Oregon flops big

I didn’t think Oregon would win last night, but Holy Cow, I didn’t see a complete rout coming.
Not to be negative, but it does make somewhat harder to fathom how completely Oregon dominated the Huskies less than two months ago. That win over UW is the only time Oregon looked good the last two months of the season save for its close loss to Oregon State. Otherwise, it was a decisive loss to WSU, a home-hum win over Portland State, routs at USC and at home to Arizona, and then the collapse against BYU.
And the positive for UW is that it showed that other schools in the Pac-10 have some major issues, as well, and getting back to bowl contention next year is obviously in reach.
Here’s some reading material on the Ducks.
First, fere’s John Canzano’s column blasting Mike Bellotti for not owning up to the loss afterward.
Here’s a game story from the Oregonian where Bellotti somewhat oddly tried to keep to his claim that BYU wouldn’t be among the top teams in the Pac-10 this year.
In the last two years, BYU has narrowly lost to Cal (35-28) in the Vegas Bowl and blasted Oregon, so the Cougars have some solid evidence to show they could at least be a 3-4-5 team in the Pac-10 right now.
Here’s another game story from the Portland Tribune calling Oregon’s offense dysfunctional.
I’d link the Eugene Register-Guard, but you have to register for their stories so it wouldn’t do any good. If you want to go there and register, you can do so here.
But here’s a list of their stories today, and the headline to Ron Bellamy’s column just about says it all “Once cutting edge, Oregon’s now dull as a butter knife.”
