Oregon Football: 10 Duck-Tastic Videos To Get You Pumped For Saturday
For college football fans, waiting for Saturday to get here is the worst. After a while, everything on ESPN, ESPN U, Comcast Sports, Fox Sports, The Big 10 Network, et al starts to repeat itself and the pundits ability to liven up the analyzing runs a little dry (I'm looking at you on The Experts, Coach Bellotti).
If you're an Oregon Ducks fan in 2010, this dirge is amplified, and game day can't come soon enough, especially when it's a game against the Washington Huskies.
Here are a few videos to help you make it through the day till we all meet again at Autzen or on ABC at 12:30 Pacific.
Behind The Scenes At An Oregon Cheerleader Photo Shoot
You Can't Suck If You Don't Have A Beak
My favorite parts are the Hout/Blount tribute at the end and the shout out to Uncle Phil.
Oregon Mascot Fight And Subsequent Suspension
Even mascots need to learn that there are consequences to your behavior.
Epic 2010 Oregon Football Promo Video
Beautifully shot and edited promo video featuring some of the greatest Oregon football moments from the last few seasons. Just ignore that one quarterback they cut to a few times. I hear he's in the SEC now.
ESPN GameDay Piece On The Duck's Conditioning
Kenjon Barner, LaMichael James and the Oregon cheerleaders are interviewed about the Duck's stamina, strength and sanity.
Cool Autzen Stadium Time Lapse
Check out this time lapse video that compresses four-and-a-half hours of this year's victory over Portland State into one minute.

Puddles Vs. The Tree In An EA Battle Of The Mascots
This is a quick one that has the Duck facing off against the Tree in EA Sports Mascot Mashup mode on the NCAA 11 video game. Always a treat.
Return Of The Quack
No Oregon Football video collection would be complete without supwitchugirl's latest "Return of the Quack". These guys are the complete package and the real deal (as real as white rappers from Oregon can be). Their video production chops are tight, the ability to get the school involved takes some hard work and their lyrics are great if you're an Oregon fan.
The cameo by Oregon great, former QB Joey Harrington seals the deal.
Perhaps the greatest play in Oregon sports history. This play, this victory and this 1994 season were the turning points in Oregon Ducks football.
All the people involved with this play, the picker, pickee and the announcing team, will be in attendance at PK Park right next to Autzen Stadium for a pre-game festival on Saturday from 10:30-Noon.
Also appearing will be Joey Harrington and the actual Heisman Trophy.
They'll be signing autographs, hanging out and doing a "chalk talk" for the fans. I'll post pictures back here on Bleacher Report on Sunday for those that can't make it.
Till then, win the day, live green, yell-"O" and Huck the Fuskies!
