In the 1990s, I thought more of Oregon State than Oregon. Belotti was there. Foundations were forming. Uncle Phil was working with his friend Michael to make some money.

What Oregon did didn't just come from money. When I arrived in Eugene for 3 years in '05, they had a Jake story (Joey Harrington) and fancy new buildings.

The story was that began Oregon's recruiting powerhouse. ASU has some money (thanks, Special Tax District!) and is building that recruiting-centered staff that Oregon did. I expect New Sun Devil Stadium to be full when it can, because one thing Oregon always had that we haven't in a long time is Autzen.
