You're on this blog, I don't have to tell you who. And yeah, it's early, but it's not like it's going to get bumped off the front page with the board shut down. Plus you know you're watching the pregame anyway.

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.

Go Blue!!

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Wait, what?

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...

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.
