I wish Cal had it's own version of a poor man's Phil Knight sometimes. The Haas family has been sort of big donor, but not to the degree of Phil Knight.
Not really an unusual ped---I have two and no ped probs. Asics, Merrill, Lowa, and Vasque seem to work best. NB is excellent, but only an OK fit. But never found Nike or Adidas a good fit---nor Puma.
PK is "over the top" or "meddling" to some outside observers, and "cutting edge" to others. He is also supportive to OSu and other Oregon schools and things "Oregon" generally.
The episodes @ UO since New Years' Rose loss to the Buckeyes became distractions that were not handled particularly well by Coach Chip, AD Bellotti, nor by the image conscious UO Prez---IMO.
Good Coach Ernie, as you know, had a considerable UO history as player, coach, and member of the community. BUT it's all about business, winning, and what have you done for me lately. When the Ducks floundered through a second straight "rebuilding" season---yada-yada. Maybe a few folks took some of their post-FB season related frustrations out on the hoops guys?
Have a great day.
