    Ah yes...I guess Henderson from the DP hasn't ticked us off like Neushiel did to UO in that 1996 Cotton Bowl...YET.

    Short of a typo in Pete Coors will, this is correct.

    The barber shop seems like it would be attractive to recruits. This place makes me sick. We really are light years behind.

    And by the Beaver, there's the Buffalo, then the red tailed bird for Utah.

    I wonder if the PAC will eventually redo the divisions such as putting the Buffs & Utes in the North at a point down the road.

    Oregon is a machine. They're like the Terminator. They don't stop. They continually raise the bar. They do this because they can, but also because they have no alternative. If they stop, they die.

    Our greatest homefield advantage may lie in the fact that the visiting team has to deal with Dal Ward. The comforts of home are gone, along with all the other comforts.

    That place is spectacular. I wonder whether USC or Oregon has better facilities.

    I need to stop caring about college football. We will never recruit like Texas, USC and the like cause we're not in the right location. And we can't fight schools like Oregon on this level, and I'm not sure that I want too. That whole thing was impressive, but it seems... stupid.
    All that for some football players. I don't know, I found it depressing.

    Oregon fans couldn't have even dreamed of this back in the early 90s. It just goes in cycles...eventually, Colorado will get back into the national conversation. Just remember how awful Oregon used to be, and they made themselves pretty good before Phil Knight showed up. Colorado will rebound eventually. Teams like Washington State, and Utah, on the other hand, are going to have a much tougher time.

    It's way over the line. I mean, I'm for upgrading facilities and sure I'd take this if someone decided to build it, but it's just hard to imagine where it goes from here. Even more sickening that this will be "out of date" and either Oregon or someone else will out-do it in the future.

    I love watching CFB. I love watching the Buffs. But, I have to agree with you. CFB is heading the same direction as the NFL...I stopped watching the NFL quite some time ago. When this much money is in play, eventually the money, and the pursuit of it, trumps everything else...

    I love football, but plowing that kind of money into a football facility really makes me kind of sick.... :huh:

    That's the truth and suppose Knight dies soon, how would that impact UO athletics?

    What is he leaves them a ton of money to form an athletic endowment.

    CFB isnt heading towards the NFL. It has already passed it and the NFL is now in its rear view mirror. Show me an NFL team with nicer facilities.

    "Meh" is just about right. So is ...Yaaawwwwwn! SRSLY, not that impressed. For one thing, its STILL located in Oregon, where folks don't tan they rust! Second, lots of open wasted space, very poorly designed---there's no architectural "there", there! It feels as if it was set up by a bunch of draftsmen using CAD, just to make it look noveau riche huge. Okay, it looks HUGE. Does anyone seriously feel any human scale or warmth in that facility? Seems pretty cold, stark and sterile to me.

    Guess it'll impress the yokels here and maybe some HS kids who place education and a certain "class", low on their list of priorities. So be it. They can still sign only 25 per and 85 total.

    One of the nice things about leaving the Big 12 is that we got away from schools that are caught up in the facilities arms race.

    We have one of those. The problem is, he wants to play just the tip. Just to see how it feels.
