Breaking news out of Corvallis

"OSU football practice was delayed after a player found a white powdery substance on the field. Coach Riley suspended the practice and called the police. After a complete analysis, forensic experts determined that the unknown substance was the Goal Line. Practice resumed after it was decided the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again this season."

It's official. The Ducks will play in the National Championship game!

I would think that even the Husky fans among us have to admit the Ducks are not a fluke.

I admit that they're better than I thought, and at the same time, they still have to win it. It will be interesting to see if Auburn can figure out how to stop them without being able to make defensive substitutions. The Pac-10 never seemed to figure it out.

Actually, UO will see the biggest and most athletic lines they have seen all year. I think the issue is whether UO can neutralize that advantage with their speed and pace.

I think they will on offense, but on defense the other team gets to dictate.
Oh yeah. Auburn have the Heisman guy, too.
I think it will be a great game.

Not so, at least in terms of size:

Now you of course can still make the argument for athleticism . . .

Well I hope you're happy now. The first thing I thought of when I saw the new Ducks uniforms was Seattle's alternate jersey. Mad

If it helps at all, when seattle unleashed that 3rd kit last year, it reminded me of the '03 ducks... (Haha, but the won the USOC wearing them so I don't complain too much)

Yeah, the build up awaits us. Which of the 50,000 U of O jersey combinations will they choose for the national championship game?

--------------------------------

For me as far as strategy goes, the biggest question is: how does Auburn adapt to not being able to make any defensive substitutions? Auburn has the talent to win it, but, they've got to be able to find a way to get that talent onto the field.

"The SEC doesn't have more talent than anybody else (other leagues) have just as good of players but luck has been on their side." --Auburn Center Ryan Pugh.

At least the guy is humble. I'm sure a lot of other SEC players and coaches think that their league does have more talent...which is bogus.

I'm totally indifferent about the result of this one... I think I'm just as fed up with hearing that the SEC is a better conference as I am with the Ducks. But, then again even if the Ducks win it the SEC dudes will continue to spout nonsense. All we hear about is the royal SEC in American football and the Big East in basketball. One more reason to love the original form of football...

Well, until next year then... The Pac-10 still has a winning record against the SEC in bowl games at 12-10, and Oregon loses as well. They did represent the conference pretty well though.

AU played better, but Ducks left points on the floor. 3 points total for 3 trips to red zone won't get it done. The hero of the game is the DB who stayed with the play and stopped Tuinei on the 3 instead of scoring. That play won the game. Hated to see the game lost on a fluke play. If UO was the type of team that piled on after a guy's down, probably would have been OT.

Man, there were just so many moments that Oregon didn't capitalize on or things just didn't quite go Oregon's way. The tackle that wasn't, Harris' interception that wasn't (next play AU TD), DT's second pick while driving towards a score, Tuinei getting tackled, not punching it in on fourth down. A lot of things.......

I love Chip Kelly though. We'll be back. One game or one play doesn't define you as a man or a team. All true. Keep winning the day.

If Portland State ever got to the FCS Championship Game I would be all right with UP wishing them well.

Yea, I don't know that it's a big deal.. I would certainly wish the beavs well in any bowl game, and wouldn't be offended if UP wished them well in a rose bowl or national title game. Now, if its the Las Vegas bowl, it would seem odd to comment on it, but c'mon, it's the national championship game. Hell, I'd even wish WSU and.....?????......UW??????....well if they were playing Auburn in the title game. Seems it s a State of Oregon pride thing (or PNW pride). I've got no problem.

Well, to me it feels more like bandwagon jumping. There's a lot of diversity at UP, and the only team that we all cheer for wears purple. Anytime we play the University of Oregon in basketball, women's soccer, men's soccer, or X-Country, I want to kick their tails.

I agree that I always want UP to whoop up on the ducks. I think it's a bit different when UP doesn't sponsor a football team.

You're right. It is different, and at the same time, no Facebook post wishing another school well in a sporting event is going to make everyone happy. There is just too much diversity at U of P. Whether the post was about U of O for state pride or Notre Dame, our sister school, or any other team in the northwest, there's going to be some disagreement there.

When I attended, the school was only about 25% Catholic, I believe, and a large number of students came from out of state. The Hawaiian club was the biggest club of the school, and the annual luau was a really big deal (as I think it still is). Way too much diversity to make the assumption that everyone is a U of O football fan...
