that, combined with the fact that every year the senior class of students wants a chance to rush the field.

My senior year was 2011, we rushed the field for the Wisconsin game that put us at 5-3 on the season and 2-2 in the B1G. Not exactly a traditional field rushing game.

Are fans really going to be rushing the field after MSU or Illinois this year? Probably not. There's one game a year where people rush the field, and this was it. It has nothing to do with them being a rival or not, this was easily our biggest home win of the year, and will be for the rest of the season.

Not to mention, everyone in the stadium had to go through security, and to equate the Shoe to a place like LA and specifically Dodgers games, where gang members are historically known to attend, is borderline fearmongering.

I am sure a kid or two in recruiting has picked Oregon over other programs because of them

I highly doubt that kids make their college choice purely based on the uniforms, but you have to imagine that it gets the kids interested enough to take a look and consider UO in the first place. That's what these uniforms are about: first impressions.

Did Oregon do all those other things you mentioned, and those things likely had a bigger role in their recruiting and on-field success? Sure. But getting those kids interested enough to consider them in the first place is a big deal, and the uniforms probably helped with that to some extent.

I have to laugh at the idea of glorifying the "1 and done's"....while vilifying people like Calipari who make their living at it.

As they say... don't hate the player, hate the game. I don't have a problem with Calipari playing within the rules and regulations set forth, but I do think the NCAA needs to change the "one and done" rule, among others.

That could (and should, in my opinion) happen with Europe and also the NBADL. I love going to minor league baseball games, especially having lived in smaller cities that don't have MLB teams. I think it would be awesome if the NBA had something similar with the D League.

Seriously, I've seen guys at games in September in 100 degree, 95% humidity heat in their blazers, button ups with bow ties, and khakis.  All I can think about is how I would be soaked in sweat if I wore that.

On the other hand, I am a huge fan of the ladies in the sundresses.

If OSU cared about tickets being sold on the secondary market, they could very easily implement measures to mitigate that. They choose not to for a variety of reasons.
