Never say "It can't get any worse."

As far as I can tell, the Oregon Ducks football team wears a different variation on their uniform for every game.

Every game, I think their uniform is the ugliest thing I have ever seen a group of human beings wear. But just when I think that, they play yet another game and take the ugly to a whole new level. In the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl last night, they had the whole package, from the ugly helmets to the clumsy font for the numbers to the grotesquely garish shoes and socks.

And, oh yeah, they lost the game on the last play, 22-19.

Anything else, Matty Boy?

Now that you mention it, hypothetical question asker, both teams in the first half didn't just play sloppy football, it looked like they were trying not to score. Anyone betting on the under in this game won their bet very comfortably, possibly too comfortably.

Neither team would've beaten Wisconsin, let alone TCU or Boise State. Both were too cute for their own good. I've never seen one team, let alone two, call so many trick plays that blew up in their faces. It was like watching Wile E. Coyote coach against Pinky and the Brain.

As for Oregon's kits, the phrase "misdemeanor against humanity" kept coming to mind. Ewww.

The color of their shoes and socks should only be worn by people working near quickly moving traffic.
