"I will never go back to that school again"

The reprehensible behavior by the Oregon's Pit Crew towards Kevin Love has drawn national headlines, but somewhat lost in the commotion is the treatment of one of the Ducks' own - Oregon Hall of Famer and Kevin's father, Stan Love.


Love, who played basketball at Oregon from 1968-71, said his brother, Mike Love, a member of the Beach Boys, was spit on and bumped, and that fans threw things at them.

"I will never go back to that school again, not the way I was treated, or the way my 13-year-old daughter (Emily) was treated," Stan Love said. "It's a completely distasteful place to play for or go to school. They take pride in that."

Stan Love said Ernie Kent should have talked to the fans to help eradicate the behavior.

"I wouldn't help recruit. I wouldn't talk nice about them," Stan Love said. "I wouldn't help them build an arena. Why? So they can have more people behave like that?"

Throwing things at a 13-year-old. Classy. Reminds me of trOJan fans behavior at the Mausoleum. It would be like us shunning Big Red just because his son (understandably) went to Arizona rather than join Lavin's House of Horrors.

Oh well, their apology is just an example of too little, too late (thanks to ewcorpuz on Youtube):

Notice the camaraderie between DC and Love at the end of the video. You don't think this team genuinely likes each other? These guys make me proud to be a Bruin, especially against the backdrop of such a vicious and hostile environment.
