It didn’t take long for Nike co-founder to align himself with another winner.

Just days after Knight’s beloved Oregon Ducks lost to Stanford, Knight was on the Alabama sideline for the Tide’s big win against LSU decked head-to-toe in Alabama gear.

Alabama softball coach Patrick Murphy tweeted out the photo Saturday night.

Before Oregon fans become dismayed, know that Knight loves his Ducks. However, the one thing he does love more is Nike prominent product placement and the two-time national champion proudly wears the swoosh.
