In the course of researching The Suffering, I've had an opportunity to come across many interesting articles having little or nothing to do with Oregon football (or any football).
"Will today's hippie babies be tomorrow's 'straights'?" (If you were born in '69, she was talking to you.)
Expert Says Men Possibly Helping to Upset Weather (1957 report on global warming.. cause: bulldozers?)
However, my favorite headline, by a wide margin, can be seen after the jump:
Here's the earliest photo of a freshly-completed Autzen, about a week before the Colorado opener, in the summer of '67 (found, oddly, in a Spokane newspaper).
Doesn't it look from this angle like a satellite view of a NASCAR track? Or, dare I say, a landfill? (Sorry, but Day Island -- a stone's throw from Autzen -- was the site of Eugene's main sanitary landfill, back then.
Finally, here's one I could use some help with. Found in the UO Library archives, the only annotation on this image was "Unidentified Oregon quarterback plays against Cal, 1970s." Based on the Cal helmet, this looks like it could have been no later than 1973; that's not Fouts, so it isn't '71, and the '72 Cal game was in Berkeley. If you know what year this is, let me know, thanks.
Anyway, note the nearly-empty stands. I'd say this was late in a blowout, but many of those early 70s games only drew 20-25K at best.
