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.

I still love the stadium experience. The brotherhood of fans with the beer, food, stadium walkover, etc...it's magical.

That said, my annual Ducks game is usually against a week 1 or 2 cupcake in the early afternoon. Those games are cheaper. Its the tradeoff I have to make (cheap vs good game) in order to justify the expense.

The NFL is an inferior product compared to CFB and I haven't paid any real attention in years.

How to fix?

-Make the crowd noise louder on broadcasts.

-Less focus on fantasy football (it destroys fandom).

-Allow tackling. 

I'm sure there more that I can't think of off the top of my head. I will say, in the once-in-blue-moon games that are entertaining, it takes me back to the days when I loved the NFL. Such as that Seahawks/Niners game a couple weeks ago.

If we win out the Ducks will be 4. 

Our uniforms are so awesome tonight too. 

Cant wait to be in Eugene watching my Bucks and Ducks play again next season!

Comment 08 Sep 2019

If the SEC manages to get two in again, or God forbid three, then the B1G, Big 12, and PAC-12 need to say to hell with it and form their own playoff via Fox Sports. This has become ludicrous to the point of disgusting.

Been said a lot on here, but I just asked my wife who is from Chicago and she recommends the train. I've only been to Chicago once but taking the trains around wasn't too big of a hassle. You should be able to park somewhere in the city and get there in a relative short amount of time.

Texas at 5 perplexes me. 

Oregon at 9 is a little high. With our laughable schedule we might be setting ourselves up for an embarrassing post-season. I hope not. 

Overall not a bad ranking, but I'd definitely rank Clemson ahead of Bama and Ohio State fifth, possibly 4th because eff Oklahoma.

Call it the PNW'er in me....but Subaru Outback. I think they are cool looking for what they are and the AWD is nice if you live in places with poor weather. Also, look to get the 3.6R if you need/want the power.

Eugene is a wonderful place and Autzen is a great stadium! I plan on going to both games. Second hand tickets to this game will be pricey and hotels will go fast.  If it's anything like when Nebraska came, we had to buy 3-game packages just for access to Nebraska.

Money aside, I highly recommend. The walk from Taylors to Autzen is legendary.

I am interested in what your fasting/feeding schedule looks like and if you limit particular foods - sugar, carbs, soda, fast food, etc... - I would love to try the fasting thing but would like an example of what that looks like since you lost 30 pounds in 2 months.

John Paxson (but it wasn't for very long). I was randomly a huge Phoenix Suns fan as a kid and he drilled a 3 in the closing seconds of a finals game which cost my Suns.

I'm biased since I live in the PNW but I vote drive the PCH. Plenty of hikes you can do in the Olympics when you're in Washington. Down through Oregon you get Astoria and will eventually hit Thors Well in Yachats, OR.
