Let's Be Honest

Duck fan. Oregon alum. 1998.

I'm all about being honest with myself and pulling off these rose colored glasses. In the proverbial "Biggest Game Of The Year" scenario, similar to what we saw last night, this team/school is terrible and an embarrassment.

2013: Blown out by Stanford on the road, in spite of a close score.

2012: Outclassed by Stanford at home, in a sense, beaten by a bad block and weak legged kicker. Laughing stock because we've got all these cool, fancy pieces and can't execute a fundamental.

2011: Beaten by LSU (big boy pants don't fit) and then lose to USC at home (see 2012, Stanford).

2010: Championship game. Beat ourselves (after which, a whole host of idiots wore 12-0 shirts -- the essence of idiotic fandom).

2009: Outclassed by Boise State, and by outclassed I mean, hammered to a pulp by a team which we couldn't even get off the field in a respectable way against.

This isn't a trend I'm pleased with. Oregon fans (just like most NW sports fans) are content to eat their orange slices and act like another Holliday Bowl is great. FACT: In football you are defined by "Biggest Game Of The Year" and by that standard, we're a loser program.
