Oregon’s locker room puts some celebrity cribs to shame.
That’s why Ducks QB Bryan Bennett, the presumed starter this fall, took viewers on a tour of the school’s football locker room like it was an episode of MTV’s “Cribs” – complete with a familiar accompanying background track. Check the video below.
It starts with a wall lifting up like a garage door after Bennett taps it. On the inside, the Ducks have a two-story locker room, in which players can get a bird’s-eye view of their coach’s game-day speeches.
There’s also state-of-the-art lockers that ventilate the manly fumes that come from sweat-soaked uniforms and different light settings – including one labeled “lounge” - to match that of the stadium on a particular day, so that players’ eyes don’t need to make an adjustment upon running onto the field.
And of course, there are multiple homages to Nike’s Phil Knight, Oregon’s uber-booster, whom Bennett refers to as “Uncle Phil” – a nickname normally used by those who mock the hand-outs that Knight gives to the school.
We can’t blame Bennett. If we called the lap of luxury that is Oregon’s locker room home, Knight would be our hero, too.
