Memories From Mac Court

McArthur Court has been the home of Oregon Duck Basketball since 1926. Currently it is the second oldest on campus arena still in use in the entire country. On January 1st the Ducks will play their final game at the old arena before moving into the brand new Matthew Knight Arena. I have attended close to 100 games at "The Pit" as it is affectionately called. Saturday I will attend one final game. While I'm excited about the beautiful new arena opening up, Saturday while be sad a day because of the many memories I have of the place.

I have been going games at Mac Court as long as I can remember. My dad and I would always sit in the front row of the third balcony which to this day I think is the best seat in the house. In those days the Ducks weren't very good (they still aren't), but I still loved going to games.
As I got into middle school and High School I didn't many games. My dad no longer enjoyed going to games because the arena was old, uncomfortable and had many bad seats.

My most memorable moments at Mac Court came during my college years. As a student I always sat in the front row of the student section. Many games I would often sit outside hours before the start of the game in order to get my front row seat. For the huge games we would barbecue and drink beverages that we weren't supposed to in public. During midterms I would often bring my books and attempt to study while waiting outside.

My first Senior year the Ducks finally returned to post season play, making it to the NIT. After disposing of Georgia Tech in the first round I was faced with a dilemna. They were scheduled to host Wyoming in the second round on a Monday night. The problem was that I had a Spanish final at the same time. In the end I did what any committed fan would do and made up a story about an out of town relative that I hadn't seen in years visiting. The instructor bought it and allowed me to take the final the next afternoon. Prior to the game my photo was taken by the local paper. I remember being worried all night that my Spanish instructor would open up his newspaper the next morning and see a large photo of me at the game when I was supposedly spending time with an out of town relative. Fortunately for me the picture didn't make the paper and I passed my Spanish final the next day.

My second senior year marked the return to the big dance. There were many great moments that year. First beating USC, erasing a bad memory from the year before when they beat us on a last second half court shot that shouldn't have counted. At one point a whiny USC player got a another free throw after complaining that the students were causing the basket to shake. My greatest memory from that year though was the "Mac Court Miracle" in which the Ducks scored six point in the final four seconds to beat Arizona State. As Darius Wright's last second three point shot went in I hugged Nike CEO Phil Knight who was sitting right in front of me at a media table. I then stormed the court jumping onto the pile of players celebrating the miraculous victory.

After college I returned to the Student Section a couple times using my old student ID, but most of the time I sat in the second and third balconies where I sat as a child. The most memorable moment in my post college came in January 2007 when number 1 ranked UCLA came to town. At that game I was selected to participate in Outback Steakhouse Three Point Shootout. The goal was to make five three point shots in 30 seconds and I would win a $50 gift card at outback. The arena was full that day and preceded to shoot a bunch of bricks and air balls while being taunted by the student section. After the game I was walking back to my car when a truck passed me and someone yelled out the window "nice shooting!". The next day at church I must have had at least five people comment on my dreadful shooting performance. As for the game itself the Ducks won that day 68-66 shocking the number one team in the country. I desperately wanted to storm the court like in my college days, but I was stuck in the third balcony.
Saturday will mark the last time I go to the old arena. I'm sure as I walk out of the place for the final time that I will tear up thinking about all the great memories from that place. I just hope my final memory of Mac Court will be a Duck Victory.

Week 13 Pac 10 Rankings

After a one week break my rankings are Back.

1. Oregon- Oregon can clinch the Pac 10 with a victory over Arizona on Friday.

2. Stanford- The best one loss team in the country. It will be a shame if they get left out of a BCS game.

3. Arizona- The Wildcats have lost two in a row. Friday will be three in a row.

4. Cal, USC, OSU, ASU, Washington- None of these teams are very good.

9. UCLA- Three years in and I think it's safe to that Rick Neuheisal has been a failure.

10. WSU- The Cougs are better, but I still have them at the bottom.

Saturday, November 13, 2010

Week 11 Pac 10 Rankings

1. Oregon- The last time the Ducks won at Cal was 2001. The losing streak at Cal will end today.

2. Stanford- The Cardinal are the best one loss team in the country. Unfortunately for them they might get jobbed by the BCS.

3. USC- I put USC at three, but they're not even close to Stanford or Oregon.

4. Arizona- Pathetic effort against Stanford, but I can't justify putting anyone else here.

5. Oregon State- The Beavers need to win two of their last four to get to a bowl game. With USC, Stanford and Oregon Still on the schedule I don't think they get there.

