The Rock smells what the Oregon Ducks are cooking

The Oregon Ducks lit social media on fire Thursday, debuting the new Ohana jerseys they will wear on Saturday vs UCLA

The jersey takes its inspiration from the Polynesian culture and prominently features the Lauhala, a design depicting the weaving of the leaves from the Hala tree that represents the foundation of the culture and everything that comes from it.

Even the name of the jersey represents the culture, with the word Ohana being Hawaiian for family.

The extended Oregon Ohana, aka the fanbase, instantly fell in love with the special uniform drop. 

But it was one person, in particular, whose love for the jersey carried a lot more weight than most: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Of course, The Rock loving the Ohana jerseys makes perfect sense.

A) The Rock is arguably the most famous person in the world to come from Polynesian ancestry

B) He was college teammates at Miami with current Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal.

In fact, Cristobal responded to The Rock, showing his love on social as well.

It's always special when one of the most famous men in the world recognizes what your program is doing. 

Needless to say, The Rock smells what the Oregon Ducks are cooking.
