Portland Trail Blazers Week Preview – 11/24

The Portland Trail Blazers are making a habit of keeping things interesting this season. Although they whupped on the shorthanded Chicago Bulls on Friday, the other two games they had last week were close games against inferior teams, teams with great chances to win late. The negative view is that the Blazers were sluggishly coasting, […]


The Portland Winterhawks’ True Home – Veterans Memorial Coliseum

This column written by Kyle Martinak of, a partner of Oregon Sports News Every few years there are rumblings in Portland that the most historic building in the Rose Quarter is going to be razed to the ground and replaced by something like a state-of-the-art ballpark or a state-of-the-art shopping center with a state-of-the-art […]

Jared Wright’s NBA Thanksgiving Rankings – 11/21

Thanksgiving. The word usually invokes turkey, mashed potatoes, biscuits, gravy, green bean casserole, and football. The Portland Trail Blazers, however, are always my focus (mostly because it’s a job now), and it’s time for a Turkey Day Edition of NBA Power Rankings. If you haven’t read my preseason rankings, the reasons I don’t do this […]

Beavers Celebration

Breaking Down The Dam Of Inconsistency

Oregon State might be well away from finding the key to ending its ongoing rut. But, after last weekend’s 35-27 upset against (then) No. 6 Arizona State, it seems like the Beavers are at least trying to open the right door. The victory concluded miserable a four-game bender, which hit its lowest point two weeks […]

Brian Hight’s NFL Picks – Week Twelve

Week Eleven Recap Week eleven was brutal and resulted in my worst week of the season. After correctly picking the Miami Dolphins over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night, it was all downhill from there. In the early Sunday games, only one favored team, the San Francisco 49ers, won, much less covered. For the week, […]

Pacific Northwest Hockey For Dummies

Our great region may not have a National Hockey League (NHL) team, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t packed with tons of hockey talent.  While we wait for our knight-in-shining-armor to bring our well-deserving metropolitan areas a team, go and check out the Western Hockey League (WHL) teams.  If you’re like me, every time you […]

Oregon Ducks Are The Champions Of The West

Oregon’s men and women cross country teams made history at the NCAA Regional race this past weekend in Indiana.  For the first time in over 20 years, the Ducks were crowned champions on both the men and women’s side.  It was an exciting day for Oregon Athletics as we saw the women set the pace […]


The Steep Learning Curve

What do you ask of the people who play and coach the sports you love? Do you have an overriding idea of what they should do, or does it go sport by sport? If you look at the big picture you want athletes and coaches to conduct themselves in a similar fashion as you, given […]

Abe Asher’s College Football Picks – Week Thirteen

We’re coming right down to it at the business end of the college football season. There appears to be seven teams still in contention for four playoff spots: Florida State, Oregon, Alabama, Mississippi State, TCU, Baylor, and Ohio State. I, on the other hand, almost certainly won’t win college football pundit of the year – […]

Will The Wide Receivers Keep The Seattle Seahawks In The Playoff Hunt?

After another lackluster week in the passing game, the Seattle Seahawks must continue to learn the hard way after releasing leading receivers Percy Harvin and Golden Tate. And yes, Sidney Rice is gone but you can’t blame the ‘Hawks for that one. So who does that leave us with? Straight up rookies. Yes, yes, I […]
