With schools jumping ship from the Pac-12 to the Big Ten, Phil Knight is digging into his phone contacts to get Oregon a place to go. According to Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports, Nike's co-found has lowered to even "working the phones"...
quote:

"The true impact of this latest round of conference realignment is the image of one of the world's most powerful sports figures 'working the phones.' That's how one source this week described Phil Knight's level of desperation," said Dodd, via CBS Sports.

They will fit right in the SWAC with their uniforms.

These comments are hilarious. So many high and mighty types that think so highly of themselves, thier beliefs, and their fandoms. Too many still think their way is the only way. Many of you are so narrow minded on everything.

Oregon is absolutely nothing without Nike and Phil Knight. The state doesn't care about football, their students don't care about football, and their alumni outside of Phil Knight don't care about football.

Have you ever watched an Oregon game? They pack Autzen and travel very well. Brought a great crowd for the LSU game in Jerry world, and when I went to their game against Moo St in Starkville they sold out their entire away allotment and were sprinkled in all over that stadium.

Their stadium capacity is only 54,000.

In Oregons defense, they filled their stadium even when they sucked

Phil Knight dresses like a typical trash with a squatted truck.

This isnt Phil Knight. Its Billy Bob Thornton or Neil Young as Phil Knight.

Phil, call your ChiCom buddy, Xi Jinping, who provides Nike with slave labor. He'll get Oregon in a Chinese conference and you'll still be "Pacific". (Caution: avoid any league that has Wuhan U. in it.)

Phil is looking more like Phyllis. Is he on the same diet as Jenner?

Nobody is gonna want money bags in their conference with NIL. It’s why he’s working the phones and being called. Also it’s Oregon. Yea, some success but doesn’t draw like usc does.

Historically, very little success. Weak, weak schedule but colorful uniforms.

Could be a big plus for the BIG12. They already have schools up in that general region. Sadly CFB is an after thought for me nowadays.

Yep, it's sad what its become just in the last 3 years. And only going to get worse. Fan bases are going to die off.

They need to be sucked into the Ocean with California and Washington. What a useless waste of land.

Oregon is not all Portland. Get real.
