OSU football: Who calls the uniform shots?
It’s a big mystery which football uniforms OSU will wear game to game. It’s an equally big mystery on who will make the uniform decisions.
Mike Gundy is coy, saying he doesn’t want to do it. Certainly OSU doesn’t want Nike calling all the shots, though you figure the Oregonians will have their finger in the pie to some degree. Some players suggested equipment manager Wes Edwards should get to decide, but Wes needs a serious pay raise if he’s going to be saddled with such responsibility.
Boone Pickens and Mike Holder might have a say in the matter, and I’ve never met a regent who didn’t like that kind of action, also.
But the solution is clear. Gundy has in place a leadership council, made up of team leaders, mostly veterans, to deal with a variety of issues. Seems like the perfect problem for the leadership council. Let the players decide. Give them parameters and let them decide.
The mandate is clear. Orange remains OSU’s primary color, so the orange jerseys will be used most. If players want to express themselves, the helmets and pants are the way to do it on a consistent basis. The special-occasion wardrobe is the gray and black jerseys. Trot each out once a year or so. Thursday night. Bedlam. Texas. Whatever anyone thinks.
