    I don't know if a Big12 team is going to leapfrog an Pac 12 team this year though....

    And WVA still has to beat Oklahoma....I don't think that happens as it is...

    Is that what it's like when Ducks cry?

    Bellotti made them respectable and occasionally great; Kelly made them elite. I doubt Bellotti feels vindicated. He wasn't run out of town so there's no reason he'd have animosity, imo.

    Oregon was never great. Flashy, yes. Great, no.

    They were never great? They were 46-7 under Kelly with 2 BCS wins, 4 BCS bowls, and came within a last second field goal of going to OT with Auburn(led by Cam Newton) in the NC. They went to another NC game 2 years ago. They were great.

    Why the hell was Cal doing a pooch punt from their side of the field? :slappy:

    Wins over Wiscy (who lost to tOSU that year) and KS ST. make a team great? Sorry fellow Buckeye but no. Kelly had a nice run (great, no) but lost to any team that punched them in the mouth. Like Boise St., twice. And of course the Buckeyes, twice. (And that just feels like something that should never had to have been said.)

    Psychological warfare ? (well, it is Berkeley). At least it wasn't from the back of the end zone.

    What you're telling me is unless a team goes undefeated and wins the NC, they aren't great, because that's literally the only thing they didn't accomplish during their peak. As Ohio State fans who lived in the 90's, we should have an appreciation for how hard that is to do. It doesn' mean we didn't have great teams.

    And yeah, winning the Rose Bowl over a Russell Wilson led UW team and a Fiesta Bowl over an 11-1 Kansas State team qualify as big wins in my book.

    Other notable wins include:
    2010 Stanford by 20+ points(led by Luck, they would go 12-1 and win the Orange Bowl finishing #4)
    2011 Stanford by 20+ points(also led by Luck, they would go 11-2 and finish #7)
    2014 Michigan State by 20+ points(who would go 11-2, win the cotton bowl and finish #5)
    2014 Florida State in the Rose Bowl by 39!(led by Winston, it snapped their 26 game win streak)

    Oregon's final ranking:
    2009 #11
    2010 #3
    2011 #4
    2012 #2
    2013 #9
    2014 #2

    There's no shame in losing at a good Boise St team, or that loaded 2011 LSU team, or to us in 09 and 14. Why cheapen two of our biggest wins this century? Again, unless your definition of great is winning the NC, they were great.

    Gotta hand it to Oregon's defense. They were balanced. Gave up 325 yards passing and 311 rushing.

    Just replying to emphasize OR actually hired this guy to help their defense.
