Last season the rivalry between the Oregon Ducks and the Washington Huskies became even more heated when the Washington Athletic Director insulted the Oregon Ducks while attending last years game at Autzen Stadium in Eugene. Here is my post from last year outlining the insult and it's repercussions:
Want to know why I hate the Huskies so much..... well their Athletic Director just gave us another reason that will last long after this season is over. He was interviewed on Husky Radio at the game at Autzen Stadium in Eugene and this is what he said:
Mahler to Woodward:
“What do you make of this place? When you come down here, you see the new baseball field, you see the brand new turf, you see the atmosphere. And don’t know if motivation is the word but obviously this is kind of where Washington wants to be, ranked #1 in the country and have all eyes on them.”
“Sure, it’s not really where we want to be Softy, because it’s an embarrassment what their academic institution is, and what’s happened to them as far as their state funding has gone. In my mind it’s a wonderful athletic facility but they’ve watched it at the expense of the university go really down.
“The athletic facility is impressive. The fans at Oregon should get down on their hands and knees at night to Phil Knight and pray to him because this is an incredible facility he’s built.“
He tried to clarify the statement today but it didn't work. The man is a clear example of an arrogant Husky JERK that we have known for way too long.
Oregon beat his team 53 to 16
After a very weak "if I offended anyone" type apology yesterday the Washington AD Scott Woodward was ORDERED by the University of Washington President to PERSONALLY apologise to the Oregon AD and the Oregon President for his comments.
Last week a sports reporter for the Oregonian wrote that the rivalry between Oregon and Washington was for old timers like me. Well, thanks to Mr Woodward I think we can keep it going for another 50 years. The old grudge about the 1948 Rose Bowl was getting a little old anyway. I really HATE those guys!
Go Ducks .... win the Day beat the Huskies.
