Oregon put the Beavers in the dirt in the 2017 Civil War game. In all three phases of the game, Oregon looked completely prepared for anything that came at them. Special teams, offense, and defense, dominated all four quarters.
With some of the talk coming from Oregon State athletes leading up to the game, and on the O in Autzen, it wasn’t much of a surprise to see some pettiness from some Duck players, in the best way possible.
Players wore raincoats after the game when shaking hands and even Rob Moseley was making tweets referencing warm jackets that he was wearing in the press box.
Getting chilly up in the press box. Gonna put on my shiny, warm Nike vest. And then later, a puffy, warm Nike coat.— Rob Moseley (@DuckFootball) November 26, 2017
Also, OSU just fumbled.
Even after the game Taggart liked the following tweet
Oregon called a timeout to ice Oregon State's kicker while up 52-7 (and it worked!) https://t.co/Oh2NWVU9Gq— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) November 26, 2017
Ifo Bomaye and I talk about our three favorite under the radar moments. Obviously, Fat Mac, our favorite player on the team, came through big with the following sideline move:

He is a treasure.
It was also great seeing the players have so much fun. Big shoutout to the senior leaders for rebounding so well from last season and keeping the squad together through the rough part of the schedule. Mid-seasons like that can ruin team chemistry and it says a lot how well the team played when the passing attack was back.
After football we move to discussing the basketball team’s performance at the PK80. Pritchard has really stepped up his game but there were stretches that showed a few of the weaknesses the team has. Ifo Bomaye and I talk about the weaknesses and the likelihood they can be solved by conference play.
We wrap up the pod with talk of the coaching carousel (recorded last night so before the Taggart rumor mill caught fire). We talk about the Schiano incident at Tennessee pretty thoroughly and how, that, whole, Tennessee, job, thing, is going. Oregon State, Florida State, and others all are discussed. After today I’m not sure how much of it will be relevant after 36 hours so listen now!
