The Oregon football program, which has morphed from Pac-12 also-ran into one of the most powerful in the nation, owes much of its success to Phil Knight and Nike. The Ducks debut a number of fancy new uniforms every season and are constantly upgrading their state-of-the-art facilities. In 2013, Oregon unveiled a brand new $68 million football facility which takes up 145,000 square feet of the school's campus. As you'd imagine, it's breathtaking.
Today, at Pac-12 Media Days, Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez poked a little bit of fun at the Ducks. When asked about the facility upgrades, RichRod joked that Oregon changes them out "like port-a-potties" every few years.

It's safe to say that any coach, including Rich Rodriguez, would love to be in the situation Oregon finds itself in.
The Ducks have accomplished a great deal over the past decade, but they still chase the one thing that has eluded them - a national title. If that happens, you won't find many people joking about moves the program makes.
