Oregon vs. Oregon State: Your Civil War Primer

This will not be a who/what/when/where kind of article. If you are reading this, you already know it's Civil War week. Especially if you live in the state of Oregon.

Civil War week means that natural foes, Ducks and Beavers, will go at it for the 116th time—this year in Corvallis at Oregon State's Reser Stadium. And this year, people from outside Oregon actually care about the result.

There are things about Civil War week you need to know, especially if you are a Ducks fan who has jumped on the Chip Kelly bandwagon in recent years—not that there is anything wrong with that.

My parents took me to my first Civil War game when I was two weeks old, according to my mother. That explains a lot. The Ducks won...not that I remember. No, I'm not going to tell you the year.

So I figure that there is no one more qualified than me to fill you in on everything Civil War. Pay attention; you may need some of this info.
