How much is their contract worth?? And you're saying it is those dollars exactly that proves they're a top 10 program .... even though they have a 50k stadium, and are a smallish school (relative to some in P5), in a smallish state (that has two flagships), with a fanbase that I'm guessing is similarly sized?
Minnesota gets how many millions from the Big Ten, more than Oregon gets from the PAC?? That more than offsets whatever their Nike deal is worth.
I don't think you understand the discussion here.
You’re making a rationale argument in an irrational situation. It’s not just the money poured into the program. Oregon is a testing lab for Nike. They see things first. It’s very cool, to the kids as many people like to say. If your into Nike and think of them more than poor quality, sweatshop driven, carpet-bagging company, which many recruits do, there is appeal to being at Oregon.
