You embarrassed yourselves, your conference, and the color of urine.

You may well beat us next year, but we no longer fear you, Oregon. You've become soft and shapeless ever since a certain hard-ass offensive coordinator left Eugene. For a while we bought into the hype that Oregon was the Next Dominant Power; that all those Nike-bucks would buy your way into the BCS every other year. A new paradigm, they called it (and they don't know jack).

But then there was the Pornstar's Divorce, and the Uniform Changes, and the Failed Corporate Mascot, and the Fabulous Goodies for Recruits, and what do you have to show for all of it? Not much. You've sold your soul, but for what? No bowl wins. A losing record against the Beavers. Mediocrity. Which is exactly what you had before all of Phil Knight's madness, for less than half the cost.

And besides, you looked much better back then.

I was hoping for a decent Pac-10 performance in our bowl games, but alas, that dream is very much dead. Way to go, Oregon. I can't believe they were ranked as high as #11 at one point. Our blowout win against them really destroyed their morale and with it their season.

Oregon definitely looked better in their old Disney digs--do they have to pay royalties to Walt and Co. for using Donald Duck as their mascot?--than in their Nike forward fashion. (I know Tedford is obsessed with copying everything that is Team Eugene, but any chance the Bears will go back to sporting Russell gear?)

Oregon is a corrupt, decaying empire. I hope we go no further than the gold jerseys. Things are too plush up there.

The gold jerseys worried me a little bit too. I'm going to be pissed if Cal does anything as stupid as Oregon with their unis. Can you imagine a pee colored Cal helmet with flames? Makes me ill to think about it.
