Haven't seen much about Utah's 62-20 throttling of Oregon at Autzen Stadium. Watched some local sports shows yesterday and BTN and really no discussion that maybe Spartys signature win wasn't all that impressive. I think this game has huge implications that maybe Sparty isn't as good as advertised. What say you?
High school student seize rare historical college football opportunity.
How many of us as high schoolers would have gone on a 2,500 road trip with our buddies to go watch BOTH Oregon State at Michigan and Oregon at Michigan State football games? That's nuts.
They packed dozens of peanut butter sandwiches for the trip to save time and money.
"Aw dude, roll down the goddamn window man!"
Peanut butter breath and farts for 2,500 miles.
Also, makes one wonder how many cruel "OMG, WAKE UP!" pranks occurred along the way?
Over 136 season openers, the Wolverines have lost only 22 games — just 16.2 percent.
We've lost our season opener 16 times since 1946. In five of the ensuing seasons we won at least a share of the Big 10 title, and finished 2nd three times.
An interesting development to happen at the exact time we are about to announce our apparel contract. Nike chair Phil Knight, of Pimp my Middling Athletic Department fame, is stepping down. There's absolutely no way this has anything to do with us, right? I'm guessing the answer is somewhere between no and audible laughter that I even suggested it... The guy is 76. This is just weird timing.

I came across a really interesting article this morning and thought it'd make a good read for everyone here. A recent former Oregon player (who is currently anonymous) decided to take in his first ever game from the stands, and wrote a piece about it and the awful fans he had sitting around him.
He raises some really good points about some bad behaviors many fans have when they are disparaging their team from the stands, and I have to say I completely understand his point of view. Maybe we can learn something from this and reflect on how we act when we take in a Michigan game.
TL;DR version - don't be an asshat in the stands, you never know who may be sitting nearby.