6. Cal- Did they really need to come from behind to beat the Coogs?

7. ASU- The Sun Devils have lost 3 games by 3 or less points.

8. UCLA- Nice win against the Beavers, but the Bruins are still lousy.

9. Washington- They held Oregon scoreless for the first quarter after that they gave up 53 points.

10. WSU- The Coogs are getting closer, but I don't think today is the day.

Friday, November 05, 2010

Week 10 Pac 10 Rankings

1. Oregon- The Ducks have beat the Huskies by 20 or more six consecutive times. In the history of the Pac 10 dating back to 1915 no other team has beat a team by at least 20 points six consecutive times.

2. Stanford- The cardinal will beat Arizona tomorrow and I think they'll go 11-1 and not get a BCS invite.

3. Arizona.- The Wildcats have conference title aspirations. They won't after tomorrow.

4. Oregon State- Could the Beavers be starting their annual surge to the top? Probably not.

5. USC- So much for their "bowl game" against Oregon.

6. Cal- Another disappointing for the Bears.

7. ASU- Dennis Erickson should begin cleaning out his office.

8. Washington- So much for the Huskies being back.

9. UCLA- Could the Bruins upset the Beavers on Saturday? Probably not.

10. WSU- The Coogs just flat out suck.

Week 8 Pac 10 Rankings

Since I was on vacation last week the Pac 10 rankings took a vacation as well. Here are this week's rankings.

1. Oregon- The #1 team in the country has lost each of the last two weeks. I don't expect that trend to continue this week.

2. Stanford- I don't expect the Tree to be challenged much by WSU.

3. Arizona- without Nick Foles the cats could take a dive.

4. USC- Still not sure what to make of the Trojans. I think we'll find out more next week.

5. Washington- The Huskies are 3-3 after beating Oregon State. Could they go bowling this year? We'll have to wait and see about that.

6. Oregon State- I don't blame Riley for going for it. I just think you need to put the ball in Jaquizz Rodgers' hands at the end of the game.

7. Cal- Jeff Tedford's seat is starting to get really hot.

8. UCLA- Night game at Autzen Stadium? Not a chance.

9. ASU- If the Sun Devils want any hope of going to a bowl they must beat Cal. Otherwise it could be the end of the Dennis Erickson era.

10. WSU- The Coogs are coming off of two straight moral victories. I doubt the get a third against stanford.

Friday, October 08, 2010

Week 6 Pac 10 Rankings

1. Oregon- Nice of Oregon to spot Stanford an early 21-3 lead. Too bad for the trees that it didn't help.

2. Arizona- A lot of football left to be played, but there could be an Epic game at Autzen Stadium the after thanksgiving.

3. Stanford- Stanford has USC home this week. Look for them to blast the Trojans for a second year in a row.

4. OSU- A nice win against ASU last week. I doubt the Beavers go into to Tucson and get a victory.

5. Washington- Locker for Heisman. No not really

6. Cal- More of the same from Cal. High expectations and mediocre results.

7. ASU- Dennis Erickson's seat is starting to get really hot.

8. USC- I hope this Kiffin guy sticks around for awhile, but I don't see him lasting more than three years.

9. UCLA- Nice win against WSU. I guess.

10. WSU- Can they hold Oregon under 70?

Friday, October 01, 2010

Week 5 Pac 10 Rankings

1. Oregon- The Ducks were sloppy at times last week, but got the job done. I think they play their best game of the year and chop down the Trees on Saturday.

2. Stanford- I've been hearing all week about how great the Trees are. They won't look so great after Saturday.

3. Arizona- They didn't look great against Cal, but they got the job done.

4. USC- The Trojans are 4-0. I'm still not impressed, but I can't argue with 4-0. Lane Kiffin is still an Idiot.

5. UCLA- Two weeks ago I left the Bruins for dead. Since then they are 2-0.

6. ASU- The Sun Devils are Better than I thought they were. They may actually sneak into a bowl and save Erickson's job.

7. Cal- The Bears looked better against Arizona, but there are no moral victories in sports.

8. Oregon State- A word of advice for the geniuses that did OSU's schedule. Don't schedule 2 top 10 opponents in September.

