The Conservatives also Rise

Larry 3

by Larry Leonard

Then there was the bad political weather which happens not out of Man, but in a large cycle like droughts and floods and the gentle times that follow the fight against the fascists. The enemies are always the fascists. They march into the cities intent on bringing revolution of their

Pigskin Pete: Stanford vs. UCLA (again) and Pac12 is a Wrap

Unknown

By Fred Delkin

It looks like Stanford will whip UCLA again and claim the Pac12 2012 title. The Cardinal foiled Oregon’s effort to

win a fourth straight Pac12 crown, while also dashing the Ducks’ national championship aspirations. Webfoot fans now must settle for a Fiesta Bowlappearance, most likely against Kansas State. Despite being edged

obama straight on

By Art Hyland

“…Barack Obama loves the future because that’s where all his accomplishments are.”

The more things change, the more they stay the same. In an unusually objective moment four years ago, the New York Times’ David Brooks decided to put some fleeting thoughts on paper for all

football on tee

By Fred Delkin

Our state’s football fans have never had it so good so far. Oregon and Oregon State are the only unbeaten Pac12 teams halfway through this college football season…and very likely to stay that way following Saturday’s matchups. Oregon is a prohibitive favorite to crush Colorado in front of Autzen Stadium’s

Grid Bowl Selections Dependent on Civil War

Pigskin Pete

By Fred Delkin

History surely does repeat itself…exactly one year ago, a California team visited Autzen Stadium and thanks to the home team missing an easy field goal, USC walked off with a win and Oregon was eliminated from the national title race. This time around, the Autzen faithful groaned as the

An Open Letter to Obama Voters

Obama in a church

By Matt Barber

Did you vote for Barack Obama in 2008? A lot of people did – obviously.

What a time. There’s still room for improvement, but what a testimony to just how far we as a nation have come in terms of racial harmony, tolerance and diversity.

Only decades earlier a man like

Pigskin Pete: Oregon Teams Stay Pristine; Bay Area Stages ‘Big Game’

roses and raspberries

By Fred Delkin

A rare euphoria lingers at both of Oregon’s major universities and is likely to remain after this weekend’s grid marches. Oregon rides high with a 6-0 season record, while their OSU neighbors continue unsullied at 5-0. The Ducks travel to Arizona State, while the Beavers host Utah. Pigskin went 5-1

The Most Important Election in History

Constitution

By Matt Barber

Who says Republicans and Democrats can’t agree? Every four years, politicos and pundits, both left and right, come together in a harmonious hymn of hyperbole: “This is the most important election in history!” they sing.

I think hyperbole is responsible for all of the world’s problems. Still, this

Pigskin Pete: Ducks Rest, Bevos Hurt, Sun Devils Threaten

PAC 12 symbol

By Fred Delkin

Best Duck team ever? Alabama coach Nick Saban must think so…his silly criticism of the spreading use of no-huddle, spread offenses, a Duck trademark, certifies that Saban feels threatened. He coaches a “huddle up and overpower ‘em” attack, the antithesis of Chip Kelly’s emphasis on speed. Halfway through this season,
