Pac-12 Football Championship Game (2011)

Autzen Stadium is an outdoor football stadium in Eugene, Oregon, United States. Located north of the University of Oregon campus, it is the home field of the Oregon Ducks of the Pacific-12 Conference. Opened in 1967, the stadium has undergone several expansions. The official capacity is 54,000, although attendance is routinely around 59,000 and has exceeded capacity for every game since the most recent expansion in 2002.[4]

History[edit]

Prior to 1967, the Ducks typically played only three games a year on campus at Hayward Field; the higher-attended games (against schools like Washington and USC) were played 110 miles (180 km) north in Portland at the larger Multnomah Stadium. With the recognition that the football team had outgrown the campus facility and with popular support to bring all the home games to Eugene, Oregon athletic director Leo Harris led a campaign to build a new stadium on 90 acres (0.36 km2) that the school had acquired for the purpose in the 1950s on his recommendation.[5][6][7]

The stadium, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, was built within an artificial landfill (over the refuse) to eliminate the need for multilevel ramps. As a result, construction took just nine months and cost approximately $2.5 million. Two hundred and fifty thousand dollars was contributed by the Autzen Foundation, headed by the son of Portland lumberman and philanthropist Thomas J. Autzen, for whom the stadium was named.[8] Ironically, Thomas J. Autzen is actually an alumnus of archrival Oregon State University. The foundation's donation to the University of Oregon was linked to his son's attendance at the school during the late 1930s and early 1940s.

On September 23, 1967, Oregon hosted Colorado in the first game played at Autzen Stadium, a 17-13 loss. Oregon won their first game in the new facility on October 21 over Idaho 31–6 in their only home victory of the season. The facility opened with a natural-grass playing field; artificial turf was installed for its third season in 1969.

The stadium alternates with Reser Stadium at Oregon State as host of the Civil War, the annual rivalry game.

Autzen hosted the inaugural Pac-12 Conference Championship game on December 2, 2011, as the Pac-12 North champion Ducks defeated the Pac-12 South champion UCLA Bruins.

Renovations[edit]

The new digital score board in the east end-zone of Autzen Stadium

In 1981, a $650,000 meeting room complex, the Donald Barker Stadium Club, was constructed on the east rim above the end zone. The addition gave the stadium its first meeting facilities.[4]

In 1988, a $2.3 million renovation built a new press box on the south side of the stadium and converted the original north side press box to luxury suites. The renovation was designed by architecture firm Ellerbe Becket.[4]

In 1995, the field was named Rich Brooks Field, after the Ducks' coach from 1977 to 1994. Brooks led Oregon to its first outright Pac-10 championship, and its first Rose Bowl appearance in 37 years, in his last season. Brooks left Oregon after the 1994 season to become head coach of the St. Louis Rams of the National Football League.

In 2002, a $90 million facelift and expansion added seating and luxury boxes to the south sideline, bringing the stadium seating capacity up to its current level.[4]

In 2007, the large yellow "O" was added onto the south end of the stadium exterior when ESPN's College GameDay was on location. That season, "Gameday" originated two of its Saturday shows from Eugene.

In 2008, a new, 33-by-85-foot high-definition LED scoreboard and replay screen—known as DuckVision or "Duckvision 2.0"—was installed; it replaced the original video screen installed prior to the 1998–1999 football season. It is the 32nd largest video screen in the NCAA.

In 2010, the field was replaced with new FieldTurf that featured the new Pac-12 logo (even before the logo was officially revealed to the public). During the process, the crown was removed to make the field flat. In addition, new paneling was added to the walls surrounding the field.[citation needed]

In 2014, the east end-zone scoreboard was updated to include a digital screen, the addition of 150 flat screen monitors throughout the concessions areas, additional culinary options in the form of food trucks on the north side of the stadium, increased cell phone repeaters and an upgrade to the sound system. Additionally the sideline wall graphics were updated from the new panels installed in the 2010 season.[9]

Stadium records[edit]

The Oregon Ducks take the field for the 2007 USC game in front of 59,277 fans, tied for the ninth largest crowd ever at Autzen.

