It was not until the 2006 season that I became enamored with arguably the best uniforms in college football—and with that interest came a love for Oregon Ducks football.

While I will always be a Georgia Bulldog at heart, I have found that it is just as much fun cheering for a team that I have absolutely no connection to whatsoever.

This upcoming year will be my senior year in high school, and as an early graduation gift, my dad and I are going to be flying out to Eugene to watch the Ducks take down the Utah Utes.

Seeing as I have grown up "Between the Hedges," I am already an expert in the realm of SEC football, and I am perfectly comfortable with all the Bulldog fight songs and screaming my head off when the defense is on the field.

I cannot wait to immerse myself in the Oregon football culture. I'm pumped about being amongst the craziest fans in the Pac-10, and I realize that the Ducks have the potential to do something great this year.

However, I am not sure how I will react because I do not know the traditions of Oregon football.

For instance, I have no idea what the fans do on kickoffs, I don't know how they tailgate, I don't know the fight song word for word, etc.

So, I would like to ask all of you Oregon fans to give me tips and/or things that you guys do on Saturdays before the game. What do you guys do while you are inside of Autzen Stadium?

Sept. 19 couldn't come any faster...GO DUCKS!
