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 ;-)

A long long time ago, and after one too many nagging injuries, I was told I had pre-mature arthritis in my knees and needed to give up soccer. Needless to say it was a gut wrenching decision taken partly by me, partly by the overwhelming pain and very quickly by the loss in form. So I guess can commiserate somewhat with Trey and from a 57 year old whose knees still ache, say it was a wise decision by this young man.

What I find inspiring is the fact that he weighed his future health more importantly than the glory of the moment and shows a maturity beyond his years. However, I am not surprised as I notice that traits of intelligence and maturity are common in this team - I think Urban and Pantoni's recruitment vetting process looks for such traits in our recruits.  Finally, I really do believe that this an important factor in this team overcoming all the obstacles thrown at it this season and now stand at the brink of a National Championship.

Spot on, Mr. Master.  Nice to know I am not the only one who thinks the game was winnable and not bought into the blowout narrative espoused in the media.

Get a load of the latest ESecPN spin by Chris Low on twitter (don't know how to past tweets):

Who knew the SEC would be so imbalanced this season with all the power being in the East? Florida's win caps 5-0 bowl season for the East.

Oh, so the SEC West was not the true strength as claimed by everyone at ESecPN from pre-season onwards? The SEC power lies not in the division that ESecPN wanted to place two, if not, three teams in the playoffs? So the logical narrative is that the 5 bowl losses by the west should be discounted. 

Chris, you need a reality check - see a psychiatrist!

Thank you Jason. 

I agree with BuckToAst, let's make a century to both UV/DV and post a forum topic.

I got my Masters in Construction Engineering and Management, a School of Civil Engineering Major, and thought that Construction Systems Management was just a re-naming of the same. However, I did look it up and although I see many courses with the same name, it is part of the College of Food, Agriculture and Environmental Sciences. I guess more contracting driven than engineering.

Oh btw, thanks for reminding me that I got my degree 31 years ago! lol!

It’s a scary thought considering all the talent on Saban’s roster, but they’re now playing with a chip on their shoulder. They want to show Alabama football is back, ...

Really Alex? Let us see which team really has a chip on their shoulder, the 10 pt favorite or the 10 pt underdog!
