FWIW, I'm wondering where Acuda or Ducky are. I'd have thought they'd be hootin n hollerin about the Ducks, who look damn near unstoppable this year.
To be honest, as a Huge Duck fan, Im guarded this year. This is the best team Ive EVER seen playing in Eugene, but I said the same thing back a few years back when Auburn broke my heart, then USC (california version) broke my heart, then Stanford last year. Yeah we want Bama but Ill wait until its Jan before Im going to get all excited this year.

8 teams in the top 25?

What happened to all the posters that said take the top 2 or 3 teams out of the SEC and you have very weak teams left ?

If Oregon Gets there...IF...we will tear Bama a new one. Wouldn't have last year most likely, but this years Tide looks beatable to me.

Oregon fans and others have been saying that since 2008. This is the same program who lost to Auburn and they had the worst defense in BCS title game history.

And Bama is the same program who lost to Utah. Seriously though, that Auburn loss was 3 years ago. What is the statute of limitations these days? Seems the Boise State fans finally got a clue and realized that their wins over us were 235 years ago. There is not a single Duck starter who even played in the NC game. Heck, most of them were still in high school. And really? Aubie beat you. Don't talk about a team losing when your team did the exact same. Guess will see what happens if Oregon meets Bama in the Natty.

Ok so that was a different team and a different coach, so ill give a pass there. Im just sick of hearing about how Oregon is better than Bama and how Bama would lose to Oregon, etc, etc.

No I get it. I just smile when I hear my fellow Ducks spout off that we would roll Bama. I love hearing it, but come on, Bama has won so much and we have struggled against the better SEC teams. Our talent level is far superior to the Natty team, the OSU Rose Bowl team and maybe even last year's Fiesta Bowl team, but we still have some work to do. Our OL is not dominant in the run game and our LBs are still young. I still think at this point Bama would beat us. But, the OL has time to gel, and the LBs continue to get better. If those happen I think it we may be pretty darn good. I hope we get the opportunity to play y'all.

Well since they had the worst in BCS Title game history, what happened to the rest of you wonderful SEC that didn't make it to the Natty. You would have thought that the mighty SEC would have teams that would have outscored them...but you didn't, did you?
