Oregon Blowout Highlights Week 5 of College Football Season

oregon ducksFive weeks into the college football season and for those of us holding out hope for a BCS-busting team, the picture got a little darker. Here were the highlights from the week:

1) Oregon runs past Boise Down 21-3 to Stanford in the first quarter is not a place many teams want to be, but the Oregon Ducks took the setback in stride, turned their high-octane offense up a notch, and blew past the ninth-ranked Cardinal 52-31. As a result, the Ducks moved up to third in the coaches poll, passing Boise State, which overwhelmed New Mexico State 59-0. Even as WAC mate Nevada continues to rise (#23) in the polls, Boise likely now needs a second unbeaten team to lose to make the national title game. Read the rest of this entry »



OU/Texas Rivalry Leads College Football Excitement This Weekend

texas longhornsConference play enters full swing, and there’s a spate of great games as we enter Week 5. So many in fact, that this week will highlight four games:

1. #13 Stanford at #4 Oregon Eugene will be rocking when the Cardinals come into town. Oregon leads the nation in scoring at nearly 58 points per game, but their performance against Arizona State last week raises some significant questions about the defense. The Ducks allowed a staggering 597 yards against the Sun Devils but escaped thanks to seven turnovers. Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck is much better than Steven Threet of ASU, so don’t expect the Cardinal to be quite so giving. Luck threw for 251 and no picks in last year’s contest, won 51-42 by Stanford. On the road, this would be a massive statement win for the Stanford. Read the rest of this entry »



College Football Week 4 Review: Boise Passes Test, But Can They Get Help?

Sugar Ray LeonardWith the fourth week of college football behind us, here are the biggest stories from the weekend:

1. Boise Still Rolling: Boise State got their first taste of the ESPN College Gameday crew and did not disappoint, surviving several special teams mistakes and beating Oregon State 37-24. The Broncos remain third in the coaches’ poll, and closed their gap with #2 Ohio State ever so slightly. They still need either the Buckeyes or Alabama to lose at least once, but if those teams trip up, Boise could slide into one of the top two spots.

However, the biggest boost to the Broncos may be the emergence of the Nevada Wolfpack in the Top 25. Nevada is 4-0, ranked for the first time since 1948, and Colin Kapernick’s squad has a good shot at being 11-0 when they host Boise on November 26.

2. Tide Survives: Alabama almost relinquished the top spot in the polls against Arkansas, but down 20-7 in the third quarter at SEC rival Arkansas, the Crimson Tide showed why they’re the defending national champions, scoring the final 17 points, including the game-winning touchdown run by Mark Ingram with 3:18 to go. The Alabama defense also made a big statement, allowing just three points in the second half and intercepting Razorback quarterback Ryan Mallett three times. Read the rest of this entry »



University of Oregon Students Riot in Local Neighborhood

cruzerA group of 400 rioters stormed a neighborhood street in Eugene, Oregon on September 24, 2010. Some of the rioters were college students from the University of Oregon.

The riot occurred in the West University neighborhood. Many students live in this area and have “very large houses with basements (that) can hold a couple hundred people each,” according to the Eugene police spokesman Doug Mozan.

It seems that a party got out of hand, and the drunken party-ers spilled out of the house and into the streets. Once in the neighborhood streets, they began throwing bottles at officers, breaking car windows, and tearing down street signs.

These groups tend to “engage in group-think. It was like a flash mob, almost,” Mozan said. This means that if one person says the group should riot, this one person could influence everyone else to do so. Read the rest of this entry »



Pants Optional for University of Oregon’s Frisbee Team

frisbeeIn the world of sports, there are rules to be followed.  These rules determine the playing surface, outline scoring methods, and even describe suitable uniforms. These rules are followed to allow for participation in a sporting event. In the case of the University of Oregon’s Ultimate Frisbee team, they decided to follow their own set of rules — no pants, no problem.

During a match at Oregon State University in Corvallis, five members of the University of Oregon’s team decided playing without pants or underwear would be a good decision. The ultimate Frisbee team was on probation at the time for actions involving underage drinking and noise violations toward the end of 2008. Read the rest of this entry »
