Former OU safety Reggie Smith: “It’s crazy how it works, but it’ll probably be beneficial for recruiting. You know, Oregon has about 15 different jerseys. I’m pretty sure that helps them out. I think it will at the end of the day.”

Former OU tight end Trent Smith: “Our tradition is winning; it's not any particular uniform.”

Former OU center Gabe Ikard (on Twitter): “Wearing different jerseys once or twice a year gets better recruits and brings more energy to the team. It’s all about winning.”

Former OU fullback J.D. Runnels (on Twitter): “Feel like OU threw back instead of following newer trendy styles. As long as current team & recruits like it I’m cool w/it.”

Former OU running back DeMarco Murray (on Twitter): “I see @OU_CoachStoops bringin the swag out with the new @OU_Football uniforms! Wish I could have them back in the day #bringthewood.”

OU co-offensive coordinator Josh Heupel (on Twitter): “Matte finish is played out, it’s all about the wood grain.”
