Dan Lanning shared his thoughts on the cleats after Wednesday’s practice.
“They look cool. They look really cool,” Lanning said. “I think that’s a great representation of what it’s like to be at Oregon and be connected with a place like Nike, and how much they do for us and how they make an impact on our program, because those are pretty neat.
“And what I love about it is, when these guys are wearing it at practice, I can tell if they’re practicing hard. If their cleats aren’t turning colors, then we got problems.”
Adding to the anticipation for UO’s first game of the season against a ranked opponent, Oregon is calling for a stripe-out at Autzen Stadium. The atmosphere is expected to be electric for kickoff at 12:30 p.m. PT. Those who aren’t traveling to Eugene can watch on ABC.
