Oregon’s uniforms aren’t the only aspect of the football program more crazy and colorful than the rest of college football. Its fans follow suit.
During the fourth quarter of the third-ranked Ducks’ 43–21 road win over Arizona State on Thursday night, the ESPN cameras panned to an Oregon supporter with a beard that needs to be seen to be believed. It’s dyed a dark neon green, with the exception of the goatee part. That is colored in with the same hue you would find on a highlighter.
Throw in a green-and-yellow, tie-dyed shirt and green-and-yellow beads around the neck and you have an Oregon fan as Jim Henson would have envisioned him. Not to be outdone is his female companion, sporting a long-flowing neon green wig and cat ears.
Halloween has come early to Ducks Nation.
