For years we’ve watched NIKE run fashion experiments on the University of Oregon’s athletic department like mad scientists run amok. Each uniform is brighter, flashier and gaudier than the previous attempt. They even went so far as to create a Fortress of NIKE-tude for the basketball team. Now we’ve been presented with the Ducks’ Rose Bowl uniforms. As you can see from the promotional images, they are terrifying. They look like stills from Predator 2. What kind of beastly Hell Duck has wings like that? I don’t know. I just know I wouldn’t want to run into an Oregon Duck in a dark alley. [NIKE Blog]
