Willie Taggart could be bringing a bit of Oregon's style to his new program at Florida State.

Taggart spent less than one calendar year in Eugene, but he's taking a bit away from his former program.

According to Seminoles star cornerback Levonta Taylor, Taggart told the team that new uniform combinations could be on the horizon for the program.

From CBS Sports:

“Yeah, everybody liked his vibe that he brought in, his character. You’ve seen the videos of him doing the Seminole chop everywhere and just saying we’ll wear a different uniform combination,” Taylor said Friday. “Everybody was just happy.”

[...]

"Yeah, Coach said if uniforms are going to help us go out there and put points on the board, we're going to wear them," running back Jacques Patrick said. "Whatever helps win. I saw at Oregon obviously they had all those different uniforms, but we have some nice stuff down here. That's what we are excited to use this upcoming year. It'll be nice."

Florida State has mixed things up on occasion, but generally the Seminoles wear the same looks on a week-to-week basis. For a classic program, that is how things go. Oregon is a different animal, with new combinations virtually every week. We doubt things will go that far, but a special jersey or two per year wouldn't surprise me.
