Good Fun, Bad Vibes

Oregon beat ASU in an amazingly entertaining football game last night on ESPN.

Much of Oregon's fan base is in a bitching mood.  The win wasn't good enough.  That places Oregon in new territory for sure.  I can't recall the last time, if ever, the Ducks started a season at 5-3 and had so many clamoring for a hatchet job on the program.

It's sad, not my cup of tea.  I enjoyed the game and would gladly watch more like it.  Well, in fact I do every Saturday throughout the college season.

Talk about misplaced priorities.  The fans more so than the team are turning into a joke.  The sense of entitlement is off the charts, a Nike-induced miasma.

When people can't accept change it makes for a lot of misery.  The whole blame-it-on-the-coaches mentality that prevails right now is, frankly, stupid.  Central to that is the misguided notion that Oregon's talent is superior to all others.

Reality doesn't suggest as much.  The inability to understand that Oregon is not beyond the beyond is sort of funny.

Oh well...