The Ducks have a current streak of 101 straight sellouts at Autzen Stadium, dating back to the 1999 season. The highest attendance at Autzen was 60,055 on October 15, 2011, when the Ducks beat the Arizona State Sun Devils, 41-27.[10] This stands as the largest crowd for a sporting event in the state of Oregon.

From 1997 to 2001, the Ducks had a 23-game home winning streak at Autzen Stadium. The streak ended with a 49–42 loss to Stanford.[4] In 2011, the USC Trojans defeated the Ducks 38-35, ending a 21-game home winning streak as the Trojans handed Chip Kelly his first loss at Autzen as Oregon's head coach.

Sellout Conference Championship Game Attendance Record 1 - Thursday Night Game 2 - Friday Night Game

Location and configuration[edit]

Autzen Stadium as seen from the summit of Spencer Butte.

The stadium is located just north of the Willamette River, next to Alton Baker Park. Students typically walk to the stadium from the University of Oregon campus over the Autzen Footbridge, which passes over the Willamette, then through Alton Baker Park. The FieldTurf playing field is at an elevation of 420 feet (130 m) above sea level and is laid out in a non-traditional east-west orientation, slightly skewed so that players will not have the sun shining in their eyes in late fall.

Crowd noise[edit]

Autzen is known for its crowd noise. Due to the stadium's relatively small footprint, the fans are very close to the action, and the field is sunken. These factors contribute to the loudness of the stadium even though it is smaller than other 'noise comparable' stadiums.[22] According to many in the Pac-12, it was actually even louder prior to the most recent expansion because the noise reverberated all the way up the stadium and bounced back down to the field—the so-called "Autzen bounce." Oregon officials say that any future expansions will trap more noise.[23]

On October 27, 2007, during a 24–17 victory against the USC Trojans, a then-record crowd of 59,277 fans was recorded at 127.2 decibels. A similarly loud 31–27 upset of third-ranked Michigan in 2003 prompted a Michigan Daily columnist to write[24]

Michigan coach Lloyd Carr later said that Autzen Stadium was the loudest stadium he'd ever been in.[25]

A view of the field during the 2007 USC game. The new press box on the south side, built in 2002, is visible to the left

In 2006, a Sporting News columnist named Autzen the most intimidating college football stadium in the nation.[26]

Lee Corso of ESPN College Gameday frequently says, "Per person Autzen Stadium is the loudest stadium that I have ever been in my entire life!"[27]

Longtime ABC sportscaster Keith Jackson called Autzen "Per square yard, the loudest stadium in the history of the planet."[23]

Jahvid Best, a former starting running back for the Detroit Lions, visited Autzen while playing for the California Golden Bears in 2007. He later said, "The biggest thing I remember about that game is the crowd. The crowd noise is crazy up there. Honestly, any other away game I don't really even hear the crowd. Oregon was the only place where it really got on my nerves."[28]

Following the September 6, 2014 game against the Michigan State Spartans, Michigan sports reporter Mike Griffin of MLive.com accused Oregon of piping in artificial noise that contributed to the Ducks' victory over the Spartans. [29]

Traditions[edit]

Since 1990, Don Essig, the stadium's PA announcer since 1968, has declared that "It never rains at Autzen Stadium" before each home game as the crowd chants along in unison. He often prefaces it with the local weather forecast, which quite often includes some chance of showers, but reminds fans that "we know the real forecast..." or "let's tell our friends from (visiting team name) the real forecast..." If rain is actually falling before the game, Essig will often dismiss it as "a light drizzle," or "liquid sunshine" but not actual rain by Oregon standards.[30] Also, because of the use of Autzen Stadium and the University of Oregon campus in National Lampoon's Animal House, the toga party scene of the movie featuring the song "Shout" is played at the end of the third quarter, with the crowd dancing to the song.

