    The final score doesn't reflect the thorough ass whooping Stanford put on. I hate the tree right now, but they deserved that one, just like last year. And probably next year

    Ducks offense played fine besides turnovers.

    It was Oregon's d that lost it. Check time of possession and it explains everything

    Oregon got their ass handed to them in the first half. If Oregon didn't play so shitty in the first half it would of been a different story in the end.

    The team that played the best won the game. It's that simple. The Ducks made a lot of mistakes. Now, maybe this means the Beavs have a chance at the Civil War.

    Hh h ah hahhaha ha hahhahhahah..... yeah, right.

    Wel, one thing in Oregon's favor, the polls haven't caught up with the reality of the issue.

    I suspect that the other shoe will fall some time after the big games tomorrow.

    Ducks and Beavers... surely names that strike fear and trembling in the hearts of their foes...:D And add to that the push for "PC" running rampant through the nation's wimps. I'll take Thorfin Skullsplitter, the Yarl of Orkney, or Vlad the Impaler, Edward Longshanks, or Harald Hardrada. Hell, there's even Ivar the Boneless-I'll leave it to you guys to come up with the reason for that moniker, right up there with Ethelred the Unready! Cardinal, Sounders, the Angels, the Rams, Wenatchee Wild...OOOOOO!!!

    While I don't disagree with your first statement, time of possession is a misleading statistic when a conventional team is playing a hurry-up team. The conventional team is consuming the 40 second whole play clock (longer than the duration of the actual plays!!!) while a hurry-up team is consuming half of that time or less. To me, a more relevant statistic is number of plays.

    I watched that game and that 2:1 dominance in play numbers does not surprise me. Stanford controlled the game and kept the ball away from Oregon far more than most had expected. And Oregon turned the ball over in the red zone too often.

    yeah but Oregon still could have won that game having a 49th play :eek:


    Been arond football a lot. I have found that only one statistic counts, and it is not

    Conversion percentage of third downs
    Number of turnovers or turnover margin
    Time of possession
    Number of offensive plays
    Red zone scoring percentage
    Number of first downs
    Rushing yardage
    etc.

    You can lose in all the statistic categories and win the game...and you could also win all the statistical categories and lose the game.

    The only statistic that matters is the score.
    All you have to have is 1 more point than your opponent and most will take it every single time and in any way.

    But the stats help in determining what is needed and targeted for a team to have a successful outcome in most games. ;)

    Sorry Dave... I've never like the Duckies. The whole Phil Knight/Nike thing is just too over the top for me. I long for the early 90's when they were the leagues tackling dummies! Not a big Stanford fan either, but Thursday night they were the best ;).

    Well, looks like another SEC invitational.

    Man, I bet everyone on the planet (except the SEC) wants to see a playoff system like Div 2. There's no such thing as a true champion in Div 1 football, never has been.
