Well, At Least Nobody Can Say the Oregon Ducks Are Punchless

Blount v. Hout

The above screen capture (taken from YouTube taking from ESPN) shows Oregon tailback LeGarrette Blount making his largest forward progress of the night.

UPDATE, 5:15 pm: It took 15 hours, but John Canzano did indeed blame us all. "How much of this is about entitlement?" he asked on the Bald Faced Truth radio show, during his second hour discussing LeGarrette Blount's season-long suspension. "Is the school at fault? Are we all at fault? I'm not sure." Honestly, it's a wonder that man can get out of bed in the morning, what with carrying the weight of our sins.

UPDATE, 2:05 pm: James Pitkin has the word from Eugene: LeGarrette Blount has played his last game as a Duck. Rarely has an Oregon season imploded so quickly.

So the Ducks' season-opening loss to Boise State was almost entirely forgettable, but the post-game pleasantries with the opposition, the opposition's fans, teammates, nearby security guards... well, that was all pretty memorable, and raises some pressing questions. Such as: How long will LeGarrette Blount be suspended? Was this his last game as a Duck? What did Byron Hout and the Broncos' fans say to incite him to such rage? Was race a factor? (Maybe that's undue speculation and not germane and no excuse for his actions and blah blah blah, but on the other hand? It's Idaho.) Who will John Canzano blame? (All of us? Probably all of us.) Is this the end of the white jerseys?


We don't have any answers. George's Corner Tavern had no answers, either, though the "It's Idaho" theory received early support. We leave this discussion in your capable hands.
