To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Down

They can deny it all they want, but the Ducks came out tonight and played scared in the first half against the Cardinals of Louisville.

Once they discovered Louisville's players tie their sneakers the same way everybody else does and adapted to the intimidating environment it was too late.

They were fine in the second half, but the damage was done.

Still, Oregon beat the Vegas line (10), which even I didn't really figure they'd do.

The Ducks were a senior-dominated team this season, but a couple of their young guys can really play.

Losing Kazemi will set them back.  Though well-coached I don't see them doing as well next season.

I wasn't happy with the results of any of the games tonight.  My favorites all lost.
