Since January, we've been saying that it would be a one-game regular season. That one game is here. Ten in a row over WashingTEN was nice. UCLA? Tennessee? Nice little wins. But this is the one we all want. This one is personal.
Of course, it is Thursday. You going to get any work done today? Me neither.
Onto the Quack:
- SB Nation alumnus and SI writer Martin Rickman takes a look at the Oregon offense, and whether they can provide more firepower than they did in last year's game. Some doofus Duck blogger gives a quote at the end.
- The Oregonian's Andrew Greif takes a look at the game. One thing I had forgotten: Wade Keliikipi didn't play in last year's contest, leaving a gaping hole in the middle of Oregon's defensive line. Keliikipi has the opportunity to make it a really long night for Tyler Gaffney and the Stanford running game.
- Ted Miller gives Nick Aliotti and the defense some pub. Remember when some dumbass blogger wanted Aliotti fired? You don't? That blogger was a total goat.
- Byron Marshall has stepped up and become a really, really solid back.
- A new episode of the Solid Verbal should help hold you over until kickoff. If you're into hoops, go ahead and download the ATQ Podcast as well.
- Bill Connolly asks if between Stanford-Oregon and Baylor Oklahoma, if this might be college football's biggest Thursday ever.
That's all I've got for today. What are your score predictions for tonight? Put 'em in the comments. GO DUCKS!
