Oregon: State 20November 29, 2014 at 12:01 pm #3795
I hope that the Ducks aren’t looking past this game, already thinking about Arizona next week. I do have confidence in this coaching staff in keeping this team focused on the here and now. Turnovers and mistakes will also play a big part, one way or the other. Like every Civil War in Corn Valley, the Beavs will come out strong to start the game, but they don’t have the horses to keep up. Oregon pulls away in the second half, 53-20.November 29, 2014 at 3:33 pm #3801
Conditions for tonights in-state rivalries. Corvallis, turning colder, but dry, half-time temp of 35.
Pullman, Also turning colder, but dry, and a half-time temp of 20.
The weather should not be a factor in either of these games, but I will go ahead and predict an upset by the Beavs, (35-32),and the Huskies will muscle their way past the Cougs, 44-14. Brian, you still in on our bet? Last chance to opt out. Or we can split the diff, and both donate 30 to Dan. Your call. (If I don’t hear from you by kickoff, we should remain with the original terms 🙂 )November 29, 2014 at 8:02 pm #3806missing_kskdParticipant
Looks like the Beavs are getting spanked.November 29, 2014 at 8:41 pm #3807Listener_PeteParticipant

Yes they did, final score 47-19 OregonNovember 29, 2014 at 9:22 pm #3809
Missed by a total of seven points. 😀 I see the ducks rolling Arizona next week. No serious injuries this week, offense firing on all cylinders. They have to shore up the run defense, and if that happens, ‘Zona doesn’t have a chance.November 30, 2014 at 12:20 pm #3833johnlawParticipant
If Mariota hasn’t wrapped up the Heisman with this years efforts – something is seriously messed up. 36 TD passes and only 2 interceptions this season? Didn’t another QB yesterday in one of the big games throw 3 picks in the first quarter alone? Looking forward to Fridays game against Arizona. And this is from a husky fan. I need one of the t-shirts that says ‘I may live in Oregon, but grew up in Seattle’…November 30, 2014 at 4:48 pm #3853
😉 I need the obverse, being a rabid Duck fan, living in Longview.November 30, 2014 at 5:11 pm #3856
Well, I lived in Eugene as a Husky fan from ’98 to ’05, with a brief timeout in Boise in ’01.
While the Husky-Duck rivalry was in full swing, I never really got into it with anyone. I’m a “white” personality, (don’t like conflict), so that perhaps had something to do with it.
I kept bringing up the cyclical aspects of the rivalry, but nobody cared. Most only go back to the last couple of seasons.
Bottom line, The Huskies still dominate the series history, despite the past decade. OK, YES, I would like some whine with that cheese. 🙂
This rivalry doesn’t even compare to ugliness in some parts of the country. I won’t mention names, but the SEC does come to mind. I think that the fact that so many have connections to each other in both states make it somewhat friendly rivalry, the way it should be.
Back to my point is this being cyclical. I can absolutely guarentee that the see-saw will keep swinging, and WA will become good again, heck, they really are not bad this year, with a current 8-5 record and a decent bowl game ahead.
Peterson inherited Sarkasian’s team. Give him a chance to build HIS team and things will start to change at Montlake.December 2, 2014 at 3:25 am #3954BrianlParticipant
I will honor the bet, Paul.
I’d love to chip in a jazillion dollars to the CAF to hire a defensive coordinator worth a God damn.
This year was unacceptable. I’m glad that the heads of Volero and Breske rolled.December 2, 2014 at 12:29 pm #3963
Thanks Brian, I made my donation Sunday. Hey, it could be worse. Think Colorado.December 3, 2014 at 5:28 am #3981BrianlParticipant
By the end of the year, Colorado would have beat us. I am convinced of that. Coach Mac has them right on the cusp of turning that thing around.
