Never has the University of Oregon been known as a hot bed for athletes or a prime time destination for top recruits, but somehow, someway, athletics at the University of Oregon are at an all time high.
Oregon Football has now been to four straight BCS games (winning the last two) and is now considered one of the very few elite programs in all of college football. There’s not much you can say about track other than the fact that no other college in the country compares. We are about to ink the #1 recruiting class in track for both men and women. Our women’s volleyball team went to the National Title Game this past year and was ranked in the top-10 all season long. Our baseball and softball teams just started their seasons ranked 15th and 7th respectively in the nation. Oh, and lets not forget the turnaround our men’s basketball team is having this year. They are currently ranked #23 and are projected to be a #6 seed in the NCAA Tournament. It would be our first tournament berth since 2007.
As you can see, Oregon sports (both men’s and women’s) are at an all time high. Thanks to a solid athletic director, good coaching, great funding, and state of the art facilities that blow recruits’ minds, we have become one of the country’s top athletic schools. Oregon sports are here to stay, so we say thank you to our loyal fan base and to the one and only Phil Knight.
