Happy Happy I Hate Washington Day! It's finally here! And we still have many hours until football. So here's a bit of quack to get you through the next few hours
- Ken Woody looks at what a team must do coming out of a bye week to be successful. He says that teams must keep the gameplan simple, and not get caught up with having extra prep time. Keep a lookout for how the defense looks early. If they look confused like they did against BSU, things could get a bit messy.
- The Husky players don't seem to be taking the attitude of UW Dawg Pound's John Berkowitz, and seem to be putting some real hatred into the rivalry. That's what five victories in a row will do. In some ways it's fun to have this rivalry have some meaning. In other ways, it's not.
- Rob Moseley talks about the key to the game, whether or not Oregon will be "caught napping." But after the Boise State game, I just don't see these Ducks overlooking anyone. As Chip says, every game is a season, and I think the players have taken that to heart.
Lastly, a video clip to get you excited. We're gonna take a deviation from Takimoto's party guide and go back to when Oregon football was first becoming relevant again. While "The Pick" put Oregon football on the map for good, Terry Obee's "49 Special" guaranteed a spot in Oregon history for the Bill Musgrave led teams, and helped propel the Ducks the next year to their first bowl game in 26 years.
