ROSE BOWL:

Today: Oregon vs. Ohio State, 2 p.m. TV: ABC Radio: 700-AM

LOS ANGELES – Oregon was pronounced dead by the college coroner the Thursday before Labor Day after the Ducks played like pond scum in a horrific season-opening defeat at Boise State.

Ohio State allegedly packed it in Sept. 12 when it lost at home to USC and forfeited all credibility with the civilized world in “prove-it” games against schools outside the comfy Big Ten confines.

The Rose Bowl was listing toward USC and the winner of Iowa-Penn State and there was nothing anyone was going to do about it.

OK, so how did we get here? More.

I'd like to go on the record as stating "Ducks" is a horrible name for a football team. (Yes, I can hear the gnashing of teeth from the newsroom). Anyone care to predict the outcome of today's game?
