For the Pac-10 fans it's merely the culmination of a system installed many years ago and tweaked sharply in the last four years. Unfortunately for UO, games are often over by the beginning of the second quarter, even if the score is 22-3. No Pac-10 fan watching last night expected UCLA to come back from that score, although a naive fan across the country might have thought the game was still relatively close. When a game is over by the beginning of the second quarter, that should be boring to any college football fan that isn't wearing green and yellow, not just fans of other Pac-10 teams.
Many fans I've spoke with across the country seem to think otherwise, but hey I'm sure there are fans out there who find it boring as well.
It's funny, Oregon gets knocked when they don't play well, they get knocked when they play okay, and now they're getting knocked because they're playing too well.
Maybe Chip ought to score less and let the other guys score more so the games will be more interesting.
