Do Two Good Exhibition Games For Greg Oden Mean Anything?


News
Every flash of progress by Greg Oden sends me and other fans into speculating that the Trail Blazers center is finally poised to become a big contributor.

One Ducks Fan's View of Chip Kelly's Upcoming Blount Decision


News

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


News
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).
