  • Top Heavy With A Feather Light Bottom

    PAC-12 fans have spent all year thinking, and believing, that they are the second-best conference to the almighty SEC.  Our only real competition, the Big-Ten and Big-12 (which is which anymore?), maintain that the Pac-12 is too small and too weak to possibly claim that …

    Wildcats think they’re Stanford: REALLY?

    I saw some jaw-dropping quotes from some Kansas State players, and do not misunderstand—I admire what Bill Snyder has done with the Wildcats, yet cannot comprehend some of the reaching statements I read.  Our center, Hroniss Grasu, was quoted by Register-Guard when talking about the …

    Bryan Bennett is at Wide Receiver?

    We have been getting reports over the last month of practices that reserve QB Bryan Bennett has NOT worn the usual Red QB jersey which protects the player from hits during play reps.  He has been wearing the same white jersey as other offensive players–hmmm.  …

    Tyner’s Time Is Not Next Year

    The love Duck fans are showing on Thomas Tyner is almost unpresidented. It’s rare that we, as Oregonians, get to root for one of our own in the Oregon Duck backfield. It’s almost as rare as a back rushing for six hundred yards and scoring …

    An Open Letter To Chip Kelly

    Dear Coach Kelly, By now most Duck fans seem resigned to the notion of the Fiesta Bowl being your last game as Oregon’s coach. In the media and at the proverbial water cooler, your visor has long been packed for the National Football League. And …

  • (Not) Breaking News: Oregon’s offense is really, really good

    I know…this will be stating the obvious. Watching the Alamo Bowl last night, Oregon State’s defense, though ultimately unsuccessful on the scoreboard, still managed to hold Texas under four yards per carry – the average the Beavers allowed this season.  Time to step back and …

  • Notes from around the college football nation: Navy sunk and Beavers hooked

    Another week is in the book and bowl season is still full of entertainment. Yes, I am sure we could get rid of any bowl game matching up Air Force vs. Rice, but at least we saw some cool uniforms being sported by Air force. …

    The Oregon Epitome: Baylor?

    Did you see Baylor run the ball inside well AND throw the long ball for touchdowns in the Holiday Bowl?  It reminded me of our game at Michigan in 2007 where we threw three bombs for TDs, and yet had Dennis Dixon and Jonathan Stewart …

  • What Rich Brooks DID to us…?

    I have often thought about what Coach Brooks achieved at Oregon, but the real accomplishment is where he brought us from when he began.  But what about later?  What was left after he moved up to the NFL, and later to the SEC at Kentucky? …
