When Matt Takimoto isn't comparing Oregon football players to Impressionist painters and Velvet Underground songs, or playing around with MSPaint, he is a graduate student in elementary education at UC-Berkeley. He started reading Faulkner's "The Sound and the Fury" in 2003, but can't seem to find the time to finish it, choosing instead to read "The Phantom Tollbooth" over and over again. He likes Irish whisky and sushi, hates wet socks and high places, and still can't understand why Ben Savage hasn't parlayed "Boy Meets World" into a Ryan Gosling-esque movie career.

Tako doesn’t want Oregon to lose to Washington State. But here’s why it might be good in the long run if they do.
Oregon has never played 59 different FBS teams in football. Tako ranks them all.
Tako is back with a best case and worst case scenario for Oregon's 2016 season. You won't like the worst case.
Tako crawls out of his cave of solitude to give this whole blogging thing just one more shot.
Oregon blows the biggest lead in bowl history, and provides a perfect summary for this 2015 season.
No better time to recap the streak than the week before it might end.