Prior to the football team taking the field, a highlight video of previous games is shown on the jumbotron, nicknamed "Duckvision". The last highlight on the clip is almost always Kenny Wheaton's game-clinching 97-yard interception return for a touchdown against the Washington Huskies in 1994. "The Pick" is often seen as the turning point for Oregon football, which went on to the Rose Bowl that year and have enjoyed success for the most part ever since after years of losing records.

After the video, the team takes the field behind a motorcycle with the Oregon Duck riding on back to the strains of Mighty Oregon. This is followed by the north side of the stadium chanting "GO" with the south side chanting "DUCKS!".

After every Duck score and win, a foghorn blares. In addition, the Oregon Duck mascot does as many pushups as Oregon has points at that time.

ESPN College Gameday[edit]

ESPN's College GameDay program has come to Eugene for games played in Autzen Stadium six straight years, from 2009 through 2014, the most of any other school. Overall, Gameday has made nine visits to Oregon, and the Ducks have been a part of nineteen Gameday broadcasts either at Autzen or as a visiting team.[31]

Other uses[edit]

Autzen Stadium is the largest sports arena in the state of Oregon. State high school football championship games were played at Autzen Stadium until 2006. Four Eugene high schools played their home football games in the stadium from 1969–2001.[citation needed] It also hosts football camps, coaches' clinics, marching band competitions, and musical concerts.

The Grateful Dead used the stadium as a tour stop ten times between 1978 and 1994,[32] including a 1987 show with Bob Dylan during which portion of their collaborative live album entitled Dylan & the Dead was recorded.

It was also used as the location for the fictional Faber College football stadium in the 1978 movie, National Lampoon's Animal House.

 I have known this person for over 30 years , BUT he says all he wants to do
is pay his admission and sit and watch sports, he really has no care who coaches or the
athletes who are on the team?
I agree with that, BUT here's the thing Oregon has a brand new woman's basketball coach
Kelly Graves who takes over for Paul Westhead who had in my view a terrible record/
lets view shall  we...65-90 overall record at Oregon since joining in 2009?
That in my view speaks for its self, again 65 wins and 90 loses?
I also saw last year in his final season , many photos from games where 5 fans seen
behind the baskets during games?
But Kent mutters and I know he does NOT understand the mechanics it takes to build a
winning program why?
All he wants to do is watch! Sure Kent wants to win BUT he wont complain if Oregon loses
He may but in reality he doesn't much care ,  I don't think he thinks that deep. 
Kent I don't think would ever blog why, I don't think he could, again not a  real deep thinker!
And he's not alone, I think all Kent wants  to do is play games on a  computer , he may look something up?
But I think He mostly loves doing is play games.
Last Year he bought a  standing room only ticket for $60 dollars, that for college football?
I wouldn't but if he does?
So be it,  Its his money not mine!  
I ask this question almost daily, do we still live in a free country?
The Freedoms to do what we want,  I also guess why 'for me" I no longer have a facebook page?
For me its a waste of my time, the why?
Again I had at one point 9 friends and only one would respond to most things I said?
Kent , said he is now on  face book, I cant see him on it why, He never sends any emails?
Sure he may get a  page but will he learn how to use it?
Knowing him ,NO .   Its so funny when he said he does email, then why doesn't he email ?
I have never got an email from him.  Or I cant recall he ever emailing our friend in LA?
Why I use an example of blowing smoke ,  or just talk!

