Breaking News

The University of Oregon just officially opened up its brand new $19 MILLION state-of-the-art Marcus Mariota Sports Performance Center ... and it's AWESOME!!!!

We're talkin' 30,000 square feet of futuristic top-of-the-line sports technology ... primarily funded by Nike co-founder Phil Knight and his wife, Penny

You gotta check out the video ... it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie -- especially the special resting area ... complete with 5 "sleep pods" where athletes can rest between practices or meetings or maybe even classes??

There's a motion capture camera area to analyze movements ... a boxing ring ... even the laundry area has been upgraded to allow staff to wash 500 POUNDS of laundry at one time. 

There's also a shrine to Mariota in the front of the center -- complete with a video screen that will continuously run highlights of the 2014 Heisman winner.
