Looking Back at Oregon's $150k Recruiting Weekend

Here's a real blast from the past. It's a look back at Oregon's $150,000 recruiting weekend back in 2004. Since that weekend and other recruited faux pas, the NCAA started legislating what schools could and could not do on recruiting visits, outlawing various outlandish acitivites.