First of all I look at sports as life, Good days , Bad days  as in the World series This year?
Last night the Giants were on the verge of a big world series celebration?\
And KC said ohh no your not! Then came out and blasted SF...10-zip?
See the fanatics cant understand this why?
They don't like to be reminded SPORTS IS JUST GAME at least in my view!
As I talked last night about games being fixed? 
I'm sorry again in my view  , If I was an athlete and was told to try to lose a game to
allow the playoffs to go more games?
Id tell the person stick up your HELLO>>>>>
Yes in dee dee money to burn , millions paid the athletes as well as the owners, But still isn't going
to change this bloggers mind its still just a game!
When an athlete makes an error /isn't that like us spilling coffee in real life?
You bet it is,   In my view!
My biggest beef with sports especially with College athletics is the high expectations we put
on young athletes?
Listen to the fanatics who sit and complain when what they should do is turn off the TV set?
I know I have sat and listened to this most of this college football season?
I ask the same fanatic , did you make mistakes when you played?
I again love my example of a supervisor Quality Controlling a janitor?
A fanatic like my nephew who thinks a coach should be fired?
SURE HE IS ENTITLED TO HIS OPINION BUT?
 When I see No experience with this young man ?
Then I think I would love seeing him as a defensive coordinator for Oregon?
I try not to be so Judgmental why?
I just said , Lets review this ?
Don Pellum is the coach I am talking about , and how many  years has Coach P been at Oregon?
Since 1993,   Pellum also played for the ducks 1980 /1984!
Some I call Mouths should NOT be so critical until they try their hand at coaching at a university Level?
My Buddy Ron brought up an interesting fact , A guy he knew as an ump would walk over to a person
Who has been yelling BLLEEEP the entire game and take off his mask and ask the Mouth would they like to
Umpire?
No response ....from Mr. Mouth?
Or lets try being the ref for a basketball game, Are you going to call everything?
And I mean everything, Gosh the game could   go on 4 ever?
Ever have one of those days in this  world   I   live ,    in   the real world???
Again a fanatic wont want to hear that!
In everyday Life don't we make mistakes or errors,  and then blame someone as some fans try blaming
the ref or umpire.   I think so!

 In the case of Oscar Taveras the young Saint Louis  ball players killed and died too young ?
This takes this blogger back to wonder about the many people I knew in the past that died?
In my graduating Class from high school we had about 8 die, out of a class of about 108?
One died of a drunk driving mishap , two from aids ,  hey you don't just die standing up?
I had just met Larry in high school the older brother of a guy I would later graduate with Randy,
anyway it was around 1966 when Larry was struck and killed by a car , he was about 14 years old?
I heard about another friends wife shot and killed a few years ago. Yes many die but why?
I guess only God knows why?

The Passing of Oscar Taveras

Sadly, St. Louis Cardinals prospect Oscar Taveras died from a car crash in the Dominican Republic, along with his girlfriend. Taveras' agent confirmed the reports. Taveras, an outfielder, was one of the, if not the best, prospects in baseball. This season, Taveras was playing in AAA with the Memphis Redbirds. He hit 0.318 with eight home runs and 49 RBI in 62 games. Taveras was called up to the majors on June 1st. In his second career at bat, Taveras recorded his first major league hit, a home run. Taveras did not preform as well as expected, and he was demoted on June 19th. He was promoted again on June 30th and stayed up for the entire season. He was on the postseason roster and helped out in the Cardinals moving onto the NLCS. Taveras was a key piece off the bench for the Cardinals and showed much potential for the future of St. Louis baseball and for all of Major League Baseball. Now, we have to deal with the death of Tavares, a player taken way too young, at the age of 22. My thoughts and prayers are with the Taveras family, the Cardinals organization, and all of the Cardinal fans.

Daylight Savings Time Ends This Weekend: Do We Really Need It?

Changing our clocks twice a year doesn't really save energy, for starters.

Published October 27, 2014

It's that time again: Across most of the United States, daylight savings time (DST) will end at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 2, when clocks will fall back to standard time.

Most American clocks will spring forward again in early 2015, when DST resumes on Sunday, March 8.

And, as in previous years, the approaching end of U.S. daylight savings time has sparked heated debate about the virtues of springing forward and falling back. (Related: "Time to Move On? The Case Against Daylight Saving Time.")

Take the population of Utah, a majority of whom would rather drop DST, according to a summer online opinion poll on the future of timekeeping in Utah, conducted by the Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED).

