Even if you hate Oregon's revolving uniforms, give the Ducks credit for being a marketing marvel.

A few years ago, nobody could imagine that a team unveiling a new uniform would become a weekly event, but that's what has happened with Oregon. Everyone wants to see what Oregon is going to wear, even if it's just to say how awful it is. It's pure genius, and, yes, this attracts some of the best players in America to play there. The Ducks unveiled their uniform for today's game against Tennessee Tech on Twitter, a few hours before kickoff. We're probably not too far from a red carpet event in Eugene on Saturdays.

What we have for this week, which was posted by @GoDucks, the official feed of Oregon athletics, kinda looks like what they've already worn, though I'm looking forward to getting a better look at that helmet.

Ah, let's face it, we're all looking forward to what Oregon wears. That has become the marketable trademark of the program.
