The Ducks released a slideshow for their new over-the-top facility

The Oregon football uniforms are now the second-most garish thing about Oregon football. GoDucks.com released a slideshow for the Football Performance Center where the Ducks will move this season.

You know how Google or other Silicon Valley giants have over-the-top offices full of amenities? The Oregon Football Performance Center would make them blush.

Keep in mind, this facility was once reported to have a hot tub video room. After looking at the slideshow, we’re wondering why not.

This place needs a name, and we have some suggestions:

• Duckingham Palace

• Duck-ri-la

• The Battlestar Quacklactica

• The Knight House

• The Duck Star

• Castle Duckskull

• The Quack Mahal

• The Fortress of Duckitutde

• The Webbed Foot Locker

• The House Rich Brooks Built

• New Quack City

• Gracepond

• The Neverland Pond

(We'll add more nicknames if you have them, tweet us at @AthlonSports or post to our Facebook page).

Among the key captions from Oregon's slideshow:

• The 145,000-square-foot facility features black glass to signify stealth and 40-foot cantilevers that illustrate the various building blocks necessary to build a successful program.

• Many of the high-profile trophies won by Oregon are housed in the lobby's trophy case. Others are featured elsewhere in the building. (Ed. note: You cannot find a Heisman here)

• The lobby's ring room is not to be missed, with LED lighting and 3D sound enhancing the presentation of Oregon's bowl and championship rings. (Ed. note: You cannot find a national championship trophy here)

• Yes, among the stalls in the locker room is one designated for 'Uncle Phil.'

• Just off the locker room is a barber shop, which will over on-site haircuts at student rates.

• Press conferences and postgame interviews will take place in a new media room that features theater-style seating, and four 'confessional' booths for one-on-one interactions.

• The War Room sits 22 around a grand table, has six 80-inch monitors and, like much of the rest of the facility, black magnetic walls that are also writable/erasable.

• The sixth-floor skybridge features a flock of ducks representing Oregon's NFL draftees, identified by their initials on each individual duck.

• Just inside the player lounge's outdoor deck are a pool table crafted in Portland and two foosball tables, each with one 11-player team in green and yellow and the other representing the rest of the Pac-12.
