2017: Pantone Color of the Year is Ducky

Every year, the Pantone company picks a color that they say represents the coming year. If you are a trendsetter, you'll notice that color popping up everywhere from the fashion runway to Target.

For 2017 they picked "Greenery" which is about as close to Oregon's "Apple Green" as you can get! Check out this fun article about it. https://www.fastcodesign.com/3066350/pantones-new-color-of-the-year-is-weird-and-perfect

Here's the all green uniform they wore in the 2015 Rose bowl and also game 4 of the 2015 season. They worse several individual green pieces this past season but not all-green.

So does that mean that 2017 will be a good year for new coach Willie Taggert and the Ducks?
