Really? they need to beat a .500 team in their conference and that will do it?
John Strong's rejoinder on Twitter: Shouldn't that be the other way around?

Yeah Ricky, you shut 'em down last night. Only 28 points in the second half after 32 in the first. I like going for two; too bad Chip couldn't squeeze in a fake punt. And I think the yellow and black is a cool combination.

I loved the uniforms last night. They were sharp. I even got that comment from a born and bred Big 10 co-worker this morning.

Love or hate the Oregon PR department, they were in full force yesterday. The whole game was an advertisement for Oregon football. ESPN was showing shots of Oregon's facilities, which are pretty awesome, all game long. They even did a feature of on the duck. Oregon got twice the Sportscenter coverage simply because they put all the hosts' pictures on their play cards. You know that move, which is just pure genius, had to come from the PR department.

As for the Uni's, those stupid feathers on the shoulder pads are actually starting to look not that bad.

Did Puddles really have to do 311 pushups?

If he did, get him on the team. The guy is a beast !

Now Auburn is #1. So I guess we're going to keep rolling through other undefeated teams until giving it to Oregon or BSU.

I tend not to believe in conspiracy theories, but I'm with you on this. They don't want that to happen. Or TCU vs. BSU. No way.
I was actually hope for either oregon vs. oklahoma or oregon vs. BSU. Just because of the recent history between those teams. (after OSU lost to BSU, the mic picked up a BSU player telling an OSU player to "kick the ---- outta Oregon"). No love lost there.

Seriously. Eugene and Boise. But, maybe they could treat us to a halftime tour of Oregon's NFL style locker room where true student athletes develop their motor skills by playing their X-boxes, testing their reflexes and preparing them for life in the conference of Champions. Hahaha...cough, cough.

Of course, not like Oregon can talk... lost amid the LaMichael James Heisman hype is the fact that he was arrested for strangling his ex-girlfriend. Not to mention the fact that he was arrested for assault right before his freshman year too... great player, but it's hard to root for him.

Oh that was well after the Dawgfather had retired...

On a related note, Jerramy Stevens just got kicked off the Tampa Bay Bucs for drugs... Where have I heard that before?? I remember watching that dude in HS, he was just an insane talent, unfortunately he was also insane.

But a lot of UO boosters would say something like, she attacked him so it's ok or something along those lines. At least he didn't steal laptops, drive without a license and get busted with some of Eugene's finest herbal remedy... (I hear people do that.)

Then, there's the QB who was kicked off the team this year...

One of the most unintentionally funny quotes I've hear all year came from Houston Nutt as he was lobbying the NCAA to let Masoli play this year:

I just want the people at the NCAA to see what a fantastic young man he's been ... for the last month.

the more I think about it, they paid some actor to do that to boost ratings.

First off, nobody in the South speaks like that anymore. TV has made everyone talk like a Canadian. (think Peter Jennings)

second, the guy made a complete ass of himself and tried to push every Duck button imaginable. No way it was real.

Just a ratings ploy.

Talking about Pete Carrol as if he were still head coach at USC, and claiming to have won every NC for the last ten years.....I dunno, I just can't believe someone that into football would be that dumb.
But it was still obscenely funny.

Google search "SEC guy." They should have called him out as a fake. Still, quality entertainment.

Chip Kelly to Erin Andrews, post USC, when she asked what kind of statement his team coming from behind makes: " I don't know, I'm not into statements. I'm just into winning games, Bud."

8 and 0, ranked #1 in the BCS, and calls EA "Bud". It's good to be Chip Kelly! Pimp
