Always good to get home!
Not much happened during my 2-week absence, did it?……...Easy to stay on top of Oregon stuff, was it?………..Hope so!
But from abroad I did notice a few things had occurred here - like these:
o Civil war victory for Oregon!
o Edward Cheserek named USTFCCCA Athlete of the Year!
o Ashton Eaton named 2015 IAAF Male World Athlete of the Year!
o PAC-12 First Team included 5 UO footballers: Freeman, Johnstone, Nelson, Schneider and Buckner (Defensive Player of the Year)….Schneider won the Vlado Award as college's most accurate football kicker!
o Oregon basketball went 2-1!
o Offensive Coordinator Scott Frost departed for Central Florida!
o UO's new track recruiting class ranked: Men #1 in the country; Women #4!
o 2 losses for Chip Kelly; BUT - a big win for the 5-7 Eagles over the 10-2 Patriots today!
o Marcus Mariota had set a Tennessee rookie passing yardage record; BUT then he ran for an 87-yard TD in the Titans win today (see it on the Internet)!
Anything else I missed?
Now it's on to the Alamo Bowl vs. TCU on January 2nd. We were there 2 years ago when the Ducks stuffed Texas 30 to 7!…….See you again soon. -- FB
