Whew.....what a game Saturday. As usual we had a great tailgate party even though it was "dampened" by the rain, the lack of Bill and Grayce, and the Edomites. Thank you Nelson's.

The win was GOOD, some of the playing was UGLY and IMHO the booing of our players was downright BAD. How quickly the fans have forgotten all those come back wins in the past and some of the truly bad losses. Masoli is a sophomore. He gives us the best chance to win right now and he is going to screw up. He will get better, he will make mistakes and he may lose some more games. The center made some mistakes, special teams were not special, and our D has had some lapses. Booing is acceptable for bad calls by the ref. and for bad sportsmanship.

I expected an 8-4 season this year based upon our lack of experience at QB. IMHO the Ducks are an average team the needs to win against a winning team to prove its meddle. The team has beaten all the bottom dwellers and needs to come through the next two game to be considered better than average. Will that happen? I don't know. I do know that I will be pulling for a win and unless this team gives up I will not boo them.

The November Ho Hums!

I've been remiss in not posting for a while. It is obvious the Oregon gray and rain has settled in after a very nice early fall. We have enjoyed the fall colors. The Ducks have impressed again with a great weekend at Arizona St. and then a disappointing loss at Cal. This team has yet to find it self. I am hesitant to predict how the remaining three games will turn out.

Thank God the political season is almost over. No matter how this election turns out we are in for another period of uncertainty and national stress. It is to bad that none of our politicians show true leadership and focus on what is good for the country as a whole, and not their party or special interest groups.

As November 11 approaches let's remember all those who have served our country and especially those who have made ultimate sacrifice for our country.
