PORTLAND, Ore. – Some University of Oregon fans say it’s getting crowded in the bleachers. The problem: Jumbo seat cushions.

So the school proposes to limit cushions to 17 inches wide.

University spokeswoman Julie Brown says there have been ”a few complaints” about extra-wide cushions taking up too much space at venues with bench-style seating, such as Autzen Stadium and Hayward Field. The benches include seat numbers, but no lines to mark just how much room each spectator gets.
