    Ask about the consistent second half let downs. Especially on the defensive end.

  • Rollonubears

    Marvin catches that, they cover. Wow. Sad. We have to wait 2 years for Kline. It’s that simple,

  • Easy Ed

    Was it just me or on LaMichael James 1st touchdown and long run weren’t Whiteside and Kendricks held? Anyhow congrats to the Ducks D’Anthony Thomas proves you win with the best California players Phil “Sugar Daddy” Knight’s money can buy. I guess they outbid U$C

    Why are we surprised about the defense? It is Oregon. They put up points on EVERYBODY. What is a let down is the offensive creativity and play calling of Jeff Tedford. How do you not try take more shots and get a TD at the end of the half?

    CAL’s D has always given up points. What usually costs us games is when our offense stalls. When we can’t score points that hurts. When your offense can’t convert on 3rd downs, that allows the other team on the field. And in this case, it was Oregon. And you don’t want their offense on the field. When your D is gassed in the 2nd half, their is no way you don’t give up more points to them.

    You can blame the defense, but I’ll go ahead and say this loss falls on the offensive play calling and Jeff Tedford. AGAIN.

  • Easy Ed

    Remember Nate Longshore in 2007….Karma is a bitch!

  • Will

    Easy Ed, they didn’t mean to hurt Longshore and we didn’t mean to hurt James. No one wants to see a kid get hurt like that.

  • Easy Ed

    I certainly don’t but the Longshore injury was a cheap shot well after the ball was gone.

  • The Wisdom Cow

    Well, have to give the coaches an F for halftime adjustments.

    Tedford, would it be possible to sprinkle some pixie dust on Maynard to improve his accuracy? Is it mechanical?

  • miked

    how would he know…

    Look at all of the sour grape Cal state fans. Unbelievable. You used to be able to compete with Oregon but now you look like a high school team against them. Your offense is slow and your QB couldn’t make a sandlot team. That guy is terrible.

  • Will

    Funny how USC looked like a high school team against ASU in the fourth quarter last week, but we have yet to get your brilliant commentary on that debacle.

  • Bearister

    Actually, the karma for the Ducks was for their classless fans booing Marc Anthony for getting a separated shoulder. They’re a pathetic fan base on par with $UC.

  • Easy Ed

    I agree Bearister. Duck fans prove to be as classless as the Toejams. Congrats Ducks, D’Anthony Thomas looks like a fine addition to the best set of skill players money can buy.

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    Robert Wood is coming…..

  • Will

    6:45 a.m.??? Wow…

    I know I made an inappropriate joke earlier that JO deleted (I apologize for that), but I’m actually serious now. Check out this link:


    The best in your area…and I’m sure the daddy’s insurance will cover any of these places. Get help.

  • Juancho

    The Oregon fans were silly with their booing. But then again most of them are college kids. I was that drunk college kid at the Cal games once.

    But hey – look at it this way, it would be a huge dissapointment if any of my children told me “I’m going to attend University of Oregon”. Not even a safety school in my book.

    More of a, well let’s consider a junior college for a couple of years college.

  • Bearister

    With an acceptance rate of 79%, Oregon is only 21 points more selective than a California Community College.

  • BlueNGold

    at least robert wood leaves when the game is over. Moron could take a lesson from that…
