Oregon's New $68M Football Center Lauded As One Of Best In America
Published August 1, 2013
GET A LEG UP: ESPN's Tony Kornheiser noted the football facility is "really something because of the advantage in recruiting it gives to Oregon." He noted the coach's office has a hot tub and the building has its own barber shop. ESPN's Michael Wilbon said the facility is "an advantage immediately, but every school is building something" ("PTI," ESPN, 7/31). Meanwhile, ESPN's Bomani Jones said UO can build this facility "when you don’t pay the players." Jones: "They're like, 'Hey, if we have to pay the players how are we ever going to pay for this pool table?' Trust me, the kids would rather have the cash. Your fancy building is great … (but) give the boys that money in cash" ("Around The Horn," ESPN, 7/31).
