The yellow is really the worst one. It might look OK with a whole field full of guys wearing it, but I'm not holding my breath. The far right one looks best and the white is OK. I think the guy on the left is a poor model for the far left (his uni looks too small on him in the arms - I know this is done on purpose during play but it looks bad in the pic).
I don't love them, but I only hate the yellow one. Yay?
Really it's not all that different from what they've been wearing other than the matching helmets. I don't so much dig the highlighter yellow they've been using, but it brings a smile to my face when I get to see them play in it. I have no clue why.
At least they didn't do the one sleeve opposite color with matching undershirt like Florida and Miami and Virginia Tech did cause that's just awful stuff too.
They might be the worst college unis., but the worst football unis have to go to the old Denver Broncos brown-and-mustard unis of the early 60s....

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

Yes, the mismatched sleeves make baby Jesus cry. Those abortions are worse than anything I've seen on Oregon. That said, recent history proves that it's not such a good idea to be that tight with Nike, especially considering Oregon's color scheme. Is there any context where that yellow is a good idea?
Did Phil Knight have problems with members of the Oregon football team in the 70's and this is his way of getting a level of payback? A dishonorable mention still has to go to Miami for the game where they wore uniforms where they looked like Baylor last season.
Here (uniwatchblog.com) is an article that gives some of Nike's perspective on these uniforms. Apparently, the student atheletes were given input into the designs. And these outfits look exactly like two or three good designs mashed into some sort of compromise concept that wind up leaving nobody happy.
You believe me, don't you? Please believe what I just said...
Better question: So what if it doesn't? The NFL doesn't need L.A. and the teams that have been there before have never drawn well. I know, I know, No. 2 TV market, but what good does that do you if every game is blacked out?
