I know no one here cares, just putting it out there just in case someone does.... 😜
Sure, my quacks are likely gonna lose to either WSU this weekend or Utah next weekend (and/or in the p12 championship game). But it's fun to be somewhere even for a short while I didn't think we'd get to this season, especially with all the injuries to starters plus the limitations of our QB Anthony Brown.
That makes 2 out of 4 seasons at Oregon a Cristobal-led team has been in the running for the CFP. We ducks really had not expected to make a serious run before 2022 or 2023 at the earliest, so this has been a very positive development this season. You can tell that because nobody (including me!) feels we really are the #3 team in the nation this season.
Remember, Oregon was the doormat of college football back when I became a duck fan in the early '80s. Sucks never having numerous national championships, Rose Bowl wins and Heismans like you Trojans and other blue bloods.
So now, decades later, no matter how we quacks got here (thank you, Uncle Phil!), and after the Kelly/Helfrich years with two failed national championship tries, even if it doesn't last past this weekend, it's all still pretty cool for this wide-eyed duck fan.
