by Bryan Kalbrosky
Always a cool day to be an Oregon fan: when we get to see the first Nike uniforms of the season.
In this album by Oregon Football on Facebook, Nike released the uniforms that Oregon will wear for the upcoming spring game tomorrow morning. The uniforms (one set in black and one set in white) also feature “Support Our Troops” lettering highlighted on the backs of the jerseys.
Perhaps another highlight is the slick and clean helmet and American flag golden stitching on the jerseys.
Oregon fans look forward to kickoff at the intersquad game at 11:00 AM on April 27.

Oregon Men’s Basketball: Oregon Ducks Ranked in Top 25 For First Time Since 2007
The Oregon Ducks have cracked the Associated Press Men’s Basketball Top 25 Rankings for the first time since 2007.
Dana Altman and the Oregon Ducks (14-2, 3-0) have started off with stellar opening conference play and extend an impressive home winning streak at Matthew Knight Arena. After upset heavy favorite Arizona on Thursday night, Oregon went on to defeat Arizona State late Sunday evening. They travel to Southern California this weekend to face USC (Thursday, 8:00 PM PST) No. 24 UCLA (Saturday, 1:00 PM PST).

Oregon Football: Ducks Unveil New ‘Storm LA’ Uniforms for Upcoming USC Game
The latest news out of Eugene this morning? The Oregon Ducks will be wearing some beautiful new jerseys on November 3rd against USC. In celebration, we present you with a caption contest for this image.
Of course, this is no surprise to anyone who has followed the Oregon football team for more than a few weeks. Uniforms have been a highlight for the Ducks in the “Nike-era” of Oregon football. In the most important game of the season to date, however, the unveiled jerseys certainly represent reason to be excited.
The Nike Pro Combat “system of dress” represents the latest stage of innovation from Nike fly wire and equipment technology, featuring extremely reduced weight and high-tenacity woven thread.
Oregon’s white vapor uniforms feature an enhanced “wing design” now iconic to Ducks unis, mesh backs optimal for cooling and ventilation, and a hyper strong base layer. Nike has done a beautiful job in uniforming Oregon for the weekend.
To see a photo album of each of these pictures, click this photograph or this link. To watch a video on how the uniform was designed by Nike, click this link.

Oregon Ducks Pit Crew: Nike Blog Write-Up On Custom New Pit Crew Gear
This morning, the Oregon Ducks Pit Crew was given a great surprise: we had a featured write-up on the Nike Blog!
Complete with pictures advertising our new gear, check out the entire story by clicking this link. The post was overwhelmingly favorable and can be read here:
Ever wonder what kind of gear Nike makes for the student section at its favorite university’sbasketball games? If your answer is no, I get it: it’s a pretty niche topic. You may not want to continue. Here’s a cat GIF page; I’m particularly fond of the ejection system one. But if this interests you, hit the jump for the full gamut of Oregon Pit Crew shirts and apparel by Nike.
This year, that full gamut includes the annual Pit Crew shirt (I’m a large, by the way …), warm-up pants and a shooting shirt. No plan for another round of Oregon Air Jordans, but anything could happen. These won’t be for sale publicly, so if you want one … uh, go to Matt Knight Madness tonight in Eugene and be a U of O student. (H/T to Kevin W. for the pictures.)
Please share our new gear and if you have it, wear it at every game!
Come to the volleyball game tonight against Washington.
