    Simple as that. As long as they don't hire from in house or for some reasons there are serious sanctions... we will be fine.

    Hard to find more than a handful of teams with more success than Oregon since 2000.

    I thought that too, but our basketball program couldn't get anybody good when Kent was fired.

    I know our football program is light years ahead of basketball, but I'm still keeping my hopes tempered until we actually sign someone good.

    The basketball program is nowhere near where the football program is prestige wise

    To be fair Oregon isn't that good at bball... But Altman has done a good job imo.

    I'd say Ducks bball was very entertaining and competitive when they had the two Lukes and Freddie, or Aaron Brooks, Bryce Taylor, Malik Hairston etc.
