Agree with all who are having a hard time hating on the Ducks.
I would have been up for hours, tossing and turning, if we had somehow lost AGAIN to an SEC foe on New Years night. I have spent so much emotional energy on the Bucks redeeming not just themselves but midwest football that I really did not want to go to work after another loss. The desire to wipe the smug from the SECers was overwhelming.
I don't care that much about Monday night. Thats not to say that I don't want the Bucks to win, I do, as much as I ever have, but for me anyway, I go into games thinking about what a loss will feel like too. And a loss to the Ducks just doesn't sound like it will feel bad. Im pretty damn sure it will be a well played game by the Bucks. Win or lose they are going to show the nation again they are a force to be reckoned with and its possible Oregon may just have a little too much offensive firepower for us. I don't think they will but they have been pretty damn impressive.
I have always liked the Ducks to be honest. I was glad to see them rise up to challenge the Trojans in the Pac 12. Washington was my favorite Pac 12 team forever but they have been weak for a while now.
Frankly, I think the Ducks are due. I hope we delay their championship for year or two but they have been knocking on the door for quite few years now.
