About 100 journalists got a tour of Oregon’s new football training facility and more than a few jaws likely dropped along the way. Drool, too. At least one, Bob Welch of the Eugene Register-Guard, was struck by the extravagance and was willing to ask: Really? Is this necessary? And, more to the point, what happens when these college kids have to leave the Taj Mahal of college digs and re-enter the real world?
I can hear the phone call now: “Security, we have another fifth-year senior who won’t leave. Please send someone up.”
Here’s Welch’s column on the Ducks’ shrine. By the way, he’s a UO grad.
