Today is a sad day in Duck land. It’s very unlikely that the Ducks still have a chance to make it to the national title game.
With the overtime loss they took to Stanford last night, the Ducks will surely drop plenty of spots in the BCS rankings. So disappointing! The Kansas State Wildcats took a big loss against Baylor too. The Ducks would have slid into the 1st place spot, but instead they lost 14-17 to the Stanford Cardinal.
Personally, I had plans to go to Miami for the BCS championship. I was also going to go back to South Carolina and visit friends and family, and go to Orlando to visit a friend and go to Disney World. Now that the Ducks won’t be playing in Miami I won’t be going to the East Coast.
The Ducks could possibly not even go to the Rose bowl this season after this unexpected loss. It feels like going from top to bottom as a result of one field goal. It’s a very painful reality – many cried.
This week will be one of the more gloomy weeks on the University of Oregon campus. Good thing Thanksgiving is this week; that will hopefully bring people’s spirits up.
