Nike issues a press release even when Oregon Football debuts new spring game uniforms. So is it possible that the brand surreptitiously, with absolutely no fanfare, leaked the new Oregon Football jerseys?
Kind of looks that way. Late Wednesday, a few new jerseys started surfacing at select retailers, including a yellow Ducks style that features completely reimagined wings. The sublimated feather print is still present, but it’s more detailed than previous iterations, including what appears to be subtle imagery or a distinctive pattern within each “feather.”
There’s one last point that seems to indicate this is more than just an off-field fashion option. Despite Marcus Mariota’s name on the back — Nike selling the jerseys of famous alumni is hardly uncommon — the new Oregon Football jerseys actually feature the word “Game” in their official product name.
Updates as they develop. . . .
