College Football 2014 Season

Good source, huh?

Twitter.

Nope, a message board that's broken a few rumors and stories before. Sources have been spot-on with uniforms this season and pretty good about injury updates with regards to who's out and who's coming back that week.

I saw those photos on the Ducks twitter page, not on any message board.

So? These promo shots they put on Twitter are usually just confirmation of what I've read on said message board. The sources on there have contacts with several current players, equipment people, former players, and boosters/alumni. I typically can find out what the combo is about 12-24 hours in advance due to these sources.

I was telling you where I saw those pictures, I was not aware there was a message board specifically for the Ducks.

Saw the picture on twitter from Oregon, Phil Hecken, and HGI posted it on Facebook. So yes, good sources.

The sources on that message board had the combination down to all yellow and the one they're actually using tonight. It wasn't until about hour before Oregon posted on Twitter that the sources confirmed it on that message board.

Rumors from a couple sources are saying that Oregon will be wearing white helmets/Kelly green jerseys/white pants tonight.

Confirmed

That looks awful. There is no white on the jersey. So it doesn't really go with the white pants and helmet.

I wouldn't say awful, but yellow socks/cleats woulda helped balance them out a little more. Silver numbers woulda looked better for this particular combination.

For some reason I like Arizona's all red helmet. Maybe it's because not many teams use red shells with red facemasks and it's a different look. The last team I can think of is the LA Avengers.

My only complaint is the logo is tiny.

Still wish they wore the Desert Swarm helmets and uniforms, though.

Not unsual for Oregon uniforms to have that happen one of the reasons I am not to keen on their uniforms

I'm gonna save judgement till game time. I think wither the yellow tights they wore last week or Apple green tights would make this a better look though.

No, it's a name associated with Arizona. Just look it up and all the sites you pull up are Arizona Wildcat-related.

So you would have wanted the dark green jersey with silver numbers instead? It would have likely gone with the silver on the helmet and shoes better but it was the seniors who wanted this combo and I think it's a solid enough look for them.

Yeah, ASU's is Desert Fuel.

FWIW though, I too was confused by that initial statement and had to look it up.

Me too. I always loved those unis, simply because of the stripes.

I think this set and last week's set are the 2 best looks they've used this season.

I like Oregon's look tonight but the pants and helmet could use a little green or yellow to add a little contrast. Still, not a bad look at all. Arizona has a little too much red going on for my taste. Normally, I'm not a fan of gradient anything, but I gotta admit that I kinda like Arizona's numbers.

I love multi-colored stripes. Arizona's Desert Swarm, Georgia's, the 1976 Dallas Cowboys', such a cool look

I saw this sort of comment earlier and it stuck with me so I just wanted to comment that the O on the back of the helmet is a matching green with the jerseys, along with the Pac 12 sticker and the bumper text

They need a little more than just that.

Yeah as a whole it looked good but would've looked a lot better with yellow socks and cleats. Still a good look though. And isn't it crazy how little details like th kelly O can do a lot to tie a set like that together?
