Oregon fulPhils expectations with its new football building . . .

Oregon opened its new football operations building to photographers this week, and it’s, well, a lot of things, among them a monument to itself and a showplace guaranteed to turn the heads of recruits.

The Eugene Register-Guard’s Paul Carter was among photographers inside the new digs, which, of course, were financed by Nike czar Phil Knight. Here’s a link to Carter’s slideshow.

I was in Eugene Monday but not in the new building. As you drive east on Martin Luther King way (from downtown) toward Autzen Stadium, the facility adjoins Autzen, just to the northwest, big and forbidding with tinted dark glass. It’s hardly a warm-looking structure, but inside, as the photos show, it appears to have every accessory that would raise a prospect’s eye — and no doubt, get academicians to wondering about the proper place of athletics in a university.
