It certainly would be nice if this holds; Roper has looked very solid, and it would be good to end the season on such a positive note.

…Ah, now 39-14; I am becoming mildly hopeful…

    With a final score of 56-21 I think the Ducks have a good chance of winning so long as they don’t make too many mistakes during the flight home.

    Yes, some of your readers may laugh now and mock the “what ifs,” but that Oregon team today was a QB (Dixon) away from the National Championship game. Had the season-ending injuries of Paysinger, Dixon, Johnson, Colvin and the MLB just been slightly less…well…season-ending, that team would have been well on its way. South Florida didn’t even deserve to be on the same field as Oregon.

    Don’t forget the fact that Stewart was pretty injured the last few games of the season. If he was able to get 100 yards a game in the Dixon-less games, let alone 253, you might have seen Roper start in the championship game!

    Exactly. What’s more, he was the “only” offensive player worth a shit and defenses knew to key on him. Hell, just a healthy Dixon and this team would’ve had one loss. And yes, I’m saying that. The final three games were v. a crappy UCLA, a crappy UA and a mediocre OSU (at UO). All teams in football have injuries; Oregon’s injuries just happened to be season-ending AND to key players. I was proud of the team’s effort yesterday.

    I agree, Mr. Roper came very close to unmasking Jack Tripper’s masquerade this season and I look forward to his eventual success.
