A $27 donation for a 27-point victory: Will you match it?

Who would have guessed it’d be by 27 points Saturday night — in OUR favor. I gave us 10 at the most.

This is worth celebrating in a way to give thanks to the team and the U of O as a whole.

We won by 27 points. I am mailing the University a check for $27, a dollar a point, made out to the University of Oregon Foundation. I wonder if a few thousand other people would like to join me in this to benefit Oregon’s athletic and academic programs. That would make us a double winner.

As for this coming Saturday at Stanford, I’ll be wearing the green T-shirt and a red jacket. I’m originally from Portland and was headed for UO when Stanford popped on the scene. So I have loyalties to both schools and have supported them financially. I’ll be rooting for both teams, but I have this deep-down feeling that Oregon should win all the rest of its games this season. Go Ducks!
