Man, classic Civil War. Easily the best one I've seen in my lifetime, mostly because of what was on the line, but also because of the level of play both teams. They both left it all out there. I was happy that Oregon was able to shut Quiz down, that was huge, but I was getting very nervous at our inability to put any pressure on Canfield. The guy played great and out-shined Masoli in the passing game. He completed nearly 67% of his passes, had over 300 yards, and did not throw a pick(although there were a couple that were there for the taking.)
LaMichael was fantastic, and those two 4th down conversions at the end were key, we had to have those. There was over 6 minutes left in the game and Oregon was able to bleed it out. There also was a 3rd and 16 with 2 minutes left that was sketchy, LaMichael was able to tear off a 14 yard run though to make it a very manageable 4th and 2. And that earlier 4th down highlight run by Masoli , literally running over a defender in the process, was awesome. There were a lot of big runs in the game but none bigger than that one.
Also it was nice to see Blount get some game time, I really thought Kelly should have given him some time in the previous 2 games but I'm glad he got to get in for the Civil War. Not only did he get in but he had an impact, good for him.
The Beavers played a fantastic game, I know I like to talk smack a lot, but it's more of a love/hate thing. I have nothing but the utmost respect for OSU. They easily played well enough to win that game. I'm just happy there weren't any controversial calls, and that the Ducks WON the game.
It's too bad Tim Clark did in fact break his leg and will miss out on the Beavers bowl game.
