Darren Perkins Editorials 53 Comments

I was sitting at my local Starbucks Sunday morning, attempting to get jacked up by acquiring that perfect coffee buzz while blasting some early Motley Crue through my headphones (yeah, I watched their biopic Netflix movie “The Dirt” on Saturday night), but for the first time in God knows how long, I couldn’t think of anything to write. At least …

CFP vs. BCS: A Curmudgeon’s Perspective

Jon Joseph Editorials 58 Comments

Lately I’ve felt a little … curmudgeonly. Perhaps it has something to do with the spring equinox. Or maybe it’s the proximity of this weekend’s Masters Tournament (once again, my invitation to Augusta appears to be lost in the mail). Regardless, I hoped a little research into the history of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) and the College Football Playoff …

Fans have had to rely on Men’s and Women’s basketball to fulfill that fun, and I was looking forward to seeing some Ducks hitting again. The layoff from football has long exceeded my patience and need …

Recruiting Update: Elite Prospect Calls Oregon His “Dream School”

Joshua Whitted Recruiting 29 Comments

Recruiting is a funny business. Many prospects prefer to keep things close to the vest and aren’t comfortable with the media circus that their play draws. Others welcome the limelight and use their high-profile statuses to build their brands and tour schools across the country. Trinity Christian, Tex. cornerback Dwight McGlothern definitely falls into the latter category. Most recruits are …

As a kid, I admired this Errol Flynn gesture: Upon disarming his opponent in a sword fight, Flynn graciously returned his rapier. Had his competition been Bill Belichick, Tom Brady or Julian Edelman? Flynn would have poisoned him pre-duel. Yeah, I know the difference between films and reality, but aren’t we all feeling queasy at what our sports world has become? “Cheaters …
