Now that a week has gone by, it actually seems real. The excitement and spectacular tension of the final few weeks is now replaced with busy shoppers checking off their lists with BCS National Championship gear, tickets, travel and all that goes along with a title run.
Two things come directly to mind for me about this season: First, the culture that has been created by Chip Kelly and this football team. Their attention to detail, unity, sense of accountability and mature approach are unmatched. Each and every one of the individuals associated with the team helped make this happen: from the head coach, to every student athlete, all the way through the program's interns, video staff, trainers, travel coordinators, academic advisors, and the families that support these individuals. It was simply amazing.
Secondly, the fans. Watching Oregon fans take it to the next level has been extremely exciting over the years. The game day atmosphere in Eugene is by far the best in the Pac-10, and there is none better anywhere in the nation. Seeing 25,000 Duck fans in the stadium at Cal and hearing their roar as it caused a procedure penalty - by a kicker's own admission - simply amazing! What a following...I know each member of the team appreciates every syllable yelled, and every ounce of pride all fans feel around the world.
It is with team culture and fans in mind that we created the Oregon Football 2010 Championship Season DVD. We take you through every game, including the 2010 Rose Bowl game that truly started this historic journey. You'll get to watch every touchdown, all the way through the final celebration of a 12-0 season in Corvallis. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it, and that you keep it on your DVD shelf forever, commemorating this spectacular season.
This DVD is now available online by clicking here, and also while supplies last at the Duck Store, Bi-Mart, and Jerry's Home Improvement. It will make a fantastic gift for any Duck in your household.
