Hopefully the Ducks don't choke again. The Ducks need to win this game because in the past they have never been able to win a national championship or win a rose bowl. If the Ducks don't beat Auburn then the "O" on the Ducks helmet will continue to stand for 0 national championships and 0 rose bowl wins. If the Ducks do beat Auburn then I can dismiss and forget about the fact that Oregon has never won a rose bowl game. Oregon always chokes and can never win the big game or close the deal and finish strong. The only time Oregon ever really finished a season good was when the Ducks beat Colorado in the Fiesta Bowl back when they had Joey Harrington. That was the best they have ever done and the only time they have ever actually finished a season strong instead of just getting duck fans all excited and then going out and finishing the season by getting beat once again. So if I was an Oregon fan I would try and be quiet until my team actually won a national championship or a rose bowl and for once actually had a good season from start to finish. Key word there being finish. The Ducks need to for once finish the season strong. Just flirting with a national championship or just flirting with a rose bowl victory is not good enough. You have to actually win those games to be considered special and great. Atleast Oregon State won a National Championship in Baseball and can say that they have actually finished a season strong and closed the deal with something. I did not attend Oregon State so please don't think that. I attended and graduated from the University of Florida. So I am a Florida Gator.

Northfield MN, a town of about 17,000 with two liberal arts colleges (Carleton and St. Olaf), and tons of great restaurants and shops for such a small town.

AGuyFromCleveland18 - Way to be original. I had never even heard of those schools. Thanks for your take.

It ain't where you're from but where you're at...Oregon football was the crappy underachievers of the Pac-10 for a long time. It really hasn't been until the last decade the Ducks have had teams that were even close to contention for a national championship. That being said, only a fool would dismiss Oregon's season this year...They've been one of the most offensively dominant teams in recent college football history. Yeah, the Gators have won 3 championships--all in the last 15 years, but this season you went 7-5. Have fun in the Outback Bowl!

Anyways, Eugene is great college town in the west. Oregon State won a baseball championship, but unfortunately no one cares about college baseball. Pullman, Washington is a boring town for future wheat farmers who want a college education. And yes the Ducks have won a Rose Bowl---back in 1917...
