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

LA Bound

The Ducks had to deal with star Dillon Brooks' early injury issues, but are looking very good. Oregon has beaten all four of the other Pac-12 teams that are currently in the bracket (Arizona, California, UCLA, USC), including that 85-58 blowout of Arizona last Saturday. However, the Ducks are a high-level home-court hero. All their best wins were in Eugene. They do not have to make the return trip to Arizona, but the L.A. trip is this week.--JP

Two tough games in L.A.  I expect a split, the loss being to UCLA.

But alas, USC is tough at home as well.  Everyone is tough at home, even me.
