This game also gave me some degree of closure. On to the off-season.

Fuck Clemson. Fuck *ichigan. Fuck Texas. Fuck the SEC. Fuck ESPN.

Whew. That helped.

My secondary sport is horse racing and it starts ramping up to the Kentucky Derby around this time which helps. Also, we get the Summer Olympics this year.

i don’t watch any other sports until it’s playoff time. Baseball live, at the ballpark, is fun every once in a while though.

Tyler Shough is the leader in the clubhouse. I’m partial to Cale Millen since he went to the local HS out here in Snoqualmie, WA but I don’t see him landing the job. In any case, the threats will be from RB and WR with Oregon. We will also have a Star-studded, albeit very young defense. If the Buckeyes OL is good, I don’t know how close UO can keep it.

Of course! I'm going to do a forum post as we get closer to the game - but I'll give you the scoop now :)

Hotels (I'm going to give you both Eugene and Portland since Eugene is tightly booked right now):

Eugene:

-Phoenix Inn or Best Western. If you like bed & breakfast I would snag a room at C'est La Vie Inn (very nice and decent location). Otherwise, whatever you can grab.

Portland:

-Anywhere. Just like all major cities, but if you want to spend big $$$ go for The Nines Portland. Very trendy and upscale. However, you really can't go wrong in Portland if you stay in or near the Pearl District. 

Eugene Restaurants:

-Falling Sky Delicatessen (there are three Falling Sky locations, but the Delicatessen has the best food).

-Track Town Pizza

-Elk Horn Brewing (decent food, not the best beer in my opinion)

-Killer Burger

-The Original Pancake House

-Glenwood

Beer/Drinks:

-For breweries, I highly suggest Oakshire Brewing followed by Ninkasi then Hop Valley. Oakshire is soooo goooood.

-Bar wise? Well, Taylors is the historic party location so I recommend that. Otherwise, Max's Tavern (inspiration for Mo's on The Simpsons) and Webfoot are a bit more low-key but really good.

Hope this helps!

I have no doubt you will enjoy your time at the game and in the area. Eugene is a special place and Autzen, although half the size of the Shoe in capscity, is a wonderful place to watch football. 

Comment 29 Dec 2019

That works - the drive isn't bad but on gamedays traffic going south to Eugene SUUUUUUCKS. So, just a friendly heads up to leave several hours in advance and enjoy some pregame festivities on 13th and over at the Mo'.

Comment 29 Dec 2019

I hope you have a hook-up! I don't know many Ducks ticket holders ready to part ways with tickets but hey $$$$& talks. If you haven't, get a hotel ASAP ...Eugene is already over 90% booked that weekend.

Comment 29 Dec 2019

I'll certainly be in Eugene to see my teams play :) I do not predict the Ducks to keep it close unless our highly-recruited defense can step up. 

Comment 11 Dec 2019

This makes me glad I saw the first CFP Championship game against Oregon. We paid about $300 per seat and sat damn near the top of the stadium, but it was a magical evening.

I'd like to again, but $1150 is way outside what we can afford.
