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

The FWIW Dept.

Oregon has two bad conference losses, one against a Colorado team that played over its head, and the epic meltdown in L.A. against the UCLA Bruins.

The Bruins are in danger of becoming a one-man team (as Ball bounces, so does UCLA), and they have to go to Arizona eventually.  Yikes!

Oregon gets the home advantage one last weekend beginning Thursday when the dangerous Utes visit Eugene in what ought to be a crowd-pleaser.  But Utah can beat anyone on a given night, so the Ducks best come prepared. Saturday, the revenge game vs. Colorado could evolve as pure fun.

After that, the Bay Area trip looms.  It was bad for Oregon last year when my team dropped two before going on its rampage and into the Elite Eight.  Cal is really good, almost beat Zona Saturday.

As for the aforementioned Lonzo, who has a habit of going Gonzo from the basketball equivalent of the moon, would someone please stop him from doing that thing he does so well?

It's major excitement, babies.  Let it roll.
