TEAMS: Oregon Ducks
We’re all aware that Nike founder Phil Knight is an avid Oregon Ducks supporter, so much so that the Ducks always debut some of the sickest uniforms all provided by Nike. According to CBS Sports, Knight may have decided to switch sides on the same weekend that the Ducks watch their national title hopes fall by the wayside after losing to the Stanford Cardinals. At the LSU/Alabama game last night Knight was seen parading on the sidelines fully dressed in Alabama gear. Great night at Bryant Denny. @MitchGaspard and I w/Mr. Nike, Phil Knight. Thanks for what you do for @UA_Athletics! pic.twitter.com/7oAimURStH — Patrick Murphy (@UACoachMurphy) November 10, 2013 The funniest part of this is that he’s the founder of Nike so who’s really going to call him out? Definitely not Oregon. They like the perks.
