Portland State scored in the first quarter against Oregon. Colorado couldn't do it till the 4th. ๐Ÿ˜…

As for CU, a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator, a new defensive coordinator, almost an entirely new roster of players - and they get steamrolled by an established program, playing at home. Imagine that.

Go Ducks!

John... great...but how about that Utah defense? Held UCLA, and this is not a typo, to 9 yards on 32 rushes for a 0.3 average. They also sacked vaunted Freshman Dante Moore seven times, forced him into a pick six, and allowed him to only complete 15 passes on 35 attempts.

Sweet pics you two! Wish there was one of the run by Casey Rogers on the fake punt!

Crushed the loud coach. Prime is now in the 11 PM slot. Proving once again what John Wayne said, "It ain't braggin' if you can do it." Lanning led quietly until he fired up the troops then blew Deion off the field. Deion and his band of transfers learned what a real team is today. And. y'know... he couldn't do it.

Maybe this will shut up the national media. They had already said he was so incredibly great he would be moving to the NFL next year. I'm surprised they didn't pencil him in for a Super Bowl win in the next 3 years too. I guess making a mockery of any semblance of athletes going to school and nepotism with your kids blew up in his face. Its bad enough I cannot read a news outlet without seeing the ugly faces of Trump and Musk every day, but the incessant boosterism of THE COACH PRIME (sunglasses for sale on Amazon) was way over the top.

Though Ducks dominated, still too many sloppy penalties. Halftime in Pullman now, and Beavers struggle. Cougars are fired up and OSU adjustments will be interesting to see. Cardinal hanging tough in Palo Alto. Wow, what a fun Saturday! Oh yeah, GO BIG GREEN!

John, Thank you for the game pictures. Yes, the PAC-12 is loaded, but there has been a leveling within the heirarchy. I was impressed with OSU's run blocking and RBs, and Wazzoo seems much more consistent and a tough out; UW and Michael Penix look very good offensively, and the Utes have the best defense; the Ducks have more work to do but they are improved (particularly Special Teams and their entire defense); the Trojans are talented and inconsistent, and UCLA just experienced a really good defense at altitude; the Stanford-Arizona outcome was much closer than expected.

Thanks again for the pictures and commentary. I remain VR, J Horvath

Spectacular photos! It's hard to capture visually the essence of a football team that often doesn't seem to want to hit anyone, or get hit, but Shedeur's massive rib padding comes pretty close.

Colorado and the spread, and the over were the popular bets and neither happened. Draftkings and Fanduel have become so big that they're determining outcomes of games.
