What Do You Think of UOregon’s Unies?

For some reason, this photo captures how I view the Oregon football team uniform. It’s one of Digital Fog’s spoofs. And he’s posted a bunch of them today here.

Issue: “I have an idea for a contest,” wrote William Hiatt. “Let’s get readers to vote for the college football team that has the ugliest uniforms. I vote for the University of Oregon Ducks” — from The Slice today.

Editor Steve Smith, an Oregon alum: The uniforms were designed by Nike - which does extensive market research - specifically to appeal to 18- to 24-year-old males as a recruiting tool. Adults hate ‘em, but the kids love ‘em. There’s always more than meets the eye.

DFO: Hey, that’s not my demographic; those Duck uniforms are butt-ugly. (Read the opinion of Sports Illustrated here.)

Question: Can anyone think of a sports team, from PeeWee League to the major, that has uglier unies than the University of Oregon football team?
