I know every game for the whole season all the way

Meet the man who already knows everything they

EUGENE Oregon has become so famous for its myriad combinations of football uniforms that along with each kickoff comes the guessing game about which set the Ducks will wear.

For many, the anticipation lasts until only a few hours before each game.

For Kenny Farr, whose job is keeping track of those football uniforms, the secret of UO 2014 uniforms was out in May. His workload is so cumbersome it demands he have a head start on Oregon combinations, even as the rest of the Ducks fanbase will wait, rapt, into fall.

And no, he not telling a soul.

“We get that stuff decided way, way in advance,” said Farr, who started at Oregon as a student manager in 1997 before returning in 2008 to manage baseball equipment. “We know what we going to wear for the full season by May 2. I know every game for the whole season all the way down to decal colors on the helmets, socks, wristbands, all those details.

The pink helmet Oregon wore against Washington State in 2013 had similarly long been planned for an October game because of the month breast cancer awareness theme.

“For me, from the equipment standpoint, it very helpful because I can work on stuff weeks and weeks ahead,” Farr said.

How Oregon decides on its uniforms for each football season is a long, collaborative process that begins with ideas from Nike and takes input from Oregon players, funneled to Nike via Farr, to reach a workable set. The company then advises the school when each set might look best suggestions that take into account rivalries or important games with large exposure but it ultimately up to the school what it will wear.

For discretion, only a small circle of trusted people is kept in the loop a group that includes Farr, head coach Mark Helfrich, Todd Van Horne, Nike creative director for football, and others. Due to the costs of wearing all new uniforms based on a look debuted at the Alamo Bowl, UO 2014 uniform budget will be large enough to buy a nice condo. (Oregon is expected to receive more than a $1 million in gear from Nike this year, according to previous contracts between the two).

## ## Players have long had a say in what they wear, as well, although whether Nike uses the suggestions is another issue.

“Those guys are a lot more creative than we would ever be,” offensive coordinator Scott Frost said. “So for us to give them suggestions would be like them telling us what formations to run.”

Nonetheless, senior cornerback Dior Mathis is a common figure in Oregon equipment room, asking trainers about tweaking this piece or that.

“I know Josh Huff really at one point wanted to wear all yellow,” Farr said. “I think he wanted to wear it the previous season but we wore it against Tennessee. Nike might have come to that conclusion anyway but it was an idea I remember meeting with Nike saying, I have a recommendation from a player. . There are a few drafts of this. We show it to some key players and coach Helfrich.”

Certain looks, such as the all white “stormtrooper” get up, are so popular they return nearly every season. Any sooner than that, though, and they run afoul of one of Oregon general rules.

“We try not to obviously wear the same thing twice in a season,” Farr said.

Because Nike supplies 10 of the Pac 12 dozen schools Utah wears Under Armour and UCLA dons adidas it has the power to play matchmaker with uniforms in order to find the right aesthetic. The schools make the final call but still listen to the suggestions of its supplier for what might look best when, say, Oregon eight pants, six helmets and seven cleats meet Arizona State five helmets, four pants and four jerseys.

In 2013, the Sun Devils even left their uniform choices for games against Colorado and Oregon State up to a vote of fans.
