Video: ESPN's Jon Gruden Tells Marcus Mariota He Rooted Against Oregon Because Of The Ducks' Uniforms

Jon Gruden appearing on ESPN.

ESPN's Jon Gruden is apparently not a fan of Oregon's brightly-colored uniforms. 

On Monday, ESPN aired Gruden's QB Camp with former Ducks' quarterback Marcus Mariota, who is expected to be a top-10 pick in the NFL Draft. 

During Mariota's session with Gruden, the NFL analyst expressed some distaste for Oregon's fluorescent yellow uniforms, saying he rooted against the Ducks when they wore them.

Gruden, of course, said all of this while wearing a neon-yellow polo. We're guessing a man of his intelligence realizes the irony in his comments.
