Having spent time in Lincoln, Nebraska, the Huskers job is the toughest of the three schools to try to recruit you talented, urban athletes.

The Oregon Ducks rise is can be attributed to a combination of a series of very good and innovative football coaches blended with Phil Knight's remarkable financial contributions. Phil Knight's level of donations to the University of Oregon truly has been a "game changer" for the Ducks (pardon the pun). He has donated nearly $2 billion to the university and its affiliated Oregon Health & Science center.

Phil Knight started by donating $100 million in 2007 to the UO Athletics Legacy Fund, then in 2010 he helped construct the Matthew Knight Arena basketball facility that was followed by donating $68 million in 2013 for the 145,000 square-foot gridiron football facility and then $19 million in 2016 for the Marcus Mariota Sports Performance Center.

He has not limited his generosity to sports since he has donated over $1 billion to support university academic and scientific programs. It is hard to know how much Phil Knight and Nike have contributed to Oregon's rise in sports, but this influence clearly is at an unprecedented level not seen in college sports.

uniforms/helmet designs/ensembles sells the program. These days kids want flash.

In Devaney day, no one cared since their unis were caked with dirt anyway. Every bumpkin with the size to play OL wanted to play for Nebraska. Plug in a handful of power backs and a QB who can run the option and you could win a few national championships in the early 70s.
