Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Keeerrrttt1 @FishDuck.com opens the history book and looks at the first two African-American student athletes who came to the U of O, Bobby Robinson and Charles Williams. It was a different era of course and they weren't afforded the same privileges as other students-athletes. (very good article)

At the University of Oregon, truly the only colors that matter today are green and yellow…and black, and steel matte, and grellow; and whatever other fluorescent rainbow uniform combinations may be unleashed in the future. Oregon is a place of innovation and forward-thinking, spurred by the sense of family within the program and universal acceptance in the community. For the present and future grand accomplishments to come at the U of O, we all owe a debt of gratitude to those who have come before, in particular the incredible talents and groundbreaking courage displayed by Bobby Robinson and Charles Williams.

GO DUCKS!
