"The team gets in the same formation group, you can't substitute defensive players, you go on a 14-, 16-, 18-play drive and they're snapping the ball as fast as you can go and you look out there and all your players are walking around and can't even get lined up. That's when guys have a much greater chance of getting hurt when they're not ready to play."

"I just think there's got to be some sense of fairness in terms of asking is this what we want football to be?"
I wonder if its a conditioning issue?

I have no idea, and would think the entire scheme was insane, except the people I hear talking about it have some credibility.

Hey, anyone waiting for the Auburn shoes to start falling. Won't be long. Oregon might have their first (and only) BCS title.

Absolutely agree - my point is that it will be interesting if Boise State wins out decisively. They need to be in the top 16.

They could - or not produce - both San Diego State and Nevada have good teams although SDS lost their QB two games ago. Based upon the defense and offensive improvement I don't see any more losses - they continue to improve and Peterson will keep them hungry. His philosophy is to win the conference and the rest is gravy.

Ok. I now have an answer for this. Apparently JBF was promised assorted incentives which have never materialized so he may be weighing his options and one of those options could be a move to the hills of East Tennessee.

Nothing is for certain with BSU, especially given the recent spate of injuries combined with some suspended key players.

Oregon still has to prove that they can do this against an elite D. Their only recent example was last year against LSU...and we know how that turned out.

In 2008, it was all about Oklahoma and their record breaking offense. It was no huddle and they ran more plays per game than anyone else. I believe they set the record for average points per game as well. Then they finally meet an elite defense in the MNC game - Florida this time - and they manage all of 14 points. Same story every time.


If things go as expected it looks like we'll be able to see the ducks lay a big against Alabama come January......of course that's just my opinion, and that's why we play the games.

I'll be the only one to say it, but If it wasnt for the streak, i wouldn't mind Oregon beating Alabama. It'd be a spectacle to watch.

a big "W?"

what about 2010/2011, Oregon v Auburn, 22-19, last second field goal, pretty even game, Oregon put up 450+ yards, but Auburn had Cam Newton.

What's a more complete team? 2010 Auburn or 2012 Alabama?

to continue the metaphor, the word I mistakenly omitted was "egg"


I said "elite" defense....Not "SEC" defense. 2010 Auburn was NOT an elite defense.

Of course Oregon still lost that game. They did beat Tennessee in Derek Dooley's first game.....I guess that's your street cred against the dreaded SEC

I would love to see Oregon beat Alabama. I'm not a Bama fan. It won't happen though.They are in a completely different league....pun intended.

For balance, it has to be Alabama. Sabin has so many guys he can use, and get the job done. It really is a remarkable team to watch. Auburn could beat you up, but if they lost a couple of their key players, they would have been in trouble. Sabin just takes someone off the bench without a hiccup.

I just wonder how good a team has to be to beat Alabama. Can it be done by mere mortals?
