The worst part about all this is that these idiot Ducks are good. They are winning and they are winning by a lot. They used to just be annoying when they sucked, but now they have the Red Sox-esque bandwagon fans coupled with the fans who claim to have been fans forever who in reality are just finding out the University of Oregon has a football team. They are arrogant, fair weather and ignorant. I cannot stand being around Oregon fans. Tomorrow, they will flock to Husky Stadium and pretend that they are the home team by migrating in groups of 13. They will flap their wings and say the Ducks are the best team in the country and that it is inevitable they will win the national championship......over and over and over and over.
Here is what we can do to reverse all of that confidence and quack talking: win. Just Sarking win. No, it won't be easy, it won't be easy at all. This would be one of the biggest upsets in Husky history (not the biggest, but atleast top 20 upsets of all time) and a springboard to some really exciting stuff for the future of the program. The Husky Loyal Army watched the Stanford game and agonized knowing we could have walked out of there with a win. But we didn't, we have to get over it. We showed the nation something. So much so, we only lost one spot in the rankings, that's pretty cool. Now we just have to show up at home and welcome our friends from Eugene to lunch. And be nice enough to cook their favorite meal...
This game is going to be crazy. It is going to be crazy fast, the fans are gonna be pumped and there will be a lot on the line. We can't get down early, lose the turnover battle and keep up with the penalties. If we can avoid those three things, I think we have a shot. I predicted a win before the season started, and I still feel we can win a close one. I am 5 for 5 on my calls, let's make it 6!!!
By the way, my response to the first question at the beginning of this post was something along the lines of, "win a national championship and we'll start talking."
