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

Football Follies

As Yogi (R.I.P.) might have put it--if it's not one thing, then it must be something else.

First it was the struggle with Vernon Adams' math test from hell, which he finally passed.  Now it is the case of the mysterious broken finger that plagues his presumed All-American year.

Oregon can't escape the drama at this stage.  Play the damaged Adams, or the less-than-gifted backup Lockie?

Tough call.  I wish the staff best with this one as the Ducks prep for Utah on Saturday evening.

There is one thing I've noticed about Oregon's legion of football fans/experts, however--they will not be happy, no matter the outcome.
