12-1 likely finish #2 and BCS bowl win is hardly losing the year.History doesn't remember who #2 was. Was it a great year? sure, but it wasn't a year to remember. Oregon already had a fiesta bowl win, time to move on from that dance and do something of substance. were it not for a kicker Oregon would have had a chance at the only game that matters outside of the conference championship and the rosebowl. None of the bowls the rest of us went to matter either, but we had excuses to suck. Ducks just laid an egg.
but they lost the year Stanford Pac 12 champs ND NCs and Oregon exhibition bowl champs .... Pac 12 sucks .. ND owns the Pac 12 ... JUST THE FACTSYeah Gerry's PS3 said ND "owns" the PAC12. He played EVERY one of the PAC teams as ND and won all of em on his video game.
It will be a loooong wait for that late august opening in the new stadium.Those pesky Huskies have nothing to lose and everything to gain Wiz. NOT l@@king forward to seeing what UW has in the tank next year. It's like waking up an economical China, turning the dogs loose when hunting season starts and another offseason of "riping" the QB fruit on the vine.
It was memorable year. Oregon"s coach was the first in history to go to 4 straight BCS Bowl games. Won back to back BCS Bowl games. How many programs can say repeat? Here"s a hint less than 5. When Chris Fowlr says Oregon has established themselves as a national power - it's a memorable year. Why you so jealous? Oh ya 9 in a row.Still minor achievements when you consider what the real prize is every year. Win the conference then win the NC. Oregon is the Dan Marino of College Football until you win the big one..... Great but still minus that ultimate prize
but they lost the year Stanford Pac 12 champs ND NCs and Oregon exhibition bowl champs .... Pac 12 sucks .. ND owns the Pac 12 ... JUST THE FACTSThis year they did and there is nothing you can say about it. Last year was different. Looking forward they lose a lot next year and well just have to wait and see.
Ducks just laid an egg.12-1 and back to back BCS bowl wins isn't laying an egg. Losing to Oregon for a decade straight has gotten UW fans all bitter. At the end of the day only 1 team is champion. This year wasn't Oregon's year. I like our chances in 2013 with Mariota and Thomas. I like UW's chances to pound sand. Husky fans are still blaming 1998 for all their problems. meh.
Oregon took out the #5 team in the Country in 12 seconds !!!!!!!!!!
Stanford struggled for a win against an unranked Badger team.
USC lost to a 6-7 Georgia Tech team.
UW was schooled by BSU.
UCLA blown off the field by 4th place Baylor.
OSU meltdown in Texas.
Arizona needs miracle to slide by Nevada.
ASU humiliates themselves by keeping their starters in mid way through the 3rd quarter with a 40 point lead.
And, Oregon is the team that failed??????
TF12 Don't bother trying to reason with ED, he is becoming the Smiles_id of oregon more and more. Quacks and Mamba can be talked to and respond to direct questions and comments, but ED has no ability nor desire to do so. You just won't get through to him.

Oregon laid an egg against Stanford and no amount of spin can change that. It has nothing to do with who else you beat or what bowl you won, your seasons goal was a national title and to lose that at home is a bit of an egg by anyones standard. The only people who care about how many times in a row someone has won is Oregon fans. I don't pay any attention to it and never have. Doesn't matter how many times UW beats someone in a row and never will. Only matter how they do in the current season. For all the talk you zeros have about others living in the past you sure do camp out there a lot. Just an observation.
At the end of the day only 1 team is champion. This year wasn't Oregon's year.
Exactly, now if you could convince ED of that some of the nonsense up here would go away. The zeds had a great season by any other standard, but none of you were looking at being happy with anything less than at least playing in the title game at the start of the season so by your own standards it wasn't your year. Agreed.
I like our chances in 2013 with Mariota and Thomas.
If you mean your chances of making another BCS bowl then maybe, but if Kelly goes the odds Oregon is in the title hunt have to go down don't they? I mean the zeros were a very good team under mike 'the thug maker' belotti, but it was Kelly that took them to the next level. The odds that the next guy can pick it up without missing a beat are not great and at the level you are at it only takes one minor step back to take the natty away.
I like UW's chances to pound sand.
A duck not liking the chances of UW to play well? There's a shock. I don't like their chances much either if Sark can't either fix Price or make the change at QB. If either of those happens I expect nothing less than a double digit win season and will not accept anything less.
Husky fans are still blaming 1998 for all their problems.
There is nothing I'm aware of that happened in the late 90's that had any impact of any kind on UW football. If there is anything to blame it was pretty much anything and everything that worthless excuse of an AD Barbara Hedges did. She blew up the program by selling out the football program in favor of womens soccer and softball. Then there was one failed HC hire after another that slowly drove them down to 0-12. The next AD after her brought in the boat anchor of the program in Willingham. Woodward has the program going in the right direction and nothing outside of the program is holding them back. So again I say I have no idea what you mean by 1998. Whatever it is, it is something in your head and nothing any UW follower even knows about. Only two people to hate for the downfall of the great UW tradition: Hedges and Hobert. Pure and simple.
