Photo: Nike Chairman Phil Knight Wears Alabama Gear On Sideline

Ouch, Oregon fans.

There's never been a better time for the phrase "adding insult to injury." Oregon fans just experienced another heartbreaking loss to Stanford, effectively ending their hopes of a shot at the BCS National Championship Game. Two days later, Nike Chairman Phil Knight (Oregon's biggest benefactor) is taking pictures wearing Alabama gear - on Alabama's sideline, at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Ouch.

Of course, Knight's company has contracts with hundreds of college/profressional teams, the Tide being one of them. But the timing here is sure to make Ducks fans sick.
