ON, Wisconsin! .....? :noclue:



I finally had it with O........
Alumni and been a fan for 35 years.
Didn't watch one game this season, or last......

last straw- completely ripped clean the last heart string. :wavesad:

So what happened Mockbee you didn't make it sound clear
Well, it's a long story and has some complexities to it... not related to football.

Anyways Phil Knight/Nike, may be Oregon to the core but last year he bulldozed the last physical vestige of what I still thought of as purely Oregon athletics.
This is so they can plant a spaceship of a coliseum that will be used once in 2021 for the World Track Championships and, otherwise will be empty.... Olympic syndrome...
Hayward Field was the Fenway Park of track. The field still pulsed Prefontaine, even though he died 45 years ago. It's a disgrace.........

The football was great through Helfrich, after Chip took off, then Phil wanted to be an SEC team and fired every staff member that had any Oregon roots.... I'm just not interested in being an SEC team. Beat em as an Oregon team or go home.......

Other stuff too, the corporate crap really bothers me, can't get over it........

:tiphat:
Aw man. I stayed my first year at Oregon at the dorm right across from that field. Was aware of it's history. Used to run up it's steps in an attempt to get better hops in basketball. I had a job at the last bar Pre was at before he crashed and died. Crazy. I saw picture from a friend recently from campus. I didn't even recognize it at all. Kind of sad the transition to U of Nike is finally complete. I miss our old Bball court too. Nothing ever like it in all of sports.
