Guess who just got back today? Them wild-eyed boys that had been away
Haven't changed, haven't much to say
But man, I still think them cats are crazy
They were asking if you were around
How you was, where you could be found
Told them you were living downtown
Driving all the old men crazy
The boys are back in town
I can't believe it's already day three of "I Heart Duck Week." It seems to be going by so fast, and the comment threads keep getting longer. I have to admit, the civility of the threads are surprisingly cordial, with the usual exception, and I can't help but wonder how difficult it is for fans on both sides to refrain from the trolling that has become such a common place ... but less of that, and more links!
Football Study hall summarized the advanced stats for the Husky Stanford game. Conclusion: Stanford won because of awesome field position, some kid named Ty Montgomery, and a whole lot of prayer.

Here's an update on Keith Price's thumb, from the mouth of Keith Price. Honestly, he's just as vague as Sark, but hey, he will be playing this Saturday, which should be good news.
SVP and Russillo interviewed Oregon Coach Mark Helfrich today. Take a listen, if anything you get to hear what he sounds like ...
Dan Rubenstein, who happens to be 0-2 ATS picking against UW, decided not to buck his current trend and did so once again ... this has to be good news for Husky fans, right?
Center, Olin Kreutz became an inaugural member of Polynesian Football HOF. This definitely fits UW's deep roots with Polynesians. Way to go Olin!
