Oregon Becoming More Than Just Marcus Mariota

There was only one disappointing moment for Oregon on Saturday. Before the Ducks took the field, when everyone was looking at the Autzen Stadium scoreboard to see the traditional playing of the “The Pick.” “The Pick,” as we know it, never played. Sure, part of Jerry Allen’s iconic call blasted out of the end-zone speakers, […]

Points Of Emphasis Neutering NFL Pass Defenses

Seattle Seahawks fans are intimately aware of just how far the team’s pass defense has fallen. It was in the conversation for best secondaries of all-time, and combined with a fierce pass rush to neutralize even the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. No longer. They are allowing a staggering 103.7 opponent passer rating after leading […]

Oregon Duck Football And The Money Game

By any standards, The Wall Street Journal is a go-to source for money matters. What happens when they start looking at money spent on college football? It’s still money, so what’s not to trust? Last week the WSJ produced a list of football spending by the top ten ranked teams. By now you know Oregon […]

MLB: World Series-Practice Day

The Silly Things You’ll Hear – A World Series Preview

Tonight the World Series between the Cinderella darlings, the Kansas City Royals, and the champions of even years, the San Francisco Giants, begins in Kansas City with coverage on FOX. While the viewers will finally be spared the inanity of Tim McCarver’s “baseball truisms” since he mercifully retired last year, you can bet that Joe […]

Ridley’s College Football Rankings – Week Eight

Where do I start after an action-packed weekend? Do I go with the undressing that West Virginia gave Baylor, effectively ending the Big 12’s shot at a national title? Do I talk about Alabama ending any and all talk of Kenny “No Thrill” Hill (Kenny “One Hill Wonder” is still my personal favorite) being the […]

NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Portland Trail Blazers

Will The Portland Trail Blazers Have A “Top-Ten Defense” This Season?

During this time of year for teams in the NBA, each team sets a few goals for each player, as well as for the team overall. For the Portland Trail Blazers’ individual players, this ranged from learning to shoot three-point shots better (LaMarcus Aldridge, who said he’s extended his range comfortably to the corners) to […]

The Seattle Fauxhawks Or The Seattle Newhawks?

If you have any doubt that the 2014 Seattle Seahawks barely resemble the 2013 Seahawks, consider this: Would the 2014 version have been capable of wasting an historic performance by quarterback Russell Wilson? Don’t bother answering; I’m not Harvin any of it. As you have probably heard, the Seahawks, in their 26 – 28 road […]

MLS: Portland Timbers at Real Salt Lake

Portland Timbers Get Back To Square One In Crazy Final Home Game

In many ways, it felt like the 2014 Portland Timbers’ home season was ending just how it started all the way back on March 8th against the Philadelphia Union. There was a terrific tifo display from the Timbers Army pregame, a light, but deceivingly persistent rain, and the home team in their throwback green and […]

This includes an impressive formation called Saddle Mountain, appropriately named due to its shape by Lieutinent Charles Wilkes, who led an expedition to the Oregon Coast in 1841. Saddle Mountain, part of the Oregon Coastal Range, is the […]

It’s Time For The Oregon Ducks To Find Their Spirit

Oregon got well against UCLA last Saturday. The Ducks thought they were in trouble last week, but then they got a good long look at the Bruins and decided that they’d be just okay. 42-30 was the final score, but this game was over five minutes into the third quarter. UCLA’s only victory against Oregon […]
