College Football 2012 Season

Recommended Posts

The standard double O helmet was the one constant that held together a fractious and ever changing identity. Without it, I think Oregon suffers from poor identity and bad. (yes, "bad" is a noun in that sentence.)

But I shouldn't even be having this argument/conversation with you because clearly you're an irrational person, what with your Chief Illiniwek avatar - a super racist mascot that infamously shucked and jived it's way into NCAA obliteration and yet silly white Illini fans cling to the last vestiges of the racism of their youth.

1. Wouldn't "bad" be a verb in that sentence?

2. Indians don't "shuck and jive." We drink a lot and live on reservations. Get your racist stereotypes straight.

If Chief Illiniwek is a racist symbol (not mascot), then why is the current Chief Illiniwek a Native American?

Ok, I started this so I'll stop it. Sorry everybody, shouldn't'a taken that shot at Illiniwek. back to NCAA unis.

1. No, I used it as a noun.

Why does the black alternate have an Oregon "shield" logo on the chest, while the others just feature the standard O logo?

Is black supposed to be all "military" and "hard?" They get a shield?

The discrepancy bugs me.

They probably all have the shield, the Rose Bowl Unis did, it's just probably hard to see from the low quality of the image.

Those are easily my favorite Oregon jerseys in quite some time. Nice work.

Not another version of the ugliest helmet ever made! Oregon has gone off the deep end!

It was nowhere near close to the ugliest helmet ever made

That looks nothing like the nd helmet :P

Seriously though I think Tulsa takes the cake.

I'm liking this set I just hope they have like carbon pattern on the black jerseys. That light grey looks kinda cheap.

Interesting. I expected Texas to, but it appears they didn't.

So what's the deal with Oregon leaking this picture late last month?

That made it look the the double O helmet might be the primary helmet again.

I doubt they'd get rid of the double O helmet. That has started to become iconic IMO. The new green-winged helmet is probably just another alternate Oregon has to offer.

Why? Does it also make it look like the white jersey and black pants will be the primaries?

These helmets may not the worst ever, but they are the worst helmets that Oregon has ever had.

I'm surprised they didn't switch sooner. Seems like they're one of the high profile Nike schools. good to see they didn't change much though.

Can you even say that Oregon has primaries?

I'm glad they switched to the new template. Their shoulder stripes always looked bad on the old template.

I really like the way these shoulder stripes are looking on the flywire template. Colts, SMU, USC.

Ok, so primary might be the wrong word, but I thought that would be the template (not the color scheme) for this season, just like I assume the pants in that image (stripeless) will be the template for the pants this season.

Disagree.

i think we need to see the whole Oregon package before making any judgments about it. if anyone is going to surprise us its them. they could have a couple of winged helmets and a couple of the O helmets. im pretty excited to see it all together
