But, I wish we wore the old school colors more often. Frankly, we can win pink for all I care. I want to win another darn BCS bowl...preferable the NC!

Duck colors are always fun to watch. I like seeing a new uniform every game...

My least favorite was the yellow uniforms with green backing it up:


These are my favorite Oregon duck uniforms:

Being that there are arrest warrants out now, I would say your team lucks out by playing a gimpy LSU team missing these 4 players including star QB Jefferson. You can add that Russell Shepard, i.e. their best receiver, has been suspended for that game too. If you lose now, your program looks that much worse.

Without those starters UO is going to take them to the woodshed.

Agreed. It is a lose/lose situation.

I think Oregon's gonna put the hurt to LSU. If they don't, then Oregon's got some explaining to do.

I'm an LSU fan, but ever since moving to the NW I've come to like Oregon. It's really too bad that LSU's players were so freakin stupid to do this. I was looking forward to a classic matchup. Now even if Oregon wins, people will always wonder, which is not fair to Oregon. They've got a great team, and their coaching is second to none.

There will still be a great matchup with the Ducks against the Furd.

And of course you can't overlook the rivalry games against Udub and the Beavs. More often than not those games are always fun as long as the talent isn't lopsided.

Looking forward to Virginia having a good start. We can win six games this year, if we do is TBD but it's possible.

I root for the pack of wolves that represent North Carolina State University. And quite frankly I have no clue what to expect from them this year. We had a good season last year but usually whenever we have a good season or finish the year on a good note the next year we disappoint.

For starters Russell Wilson transferred to Wisconsin so that's a big loss. We also no longer have LB Nate Irving as he now plays for the Denver Broncos. We already have been bitten by the injury bug which somehow didn't come around much last season.

Our starting QB Mike Glennon was a top 3 QB recruit in his class of 2008 in the ESPN top 150 but other than garbage time he really hasn't had a chance to play. He'll have his chance to make a good impression this season.

Anyways good luck to all your teams and may the best team win

They'll be either third or foruth in the Division if Clemson actually puts something together.

Should make a bowl game.

I'm interested in what those Tar Heels are gonna do. Frankly I doubt Withers gets the head job only because that rarely happens. Coordinators are such for a reason unless they're wooed by other schools.

If they're smart they'll get someone from the CAA.

I don't think Virginia will beat them this year but hey weirder things have happened.
