Mixed reactions for new uniforms

Beaver Nation and the college football world greeted the new Oregon State football uniforms with mixed reviews Friday. Some loved the uniforms, others mentioned that they looked like the players had training bras on. Here's what some in Beaver Nation and the Pac-10 had to say about the new duds.

I like 'em! I think with shoulder pads it'll look even better! - AnchorageBeav on BeaverFootball.com

I see one big upgrade: The numbers will actually be readable now.

I was never a big fan of the last version of the jersey. The numbers look nice and clean on this one, particularly the black version. - OrangeAttack on BeaverFootball.com

I don't know where the whole bra thing came from. I think they look great and am not really getting where they look like a bra. If the orange came down more it might appear that way. Maybe ASUDevil is still wearing his training bra and made the connection. - ElCinoStrikesAgain on BeaverFootball.com

I am okay with the homes, but I do not like the aways. Last year's aways were tops. These homes are okay, not the greatest, but okay. I like the orange with black, better than the black with orange... - ATownBeaver on BeaverFootball.com

Thumbs down. Why didn't we learn from UofO's dealings with Nike...they don't make good uniforms. - on BeaverFootball.com

I'm glad we have and orange top option now, but I'm just not happy with what others are calling the "bra" look. I think that it could have been done a bit differently, like extending the color down under the arms or something to take away that look. I also don't like that there is no mention really of "Oregon State" or "Beavers" or "OSU" or anything on the shirts. I guess maybe I just like the classic look a bit more in that respect.- Flocito on BeaverFootball.com

Does Adidas do a clothing line!? What happened to a good solid color with some addition trim?  Just too much to get with...the home uni's with the training bra thingyThe new uni's and having the spring game on opening day (trout season)...Bobby this is tough to get over. - Sarg1 on BeaverFootball.com

The unis are great.   The players like them and so do the recruits - that is what counts.  As for this training bra talk, O don't see it.   People will always find something to talk crap about...especially if they are jealous.  Even if the unis were super ugly...the ucks have ABSOLUTELY NO room to speak. - imthebiggestfan on BeaverFootball.com

After looking at the unis more, I do like them. It sounds like the players really like them. I would guess that the players like the orange uni the best since that is OSU's main color. Overall, I like 'em. -

First Oregon starts winning and OSU suddenly gets respectable. Then we build a new practice facility and OSU does the same. Then we expand the stadium and build up the locker rooms. A few years later the Beavs do the same. In 2005 Oregon wins 10 games after a few mediocre years. A year later OSU does the same. Then the Ducks come out with the ugliest costume seen since Liberace died in 87 and now the Beavs come up with a football uniform for girls. WTF is going on up there? Is it some sort of football echo? Hell, next year you'll probably win 7 games and tank going down the stretch. The again, you know what they say. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... - DuckR on BeaverFootball.com

Just when you thought it was safe to bring the kids out again, Nike decides to go dork on the Beevs. It wasn't enough to make the Ducks the class clowns of college football. Now the entire state's a laughing stock.

Well, at least this guarantees the Civil War in Eugene will be broadcast in 1080i nationwide. I can almost see it now...the Ducks in all yellow (with grellow helmets) and the Beavers in all orange.

God help us. - roguedux on educk.com

How the hell can M. Riley stand there with a big grin on his face, surrounded by that uglitude?

Well, if you believe any sort of notoriety is good, there is an upside; it guarantees that when the Civil War comes around, it will set a record for the ugliest collection of uniforms ever assembled on one field by two teams at the same time. Hands down.

Unbelievable!! - BlueDuck2 on educk.com

Beaver fans are mixed about the school's relationship with Nike, but the players (whether they like the look or not) are unanimous on how good the uniforms feel and probably give them an advantage in some ways.

Like the design or not, the team will benefit from the advanced technology, which I'm sure has helped in recruiting for the ucks. - Beaver91 on BeaverFootball.com

It's official: The State of Oregon takes first place in the ugliest college uniforms in the country.

What is in the water!? - jwclark2342 on WildcatInsider.com

I think the all black unis are consistent and don't look to busy compared to the ugly orange jerseys on top of black pants or the white jerseys on black pants.

Neither are all that pretty either but I like the all black unis.

Orange & black is a great color combination, but the Beavers' football unis often are too complicated. Simpler is usually better when it comes to unis. - ClarkWilhelmGriswold on Devils Digest.com

Those uni's aren't that bad. UO's are pretty popular. They've tweaked it several times and it looks pretty good now. - guyoncomputer on BruinReportOnline.com

Are the bikinis on front for real? Beaver Nation needs to kick off a mass email campaign to rid the school of having uniforms featuring women's swimwear on the front. If that's what they really look like, OS will be the laughing stock of the Pac 10. - ASUundevil Fan on BeaverFootball.com
