Game Preview: Oregon State vs #12 Oregon

Ducks play Beavers in the Civil War for dignity, Platypus


The oldest rivalry on the west coats finds #12 Oregon (9-2) and Oregon State (6-5) in a familiar position in the 117th iteration of the Civil War: Coming off of bad losses. The Ducks have won five straight in the series and hold a 14-game lead in it overall, but they have lost their final game before the Civil War in each of the past three seasons. The difference is that this time, it wasn't the Ducks' ...   More

Almost Live: Oregon vs Oregon State

Ducks aim to lick, pound, [insert sexual verb] Beavers in the Civil War


The attitude throughout the Oregon community has been muted over the past week. The braggadocio that once defined the fanbase has given way stunned, mildly appalled melancholy. But as fun as it was wallowing in self-pity after the Cardinal’s upset last Saturday, the time has come to move on. We’ve a war to prepare for.  There are plenty easterners, Southrons, and history books that will try ...   More

A Few Reasons I'm Nervous This Civil War Eve

There is no logical reason that Oregon State should beat Oregon tomorrow in Corvallis and derail the Ducks' hope of playing in the national championship Jan. 10. Oregon has an 11-0 record. Oregon State has been up and down en route to its 5-6 record, including last Saturday's 38-0 drubbing at Stanford. But as any sports fan will tell you, logic doesn't always necessary show up at the game. ...   More

Sri Lanka Civil War: What Medical Teams International Is Doing and How You Can Help

After more than 25 years of fighting, the civil war in Sri Lanka is predicted to end within months. Yet the situation may get far worse first as the UN reports some 50,000 civilians are pinned between the Tamil Tiger rebels and Sri Lanka's army in a less than four-mile stretch of coastline still held by the Tigers. Medical Teams International is predicting the worst while preparing for it. The ...   More

Civil War: Let The Marketing Begin

There will be plenty of time between now and the Dec. 3 Civil War for OSU and Oregon fanatics to hash out every possible angle of what could happen on the field. (As for work, yeah whatever.) But marketing waits for nobody, and thus from the folks who brought you the latest in Halloween night wear at Autzen Stadium come a new line of "must-wear items" for next week's nationally televised game ...   More

Civil War: A Few Final Pregame Thoughts

Last year in the pre-Civil War run-up I wondered whether Oregon had a prayer of beating OSU in Corvallis with a Rose Bowl berth at stake for the Beavers. Happily for me and my fellow Ducks fans, Oregon proved to have more than a prayer and won a game for the ages. But now as sports karma would have it, this year's game has even more at stake with a Rose Bowl on the line for both teams for the ...   More

Eleven Things I Will Always Remember From Being in Autzen Stadium on Dec. 3

My voice is hoarse, and my 44-year-old joints ache —both from standing in the cold for 3 1-2 hours last night and from repeatedly bear-hugging family, friends and longtime seatmates in Section 37 of Autzen Stadium— as one group of football-playing strangers (Oregon) beat another group (Oregon State). Bottom line: this is a childish matter that I can't put away and the Ducks' Rose ...   More
