Semifinal Results

Oregon 41 Cincinnati 38

Oregon came out on top in a back and forth game that will go down as one of the great games in college history.

Cincinnati jumped out to a 14-0 in the first quarter behind the passing of Tony Pike. The Ducks struggled to get the offense going, but they came alive when LaMichael James broke a 70 yard touchdown run with three minutes left in the first quarter.

Cincinnati responded with a touchdown early in the second quarter to make it 21-7. The Ducks came roaring back with two touchdowns to tie the game at 21 at halftime.

The third quarter would be begin with both team exchanging punts before Jeremiah Masoli connected with Jeff Maehl on 31 yard touchdown pass. Cincinnati would tie it up when Pike hit Marty Gilyard on a 17 yard touchdown pass.

In the fourth the Bearcats regained the lead with Issiah Pead run. Oregon would march down the field and tie the game with six minutes left. The Bearcats would regain lead with just 1:45 left on a 36 yard Jake Rogers field goal, but Oregon was not done. Masoli led the ducks down the field on the games final play Masoli would find Ed Dickson in the corner of the Endzone for a 9 yard touchdown to win the game.

Alabama 31 TCU 17

The second game did not contain drama of the first. Alabama jumped out to an early 7-0 and cruised from there. Mark Ingram shredded the Horned Frog's defense for 178 yards. TCU struggled all day to find its offense and the game was not as close as the final score indicated.

This sets the stage for an epic championship battle on New Years day between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Oregon Ducks.

Merry Christmas

Luke 2:1-20

1In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2(This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3And everyone went to his own town to register.

4So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn

8And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ[a] the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,14"Glory to God in the highest,and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

15When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."

16So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Final Pac 10 Rankings

Here are my final Pac 10 rankings of the year. For the record I picked Oregon to win the Pac 10 at the beginning of the year. Of course the rest my rankings were, but who cares I said the Ducks would win the Pac 10 and the did.
Preseason Predictions

1. Oregon- I was mocked and ridiculed at the beginning year. Who's the genius now?

2. Arizona- If it weren't for Oregon Holder Nate Costa, the Wildcats would be in the Rose Bowl.

3. Oregon State- For the second straight year the Beavers Rose Bowl dreams were crushed by the Ducks.

4. Stanford- Have I mentioned that I don't like Toby Gerhart?

5. USC- The Emerald Bowl? LOL

6. Cal- Pretty much what we've come to expect from a Jeff Tedford coached team, high expectations followed by a mediocre year.

7. UCLA- What the hell is the Eagle Bank bowl?

8. Washington- My early 2010 prediction: the Huskies will go bowling.

9. ASU- I think it's time for Erickson to retire.

10. WSU- Shame on SMU for losing to these turds.

OSU Joke of the Day

Two OSU fans were in a bar one night bragging about their latest accomplishment. The bartender noticed the two guys bragging to the women and curiosity got the best of him. "What's the good news?" he asked.

One of the men turned to the bartender and proudly said "Me and Beaver Bob just put a puzzle together and it took us a year!"

"A year?" the bartender asked, "You guys are proud of that?"

"Hell yes!" said Beaver Bob, "The box said up to four years!"

6. Cal- Easy game against the huskies this week to finish an up and down year.

8. ASU- For what it's worth they almost beat Arizona.

9. Washington- Congrats on beating the cougs, I guess.

10 WSU- I actually heard an announcer say that the future was bright in Pulman.

OSU Joke of the Day

A Beaver fan called the hospital saying "My wife is having a baby, what should I do?"
The nurse asked, "Is this her first baby?"
The Beaver fan replied, "No, this is her husband."

OSU Joke of the Day

Two Oregon State players were walking through the woods and came upon a set of tracks.
The first OSU player said "Those are deer tracks."
The second one said "Nope, they're too big for deer tracks. They must be elk tracks."
As the debate raged on they were hit by a train.
