It seems remarkable to me that it made it past editorial review, assuming there is any. No, what happened shouldn’t ever die, but this is supposed to be - to some extent - a news outlet with some professionalism involved. That issue has no bearing on the guys playing on the field tomorrow. I don’t think it should’ve been brought up at all relative to tomorrow’s game.

As a kind of side note, in all the years I’ve watched Oregon (and this includes me going to the Rose Bowl game we played against them under Tressel, and the championship game), this is the best Oregon team I’ve seen. I decided that watching the Auburn game and I’ve watched them several times since.

I’m the scarediest scared person ever going into big games, and even I feel confident about Penn State. Maybe that should give me pause. If we somehow lost and aren’t in the B1G championship, and it came down to us against a 1 loss Oregon, Oregon absolutely should go as a conference champ. It doesn’t matter if I think we are better, conference champs should have a priority when loss numbers are the same. If that doesn’t happen, the system should end.

I used to be in the camp that wanted them undefeated until we play them each year, for the same reason everyone else cites. If they lose every game and we always trounce them, it isn't a rivalry anymore. What I have found, when being honest with myself the last few years, is that I get a lot of joy when they lose. I bask in their misery.

Do I want The Game to become irrelevant? No.

Given that, do I ever ACTUALLY want them to experience anything nice? No.

...and there ya go... wife says she's tired and about ready for bed. I'm not SUPER interested in the Oregon game so I'll head there as well. When I visited Ohio recently (stayed with family and went to the Michigan State game) I went to bed most nights at midnight or 1am (Eastern) and got up at 6 or 7.

I'm used to it, but I'm usually up early. I was up at 3:30 am this morning (I'm not normally up THAT early, but I went to bed early last night and felt rested when I got up), I had a few cups of coffee and worked for awhile, then turned on GameDay at 6 and Fox's show at 8. I'm ready for football by 9. I had actually gotten so accustomed to us playing at 9 I was feeling kinda irked about having to wait today.

I've always respected him, even when he was at Bama. He seems like a good kid. Amazing athlete. Fights hard. Sometimes derps on passes, but a lot of quarterbacks do.

Baylor is going to lose, but given their recent history they will have still impressed me.

Comment 16 Nov 2019

We scored 59 on his defense the last time we played him, so yeah...

 I’m just glad that he’s not at his alma mater.

I'm kinda feeling that way, too. He'd need a number of years to answer this, but with what he's done so far I'm wondering if he will ultimately be one of the great ones.
