Everything you ever wanted to know about the ugliest helmet in the history of organized football is inside this link.: Click it. You know you want to. (Pantheon: I think we need a new 'ugly' category, just for this post. Trust me.)

Whats up with the ghost flames. Are they changing their name to the Oregon Flamers?

Its not really bad looking at all. Its just different.....way different in a cool sort of way.

Just wondering who pays for all these "uniforms" OU wears? And the helmet is almost "nice" compared to their jerseys. And I also wonder who gives the OK and says "Hey that is really good looking!" There has to be something going on because I can't imagine players putting on some of those combinations and feeling like they have the pride that a USC or Penn State (one extreme to another) player has.

The helmet if "off the chain". Tieguy, its only a matter of time before we see a "swoosh stripe" on our paper currency.

< and i also wonder who gives the ok and says hey that is really good looking!>> I never could get the picture to work, but I can imagine. In a retrospective moment, I don't think anyone thinks these uniforms look good, but they get attention. Nike is genius in that making these hideous uniforms gets them (and the University of Oregon) TV time. Granted, it's an evil genius, but genius nonetheless...

I have no comment on the Oregon Helmet but I dearly loved the Drood's Limecat helmet. Panteeze scares me! Advertising on a dollar bill? Hmm? Wonder how long it will be? Then, there is the naming of the White House. I can almost hear the tour guide; "Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the Exxon-Mobil White House. We will be touring the Toyota Oval Office and the Coca Cola Rose Garden, along with the Smirnoff ..." I guess the older we get, the more cynical we become.

I like it too. I think it's only appropriate that the U of Zero should have a tie-dye psychedelic helmet for its football team.

Put me down for a "like it" vote. It's different, and probably looks pretty good under the sun or lights. Michigan still has the ugliest helmet, but TAKE IT EASY, before everyone gets bent out of shape, I know it has history and tradition and all that crap.

I hate you. As for the helmet it could be worse. They could have the radioactive slug on their helmet.
