This season was supposed to be the season of the Duck. The University of Oregon was an unstoppable scoring machine and calls of ‘We want Bama” echoed throughout Autzen Stadium; then Stanford and Arizona happened, and suddenly the Ducks were trying to just survive the always rigorous and daunting Pac12 schedule. Oregon has something like 1 million uniform options. Seriously folks, that’s their claim to fame. That, and the fact that they can’t seem to beat an SEC team in a bowl game, to save their lives. Hey Ducks, maybe worry less about Bama and the rest of the SEC, and try worrying a little more about the fact that the other teams in the Pac12 seem to finally have your number.
Oregon State is an annoying little brother to Oregon. The Beavers are always trying to get attention from their more famous brothers with an occasional uniform change, or even a 9 win season last year. However, the Beavers just can’t seem to get over the hump, or out from under the shadow of Oregon. Seriously, Oregon State is to Oregon, what Arkansas State is to Arkansas, what Auburn is to Alabama, the Clippers are to the Lakers, what Aqua Man is to the rest of the Justice League, what Beavis is to Butthead. You get the point, but I must pick a winner, and the clear choice is Oregon, because Puddles the mascot is a straight gangsta.
