...or get presale access via the alumni network :)

Eugene is going to be rocking harder than usual that weekend and I can’t wait!

Comment 25 Jan 2020

Creating a Buckeyes section depends on which of us Ducks choose to sell their tickets and if it happens to be in the same section :). I’d expect the secondary market to see a big markup - this is just as important to Ducks fans and Eugene will be buzzing.

There has been a lot offered in terms of things to do in Oregon in general, which is great, but if you want to limit it to Eugene here is a short list:

-Hike Spencer Butte

-Breweries (namely Oakshire and Ninkasi)

-Visit Pre’s Rock

-Visit Hayward Field

Very short list but I anticipate most of that weekend to be spent pre-gaming and enjoying the game.

Oh, do not park at the stadium as you will short change yourself the beautiful Walk to Autzen on game day. Basically, drink on 13th then head to the stadium from there.

Trouble is getting kids to Eugene because it’s relatively remote (although it’s not a tiny town). However, when you get there you quickly realize how special it is. I’m certain those traveling to the game next season will see that first hand.

Oregon will go as far as USC allows us. If USC has a great head coach and kept the top stars of CA home, it would be over.

This game also gave me some degree of closure. On to the off-season.

Comment 13 Jan 2020

Fuck Clemson. Fuck *ichigan. Fuck Texas. Fuck the SEC. Fuck ESPN.

Whew. That helped.

Comment 12 Jan 2020

My secondary sport is horse racing and it starts ramping up to the Kentucky Derby around this time which helps. Also, we get the Summer Olympics this year.

i don’t watch any other sports until it’s playoff time. Baseball live, at the ballpark, is fun every once in a while though.

Tyler Shough is the leader in the clubhouse. I’m partial to Cale Millen since he went to the local HS out here in Snoqualmie, WA but I don’t see him landing the job. In any case, the threats will be from RB and WR with Oregon. We will also have a Star-studded, albeit very young defense. If the Buckeyes OL is good, I don’t know how close UO can keep it.

Of course! I'm going to do a forum post as we get closer to the game - but I'll give you the scoop now :)

Hotels (I'm going to give you both Eugene and Portland since Eugene is tightly booked right now):

Eugene:

-Phoenix Inn or Best Western. If you like bed & breakfast I would snag a room at C'est La Vie Inn (very nice and decent location). Otherwise, whatever you can grab.

Portland:

-Anywhere. Just like all major cities, but if you want to spend big $$$ go for The Nines Portland. Very trendy and upscale. However, you really can't go wrong in Portland if you stay in or near the Pearl District. 

Eugene Restaurants:

-Falling Sky Delicatessen (there are three Falling Sky locations, but the Delicatessen has the best food).

-Track Town Pizza

-Elk Horn Brewing (decent food, not the best beer in my opinion)

-Killer Burger

-The Original Pancake House

-Glenwood

Beer/Drinks:

-For breweries, I highly suggest Oakshire Brewing followed by Ninkasi then Hop Valley. Oakshire is soooo goooood.

-Bar wise? Well, Taylors is the historic party location so I recommend that. Otherwise, Max's Tavern (inspiration for Mo's on The Simpsons) and Webfoot are a bit more low-key but really good.

Hope this helps!

I have no doubt you will enjoy your time at the game and in the area. Eugene is a special place and Autzen, although half the size of the Shoe in capscity, is a wonderful place to watch football.