9. Washington- Mel Kiper and Todd McShay are still going on about how great Jake Locker is.

10. WSU- No Comment.

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Week 4 Pac 10 Rankings

1. Oregon- Time for some real competition. I just don't see that happening this week.

2. Arizona- I said Arizona would beat Iowa and I was right.

3. Stanford- Has looked impressive so far, but who have they played? I hate to say it, but I think the Cardinal lose at Notre Dame.

4. USC- Their wins haven't been pretty, but the Trojans are 3-0.

5. Oregon State- The rodents almost choked at home against Louisville . This week they'll get rolled on the smurf turf.

6. ASU- Nice effort against Wisconsin, but it was still a loss.

7. Cal- Looks like your typical underachieving Cal team. Nevada?

8. UCLA- The Bruins actually found some offense last week. I doubt they find much this week.

9. Washington- Jake Locker Heisman Campaign = Epic Fail.

10. WSU- The Cougs should consider a move to the Big Sky they might actually be competitive.

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Week 3 Pac 10 Rankings

1. Oregon- The only question about the PSU is how much will they win by? My guess is a comfortable 62 point victory.

2. Arizona- The competition gets better this week as the Cats face Iowa. My guess is that the cats pull this one out.

3. Stanford- I'm still not sure about the Cardinal. The looked good against UCLA, but UCLA has one of the most inept offenses in the country.

4. Cal- A big win over future conference foe Colorado, but the Bears are usually good for mid season slump.

5. Oregon State- After a bye week I look for the Beavers to dispose of Lousiville.

6. USC- The Trojans won, but that was a lousy performance against Virginia.

7. ASU- A tough challenge on the road against Wisconsin this week. I doubt the Sun Devils are up to it.

8. Washington- I actually had a Husky tell me they're back. Beat someone other than Syracuse before you start spewing crap like that from your mouth.

9. UCLA- I thought Rick Neuheisel and Norm Chow were offensive geniuses?

10. WSU- A come from behind victory over Montana State is probably the Cougs only victory this year.

Friday, September 10, 2010

Week 2 Pac 10 Rankings

1. Oregon- Dominating victory over one of the worst teams in college football. Things get more difficult this week, but I fully expect the Ducks to role.

2. Arizona- The Cats looked impressive in disposing of Toledo.

3. Stanford- Easy win over inferior competition

4. Cal- See Above

5. Oregon State- A nice effort, but there are no moral victories.

6. USC- The Trojans won, but unless there defense gets better they won't win many more.

7. ASU- See Stanford and Cal.

8. Washington- The Jake Locker Heisman campaign is OVER.

9. UCLA- Kansas State? I expected more from the Ruins.

10. WSU- I didn't thinks WSU could be worse than they were last year, but after last weekend it appears they are.

2010 Pac 10 Predictions

The start of Football season marks my return to blogging. Every year since I started this dumb blog I have posted my preseason Pac 10 predictions and every year I have successfully picked the Pac 10 champ. Last year I was mocked, ridiculed and accused of being a homer when I boldly predicted that Oregon would end USC's reign at the top of the Pac 10. Guess what? I was right!!

Now for my 2010 Pac 1o Predictions:

1. Oregon- Despite breaking in a new QB the Ducks are loaded on both offense and defense. Whether it's Senior Nate Costa or Sophmore Darron Thomas at QB Oregon will be at the top of the Pac 10.

2. Oregon State- One thing you can always count on from a Mike Riley coached team is at least four losses. This year the Beavers won't dissapoint. Look for the Beavers to strugle early only to turn it around and be in contention late only to have the Ducks crush there Rose Bowl dreams for the third year in a row.

3. USC- Lane Kiffin is an idiot, but the the Trojans have too much talent to completely suck.

4. Arizona- The Cats defense is terrible, but their offense will be good enough to win some games.

5. Washington- After a long absence the Huskies will return to a bowl this year, but Jake Locker is NOT a legit Heisman contender.

6. Stanford- A lot people are high on Stanford, I'm not. Luck is good, but he doesn't have Toby Gerhart to hand the ball off to anymore.

7. Cal- Cal has been the biggest underachiever in the Pac 10 in recent years. This year won't be any different.

8. UCLA- The Bruins could be better, but I doubt it.

9. ASU- 2010 will be Erickson's last year. Don't be surprised if they make a call to an ESPN broadcaster named Mike Bellotti.

