In the latest attempt to breathe some life into the NFL Pro Bowl, the league revealed a new high-tech Nike football uniform Tuesday. The flashy new Nike Elite 51 Pro Bowl Uniform is not only built for optimal ventilation; it also looks pretty badass.
That is, outside of the fact that there’s a striking resemblance to the uniforms worn by the University of Oregon and Oregon State–a fact that plenty of onlookers have tweeted about since the release.
The NFL Pro Bowl has been searching for ways to bring more interest and excitement to a game that most consider a meaningless exhibition a week before the Super Bowl. As a result, the league has moved away from the NFC vs. AFC format for the first time in 40 years. Instead, players will be drafted fantasy football-style, with the two leading vote-getters representing team captains. The game is set to take place in Honolulu, Hawaii on January 26, 2014.
