People need to understand that what happened eight games ago in Eugene was a game between two totally different teams, personnel-wise and injury-wise. Assignments may now be different, and some schemes may be different as well. Coaches can only do so much with the talents and skills of the student-athletes they have available to them.

Both the Ducks and the Wildcats have grown significantly since then, and they may see two completely different teams on the field at the Pac-12 Championship. It's doubtful that the same exact things will happen as the game develops. The media, Las Vegas, coaches and fans all may believe a certain way, but two teams still have to come together and play the game on the field!

Good Luck Cats! Looking forward to an injury-free game. Although, I am feeling confident, I am still quite amped up and ready to get this thing going.


Go Ducks!

you are right colt. both teams have developed over the season, and both teams are going to be loaded for bear. in the end however for arizona, i dont think it will matter, win or lose, except that they would be pac12 champions. i think the cats are going to the fiesta bowl(best fit of the three projected(peach, cotton, fiesta)) this year. too much has to happen for the cats to get into the playoffs, let alone the rose bowl.

Absolutely horrific tackling by the cats so far.

give oregon credit, they came to win the game tonight. if this game doesnt cement the heisman trophy for mariota, then nothing will.

on the plus side, rich rod is staying at arizona.

Obviously, I'm biased for the Pac-12 and its athletes, coaches and fans! Mariota is an exceptional athlete, and a person of excellent character. In my biased opinion, he definitely should be considered the front runner for the Heisman!

I'm an SEC football fan, but I'm just gonna come out and say: Oregon's the best team in the country. There's just no doubt about that in my mind anymore. This is not a 'soft' Oregon team like a lot of people in Dixie or Big 10 country might think; the Ducks have become a more physical and imposing team on the lines. What I predicted two or three years ago is beginning to take shape: Oregon's offensive and defensive lines have gone jumbo. Everyone talks about Oregon's speed, and they've got that for sure, but they've got muscle in the trenches anymore. This isn't the same team that got bullied by Ohio State and LSU a few seasons ago.

and beyond their increased physicality, they have also increased their team speed substantially as well, along with their team discipline. so yes, bama, florida st, and TCU better be on their toes, and on their game if/when they play oregon.
