Should I even create this? It’s unrelated to the Beavs, and honestly I don’t give a hoot who wins.

We know what’s at stake:

If the Ducks win, it’s good for Pac-12 respectability.

However, if the Ducks win, it gives Duck fans bragging rights. But really, who brags anymore? If any of your friends give you flack or act like they won the NT, just remind them they’re being pathetic and:

Basking in reflected glory (BIRGing) is a self-serving cognition whereby an individual associates themselves with known successful others such that the winner’s success becomes the individual’s own accomplishment

Unless they suited up for the game they did jack shit, and cheering for young men you don’t know is kind of eerie. We root for the uniform, school pride, etc, and if our school wins we should be proud of our school not bash another school. Don’t see the need to bash Ducks or visa versa. Don’t understand those of you who hate the Ducks (hate = jealousy).

Just let the better team win and move on with life. I’m completely indifferent to this game and might not even watch. From everything I’ve read and heard, TCU was the best team in the country this year and got hosed, so these teams are playing for the silver and bronze.

Go……..whoever.

45-27, Oregon

    Nope, you’re off base angry. I hate them because they’re our rival, not because I’m jealous of anything they’ve ever done. If we won the national championship for the next hundred years straight in every single sport while they simultaneously lost every game, I would still hate them with the same passion.

    And since the enemy of my enemy is my friend, go Bucks, fuck the ducks!

    One thing I want to say, I think the college playoffs have been a step in the right direction. It’s too bad it couldn’t be expanded to include a few more teams(current system contracted through 2025), but I’ve enjoyed bowl season so far, and hopefully tonight will be another quality game.

      I don’t want to see it get any bigger. Four seems like the right number. Yeah TCU and Baylor got left out, but they both played weaker schedules than Ohio State. If you had eight teams you would put in a couple of teams who quite honestly did not deserve to be there. By keeping it at four teams you preserve the importance of every regular season game and that’s why we still care. March Madness? Anyone besides us at the moment care what’s going on in college basketball? Other than Kentucky?

        I’m tired of this “importance of every game” bullshit line. If every game were important, SEC teams would play nine conference games instead of a bunch of directional cupcakes. Win your conference, and you are a champion. Then we can talk about you as a contender among champions in a tournament.

    I think the real question should be something like this: With the Ducks participating in this game, and Mariota winning the Heisman, should the Civil War rivalry even be considered as a quality rivalry anymore? I ask this because seemingly many people in the OSU fan base, alumni base, administration, and media(ex: Ken Goe) have adapted to and accepted the mindset of thinking that it is impossible to do any better, by constantly playing the “woe is Corvallis” card and selling the program short. It seems like those people have accepted the Beavers’ standing and don’t want OSU to show the initiative to do better, and would rather attack those who are critical of the program(such as demonizing John Canzano). A Ducks win will only ratchet up my frustration towards DeCarolis in driving the program into the ground. It would also make it harder for me to watch Pac-12 football anymore, since DeCarolis doesn’t seem to care.(He gave Riley the contract that was difficult to get out of, in which it provided no incentive to do better.)

    Urban Meyer was instrumental in the development of the Oregon Offense system. If one person, and only one person in the world, knows the keys to how to defend against Oregon, it is Urban Meyer. Big advantage for Ohio State. Duck haters are in some ways like ISIS followers, so hung up on perceived insults to the prophet, so full of envy and lust for success, that they cannot see that supporting the Ducks is In their best interest.

    I could be wrong but I think Mb’s got it wrong. Based on stories like this it sounds like it’s just the opposite of what Mb says:

    Sharing secrets: How do Ohio State, Oregon trade tips?

    When Ohio State’s Urban Meyer took a year off from coaching, he made a trip to Oregon to see how Chip Kelly was running the Ducks.

    Both Meyer and Kelly had an affinity for spread offenses, but Xs and Os were not necessarily Meyer’s most important takeaway. Oregon had become a program in synch from top to bottom, from ball boys to the quarterbacks.

    Some of the former Oregon coach’s methods were nothing like what Meyer would have ever considered, but everyone on campus seemed to be buying in.

    ”You know, you go in (to Oregon’s practices), they are playing `Lion King’ music,” Meyer said. ”They have like a DJ at practice, bizarre stuff now. I remember even I was like, `What is this?”’

    Now playing music in practice is part of the Buckeyes’ routine. Leading into the Michigan game, LL Cool J’s ”It’s Time for War” was blaring all week.

    ”We shared a lot of ideas,” Meyer said about Kelly.

    After Ohio State beat Alabama to earn a spot opposite Oregon in the first College Football Playoff national championship game on Monday night, Meyer spoke so glowingly about how well the two programs know each other some might have thought the coaches were exchanging Christmas cards.

    Not quite.

      There’s probably few significant differences in size and speed between these two teams. OSU, despite their turnovers giving UO more opportunities, is playing better defense. UO missed some opportunities early too.

      I think the advantage is in coaching more so than player talent. To keep the D playing well, despite all of the extra possessions is “huge!’, so many teams get demoralized against the Ducks and lose focus, quit playing…

    Following the CW blowout, I didn’t suspect the offseason would be this good; Andersen hired, Tinkle has MBB playing well, Ducks tank in the NC….

    Most of all, thank you Nebraska, thank you.

    OSU football gets interesting in 2015. Hopefully Andersen can recover in recruiting, spring and fall camps will be very interesting. Hoping SilverStream can get to some practices.

    I watched the espn2 feed, the “coaches room” because I’m into the details of the game. Riley was there but didn’t contribute a whole lot but didn’t say anything real dumb. The other guys were younger so they talked more.

    But If you can, watch a replay of it. They were calling out formations and plays before they happened and talked about the tells that OSU was giving. OSU ran a counter play several times for a lot of yards, including a TD run. the coaches pointed out that the left guard was giving away the play every time. Only at the end did the oregon defense adjust.

    My take after watching with 4 coaches input, the fault really is entirely on the ducks d coordinator. Failure to adjust to the same play over and over killed them. OSU didn’t do a lot of complicated stuff.

      You nailed it here. Their defensive scheme is a gap cancellation with the goal of being quick attack and penetration. They fill quickly to holes. Often the weak side linebacker is designed to fill the last hole to the action of the play. When the RB cutsback away from the action there is no one but a safety to stop it. I think that if you run trap and counter (Ohio State did) against them, they will be forced to adjust by stopping their up field penetration (their biggest d advantage) which then allows the power and iso to work so well. This style is a new development from Pellum over Allioti but a belief that Pellum has held for a long time.

            Duck weren’t too worried about sportsmanship when they ran up the score on FSU, keeping starters in late in the game when up 30, going for a 2 pt conversion in the 4th, playing on 4th down rather tham settling for a field goal in the 4th. They didn’t deserve mercy on that final drive and I’m glad they didnt get it

            Sure you could. Folks might not LIKE your justification, but tough. And then when FSU loses or barely wins a lesser bowl game, and TCU (or whoever) competes really well in the Rose Bowl, no one would complain. But at least with a 4 team playoff, you are pretty likely to end up with the actual best, as champ. Not much question about tOSU…..wow.
