Alabama fans turn Oregon’s ‘We Want Bama’ shirts into ‘We Forgot Stanford’


Many Oregon fans can still feel the sting from their 22-19 loss to Auburn in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game. It is widely assumed that Alabama will be back in the national championship game again this season, so Ducks fans have been walking around this year wearing shirts that read “We Want Bama” across the front of them. Yeah, about that.

Oregon’s chance of facing Bama — or any other team — in the BCS National Championship Game all but evaporated on Thursday night when they lost to Stanford. As if the loss didn’t sting enough, CBS Birmingham’s Jim Dunaway shared a photo of the new shirts Bama fans are selling to remind the Ducks that they should not have overlooked Stanford.

“We Forgot Stanford,” the shirt reads.

That pretty much covers it. Maybe Stanford was simply the better team. Maybe the Ducks overlooked their opposition. If the latter is true, shame on them.

Oregon Pit Crew Shoes Are Sick (Pictures)

The Nike perks for attending the University of Oregon are not limited to athletes. This year, 500 limited edition shoes were made by Nike for students who are members of the “Pit Crew.” The Pit Crew is the nickname for the student section at the school’s basketball games, and apparently students will have to earn the shoes with their dedication.

10 pairs of the Air Jordan 3 Pit Crew were raffled off Friday night, and one pair is being auctioned on ebay. Here’s a look at these bad boys:

There has to be a recruiting violation in there somewhere. I can imagine students applying to the school just to get those nice kicks.
