Oregon's New Mascot: Its Football Players

+ More

When University of Oregon football players go to Las Vegas this week, they could be wearing new lime green helmets with silver flames. New uniforms are expected to match. Players who spoke to the Register-Guard made a valiant effort to be positive. "It's something we have to get used to," said one. "I'm speechless," said another. "I guess if a duck was yellow, that's what I'd envision it to look like," said another. Deadspin put it less diplomatically: "It Might Save Oregon Some Money," the site posited, "to just give everyone in the crowd LSD."
