Trustees to give Phil Knight an honorary UO degree, then watch football game

Around the O has the news here, with some other stuff about the upcoming UO Board of Trustees meetings which will be held in Portland Sept 6-8. UO faculty aren’t on contract until Sept 15th. Classes don’t start until Sept 24. But hey –  there’s a home football game on the 9th, hence the timing.

I’ll post the traditional user friendly guide to the BOT agenda in a few days.

    Of mild interest, given the Nike/UO connection. Given the controversial call, my guess is that Knight personally approved this.

      I’m sure they can cite many millions of reasons to so honor the man who sold Bowerman’s shoes.
