  1. I look forward to seeing many of their weapons chosen in the first round.
  2. Good article. Made me smile, snort, and chuckle. After I read it I thought I should tell you that "Rich Brooks Field" is named after a Beaver, but I see that's already been done. I know, it's just the field and not the whole darned stadium.
  3. Gah, I botched the punch line. That's why I'm too old to do this anymore. Obviously, it should have read Stanford at Washington. If there's a God in Heaven the Trees find a way. Now, if you will pardon me I will go stick my head in the oven.
  4. UCLA @ Colorado: Boo and...Who? Oregon @ Washington State: What do they call that place? The Papoose? Arizona @ California: "In front of a crowd consisting of family members... USC @ Oregon State: My Lord, if ever both teams could lose. Utah @ Arizona State: "Hey! The coaches office is empty! And he's the only one with keys to the stadium! Utah @ Stanford: If there is a God in Heaven, the trees find a way.
  5. Question: If it is there will it be because our players "get it?" Or will it come from the severe decrease in talent across the line of scrimmage? If that's the case all we can hope to be this year is a paper tiger who can thump the EWU's of the world but can't stand and deliver against the good teams still ahead. That's why I'm looking forward to the BYU game. Game One told us that we aren't great, and Game Two can only reveal if we are pretty bad. No margin of victory over the Eagles will tell me a thing., but if we struggle...
  6. I listen to a fair number of college football podcasts during the offseason as I like to put a nickel or dime on a game once the shots are fired. One run by two guys I respect a lot predicted that Sewell would be lost against a passing attack. Alas, it came to pass.
  7. So, you won't generally find a post from me for a day or two after a Duck game. But this time, I'm only getting angrier as the hours go by, so here I come, same day, or I will violate every rule that Charles has, and probably a few he hasn't considered. As I told the Big Fish in an email right after the game, "The next good stop we make in a down that matters will be our first. No hyperbole: That was the worst display of tackling that I have ever seen, at any level of football. I hope there is silence and bowed heads on the flight home." I was worried about Kenny Dillingham. Is Tosh Lupoi what we always thought he was when he was in Montlake? Atrocious and embarrassing. A slap in the face to the team, school, and conference.
  8. I was actually driving through a part of Nebraska a couple of years ago. The whole state has a slight manure smell. I'm not joking. Some of the time you have to roll the window up just to get a little relief.
  9. Absolutely nothing. "It's hard to recruit to Oregon"______Scott Frost. Better ones than you have managed to...putz!
  10. Colorado State has made a significant investment in their football program. Fifteen years ago their stadium only held about 16,000 seats. Now, Canvas Stadium holds 41K. That makes CSU an expansion candidate worth considering. And they have a buggery that does research on insects. What could the new FishDuck humor writer do with that as a target?
  11. Saturday Spoofs sounds vaguely familiar, but I can't remember... Good job, Charles. Your roster is complete.
  12. It might be time to lower our noses a bit and look at these ideas. None of them have the prestige of a USC, but why is UCLA such a catch? Oh yeah, TV screens. Other than that UCLA hasn't been nationally relevant in anything for a long time.
  13. LA, you realize that what you say about Wisconsin could also be said for a November game in the Palouse. At least Wisconsin is the home of Culver's, the finest frozen custard/burger place in the land.
  14. Two Super-Conferences of 20 each teams? I agree with GeotechDuck. My sense of fairness applauded the beginning of NIL. Now???
  15. "to flee the Florida heat and hurricanes." When I wrote The Greatest Road Trip Ever Taken" (available on Amazon) I talked to a couple who had planned for years to retire in Florida. About two weeks in and they had enough of the humidity AND THE BUGS! Oh my goodness the bugs in Florida could have saddles and fly you to South Carolina.
  16. I'll be honest here (I lie everywhere else. Can't trust me as far as you can throw me), I'm worried about Bo. I know that he will make some spectacular plays on the ground and through the air, but I know he has a tendency to make that one, "What the %$%*&% is he thinking?" throw.
  17. (To the healthcare comment from Notalot.) True that. A good hospital within an hour's drive is essential. I get twice monthly infusions for a condition that I have. As far as climate, I'm hearing a lot of comments about places that are HOT, HOT, in the summer. Don't want that. I know some want year-round warmth. Not me.
  18. I visited Mt. Airy as a way to kick off this search for Mayberry. That was twenty years ago. I'm enjoying reading about the international places, but my Mayberry will be within the United States.
  19. I will definitely check out the channel for reviews. We had Seaside in the mix for a while, but there is no direct access to a major airport without a private car. Astoria has an occasional shuttle to PDX, but Astoria doesn't quicken our heart as Seaside does. Rents are a bit steep in Seaside, too.
  20. Well Europe isn't something I have considered, but sure, let me check my passport status. I wonder how the rents would be here?
  21. *sniff* Axel has no idea who I am and yet, somehow, he feels like my son. *sniff*
  22. To me it is a no-brainer that we accept an NIT bid, and do it with a smile on our face. If we don't, we are just like teams that disdain lower-profile bowl games. I have a name for teams like that, and it violates the "So ten-year olds can read it" rule.
  23. I am an unabashed fan of the big redhead as an announcer. I'm not a Blazer fan so I don't swoon over him there, except to say that I've never admired anyone's outlet passes as much. But as an announcer, two thumbs up (and one thumb up for Dick Vitale.)
  24. I've always believed it was terribly arrogant of teams to skip bowl games and NIT berths. We are getting what we deserve. Don't worry, I doubt we will last past the first weekend.
