    Uniforms for Oregon?

    Does anyone know the uniform combo for Oregon? Seems like Under Armor would plan something special for this game.

  • Tomasina

    The Utes Equipment twitter usually posts them once the team has selected the uniform combination.

    I think satin helmets with white jersey and white pants would look cool.

    • Hockeybeard

      If we can’t get approval for all red then I like this idea.

      All red vs. an oregon in their all green would really look good under the lights!

    • UteSteve

      This is what I want to see as well. Throwing a black mask on the satin red looks awesome too. Like this:

  • Tacoma Ute

    I miss the 70s, 80s and 90s. Red helmets, red jerseys and white pants at home. Red helmets, white jerseys and red pants on the road. Simple, effective, great-looking and Utah always looked like Utah.

    I realize that time is past though, for now at least. Hopefully the alternate uniform overkill will eventually cause a backlash And teams will go back to their classic unis and we’ll be able to turn on a game and instantly know what teams are playing without having to be told.

    • Red Dawn

      I would love it if they could find that same color scheme and do an exact replica (or close to it). I think it would be a cool tribute to those guys from that era.

      • Tacoma Ute

        Yeah, at least for one game and bring back some of the old legends to attend.

    • Hockeybeard

      This is what I think Tacoma looks like during uniform discussions…

      • Tacoma Ute

        Don’t get me wrong. I think a lot of the new uniforms and helmets look ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. I honestly do.

        They just don’t look like Utah. Then again there’s probably people older than me who think it’s not really a Utes helmet without the double block U.

        • Hockeybeard

          I know, I just needed an excuse to post that image…

          Honestly, I think the main reason teams are seen branching out into different uniform combos is because its completely and wholly superficial, but its something that excites the recruiting base. There is no performance increase, there is no substantial change because of the uniform (outside of the indirect benefit of any increased merchandise and retail sales), but it gives the recruits something to talk about and be excited for.

          Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if the U came out next year with a Gray uniform or accent on some of their stuff.

          • Tacoma Ute

            I’ve been expecting the gray version for a couple years now. We already had a basketball version. Maybe we could call it “Dress Like Wazzu Night”. 😀

    • norm

      Yeah, and back then it was a HUGE deal when they wore all red against TDS. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade things now overall, but I remember when it was a big deal and really exciting when they would switch up the uniform combination once the entire year by wearing all read. Now a new uniform means it’s just another week. Kind of takes away from it being special.

      …excuse to post a couple of old images of the all reds from the 80s:

        I love the all red, but I’m not a fan of those black stripes

        • norm

          Actually, I agree. These two are the best of all time, in my opinion:

          Utah 80s red white

  • Bob Sacamano

    I’d assume Oregon will be wearing green. They have a season long “what to wear” section that is telling their fans to wear green this weekend. What to wear

    • Tacoma Ute

      Oregon wearing green? No. That won’t work. That’s their team color. That won’t impress recruits. 😉

      • UteSteve

        To be fair they will probably look more like a glow in the dark green highlighter than their “actual school color” green.

  • Tacoma Ute

    I think a compromise would be in order. Classic Ute uniform combos in 9 games, alternates in the other 3. That would keep us oldies happy who have had the classic look ingrained in our gray matter for decades. It would also allow for a little bling and flash for the recruits.

    Also, if they didn’t change it up so often it would seem like more of an event when they did wear alternates as opposed to wondering every single week what the team will look like.

    • NorthEZUte

      I’d really love to see the throwbacks in more than one game this year. Those are too sweet for one-offs in my opinion.

      • Wilson's Mustache

        They look great & I really wish Utah’s regular uniforms were more like them. They are clean & sharp looking.

      • Tacoma Ute

        I love the classic uni that Eddie Johnson is wearing in UteSteve’s icon.

  • rbmw263

    Hoping for all white. All red would look sweet if they were in all yellow

  • TorontoUte

    Seems like they saved their special unis for the homecoming game against cal (throwback), which are pretty sweet imo

  • LiquidUte

    The uniforms work because they’ve got us all talking – generating some hype. If they were always the same then it would just be one less thing to talk Utes about around the virtual watercooler. That said, White, White, White, White this week please.

    • BioUte

      I’m ready for the White helmet. I think I like our bowl game look last year better than the All Whites though.

      • GadValleyUte

        I loved the candycane look. Maybe we reserve that for the holiday/bowl season?

  • utejeph

    Love the throwback uniforms that were announced for Homecoming. Would like to see something like that for our “normal” uniforms. For this game I want all white with White helmets.

    • LiquidUte

      Yep, and white facemasks. Quad-white.

      • rbmw263

        +1

    • LiquidUte

      Although triple white with black facemasks would be a sick storm trooper look.

      • Mr Chainsaw

        Then our quarterbacks would have an excuse as to why they can never hit a receiver…

  • UteInsider

    They will be wearing all whites with the white facemask. Stormtrooper look.
