08:18 AM ET 07.03 | A prized Oregon recruit, running back Thomas Tyner out of Aloha High School, is speeding up the hands of time. [Tyner is] working toward graduating early in order to get an early jump on his college career. Tyner, vacationing in Madras, said Monday he is working with his guidance counselor on a plan that would allow him to enroll at Oregon next spring in time to participate in spring football drills. "It's a whole new system to learn and I want a head start," Tyner said. "I've been dying to get down to Eugene and suit up. Who wouldn't want to play at Autzen?" Tyner, a five-star recruit ranked by Rivals.com as the No. 2 running back in the country, said he shouldn't have to take any extra course work to graduate early.

The official capacity is 54,000, although attendance is routinely around 59,000 and has exceeded capacity for every game since the most recent expansion in 2002.

LOL, this is true!!! Eugene is not a very big town, Probably most of the people are out camping and fishing, instead of sitting inside of a football stadium.

Eugene, Oregon has a population of 156,000 people and probably twice as many ducks. Eugene is not like Corvallis, where the Beavers run wild. LOL.
