alternate headline: man does job
Oregon is pouring it on now. I really hope they go undefeated and play Alabama in the NC. Great O vs. great D.
Oregen would get hammered if they played Alabama, sure it may be close for while but Alabama would easily take home the trophy.
they are stopping offense and has a stud DE/OLB in Dion Jordan who will be a top 5 pick in the NFL draft.
I hope Oregon runs the table. I do NOT want to see this offense in Pasadena.
Plus, I hate Todd Graham. I hope Oregon is up about 63-7 at the half, and they're well on their way.
At the risk of having tomatoes thrown in my direction, I also wouldn't mind if ASU was the second best Pac 12 school in the state.
i wouldnt object to a forfeit.
The only thing more impressive than Oregon's offense is their cheerleaders. Very nice!
That smelly duck was all over them too. Bestiality is just unconsionable.
Ducks aren't even mammals. Eeeewwww
We are not even three minutes into the 2nd quarter and Oregon has over 200 yards rushing with Barner already over 100 yards by himself. The Arizona State defense keeps playing its base "OMG MAKE IT STOP" formation for some reason....
EDIT: Skip that, Mariota scores on a keeper. We are now at almost 300 yards rushing for Oregon at 12:20 in the 2nd quarter. Arizona State is now down 36-7.
Mortenson was saying on ESPN Radio today that there will a couple NFL teams that will be making a hard play for Kelly to become their coach. He thinks he will leave this time. Cleveland is one that apparently might be interested. Jacksonville could use some sizzle as well.
The NCAA deal is moving at a glacial pace but notice of allegations should be coming down anytime. They are likely looking a severe beatdown in sanctions. This is Kelly's last season there in all likelihood.
Enjoy the show while it lasts. It is fun to watch. Amazing in some ways.
I has also been discusses that if Brown is out at Texas Kelly could be a front runner there.
Bout damn time that guy leaves
must be very disappointed in your spelling and grammar - not to mention your editing skills
I think that there's a greater likelihood that Kelly gets a show-cause letter than Texas hiring the guy. Oregon used university funds to bribe a "scout" to steer a 5* recruit there, and then they tried to hide it by asking that "scout" to produce some worthless scouting data. Fortunately, that "scout" was stupid and lazy enough to make the data so worthless that nobody with a straight face could say that it was legitimate. This cheating scandal would be much bigger news had it not been for Jerry Sandusky.
Saban might be a candidate as well. I can't object to that either.
This is a fucking clinic
Does it mean that the game is effectively over when we've begun to concentrate on Chuckbox burgers in the ESPN booth?
"This is pretty damn good....oh, yeah, Taylor Kelly slides to make it 2nd and short...."
I want Michigan to do this to sparty on Saturday. Absolute Beatdown!
go for the juggular. I say dont back off until Dantonio smiles
I would rather get the beat down than wear the goatse helmets.
Why did I google that...
A beautiful place indeed.
So, we went through all that apparent indecision so Oregon could punt it away and ASU could get two yards on a run? Someone has been going to the Zook School Of Clock Management, majoring in "What To Do With No Useful Time Left", it seems....
EDIT: Never mind, had him wearing #66 because I am dumb.
Can we turn this into a drinking thread? I'll start:
Eagle rare bourbon on the rocks.
Sounds good to me:
Founders Harvest Ale
I love the harvest ale. We don't get much of it down here in VA though.
Had a Lagunitas Daytime, a Denver Pale Ale, and I am currently sipping on a Stone IPA.
I know this game is a blow out, but I can't not watch the Ducks' offense.
Great beer choices. Plus, nobody told you not to enjoy it. Enjoy it unless we meet them in the rose bowl.
Normally, I'd be in class from 5-9:50, but both my classes were canceled. I probably wouldn't normally be able to relax on a Thursday night.
I love watching Oregon, WVU, Clemson, etc., but they're not Michigan. I enjoy watching them, but they're not a team I have ties to or care about. Michigan is my blood.
Went to Harvest Party for the first time this year, it was even better on tap. I am a big fan of the wet hopped beers, I am hoping that Surly Wet is still available when I head through MN on my way to South Dakota to pheasant hunt.
Agh putting eagle rare on the rocks is a sacrilege. Man up - 1 cube max.
I'll disagree. It's a mediocre bourbon. Bookers... I only drink it neat.
That had to be the easiest $500 you ever made. What a stupid line.
Yes, Bama would beat Oregon, but the matchup would be awesome anyway. A worthy test for the Ducks offense and a worthy test for the Bama defense. Can't ask for much better.
You, my friend, are a smart man. That line seems a bit suspect.
...but Oregon's offense is actually good. I don't think anyone was saying "LSU offense against Alabama's defense is going to be awesome." LSU was not good on offense the first game, and they were terrible in the national championship game. While Oregon's offense may be "simple," they have a lot of wrinkles and they keep an extremely fast pace. They've got some great playmakers too.
one of them very costly, and end up -3 in TOM if they play Alabama. I don't think anyone else is capable of giving Alabama a game this year, but I think Oregon would end up with the closest score and would score the most points.
Please be for real Oregon. A great non-SEC Hope.
I wish we saw more Grice, Marshall, and Foster. I feel like they're the best playmakers on the ASU team and they haven't gotten enough touches. This game was over after Sutton went down though. I just think we're not seeing the best from ASU. Oregon is just a significantly better team though.
Man, Harbaugh just declined safety. Game over at 13-6 SF. Would have been 15-6 if he had.
I think the spread was 7 or 8. LOL
It was the right call, but a lot of people should be freaking upset.
Makes you wonder sometimes if some of these guys know these things in the back of their minds. I know I know, NO, they don't pay attention to Vegas. It's just funny how some of these games end though and how it affects the "spread", Vegas, and lots of money for lots of people!
On a side note, and this annoys me so I'm going to comment, Rece Davis after talking about the Notre Dame schedule throws in the"...We know Michigan isn't who we thought they were..". Yet they're rated No.5 because of wins over teams such as Michigan and Sparty. I know I'm preaching to the choir but good lord listening to the talking heads of college football anymore is just turrible (it extends way beyond them talking down or about the team I cheer for, by the way).
thought this would be us this year?
Still glad to have Hoke
I think they both would've brought similar attributes to the program even if they're two different personalities. Harbaugh is extremely intense while Hoke is more laid back. However, they both have deep Bo connections and believe in a tough running game and a physical defense. I don't think Michigan wouldn't have been that different. They're both great coaches.
I love Hoke unconditionally, but I don't think things would've been drastically different with Harbaugh.
Goal line stand for Oregon.
I am kind of surprised that Oregon has let up. They usually don't take it this easy until they have 60 something on the board.
at the middle beginning of 2nd quarter and still won handily. Ridiculous. If they actually tried hard, they'd have a real shot of scoring over 100 pts.
Lets just hope they make the title game. Otherwise I don't give any B1G team a chance in hell to win the Rose Bowl.
I am not really sure Bama would be a lock to beat Oregon. They are two of the four most prolific cheaters in the country (along with Ohio and USC), and both have spent a lot of money under the table to assemble impressive rosters full of elite athletes.
I think Oregon has the athletes to stay with Bama, and the spread just might produce enough offense for them to spring a surprise.
You're forgetting Auburn on that list -- they're alledgedly over the NFL salary cap this year.
