The costumes in Dark Knight Rises are pretty amaz … wait, these are Oregon’s Rose Bowl uniforms?

Note: I’m pretty sure the wings aren’t an actual part of Oregon’s new Rose Bowl uniforms, but when it comes to Phil Knight Nike Pro Combat experiments, one never knows. Well, here you go Wisconsin: deal with this.

Liquid black metal finish. Armored wing design that will go under the shoulder pads (whatever that means). “Chain Maille Mesh” on the back, arms and sides. More views at Nike’s Facebook page (check out the helmet).

Oh, and the numbers will shift colors as the player moves.

Nike is based in Oregon and Knight, the company’s co-founder, former CEO and current chairman, is a Ducks alum. But he also graduated from the Stanford School of Business … you should see the wild suits those students wear.

    Nike is the devil.

    I don’t understand what all that Nike metallica has to do with ducks. Shouldn’t the unis be feathery green things with yellow bills instead of facemasks? And webbed sneakers?

    OK, so here I am living just outside of Oregon in Vancouver, WA. A city separated from Portland by a dirty, smelly waterway called The Columbia River…perhaps you’ve heard of it.

    We get the Ducks crammed down our throats on the local news, newspapers, and radio. Everyone walks around with a big “O” on their sweaters and every other car has OREGON pasted on the back window. And I’m just talking about the people who live in Vancouver! Doesn’t matter that we have one of the best medical schools in the country (U of WA) or that Linfield has even higher academic standards than Stanford. Even Portland State had Jerry Glanville as it’s head coach up until a couple of years ago. I’m all about supporting local teams, but the Pacific NW isn’t just about The Ducks.

    Now, Chip Kelly…either win a bowl game or shut up. You’re embarrassing.
