Godunks.net not only will document the progress of the arena from its infancy to its scheduled completion in the fall of 2010, but will provide the public with an interactive forum to post their own images and comments of their memories of McArthur Court, as well as the evolution of Oregon's men's and women's basketball, and volleyball programs.
The window for appealing the project's conditional-use permit expired at the end of the day on Wednesday, Nov. 19, which paves the way for the university to seek building permits from the city of Eugene for the construction of the arena, which could begin before the end of December.
A video promoting the website entitled Golden Age, which is narrated by University of Oregon alum and Nike co-founder Phil Knight, was displayed on the Autzen Stadium video board during the first quarter of last Saturday's Oregon-Arizona football game, and can viewed as part of www.godunks.net.
Current content includes renditions of the exterior of the new arena, a light-hearted look at the comparison of amenities between Mac Court and the new arena, and vital statistics of the Ducks' new home and its projected capacity of 12,541 seats.
Future updates to the website will include ticket prices and the arena's seating configuration, which includes more than 6,000 seats to be priced at $25 or less, options to view and select seats in the building, a webcam that will allow for fans to follow the construction progress of the state-of-the-art facility, student-produced YouTube videos that follow the progress of the inside of the building, and an archive of some of the most memorable play-by-calls from Jerry Allen. In addition, fans will be able to post their own images and videos as time goes on, ask questions in regards to the arena, and look forward to comments from Oregon Athletics Director Pat Kilkenny, coaches and administrators.
Godunks.net also will offer the public an opportunity to subscribe to receive an up-to-the-minute account of developments and information before it is posted on the website.
