Scotch is slowly growing on me... tonight helped! Some of the real smokey and peety ones like Lagavulin are still a little too much...but I'm getting there.

Ducks v. ASU

Oregon takes ASU 35-23 to move up to #3 in the BCS:

"On a clear, crisp afternoon in the Willamette Valley, the largest crowd to attend a football game in the state, 53,379, turned out to watch the Ducks (8-1, 5-1 Pac-10) hand the Sun Devils (8-1, 5-1) their first defeat.

Arizona State came into the game as one of five undefeated teams in major college football, with its own hopes for a national title run.

Oregon ended those hopes behind the deft playmaking of Dixon and the running of Jonathan Stewart, who ran for 99 yards, including a 33-yard touchdown." -AP

GameDay Comes to Eugene

ESPN GameDay came to Eugene for the Oregon/Cal game... obligatory 5:00am tailgater ensued. Lee Corso picked the Ducks, and would have been right except for a ridiculous fumble into (and out of) the endzone with 22 seconds left and a chance force overtime.