10. WSU- The Cougs are bad, really bad.

The Declaration of Independence

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Happy Independence Day

On this day 234 years ago the Second Continental Congress approved the Lee Resolution declaring that the the 13 colonies be Independent of British Empire. It was two days later that the document formally announcing this action was approved. On July 3, 1776 John Adams wrote the following to to his wife Abigail:

The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

I guess John was a couple days off on his prediction.

Who Should the next coach be?

Reports out of Eugene are that Ernie Kent has been fired as head basketball at the University of Oregon. The next question is who will be the next coach. I have divide my list into three groups. Tier I are the coaches that probably would never come to Oregon, but unless you make the call you'll never. Tier II are the more realistic candidates, but you'll have to shell out some money to get . Tier III are the coaches that you go after if you fail to land a coach from the top two tiers.

Tier I

Jamie Dixon- Pitt
One of 9 coaches to reach 100 wins in his first 4 years. He was the 2009 National coach of the year. Since taking over Pitt in 2003 they have have gone to the NCAA tournament every year. This guy can flat out coach. He is west coast guy so there is a slim chance he may listen to what Oregon has to offer.

Jay Wright-Villanova
Since Taking over Villanova in 2001 the Wildcats have advanced to the post season every year. Under Wright the Wildcats have advanced to two sweet 16's, an elite 8 and a final 4. After last season he had a career record of 300-175 as a coach. Probably won't leave Villanova, but who knows, maybe he wants a new challenge.

Tier II
Mark Few-Gonzaga
Few has been the trendy pick of Duck fans for years. He has the led the Bulldogs to 10 straight NCAA tournaments and they have won the WCC 9 straight years. Word on the street is that Few was offered the job last year, but Oregon wouldn't meet his price demands. While I do have some concerns about Few I think he still a significant upgrade over Ernie Kent.

Mark Turgeon-Texas A&M
Turgeon is a former assistant at Oregon under Jerry Green. Many people including myself feel that he should have got the job instead of Ernie Kent. Turgeon turned around Witchita State leading them to five straight winning seasons including a sweet 16 appearance in 2006. He has taken the Aggies to the NCAA second round each of his first two years and they appear certain to return this year.

Steve Alford- New Mexico
Alford currently has New Mexico ranked number eight in the country. New Mexico will the third program that Alford has taken to the Big dance. While I think there are better candidates out there I think Alford is at least worth a look.

Scott Drew- Baylor
His overall record may not be the most impressive, but when you consider the mess that he inherited (See Baylor Basketball Scandal) he has done one of most remarkable coaching jobs in the country over the past seven years.

Tier III

Randy Bennett- Saint Mary's
Bennett has built a nice little program at Saint Mary's. He has led them to two NCAA appearances and an NIT birth in a conference dominated by Gonzaga. If any they can't get any of the above candidates then Bennett is worth a look.

Ben Jacobson- Northern Iowa
Currently the panthers are 27-4 and were ranked in the top 25 much of this season. Has had a winning record each of his previous three years and led the Panthers to the tournament last year. I have a feeling that Jacobson will be moving up in the next couple years

Steve Lavin- Former UCLA Coach
Currently an ESPN broadcaster Lavin hasn't coached since 2003. In seven years at UCLA the Bruins went to NCAA tournaments and advance to the Sweet 16 four times and the elite 8 once.

Terry Porter- Former Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns coach
While not overly successful as an NBA coach Porter could be worth a look. He's got a great basketball mind and the former Portland Trail Blazer is beloved in the state of Oregon.

The Tebow Ad

For the last couple weeks we have been hearing about the controversial "Tebow ad" during the Super Bowl. The problem was that not one person complaining about the ad actually saw the ad until Sunday. After seeing the ad yesterday I thought there was no way anybody who actually saw the ad could find anything objectionable about it. I almost spit my coffee all my computer today when I read the following quote from NOW President Terry O'Neill:
"I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it. That's what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don't find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself."
This lady can't be serious, can she? How is this ad a "celebration of violence against women" ? This has got to be one of the most ridiculous things I've heard recently.

National Title Game

Alabama 27 Oregon 21

It was great game with several momentum swings but in the end Mark Ingram Alabama were too much. Congrats to the 2009 Dennisdailyrant.com National Champions the Alabama Crimson Tide.
