Is the a line on the color combo oregon will go with?
National Championship Game Open Thread
Unless they make changes, I think they've already announced their uniforms for tonight.
The socks.. NOOOOO!
It looks like a foot fungus that just never stopped..
I can deal with the socks.....I'm not big on white on white unis
and it's spreading.
Makes Auburn's uniforms look pretty dated.
I will add that this is the only Oregon uniform this year that didn't make me vomit in my mouth...
its all white with neon green piping+socks
Boy I see this game and see what we could have been in a couple of years except for the stubborness and arrogance of some former players imsisting their will on the present affairs of the program. Hopefully the next coach brings a highpowered type of spread.
As long as he brings it without ignoring the other, equally important parts of the game. I'm all for it. From all signs, we would not have been there in a couple years. We would have had the offense but not the D or special teams, since those things just werent a priority to the "genius". BTW, heard any other top flight programs mentioning him yet as potential coach?
Go Ducks! I'm sick of the SEC.
Ok. Just kidding. Go Ducks!
I'm down with the Duck pick too. Even know there losing right now, I hope they pull it out. Just don't wanna see another SEC team win it, for the 5th straight. Uuugghh. Come on Ducks pull it out.
im sad for one reason - this is the last college football game for ~8.5 months.
make it last folks, cuz this is the last call on the season.
We can make it the pregame thread.
I hope you are wrong. I would like to see Oregon stick it to Auburn and the SEC.
I would like to encourage everyone to who can to pull up the ESPN3 stream, even if you are going to be watching it on a different device. I'm sure that ESPN is monitoring how many people tune in over http and the more that do the more incentive they have to keep serving that audience.
Basically the more people watching the stream means more eyes on their content, more eyes on their ads and the ability to charge more for commercials and thus more incentive to stream more and more.
Crex dropping teh knowledge per usual.
But seriously. Do this. Use a computer or a phone (ESPN mobile baby). Force advertisers to support streaming media!
I work for an advertising agency that buys ESPN3 media, you'll be surprised how expensive it already is (as compared to other online media). Still more efficient than TV though.
Good idea! I was planning on heading to friends' house to watch the game. Maybe I'll leave the game streaming on my computer at home. Once I cancel my cable because football is over, I'll be living and dying by online streaming.
I think streaming media is the wave of the future. Netflix streaming content is the best thing ever.
Auburn is the more tested team, but Oregon is dynamite in cleats.
Fairley will need oxygen by the end of the 1st quarter.
DA OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...GO DUCKS GO.....DUCKS TRUCK THE TIGERS OVER...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oregon is too fresh with their uniforms (minus the socks) and their quack attack offense. I hope they can pull it out. I am soooo sick of the SEC. If Oregon can contain AU'S d-line they have a chance. Easier said than done though.
Nick Saban adds a lot to the commentary, but he's like Ricky Bobby- "I don't know what to do with my hands". He's just flailing them about while he's talking. STOP.
What does this game have to do our new coach? I don't get why it is happening if it does not have anything to do with Michigan's new coach. They should just postpone it until we get this thing figured out.
We figure while watching the game they'll announce/say/speculate about our new coach.
Oh, Ducks vs SECleaze. Man I hope Oregon pulls this out tonight.
Pac10 beats SEC, B1G steals LSU coach, Saban and Creyer have to be physically removed from Corso's member.
On Sportscenter... Golic took Oregon,..Greenberg Auburn... I'll go with Golic on this one fore 2 reasons,.... Greenbergs horrible stone lead pipe lock pick em records & just cause he's not the smartest of the two...
GO DUCKS GO !!!
5M/yr for 5 years for LM.
Edit: sorry mods, meant to put this on the other thread.
Do you think we will be the big news instead of the game?
Crediting you for the find.
Just got back home.
Go Ducks!!! Cam seems as "dirty" as Pryor right about now...
Yeah, just read the above gig of $5 mill/year... if & WHEN announced then I will agree,..till otherwise, it's all speculation....
I urge caution, at least until Fox-2 reports it.
As I post a comment on ths blog , my mgoblog points keep going down... any reason for that ?, or how does the point allocation work on the blog ?...thanks for any help...
Thanks.... trying to lay of the keyboard !
Live in Oregon; support Ducks as my second team. A caller on The Fan here in Portland just predicted a Duck Win, 60-29. In the history of sports gambling, has anyone ever predicted this score? I did not think so.
Head says the one-armed bandits win. Whereas, I'm pretty sure the O's O will put up points, it's hard for me to figure out a way Oregon can stop Auburn, other than a bunch of cheapo turnovers. It could happen, but I wouldn't bank on it (especially with the moneyline less than tasty).
I'm really hoping the Ducks roll 'em tonight.
One - because I hate the EES EEE SEEE and
Two - I really need some sleep and a midnight nailbiter won't help.
I want to see Oregon get blasted out of the stadium for those uniforms, or Auburn get blasted out of the stadium because they're slimeballs.
Preferably the latter, but I'll take what I can get.
Looking at the bright side by looking at the darker side. Let your hate make you stronger. As for me, cheating > neon. But hey, to each his own.
I didn't move to Bama to deal with the Tide and Tigers each winning NC's as soon I get here. If Auburn wins I'm coming home for obvious reasons.
I can't see either team winning?
and do the opposite of what Auburn and Oregon have been doing this year.
Come on. Aaron Shea is shaking his head already. "Spread offense" and "national championship game" in the same sentence?
That's crazy talk.
It's looking like a scoreless tie is the most likely outcome. How many overtimes do they play before they just give up.
