All Hail The King – Marcus Mariota

Is Marcus Mariota really the king? He’d never say so, but until the next college football player completes the individual awards sweep like he did, he’s royalty. What should the king do now that’s he’s been coronated? The easy answer is beat Florida State then whoever comes out of the Ohio State v Alabama semi-final. […]

Oregon Ducks Fly In Cleaner Air

The College Football Playoffs’ final four works out for Oregon as long as the past stays in the closet. They lost to the SEC before, Auburn and LSU in a short 2011 time frame? Lock that door. Lost to Ohio State in the 2010 Rose Bowl? Nail it shut. Oregon comes in clean on January […]

For The Oregon Ducks, Arizona Is Just Step One

But don’t let anyone fool you. For the Ducks, this title game is not about revenge. It’s about a championship. It’s a […]

Oregon, Oregon State Volleyball December Madness Is Coming

About 24 hours before Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota turned Reser Stadium into his own personal playground, another Civil War took place. The No. 13 ranked Oregon volleyball team visited Gill Coliseum in the last game of the year, only to be firmly beaten in four sets by a determined Beaver squad. This snapped a […]

The Marcus Mariota Heisman

“West of the Mississippi.” The words describe another planet, an alien land to our Eastern brothers and sisters who couldn’t find Oregon if you dropped them off on Vancouver’s Waterfront Renaissance Trailand pointed across the Columbia River. Dear Eastie, that’s not California over there. Oregon State’s Terry Baker won the first Heisman awarded a player west […]
