Just stop it, Oregon

The Rose Bowl just kicked off and the Oregon players are running around with chrome on their heads.

What will Nike do next?

    Always having fresh duds seems like an advantage to me.

    Nice look…..and if they were in the SEC they’d be about 6th in the conference, but with way-cool lids…….

    Like it but if i’m Wisconsin’s coach(es), i’m telling the refs that if they play with those helmets, i’m putting a couple hundred people in the stands w/ mirrors to even out the glare. i can’t believe the refs even allowed it. Did they? Are they (the refs and ncaa admin) really that oblivious?

    How can that be legal? Wouldn’t the sun shining off those things blind the other team?

    I don’t get how people see this and think “cool”. Most idiotic thing ever
    since their LAST “costumes”.

    Must be the kids who grew up on Power Rangers, think this **** is cool.

    OK what I would do if I were Wisky………focus in on the helmets and see what plays the QB is calling in the huddle by the reflection.

    Those helmets are unreal. I wish we would hand over the keys to Nike and just tell them to “go Oregon on us.” if we’re going to win six games in a good we might as well get some attention… Go ducks!

    I thought they looked ‘pimp’ – which is good. Better than not going to a bowl

    And I thought the cheerleaders were the ones most concerned with the “uniforms” that they were wearing…seriously can we play football and stop worrying about having the coolest costume

    Oregon has evolved into “Look at me, look at me!” Looks like that thing trying to kill Sarah Conner in the Terminator movie.

    If Oregon is going with Destro, I say we one-up them and get Cobra Commander helmets next year.

    When did it become cool to wear tin foil on your head?

    Neon and Chrome they look like strippers…

    they got cool unis. glad to see a team with some creativity and imagination. i’d like to see them wear a different uni for every game

    The helmets look good enough as a stand-alone item, I guess. The biggest problem with them is that they don’t fit in with the rest of the uniform at all. It looks like Oregon had to borrow another team’s helmets for the game.

    Those helmets look like a honda motorcycle gas tank.

    all you complaining about uniforms again. A- your on a uk blog so oregon probably isn’t your favorite team so shutup. B- They just won the rose bowl while our wildcats didn’t go to any bowl so we have no place trying to criticize them. C- for the guy who said lets forget about looking fancy and just play football…oregon looks fancy, and plays football, and they do both very well. D- yes its probably what the players want and oregon players could care less what a uk fan wants them to wear. E- its new, its innovative, its different, get over it.

    The only legitimate complaint is that the glare could blind the players. I agree with that but unless wisconsin complained about it,then fans can’t complain. Most of the same people that hate these helmets probably also hate when UK wears black. Get over yourselves, its about what the players want, if its not effecting the game negatively, then there should be no complaints. Its okay to not like something, but don’t act like its taking away from the game, because its not.

    40 I think iread may have read one negative comment out of 40…… Pick your fight elsewhere. That being said those helmets r sweet!

    Love em. GOOD FOR THEM. I like teams that try new stuff. Love what Oregon does changing the Uni’s around. Hope we do the same. Our fanbase needs to loosen up and enjoy some change.

    What are they, the Great Gazoos?
    The upside is that the aliens won’t be able to read their thoughts ; )
    Would think they wouldn’t be legal because of the glare/reflection.

    They were wicked and they changed color or hue when the sun went down. You will see a lot of teams try it and some of them will look great.

    Drew just because you’re jealous doesn’t mean you have to hate on other teams who have better ideas than you could ever dream of, judging by your fashion choices you have no room to criticize ANYONE’S fashion choices lol

    Love it. This would be a great way to lure some recruits. Young athletes love the opportunity to be different. Whether it is wristbands or headbands or whatever they want to be different. This is a great move by Chip Kelly to say if you want to look different from the other guys come here. No different then the basketball uniforms with the murals on the back.
