You should work for ESPN, with your gr8 breakdowns, thanks for your input and have a pleasant day
Trust me. I live in Michigan. Vast majority of you are like this(above you, not you)^^. I was neutral until I finally started going to Ohio.
True story: went to Columus to see my favorite band play: Pavement. After the concert, I was walking around downtown with my wife and hitting up various bars and having a genuinely good time. I was wearing my old oregon shirt. Some buckeye students across the street saw me--and this was the year after you guys beat us in the Rose Bowl.
One of them says, "Oregon sucks. WE beat your ass, faggot!"
I smiled and replied, "classy move, buckeye. You always treat teams you beat with such respect?"
"yeah, yeah. Your girl is an ugly cunt!"
There's a line you don't cross. Buckeyes regularly cross it. Worst fans in football. Worse than fuskies. I may hate fuskies more on principle...but I will always know that the worst fusky is better than most buckeyes. And that's the truth. I have so many examples. And I don't even like arrogant wolverines. But I'm a fan by default thanks to you guys.
In all fairness--I hear Penn St is horrible too...but I haven't ventured that close to State College in a ducks jersey. Cheers, buckeye man. Go corral those horrid fans of yours.

I don't think anyone knows really, but Wilson did go on two official visits to two very high profile programs and walked out still committed to the Ducks. That says alot about where Oregon football has come, but my gut tells me that Wilson's heart is with the Ducks, but my brain tells me he's interested elsewhere. Wilson's a hard kid to read though, so who knows who he'll choose?
Still, no one should take any ground or anything for granted until he decides. (Hint: OSU fans)
You see stories like this on these boards all the time - the worst kind of stories and meaningless. Fan of school "A" goes to the town of school "B", goes barhopping, wearing his teams shirt and some drunk jerks runs his mouth. This somehow equals the worst fans in America. You could put in any school on either end and have the same story countless times.
Oregon fans are never disrespectful to other teams ;)
Any of ya know when Wilson is going to commit ? or if i can watch it anywhere ? thanks
Think it is a 7pm......still think Mr Wilson will be picking a hat with an O on the front of it......a yellow one.
Shall I tell you of the horror at Cedar Point? Or the racist country music fight on maumee bay? Or perhaps of the buckeyes that crashed a Kent State glass blowing show?
It's not just one story, man. And it's not anectdotal heresay. These are things I, personally, have witnessed. And I'm telling you they go way beyond the standard trash talk or drinking binge. But ok. Toss it off. I can tell you that "meaningless story" held deep significance for my traumatized wife.
And Ducks are known to be horribly obnoxious. True. We deserve it. Fuskies are arrogant, hollow d-bags. Wolverines are so full of themselves they won't give you the time of day until they see your credentials.
And Ohio State is...well, horrid. Not all of them, sure...but god, I'm not one for superlatives...but the horrors I've seen...

