that coaches need private hot tubs with waterproof video displays. Diane Dietz of the RG on UO's newest football palace.
FWIW, AD Rob Mullens never completed the report to OUS on how he'd cover the operating expenses. My suggestion - cut baseball. $76,274,142 in expenses for crap like this, but ask Mullens what the Ducks can afford to give UO back for academic scholarships, and his answer is $0. From the report to the NCAA:
The full report is available on the Ducks financial info page here - created after a few public records requests and petitions to the AG.
Update: The RG is reporting that the Ducks falsely claimed that there were never any private hot tub plans - sorry, it's right there in the blueprints. That's transparency for you.
But Duck spokesperson Craig Pintens is now saying that there will be no private hot tub - damn NCAA lawyers.
But now Duck spokesperson Dave Williford reports that the hot-tub and adjoining steam room are still in the plans, but will be open to all the football coaches, in a special shared "wet room". 7/17/2012.
