The University of Oregon Ducks have dominated the plush green landscapes of the Pacific Northwest in recent years. With private endowments coming from Phil Knight of Nike, the Ducks present free agent coaches plenty of incentives to build a dynasty under the rooftops of the nation’s top facilities.
Nike has influenced the appeal of the University of Oregon, creating a tradition rich program where there used to be nothing of the sort. Players who wish to dawn the forest green and yellow will be training with the best training staffs while sporting the latest gear and technology that the athletics company has to offer, at least presumably given the new NCAA Football dynasty program ratings.
The Ducks have progressed the game of college football (and even the NFL) through their no-huddle oriented schemes. They are a pillar for the sport in the Pacific Northwest and so the recruiting pool will be all yours. Eugene is an intriguing location to build your empire. The unlimited resources, major sponsorships, and a rabid fan base to fill your stadium that seats 60,000 and reaches 120 decibels; it all combines to create the ultimate home-field advantage.
The Rose Bowl Champions are reloaded and ready to strike with two quality underclassman athletes at quarterback on the roster in Marcus Mariota and Bryan Bennett still battling for depth chart supremacy. Kenjon Barner anchors the Ducks backfield and should be assuming the role of the recently departed LaMichael James. Build this team's defense and National Championship aspirations will be realistic, year in and year out.
