My nephew, my only sister's son, is a senior at Oregon. I accompanied him to Eugene for his move in. Honestly, I have to say I fell in love with beauty of Eugene and the state of Oregon. Thus the Ducks became my second favorite college team.
Before the semis we both wished each other good luck. I was elated at their win over FSU and he messaged me that he really wants us to beat Bama.
But, would I mind if Ducks won? Is the Pope catholic? Of course, I would mind - no I would hate it!
Tomorrow night, I expect him to be sad - no problem he is young and will get over it - and I, to be ... something beyond ecstatic.
BTW, he applied to tOSU but didn't get a response before Oregon, Miami (Fla) and Colorado told him he was accepted. As the moneybags paying his way through college, I nixed Miami ;-)
