Great job this weekend everyone! The Pit Crew was amazing this week and let's keep it up. Here's a little something from the LA Times. Be Proud Of The Pit Crew!!!!!!
From the LA Times:
"Coming to you from McArthur Court in Eugene, Ore., where some Oregon students thought it would be funny to fill my Times' press row seat with about 40 yellow "Duckeroni" foam sticks and pom-poms.
But that's what makes McArthur Court, which closes after this season, special: the students, specifically the rowdy and ruckus group known as "Pit Crew" that's never too kind to visitors (even visiting members of the press, it seems).
Right now, I can spot these signs in the Crew: "Good luck in the Postseason!", "$C vs. NCAA - Fight On!" and two tombstone-shaped signs that also represent USC's postseason."

All students are encouraged to attend and provide ideas. We're looking for chants that DON'T follow a typical cadence such as "clap, clap--clap, clap, clap" and things we can chant based on what's happening in the game. Ideas for things such as: bad calls, turnovers, missed free throws, lots of shots taken, etc. that we can teach and use throughout the game are ideal. Come to the meeting prepared and start finding information on both teams right away.
Students who submit the 3 best ideas for each game throughout the season will receive NIKE gift cards and/or Oregon merchandise. We're also looking for students wanting to become more involved who are willing to lead chants in each section. Students will receive items for their service. Any student interested should attend Sunday's meeting for more information.

We need to continue improving and, to do this, we need both better chants and more participation from students sitting in the corner sections. Students who submit the 3 best ideas or chants for each game, at least 3 days prior to the game, will be given NIKE gear or gift cards. Additionally, students who routinely submit great ideas will possibly earn access to the NIKE employee store at the end of the season.
The next home game is January 15th against Washington and we need to start compiling ideas right away to prepare. If you have any inside information on UW players, funny themes, or innovative chants, please send them to email@example.com. Also, feel free to utilize the Pit Crew message board which can be accessed from the home page.

A few other things:
1. This season, with help from NIKE, we will be awarding items to students who provide the 3 best ideas for each Pac-10 game. This includes chants, themes, songs, stunts, or anything else the Pit Crew can do for each game. Members supplying ideas we feel are the most unique will be rewarded with gear or gift certificates. Ideas should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, by 12:00 each Monday afternoon before the week’s games.
2. We are looking for 5-6 students who would like to become more involved with the Pit Crew by being in charge of a section. So far this season, and in the past few seasons, the two corner sections haven’t been consistently involved in the game and we need to improve. Mac Court isn’t as intimidating as it should be when every section isn’t loud! This is a great opportunity for students who: enjoy athletics, like interacting with other students, are friendly, and looking for something to help bolster their resume. Section leaders will also receive gear, along with other items for their help. If interested, please email email@example.com with a short description of yourself including: year, major college interests, and why you are a good candidate to help?
3. At each game this year we will be selecting a Qdoba/Pit Crew Member of the Game. Each winner will receive a gift card for 5 free entree’s and one Pit Crew member this season will win free entrée’s for an entire year! There isn’t set criteria for how to be the Member of the Game, but you must be wearing a Pit Crew shirt (at least partial) to win and body paint is advised.

They really need students to come to games and support the team. This Thursday (tomorrow) there will be free Pizza to all students who attend the game, which begins at 7:00. The team, which is undefeated at home this season, will be missing 3 starters and could really use a strong student presence!
During the Pac-10 season, students who attend games regularly will have the opportunity to win items like new computers, gift certificates, and free food.
Go out an support the womens team, they play hard and deserve to have a student section as well.

We will also have the remaining Pape Jam tickets on sale for $15 at the meeting. They can be used by anyone, are half off retail price, and the seats are on the floor behind a basket. Awesome seats in the same section as last year.

The event will begin at 3:30 and students must attend to receive their shirt. Coach Kent and Coach Smith will both talk about the season and what they would like to see from the Pit Crew. If you have any questions, post them in the comments section or the message board and I'll try to answer them.

Here's a copy of the email sent, this afternoon, to students who will be receiving Pit Crew shirts. If you do not receive a shirt, it doesn't mean you aren't a member of the Pit Crew. All students should be wearing yellow shirts to games, standing, and getting involved. That includes students who are in the corners and in the 100 level. Here's the email, with a number to contact if you have any questions:
You are now a member of the 2008-09 Pit Crew! In honor of your commitment to the Oregon Men's Basketball program through attendance at the first four games this year, you have been awarded a 2008-09 Pit Crew shirt! Pit Crew shirts will be distributed at an exclusive open basketball practice at which you will hear from both Head Coach Ernie Kent and Head Coach Bev Smith!
Where: Mac Court
When: Monday, December 1st @ 3:30pm
What to Bring: UO Student ID card (You will not be given your shirt without it!)
The Oregon Basketball program would like to thank you for your support during the month of November and hopes the enthusiasm will carry over into the Pac-10 season with the loudest arena in the country!
