The University of Oregon athletic department is completely underwritten by UO alum and Nike president Phil Knight. It’s not like they’re hurting for money. They still came up with a novel approach to fundraising—allowing the general public to watch Ducks’ cheerleading tryouts for $5 apiece.

This may sound like another crazy money grab by a big-time athletics program but Oregon always features some of the hottest most athletically talented cheerleading squads in the country. So let’s be honest-- it’s not like you haven’t paid a lot more to see a lot less in your life.
