Civil War - Beavers and Ducks

Recommended Posts

if you want to watch some high caliber football from the BEST conference in the country - tune in tonight and watch Oregon and Oregon State battle it out for the Rose Bowl berth.

 

Tough, tough matchup for the Beavers in Eugene and i think Oregon prevails.

 

NFL quality players all over the field - a few to watch are:

 

OSU QB Canfield and RB/WR Rodgers brothers

OU's Masoli, RB James and TE Dickson

 

Oregon 42

OSU 28

Mike Riley is one of the best Big Game coaches in the country and I think he'll have his kids ready to go. The Beavers in an upset in Eugene.

 

OSU = 37

Oregon = 31

Great game. It'll be very hard for the Buckeyes to shut down that rushing attack.

 

 

yeah - the Ducks will smash OSU - I don't think it will be that close. The thing is , they are pretty much a lock for 40+ not many teams can keep up.

 

Just unfortunate there is no playoff - I don't think anyone would want to play these guys right now and I would put them up against any team in the country.

 

Texas is so overrated

TCU is a VERY talented team......playing with home grown guys that were not good enough to be recruited by Texas, oh and OU has a bunch of them as well!

Great game last night... Not really much defense, but fun to watch nonetheless.

trust me, I would love for Nebraska to upset UT and see TCU get in the NC game - or watch everyone's head explode if we had a Bama/Fla rematch

 

 

thing is the Big 12 is terrible this year, and UT played no one out of conference- we don't know much about this squad at all

 

kinda reminds me of OSU the past few years

You are right, not even the OU win means much this year, UT had a cake walk and even avoided Neb in the regular season as well. A few games back it looked like they were going to get MU or K-State in the Big 12 final, that would have added to their weak schedule this year.............BUT, this is not OSU from a year ago, it is a very good team that can play with anyone. Shipley is incredible, McCoy is good inside or outside of the pocket, I do not think the running game will matter much as it will be tough to run against Bama or UF. They average 43 points a game ( I know, against who) and Bama will not be able to keep up with them offensively, UF would be a closer game.

 

1st things 1st, they need to get by Neb, who has a very good defense before they even begin to worry about the National Championship "Runner Up" Game, winner. Yes....I said that out loud.

Texas is a decent squad, but I am not sold on them, it just seems like they NEVER challenge themselves out of the Big 12 - cupcake central

 

Sagarin has Texas SOS #49, which would be the lowest SOS in both the SEC and Pac 10, by quite a bit, now some of that has to do with the Big 12 being down, but at the same time go on the road and play somebody 1 freaking time.

 

for the BCS debacle, I would love to see Neb upset Texas...... what a mess

First things first, The Civil War was truly fun to watch. I'm not sure though how much of that was great Ducks O or a less than stellar Beaver D.

Texas played one team with any kind of D this year and OU held them to 16 pts. Bama plays D like that so they don't have to "keep up". Texas, assuming they get there, will not score a bunch of points on either of their prospective NC game opponents.

8 of the 12 teams they beat scored less than 16 points against them, I like their chances of scoring over 24 against UF or Bama and not giving up more than 20 = NC

Does Pac-10 have a defense besides USC.

 

I'm not impressed.

:wacko:

from the Big 10 fan

 

fwiw USC has the #6 ranked D in the Pac 10

 

ASU, UA, and Oregon all have legit Ds. The civil war was between 2 high potent offenses my man

Okay, I'll take your word on that.

 

I suppose I caught a couple games of high power offense then.
