GOOD NEWS... The "O" Stays!

A University of Oregon Professor has withdrawn her appeal of a city decision allowing the University of Oregon to place a large “O” on the south side of Autzen Stadium without first meeting government requirements. The O is eight times larger than the city zoning rules allow.

"O”! Say can you see from the Fairmount Hills
What so proudly we hailed at each fall football game.
Whose broad “O”and Yell “O”w through the replay of “The Pick”,
“O”er the back deck we watched was so gallantly shining.
And the roar of the crowd, the football bombs throwing in air,
Gave proof through the game that our Ducks was still there.
“O”! say does that “O” still stand high on Autzen
“O”er the land of the green and Yell”O”w and the home of the Ducks?

Thanks Professor.
