    No I'm a duck fan went to U of O during the awesome Chip seasons. I was just saying you can see the influence of the Nike money with these NIL nowadays.

    As a Duck fan, you realize Nike's influence has been a huge part of the program for 25+ years now.

    No doubt NIL is playing a role in the talent coming in, but Oregon has had a massive shift in the type of recruiters their head coaches are since they got Mario. Many people who cover recruiting often point out the amount of work/attention the program is giving recruits in comparison to other programs.

    geeezuzzz....sorry man...didn't mean to stain you with the beeevur label...:)

    actually, other than uniforms, Nike hasn't invested substantially in Oregon. They do have a symbiotic relationship in terms of branding but it doesn't extend much further than that. It has been mostly Phil Knight. He's a billionaire and an alum. But a lot of schools like USC , Texas, Ohio State, Michigan, LSU have many many more wealthy alums than Oregon. Their graduating classes have been double and triple the size for decades as well

    I didn't take it as a diss... just an overly-simplistic way of attributing the cause of Oregon's recent recruiting success.

    That and the fact that NIL money was only approved in June of 2021 and the stats above were from 2104. And you are dead on about the coaches.
    Most schools have NIL money now, but the difference in recruiting still comes down to coaches. Helf' became HC when the program had a lot of momentum but his recruiting did not sustain it.

    sometimes, all that matters is getting hot at the right time. Ducks have won 8 in a row, including 4-0 in the Pac-12 tournament

    or like Miami outscoring Denver 29-10 in the first 7 minutes of the 4th Q

    Ducks hosting a super regional. Who would have thought that 2 weeks ago?

    Oregon and Oral Roberts will meet at PK Park starting June 9th/10th.

    Edit: Looks like the home game is not official yet.

    might be a scheduling conflict with the Eugene Emeralds?

    Could be a factor, but I think they don't officially announce any of them until tomorrow.

    Congrats to the Ducks. If they get to Omaha I think I’ll be sick.