Sixty-seven percent of those surveyed want to ditch daylight savings time and adopt Mountain Standard Time year-round, as neighboring Arizona does.

"There are very strong voices on all sides of this question. We got close to 14,000 written comments, and if you add them together, they are are almost the length of War and Peace," said the GOED's Michael O'Malley.

"The strong, repetitive drumbeat in those comments was convenience," he explained. "Many people don't want to move their clocks, whether it's backwards, forwards, or sideways. They just want to pick a time and stick with it."

Initiatives to adopt, alter, or abolish daylight savings time certainly aren't anything new. In fact, a dozen or more are introduced in various state legislatures each and every year, said Tufts University professor Michael Downing, author of the 2009 book Spring Forward: The Annual Madness of Daylight Saving Time.

More Time to Play

Recently, though, the debate over DST seems to have changed in one significant way, Downing noted.

"As far as I'm aware, there is no longer much real reference to energy savings," he said. "That issue seems to have entirely dried up, and people seem to have figured out that this really isn't an energy-saving project." (Related: "Extended Daylight Saving Time Not an Energy Saver?")

For example, in Rocky Mountain Power's response to the Utah survey, the utility company stressed that temperature, not daylight, drives customer use of electricity.

The main argument for keeping DST these days, Downing said, is one of dollars and cents—the economic boons of extra evening daylight.

"The financial factor is dependent on the fact that we change—not just the availability of more light in the evening," he explained.

"The sudden change seems to alert people to the possibility of being outdoors, doing things, and spending money. That's what's always been the trigger."

For instance, in Utah, most government agencies and associations representing interest groups, such as golfers, favored DST in the summer survey, O'Malley said.

"We found that if you are involved in tourism and recreation, it's highly likely you want to retain the current system," O'Malley said. (How much energy do you use? Check out National Geographic's personal energy meter.)

"For example, the Golf Alliance for Utah estimated that dropping DST would reduce play by 6 percent during peak season, and cost Utah's economy $24 million each year, and they claim that is a very conservative estimate."

More Daylight Savings Time?

Across the nation, other groups offer similarly dire economic warnings.

"These are lobbies that are actively pursuing increasing the period of DST," Downing explained. (See "Permanent Daylight Saving Time? Might Boost Tourism, Efficiency.")

"The biggest one [in] the past few years has been the National Association of Convenience Stores, because 80 percent of our gasoline is bought in convenience stores, and when you give people in America more sunlight at the end of the day, we love to get into our cars and drive somewhere."

Several Utah legislators have vowed to introduce DST-related legislation in January.

It hasn't been determined what they'll propose, but O'Malley said the two most likely options would be a move to permanent Mountain Standard Time or a ballot referendum with a number of timekeeping options.

While Utah's future schedule remains in flux, other areas of the U.S. already avoid daylight savings time, which isn't mandated by the federal government.

For instance, residents of Arizona (except those living on the Navajo Nation), Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Marianas Islands won't need to change their clocks this weekend.

Their #1 college football ranking?
I will agree with ex Oregon football coach Chip Kelly when he thought
ratings meant nothing until the end of the season.
And don't they?
All ready this year haven't we seen many upsets?
We also forget these are college aged kids Not season pros.
And when you really LOOK ah don't the pros get upset?
Its called sports ladies and gentleman and I recently blogged about
what a fanatic does NOT want to hear , A college football game can NOT see
a perfect game so why cry ?
A perfect meaning no first downs, no yards gained?
I am again  sorry , all this whining gets a bit old at least for me,  If the game is going to
give the viewer an up set stomach?
Then turn it off meaning the TV?
But see they don't want to hear that! 
Sure they may be into it more than me, and that's ok but??
Lets cue a song and not use the actual words?
In 1966  The Hollies sang "stop stop stop all the dancing?
I will drop the dancing and ad "Crying"
Or stop stop stop all the crying  and enjoy the game!!!!
Wow Now more than  ever I am glad I no longer walk around FACE BOOK!!!!
