Go Ducks

I just watched the Oregon victory over Washington. That was a nice homecoming game. 34-14 was the final score. Both Washington touchdowns came off of Oregon turnovers. Oregon had over 300 yards rushing. Jonathan Stewart looks incredible. He is for real. The announcers were comparing him to Emmitt Smith, and that seems like a fair comparison to me. We also have the top receiver in the Pac-10. And he's one of three receivers starting over two of the top three receivers from last year, when the offense wasn't too shabby. That's an offense with 5 big-time receivers, 2 big-time running backs, a tight end who fits the spread offense perfectly, and a quarterback who can move the ball with his arm or with his feet. Next week going down to USC should be interesting. Hopefully theyre looking ahead to the Cal and Notre Dame games, and hopefully our defense shows up like it did today.

I didn't get to watch the Portland game last night. I saw a little of the post-game show and have read about it. Sounds like the style of play favored us early, but then we gave in to the Don Nelson small-ball that Golden State wanted to play. Once that happened it went downhill. Randolph and Roy were both good again, but as others have said, we need someone to consisttently step up and be that third option. If only Martell's back could be perfectly healthy.

Oregon State's win over USC didn't matter? Lousville beating West Virginia didn't matter? Ohio State's bowl game isn't going to matter?

Just checking. But point taken, since I knew what game you meant.
