The Wall Street Journal Takes a Stopwatch to Oregon

Oregon Ducks

News
If you have a couple minutes to kill this morning at work, there's an interesting read for college football fans in the Wall Street Journal. The Journal clocked how long it takes Oregon and other top-ranked football schools between plays on offense. And the paper found the Ducks, heading into this week's game against USC, aren't the fastest-operating team with an average time between plays of about ...   More

Do You Cheer for Both UO and OSU? Me Neither. But If You Do ...


News
As Oregon and Oregon State football fans pretend to get work done (not me, of course) while gearing up the new season, there's a new apparel company called Oregon Platypus that caters to a class of Oregonian I've never understood. The business, which takes its name from the animal that has features of both a duck and beaver, sells shirts, hoodies and other items that blend the schools' colors ...   More

The Latest in Halloween Gear For Autzen Stadium This Saturday


News
As my fellow Oregon football fans and I return to work still giddy off Saturday's rout of Washington (six straight over the Huskies is a mind-bending experience for those of us old enough to remember the bad old days), there's apparently a new fashion statement to be made when USC comes to Autzen Stadium this Saturday. As if there weren't enough hype building for this nationally televised game ...   More

Civil War: A Few Final Pregame Thoughts


News
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


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). Bottom line: this is a childish matter that I can't put away and the Ducks' Rose ...   More

Pac-10 Fans Have Spoken, And They Say Ducks Fans Suck


News
Oregon football appears to be proof that winning doesn't breed humility. A recent fan survey by Sports Illustrated ranks Pacific-10 Conference schools top-to-bottom in several categories relating to the fan experience. The Ducks claimed the top spot in only one category, the dubious "rudest fans" category. It's a hard result to dispute, considering the results: 26.2 percent of those surveyed ...   More

Ducks Fans Aren't The Only Ones Making Video Music Love


News
I break for a moment from my Rose Bowl myopia to pay homage to another group of fans in Oregon paying homage to its college football team. In the spirit of this well-chronicled video by Ducks students, [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hrjpe1VCNg[/youtube] there's now this rap by Linfield fans for their 'Cats: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3XFCVB0O74&feature=player_embedded[/youtube] Credit ...   More

Trail Blazers, Major League Soccer and Ducks


News
Three depressing thoughts from the world of sports in the last coupla days: 1) Here's something to take your mind off the Trail Blazers' epic collapse last night against Utah: Go watch Sonicsgate, as I did Saturday night (thanks to BAM: the Beer and Movie Fest). The story of how a market like Seattle lost the Sonics should scare the hell out of Blazers fans when they think about the Blazers' ...   More
