The Oregon Ducks’ New High-Tech $19 Million Sports Performance Center Is Freaking Incredible
Do a quick search of Google with the question, “Have the Oregon Ducks ever won a national championship?” and you get this response…
The Oregon Ducks have never won a national championship in the 100 years that the university has fielded a football team.
And yet, because Nike co-founder Phil Knight went there they get ALL the cool shit.
Included in that cool shit is a brand spanking new $19 million, super high-tech sports performance center named after Marcus Mariota.
That’s right, it’s called the Marcus Mariota Sports Performance Center, because who else would they name it after?
There is even a shrine to Mariota right there in front with a video screen that rolls highlights of the Heisman winner.
This place is 30,000 square feet of amazing — complete with sleep pods, a gym with field turf, a motion capture camera area, a boxing ring, and a whole bunch of other ridiculously state-of-the-art things.
Almost makes the fact that they are 0 for 100 when it comes to winning a national championship not seem so important.
