Ducks beat Cardinal by 377 feet!

11/7/2013: We spend 15% of our budget on the jocks, Stanford spends 2%. Altitude thanks to an anon commenter. First inning starts at 6PM, I think they play a full 18 holes.

Meanwhile back in Eugene, a professor from UO’s law school, and chair of the Senate committee charged with faculty oversight of the Duck athletic department, and a potential replacement for Jim O’Fallon as UO Faculty Athletics Representative to the NCAA, lectures his students:

Thanks, I guess, to an anonymous commenter for sending this in.

    Great comments, honest Uncle B.

    Yeah, “if we lose sight of the football bench”, then where are we? On the ground crying our eyes out, or conversely, detached from the game and engaged with the groupies a la the NFL. You forgot to mention the coach who game planned around a QB injury, that he denies, while putting more emphasis on the QB to perform one-dimensionally. And HE gets paid MILLIONS for this. Oy.

    “Nike U, where priorities and perspective collide, creating more than unintended consequences. Oops!”

    Seriously, we should get back to serious matters here at UOMatters.

    And seriously, there is trouble with UO football. The high water mark may have been against Auburn back in the 2010 season. Or maybe even back in the Joey Harrington days. Back when the athletic department under the seriously missed Bill Moos actually asked for UO senate input on matters like the Autzen renovation!

    The Ducks now have a pretty good pattern of blowing the big ones. Are they perhaps too pampered for their own good? Are these flashy uniforms a symptom of a deeper pathology at good old Nike U?

    Last night, those Stanford guys with their plain uniforms and good honest brutish lines looked like the working class guys! While our Ducks played like pansies until it was too late.

    These are foremost uregent matters for the new UO Board. I hope UOMatters cc’s this memo to Pres. Gottfredson, so he can issue an addendum to his “benchmarks” document.

    After all, if we lose sight of the football bench, what hope is there for Nike U?

    Enough of this faculty salary bullshit!

    This cost of living comparer:

    http://www.bestplaces.net/cost-of-living/eugene-or/palo-alto-ca/110900

    says “A salary of $110,900 in Eugene, Oregon should increase to $321,081 in Palo Alto, California”

    i.e. an average UO full professor salary.

    I wonder if Stanford grants above-Tier 1-level pension benefits to help compensate?

    Of course, maybe they have a housing allowance to make up for the 819 vs. 129 housing index in Palo Alto vs. Eugene!

    But on the face of it, those Stanford profs are awfully underpaid!

    Maybe Stanford U. counts on all the Nobel prize money to make their faculty lives bearable.

    By the way, where is the Nobel Prize comparator on UOMatters, now that UO is no longer the football powerhouse it once was?

    And how does Stanford stack up against UO in SAT scores? Maybe that’s why Stanford profs are so underpaid!

    A UO professor having fun with his students? Stop the madness!

    Also I am deeply offended that UO professors are not compensated as well as Stanford professors. I mean that’s basically an apples to apples comparison, right?

      For $4000 in tuition the prof should at least write some shit on the whiteboard.

      Right?! Whiteboard scribbling is the true measuring post of being a great professor!

      I hear Stanford professors scrawl even less than their UO comparators, which makes the salary differences only more egregious and insulting.

      No wonder the UO Law School is so highly rated!

    Correct–first inning starts at 6 PM and they may only play to the 7th inning stretch if Ducks are way ahead. ;)
