I agree that Scott  should be "tasked with keeping UP relevant and vibrant amid a tumultuous NCAA landscape," but it seems outdated to have such a subjective Top-25 list...kind of like a beauty contest.

A UO defensive back is the 11th most influential person in Oregon sports this year?

Actually he's a defensive lineman, maybe the best college player in the country.

I also found it interesting that a university president was on the list.  And I got a note that UP hopes to have a president in place by July, 2022? Seems like a very slow process.  Are they waiting for someone particular to become available?

I am still shaking my head at a college defensive lineman, Kayvon Thibodeaux. being considered the 11th most influential sports person in Oregon.

I have looked for him during UO games but rarely saw him play until yesterday when his obvious targeting of the Stanford qb resulted in his ejection and Stanford's two subsequent TDs to beat the Ducks.

UP Alum, #13 Jim Etzel, is far more influential in Oregon.
