31.Oct.2009 Watching ESPN Gameday this Morning
Share your thoughts here. Seriously, I’d like to know what fellow fans think while watching this show.
Despite having similar records on the field, Oregon has a better program than Oregon State, this being their second title run in 3 years. Sold out Autzen for 10 straight years, Beavers haven’t sold out a game this season.
Gameday=more great pub for the Ducks, Phil Knight, Nike. Rich get richer. Etc.
Oregon is going to win this game, and possibly big, and get in the national title picture, so we’ll have to deal with Duck-gushing the next five weeks. I predict the Ducks steal USC’s slot and are ranked #5 on Monday, possibly even leap-frogging Iowa and being as high as #4.
Beavs need to run the table and get the Holiday Bowl to salvage this season and get some national momentum to head into their recruiting season.
Since the Beavs are not going to run the table and reach the Holiday Bowl, they need to win the Civil War and destroy the Ducks season (don’t see this happening, but perhaps the defense will be a different/better unit in 5 weeks or the Ducks will be on their 9th QB by that point).
Finally, my gut tells me Lee Corso will don the Duck headgear, mayhem will ensue, and Angry will lose his breakfast.
