The University of Oregon football program has been known for a few things in recent years: having a great team (except for in 2016), a fast-paced, high-scoring offense, and incredibly unique uniforms. Going forward in 2017, new head coach Willie Taggart appears to be ditching the unique uniforms. Taggart comes to Eugene in 2017 after being hired away from USF following Oregon’s firing of Mark Helfrich. Under Helfrich in 2016, Oregon went 4-8 while showcasing some odd and eccentric uniforms. The 2017 set hasn’t been released yet, and the plans for them are “considered top secret by Oregon and Nike” according to OregonLive. “We’re going to try to stick to more traditional colors this year,” Kenny Farr, UO’s football equipment administrator, told OregonLive last week. “Trying to kind of simplify a few things but still keep it modern and keep it looking really good.” If the school is going to a traditional scheme like Farr says, there should probably be more green and yellow.
Oregon football uniforms hopefully won’t be as eccentric in 2017
