Mike Bellotti Gets 5-Year Extension, 5 New Suits

Oregon head coach Mike Bellotti has agreed to a five year contract extension. Bellotti made the announcement during a series of five different press conferences in which he wore five different Nike suits that also came with the deal, one for each year of the contract.

Bellotti noted that by mixing and matching the various pieces, he actually has 372 different suit combinations, only 400 fewer choices than the football team has on game days.

Funny shit, especially the tire-tread one. What bozo at Nike thought of that for a uni pattern?

Any word on whether Jamarcus Russell has any Nike suit deals lined up?

The yellow coat reminds me of Bruce Weber at Illinois when he wore that orange coat at the National Champ. Game a couple of years ago.

Good stuff guys!

This is almost as good as the Halloween costumes... The diamond plate on the lapels in the last photo is freaking priceless!

It's hard to pick on the Ducks for anything else but they're like that one person who, every year, comes to the office holiday party inappropriately dressed -- all the while they think they're just the shit as the rest of the room snickers behind their back.

I hope M fans are as kind to you as Duck fans were to me when I went to Eugene a few years back.

As a Oregonian and a UofO Duck fan I have to say...

That is some funny shit right there!

I love the diamondplate version, every time I see that diamondplate garbage I puke a little into my mouth.
