The Oregon House

The UOregon blog informs us that the university adopted its first nickname, Webfeet, as an embrace of an insult to the people who live in the wet, waterlogged Willamette Valley. That spirit remains alive today in Eugene, where “it never rains at Autzen Stadium.”

Modern Notre Dame getaway

IN Rudy, the film commemorating Notre Dame football walk-on Rudy Ruettiger, we see Notre Dame teammates leaving a legendary stairwell with their hands raised to slam the “Play Like a Champion Today” sign in the early 1970s. This is completely historically inaccurate. Instead, the poster was installed by coach Lou Holtz in 1986 to recreate the energy and legacy of Irish football. The motivation sign still marks one of the country’s most significant football traditions.
