(For those who want to check the uniform articles immediately–scroll down this page and you will find the 19 articles and videos pronto.)
This BEST of Oregon’s Amazing Uniforms page is one of 12 new sections of the incredible 1,000+ piece Oregon Football Repository that can be found up on the Toolbar. It has been an enlightening experience for me to find all these articles and videos, and my hope is that these new sections will be a great place to retreat to when you want a break from “real-life” and wish the pleasant diversion of reading about our Beloved Ducks.
As you know–another signature part of the Oregon Brand and identity is the introduction of new uniforms, and the concept of mixing them up from week to week, and changing them completely every couple of years. We turned the nation on it’s ear with our gradual movements until finally everyone began copying the Ducks. It’s great to be a leader!
Brian Libby is a professional writer in Portland who has contributed a ton of articles on this site for fun, and one of his passions is closely examining and pondering the latest uniform “kits” as he refers to. (He has written many books about Oregon football that you can still acquire) Many of the articles are below as he and I have spent hours on the phone over the years discussing the latest green and yellow rendition and hooting at other teams’ attempts to duplicate our Oregon’s innovations.
Brian is part of a group I call the “Greybeards” of fellow Duck fans who have been associated with the site in the past or present and whom I enjoy staying in touch with and swapping “Duck Tales” with. One of the benefits of FishDuck.com for me has been the friendships made around the US and world with fellow fans of our Beloved Ducks. It is a treasure beyond value….
Below is a collection of articles written on this site and other places about the uniforms, as well as some really cool videos created by professionals detailing some of the best uniform combinations. Great fun for all!

FishDuck….you are one WEIRD Dude.
I’ve heard that before. Often people do not like my contrarian view to some topics, but being a football critic is who I am.
I will call it as I see it whether positive or negative, and I will never create anything to simply generate a response; I believe in everything I write.
If we were all in agreement, then there are fewer opportunities to learn and I do love the debates we have in our protected environment. More discussion creates more learning, which makes us all better fans. Let’s make the most of it!
