    ... What does black look like on television?  Just part of the stadium without lighting...

     

    Wear Yellow!

    Yes, black make it look as if no one is in the stands!

    There is a security guard on-duty there and it's well outside of any densely populated area.  It's a safe place to park and a very short walk to the shuttles busses.  Oh, and be prepared to pay the $5 shuttle fee/person with your smart phone, if you have one.  If you don't - I don't know what to tell you, they can't accept cash.

     

    ...

    For those over 65, however, the shuttle bus is free!

    Good!  Maybe our receivers will be able to see the ball coming at 'em and make the catch....

     

    (thanks for the updates, we're driving out in a couple hours)

    You;re welcome and have a safe drive!

     

    Lowell must be getting the brunt of the smoke now--it is up to a whopping 588 there! (While at Autzen it has already dropped a bit again down to 144.)

  4. Right now at Autzen it is 151: "Some members of the general public may experience health effects with 24 hours of exposure; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects."

     

    You can keep track at Purple Air. Just check the circle a little to the left of the intersection of I-5 and 126--that will be Autzen.

    Too bad. I love the black uniforms.

     

    A compromise? . . . Yellow uniforms with black helmets, please?

     

    Just thought of something else. The Ducks should have a night similar to Penn State's "White Out" night game. The Ducks could do it with yellow every year and call it Yellow Highlight Night, or just Highlight Night.

    I think they've switched the color to black for next week's game.

     

    I like the idea of Yellow Highlight Night. Makes much more sense than Can't See Anyone in the Stands Black Out Night.

     

    Right now according to Purple Air the air quality at Autzen is 100, which is much better than the 155 up the road from my house.

    We might be getting hit with the smoke from the Cedar Creek Fire. But it looks like the wind is supposed to move back to a more West to East direction later in the evening.

     

    Could be a lot like the Fresno State game.

    I am really hoping and crossing my fingers that we won't get hit with that smoke! Of course, I'm also hoping it won't get as hot as forecast, but not sure the weather spirits pay any attention to me.

    Yep, and there are tasty beverages besides!

     

    We love yellow in the crowds!  I sent a special email out as I'm having two photographers at this game shooting...just because it is going to be a yellow background.  It is the best.

    I agree--yellow is best, especially for a game where it will be dark in the second half!

    Are they expecting strong winds in Eugene through Saturday? Game is late in the day so thats helpful.

    The forecast is for strong winds, but the winds might be coming from the East, and in that case they will be hot.

     

    I've got a frozen bottle of water that I'll bring. Did that a few years ago when it was a really hot day and that  helped a lot.

    Does anyone know for certain what the covid 19 policy is for attending games in Autzen Stadium this year?  Will proof of vaccination be required for entry, etc?

    When I talked to someone at the ticket office I asked about that and was told there are no covid restrictions this year.

     

    As for myself I'll probably wear a mask on the shuttle bus and when I visit the restroom, but not when I'm seated at the stadium.  🙂

    Ga has a knack for traveling in hordes and literally taking over an opponents stadium. Even happed at ND a few years ago. Don’t know your stadium size but there would be 30-40-50k fans there. Saw Oregon play along time ago in Athens..don’t remember the year. It was a good game. But yeah the Dogs can eat on the road, too. 

     

    Well, Autzen holds about 60,000 with standing room only, and there are lots of Duck season ticket holders, and local folks would be enthusiastic and amazed if GA (or most any SEC team) would travel here for a game, so there probably would not be 30,000-50,000 tickets available for GA fans. 🙂

    The future of our program sits with Thompson and Butterfield....

     

     

    Maybe. Or maybe it sits with one of the  other two QBs on the team (Sanders or Van Dyne), or a player yet to be recruited (a longer wait in that case, but maybe that's how it will be).

    I disagree with the premise of this article. I disagree with likening this game to a payout game. And I wholeheartedly disagree that Oregons journey the past couple decades wasn't worth it.

     

    Offensively Oregon made plays, moved the ball to Georgia's side of the field several times. Got into the redzone several times. Just couldn't get into the endzone. 

     

    ....

     

    The defense has me concerned. The secondary was lit up, linebackers were non existent,  and tackling was atrocious. Could have a lot to do with UGA scheme and talent. I suspect not entirely, got to fix that coach.

     

    Plus, GA mostly likely knew what the Duck defense was going to do on every play, which gave them at least a bit of an advantage.
