (WHAt!?!?!?!?!?!?)

Um, I was talking about Oregon's performance in those games.

Dude, just stop. We know you hate Oregon. Get over yourself already. You keep bashing on them whenever you get the chance. You consistently bash on anyone who has a different opinion than you and you're relentless in shoving your opinion down everyone's throat. Can you not understand how to discuss uniforms and let fellow members share their opinions? Take your foot off the pedal my friend.

EDIT: And why did you make that snide remark to DeFrank? Just because he doesn't like Paul Lukas and you do?

I agree 100% with you. I used to like reading his Blog, but now it is the same thing over and over...he hates this, he is not covering this. Just plain annoying.

Since when do my posts prevent other people from sharing their opinions?

I think you're making so unbearable for other posters to post in these kind of topics because they know Kevin is going to come down on them like the God of Thunder, and if by God, they like something to do with Oregon, you're gonna try to smite them lol. I'm not mad, angry, or even annoyed with you, just it might be a nice gesture if you don't slam anybody and everybody for liking Oregon's uniforms.

No, I said it because people bash Lukas non-stop while concurrently whining about how I supposedly "don't respect peoples' opinions." He has as much a right to his opinion as any of us do. It's his blog. He can run it how he wants to. How is he less entitled to his opinion than you guys are? You act like he should suddenly stop writing the blog how he wants and he should start fawning over Nike and Under Armour and start acting like everything they put out is the best thing ever.

Kevin's right in this case though. The statement that Oregon's tradition is "winning" is as arrogant and incorrect as their "traditions don't change champions do" banner. The program has a massive superiority complex, part of which comes from the hype of these ridiculous uniforms and what Nike says they represent, yet they haven't won anything to justify it.

The Ducks have lost every time they've worn Nike's volt colour. Which makes the whole Oregon brand/identity even more ridiculous then it already was.

I will have to agree with you on this, but I think that Oregon has not lost because of the Volt, they lost because they faced Auburn and LSU.

Dude, the only game there that could be considered a chokejob was the '08 Boise game, since they mounted a comeback but ended up losing anyway. The other games were simply them losing to the better team. That's not really a chokejob. Of course, because you irrationally hate Oregon, you'll just ignore this. I have my own reasons for hating Oregon but at least I can give them credit when it's deserved.

No, they were choke jobs. We were favored in all of those games and we lost. We're becoming the Oklahoma of the west.

I am another one of the (usual) old fogey traditionalists, but I gotta say, I love these. They are bold, different, and incorporate a RELEVANT part of the state/school into the uniforms. The helmets are insane, and I can't get over how cool they are. I will admit the continuation on the undershirts is a bit much, but damn I LOVE these.

Exactly. Much like you, Kevin, his opinions are couched in an "I'm always correct and any evidence that contradicts me must be a mistake or stupidity" tone.

I have to say, I actually like the new Maryland unis. They're just oozing with state pride.

Two things I have issue with, though:

1) Does everything really to have the UnderArmour logo plastered all over it? We get it. Kevin Plank is a UM alumnus. Enough already!

2) That new wordmark is bland and uninspiring - especially when used at midfield.

Agreed, about the midfield logo. I've always thought the Terps should try using the M logo at midfield that the basketball team uses.
