Seeing as he’s a FIJI brother of mine, I respect Nike Founder and effective Oregon Head Football Coach/Chancellor/Dean of Students Phil Knight. The dude may look like the result of a Michael Caine and Louis C.K. sperm splicing experiment, but he sure knows how to treat his football players. From new jerseys every week to their unbelievable state-of-the-art football facility, the Oregon Ducks are far and away the most pampered pack of pigskin players in college football.

When you are just pumping out jersey designs, though, you’re gonna run out of ideas eventually — and it appears Oregon has finally hit that point.

From SB Nation:

Oregon will break out new uniforms on Saturday against Washington State, and this time, it isn’t just about different colors. The Ducks will be wearing uniforms called “Oregon Pioneers” by Nike, which are intended to honor the history of the state of Oregon.

Each jersey will have a unique topographical map featuring a different part of the state. The helmet, seen above, includes 1800s American frontier explorers Lewis and Clark (and The Duck) pointing westward, and the back has a 33-star flag, the number the United States flag had for two years after Oregon joined the union.

Check these things out. They look like someone took all the worst ideas from the Oregon state quarter brainstorming session (keeping the silver color for continuity’s sake) and vomited them onto fabric. The duck alongside Lewis and Clark gets me every time. It’s terribly inaccurate, too — those dudes were so famished they would have killed and eaten that little turd before he could even get his wing halfway to pointing position.

Respect the past. Win the Day. The @usnikefootball Mach Speed "Pioneer" uniform. #GoDucks
