On Thursday night, the Oregon Ducks blew their chance at the BCS National Championship Game when they were defeated by the Stanford Cardinal.

It had to be a heart-wrenching experience for Nike co-founder and Ducks alum Phil Knight to watch his program fall just short at yet another shot at bringing the crystal ball to Eugene.

Remember, he’s the man in charge of the company that makes all of those uniforms we love so dearly week in and week out. Those different combinations of green, yellow, black, purple and every other color of the rainbow they can figure out how to work in–he’s the man behind it.

So, as disappointed as he was to see Oregon lose, I’m sure that Oregon fans will be equally as disappointed to see this.

This is a picture of Knight at tonight’s Alabama-LSU showdown, and he’s sure not wearing any yellow and green, that’s for sure.

No, that seems like Alabama crimson to me:

    Even he knows Oregon is garbage

    Oregon vs. Texas AM for a shootout game where no one has a defense.

    He is not hopping on anyone’s band wagon….LOL… This shock media crap is getting old. He is the owner of nike which makes the uniform of Alabama, he was invited by Alabama and who would turn down a LSU vs Bama game? The reason for his Bama apparel was for advertisement he is a business man after all. I am a huge Alabama fan and I have been a fan since I was old enough to make that choice as a child, it’s a thing here in Alabama like a birth rite….lol… I personally do not like bandwagoneers and fair weather fans and I can spot them a mile away he is not one.

    Why would the leader of a company that makes the shoes and uniforms for your team, show up and support you in the biggest game of your season (so far).

    This has never happened before!
