If you asked me at 5:00 today if the Boise State football team had a possibility of destroying Oregon, I would have said you were crazy.
That opinion changed after i saw the first half. Seriously, I wasn't expecting Boise State to be so much further ahead than the ducks. I thought I was going to be on the edge of my seat, but the game was over after the first half.
The scoreboard probably wouldn't indicate that, but the ducks were not mentally into this game. 13-0 at the half is definitely not a impossible situation to dig your way out of, but the ducks shot themselves in their webbed feet after the first half. I honestly thought Boise State was going to run wild on Oregon after the safety, but there were too many mistakes, that game was a lot further than the scoreboard indicated. 19-8 was the final score, and I thought Boise State should have scored well in the thirties.
Boise State was messing up crucially in the beginning, driving inside the Ducks 15 only to give the ball back to them. The Ducks couldn't capitalize either, going 3 and out on 4 possessions in a row.
14 yards. The Ducks went 14 yards in 2 quarters. Are you serious? Not only that, there was a pickoff-fumblepaloosa in the second half. This is the Ducks team that is supposed to give USC and California a run for their money. The Ducks I saw today couldn't win the PAC-10 if Slippery Pete and Jeff Tedford were both on their deathbeds.(the way Grandpa Pete looks he's probably not that far from it, but that's a story for another day.)
Boise State mentally, physically, and Spiritually Dominated the Ducks in every aspect of the game.
To top it all off, Legarrate(sorry if i spelled his name wrong) Blount goes and hits another Bronco, possibly suspending him from their football team indefinitely.
Just when you that they couldn't get any lower, Blount tries to go after some of the fans too. Now i understand emotions run wild in emotional(no matter how bad) games, but he just let loose, there was NO excuse for him to act like that. he single-handedly embarrassed the Oregon Ducks and possibly Put their PAC-10 Future in jeopardy.
Now I'm directing this to the ducks fan base, i just want to hear your opinions. Do you think that the team you saw tonight has a shot of winning the PAC-10? The Ducks that I imagine or at least the ones I wanted to see tonight, can pull through. After this crazy night of college football, if THAT Oregon team we saw tonight played against USC or California, the Ducks dreams would just stay as such, wild fantasies.
Changes need to happen if the Ducks still want to contend for the PAC-10.
