I don’t know what astounds me more about this story – that a kid would pick a college based on the school’s uniform, or that a kid would pick Oregon based on the school’s uniform.
… The recruiting gossip last winter was he was almost certainly headed to Florida State, but the seeds of his cross-country sojourn were initially sown on a faithful October afternoon when he and some buddies watched Oregon nip USC on television.
Said Blount, “Those uniforms are tight.”
“Would you go there?” a buddy asked.
“I’d go there.”
And the rest, as they say, is history.
