PHOTO: Oregon Ducks Football Shiny Green Helmets

It seems every year the biggest Pac-12 story that people care about in the offseason isn't depth charts or preseason rankings or Heisman contenders, but what exactly Oregon will be wearing this fall.

Why? Because people can have opinions on sports, but smarter people can correct them or dumber people can shout over them. There's always some stratification when it comes to the sporting discourse. Fashion on the other hand? Fashion makes our eyes feel like they've been all healed And football fashion? It brings the men of the world together like german pilsners and Paul Newman movie marathons. "Those unis are fresh boy."

First of all, the Oregon jerseys are either re-hashes or small modifications to current designs. They're decent, but nothing worth opening your eyes over. You've probably seen the look in some form before. Since I'm a fan of all things radical Oregon uniform redesign, I'd honestly rather see the Puddles unis go into production.

That helmet though? Looks sweet.

It's basically a modified version of the 2012 Rose Bowl silver-domed helmets. It's pretty sleek.

What do you guys think?

I've always loved the "O" helmets
but that green lid looks pretty special

even as a Husky I have to say, that helmet is sick.

That helmet is the coolest thing I've ever seen, and I've seen six Batmobiles next to each other.

I can’t wait to see the different variations of it that are used throughout the season.. Imagine the new winged-style helmets at the "blackout" game!