This coming from a guy whos screen name is "die yankeees die"!
Well all have war stories regarding our opponents fans.....it's always been that way and it probably always will be.
die yankees die.....I'm not trying to be disrespectful at all. What happened to you was wrong and absolutely those who yelled at you and your girl are the worst of the worst.....but honestly....wearing Ducks gear (or any rival schools colors) to a bar/nightclub in C-bus within a 25 mile radius of Ohio States campus is a bad bad idea. You have to know this.
I travel to a ton of games....I mean a ton! Unless it's a bowl game....when I venture to anyone's home turf on any of our OOC road games and most certainly conference road games.....I wear regular clothes! I don't ever sport any of my colors for the very reason you mention above. For me....it's just common sense especially since I'm not one that generally backs down from controversy. I could always use a good ass kickin' from time to time.....which doesn't happen all that often but I do like the challenge.....fortunately I'm a little older and wiser.....and 100% try to refrain from such activities....
I will say this though: tOSU fans seem to crawl out of the woodwork....I know I've had trouble with my own kind.....and from a sheer numbers standpoint I completely understand why the masses despise us. But that's ok...it is what it is.
What's important here is football. This....is what we all share a passion for and have in common!
Then you are delusional. I will be absolutely floored if he ends up a Duck. Hope so but it's pretty much a done deal from everything we're hearing.
Football. This....is what we should be talking about.
I have been criticized for saying that I'd rather have James Clark than Dontre Wilson. Only because I feel Clark fits a position of need more than Wilson.
I think Wilson is a better fit at Oregon due to his skill set which is the APB. We are deep deep deep at the RB position and I'd rather have a proven WR such as Clark as opposed to Wilson just from the experience standpoint. Plus with guys like Miller, Marshall and Elliot coming in.....I feel we have enough of those types and need more WR's as we only have two true WR's in our class so far.
That being said...if Wilson wants to go to C-bus so be it....I won't be heartbroken over it.
I certainly wish these kids handled recruiting as they did in the days of old.....the media attention these days is ridiculous and I think that is what is frustrating to us fans the most....they draw these things out in the hopes of soaking up as much attention as possible. However....if I were one of these young gentlemen....I'd probably try to soak up some spotlight myself....you just never know how it's going to work out at the next level.
Hey....we have some verbals that have our guys on the hook here as well so you're not alone in that department....let's hope these kids make the right decisions for themselves and truly end up where in their heart they want to be.
Best of luck to you great Ducks fans.....you have a right to be and should be proud of your program! Especially you older Ducks who've been through those down years...believe me I know how you feel!
Kick the $hit out of USC for me......we sure as hell can't seem to do it!
True story, after the 2010 Rose Bowl a band of clearly unemployed Buckeye fans (and by fans, I mean they never even ATTENDED tOSU) called my girlfriend ugly and threw a chainsaw right at my face. Luckily, I was so inspired by Ray Lewis' grace, that I had taken some yoga over the summer. If I hadn't, and wasn't so flexible, I'd be dead. The SUCKeye (rofl) fans then poured an entire beer on my puppy.
Scumbags, all of them.
Classy post....I am not going to lose any sleep over 18 year old kids decisions.....has to be tough for many of them. +1
Yes, I extremely dislike the NY yankees. You got me there. We debate sports and I tell them their fans are obnoxious and their teams are the most overrated, overpaid trash in the sport, then go on about salary caps and how my Tigers are the bane of their existence. It's light hearted and FUN. Keyword: rivalries should be fun first.
I like my screen name. I created it 15 years ago. I could have been Ducks48216, but then I'd be lost in the shuffle...
@bearduck--I respect your post...but I don't consider Ohio State a rival. It never even occured to me not to wear oregon gear. I wear suits to work, so on my off days, I'd say a good 1/3 of the time I'm sporting my college apparel. The only time it would occur to me that I might be picking a fight is if I wear my stuff on their campus on gameday (guilty), or wear oregon gear on fuskies campus or in corvallis.

There are no horrors at Cedar Point! Only fun...only fun.
OK he's gone, so he will have to live with his decision. I honestly believe it's his loss regarding Coach Cam; he just missed out on a really great opportunity to be coached by the best.....
Enjoy Life, it has an expiration date.
There are varying education levels within every fan base; I played college ball out here in Ohio at YSU and while I have seen the worst the Buckeye fans have to offer many of them are educated and very knowledgeable. I still hope we can hang on to Wilson, but at this point I am beginning to have some serious doubts.
Yeah after reading that I didn't mean to imply that we were rivals and it did read as if that's what I was saying....rather that for myself....on the road at a rivals house I wear plain clothes.
Or rather on the road to an OOC foe.....I also wear plain clothes. When I was younger I had too many run-in's and for me it's not worth it.
I don't wear OSU garb Penn State, scUM, Wisky or Champaign. Too many incidents...and I never go looking for $hit either.
Likewise if I were a Duck....I probably wouldn't wear my Duck apparel to corvallis or Seattle.
Went to Seattle for our road game back in 07' and didn't wear any tOSU gear. It's just not worth it to me.
great story die yankees die, you're obviously not that type of fan either
