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. :-b


Maybe Chip ought to score less and let the other guys score more so the games will be more interesting.

After spending 7 weeks watching Florida plod along 1.5 yards at a time, I'd watch Oregon if they were up 130-0.

Unbelievable. I really wish I had been in Columbia tonight. It's amazing seeing Mizzou actually play defense.

Still, next week's game at Nebraska is a lot more important; the winner has a significant advantage as far as making the Big 12 title game from the North. Can't wait.

Auburn and Oregon looking like the two best teams in the country.

Yup, like Lung said, Cam Newton is looking like a man among boys. This is by far his Heisman to lose.

Not compared to those two teams......MSU is a distant third or even fourth behind Boise State. Auburn and Oregon would destroy Michigan State.
