Does it smack of a superior--we are so much better than UCLA we don't need those stinkin' time outs, in your face--attitude? :shrug:

1. Sure it does, and I love it.

This is what a real rivalry is all about.

Of course, now that they've done this, they better win by 30.

5. If they lose, who wins the PAC-10 and goes to the rose bowl
USC, Oregon, Oregon St all at 7-2, USC defeated Oregon, Oregon defeated Oregon St, Oregon St defeated USC.

9. Oregon State would, that's who!
It comes down to how the 3 teams did against the next best team, Cal.

OSU and USC beat the Bears, UO lost to them. They're out of the running leaving USC and OSU. Back to a two way tie.

Since OSU beat USC, they're in the Rose Bowl.


It won't happen, I don't think on their worst day USC loses to this UCLA team, but it would be funny for the Beavs to get one over on the Ducks this way.

7. Its stupid
I don't understand why wearing red is so goddamned important. And it seems to me, that a lot of times I remember schools pulling out special jerseys and go on to lose....

11. That's 'cause the QB couldn't find his receivers.
Because they were wearing camouflage!!!

13. (shrug) If offset by significantly higher team-gelling, I don't know what ppl are bitching about...
Other than the usual I-hate-good-teams-I-only-like-losers attitude that prevails, of course.
