Ducks in sartorial solecism
Phil Knight, some of the Oregon Ducks players, and no doubt the Nike Research and Development all played a part in the 2006 Oregon Ducks suits of armor... and they should be ashamed. Did they consult with Santino from Project Runway on this?
According to commentary on Deadspin.com, options now include four pants, three helmets, and four jerseys - that is 48 permutations to delight the eye. Imagine the primary color showdown if they were to visit the Smurf Turf at Boise State!
Sadly, this may take attention from the fantastically talented team they are putting on the field this year. My fantasy breakdown of the Ducks (WR Colvin, TE Rosario, QB Dixon, RB Stewart, above l. to r.) can be found on FantasyCollegeBlitz.com.
