I disagree and thought they both were hampered. These teams average 50 points a game and with a break, Oregon would have won this one. Great game.

Message: Points are designed to get the betting public to place equal amounts of money on each team thereby giving the bookie the juice, usually 10% of your bet if you are the loser. That is how the house makes its scratch. Favored means nothing other than perception but having said that, it is usually pretty close. This game should look like the LMU/ISU game in 1989 at Gertsen.
Hey Jim, Yes, we all remember that game well.

Message: I'm looking for some clarification from the Cougar nation? Recently I saw a special on " actor/rapper" Mark Walberg going back to the 80's where he and his group seem to be taking credit for the Beach Boys big hit, "Good Vibrations", didn't Brian Wilson write and produce that song? Now with reguards to the realignment of the fence around Hawthorne High, you can sugar coat it all you want, it still looks like a jail!!! How can we continue to not address the real issues as to why that fence even exists anyway. As most of you remember from the 50's, 60's, 70's, and maybe the 80's there was no fence. As Dr. Phil says, "no matter how flat you make a pancake it still has 2 sides".
Hi Bob, Brian wrote Good Vibrations.
