This was beautiful, thanks Oregon.

Now I want Mich to run the table on the Big 10.  Which would mean the Big 10s best team couldn't beat a Div I-aa let alone a Pac 10 team

 :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

I wouldnt dog on the pac-10 too much its playing the best football out of anyone.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. A s part of their unofficial visit, three prized Michigan football recruits received a campus tour, a free lunch and special necklaces that had each of their names printed on them.

Oregon beat Michigan 39-7 on Saturday.

But before that, Wolverines head coach Lloyd Carr could have told you that Edwin Baker rushed for 210 yards the night before in his high school game in suburban Detroit, and that teammate Joevall Hoseay had 150 yards rushing. And that Antoine Mason, a 6-foot-2 receiver and defensive back, has 4.5 speed in the 40.

Carr shook their hands before the game.

Then Oregon shook their minds.

The Ducks ran, passed, blocked and tackled. Oregon's offense came within 21 yards of setting a stadium record for total offense. The Ducks' defense had four sacks and 14 tackles for losses.

Boos and jeers aside, it got so quiet in Michigan's home stadium Saturday you could have read a book or taken a nap or just lounged around somewhere between the 20s, enjoying the sunset with 109,733 fellow fans presumably meditating on Carr's spleen.

The Big House turned into The Big Mouse.

After the game, No. 1 booster Phil Knight, No. 2 booster and athletic director Pat Kilkenny and a host of other Ducks fans, including Harold Reynolds and Ahmad Rashad, slapped backs and celebrated. Ducks quarterback Dennis Dixon, who we're told threw up in the locker room at halftime, wiped his chin and did an interview on national television. And running back Jonathan Stewart told reporters he believes the Ducks can win a national championship.

Said Stewart: "I won't stop staying it."

A few feet away, a Michigan chaperone was trying to pry those recruits up the tunnel, out of the stadium and far away from all the Northwest propaganda. But the recruits didn't budge. They just stood, watching Oregon dance and listening to Stewart. And what did they think?

Said Hoseay: "I want to go to Oregon."

The other two recruits nodded.

Then Mason said he was considering more than stadium size and program history. Baker said he couldn't remember Michigan losing that badly. And then Timothy Hopkins, their high school coach who drove them the 45 miles from suburban Detroit to Ann Arbor for the visit, jotted down his telephone number and handed it to someone in lightning yellow and said, "Call me. I got players."

Oregon's victory came in too many ways to count Saturday.

Dixon finally won a big road game. Defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti, whose defense had given up 27 or more points in five consecutive games, coached a defense that held Michigan to a single touchdown. Oregon, which had lost its past three nationally televised games by a combined score of 103-38, turned Michigan's season into a pinata.

But all that looked stump ugly next to those recruits.

There was no facet of Oregon's victory more integral to the future of the program than the look on the faces of those three Wolverines recruits as they wondered what it would be like to wear a Ducks uniform. Hoseay even looked down at his necklace and, eek, said, "They didn't even spell my name right."

Bad day for the Wolverines, I suppose.

Remember, there was a time that what Oregon had working for it when it came to recruiting against the top Bowl Championship Series conference members were groovy uniform combinations -- 384 of them. Compared with Michigan's 860 all-time victories, 11 national titles and a stadium that could hold the population of a lot of small U.S. cities, Oregon built its angle on fashion.

Now Bellotti's program has a 2-0 start and a victory over Michigan, the Ducks' second in a row against the Wolverines. And not lost here is that the 2007 Ducks not only beat Michigan, but did it on national television during a week everyone was focused on Michigan. And they did it in front of the largest crowd to ever see a UO football game, bigger than the 102,247 at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 2, 1995.

So is Michigan that bad? Or is Oregon that good?

The ESPN radio updates that went out across the country were done by a guy in the press box who hollered into the telephone in the third quarter: "Michigan's defense is making Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon look like a Heisman candidate!" Which is only to say, as it should be in Week 2, the Ducks have work to do in the eyes of the country.

But not in the eyes of those recruits.

And I'm not sure much else matters right now.

this is what the win does for Oregon... when 3 Michigan recruits say after the game that they want to go to Oregon well on a Michigan visit. Now Oregon controls its own destiny if it defends its home the only lose I could see on the road is fucla.

I didn't mean that as a dog on the Pac-10, I am saying the not-so-Big 10 is Not as good as the Pac this year.  If Mich wins out, then the best Big 10 team got owned by the 3rd or 4th best Pac 10 team.

Great win for you OBF, well done to your guys! Loved the fake statue of liberty play, that was gorgeous.

On a different note, LMAO at Michigan.

yes I am smiling.

Watched the game today in Seattle with Jeff Garcias family.

I cant be much happier.  Dixon proved a whole lot of doubters wrong. Man I love this spread offense a lot more then Gary "Ill only run 3 plays" Crowtons spread offense.

Gotta give props to the pac-10 so far they are doing there thing.

This was a big win for oregon... it was still michigan. This was in the BIG house. This was 624 yds of total offense, the second most against a Michigan team in their HISTORY!!. This is their worst defeat since 1968. And we fumbled on their 6 yd line. We got held out of the end zone on 4th and goal. We missed a field goal. This EASILY could have been 50 something to 7.

Now every team comes through Autzen... only hard road game left is fucla.



I would say this victory is equally impressive to Oregons program, as USF's victory was @Auburn

As much as I'll admit that Michigan played terribly against Oregon and that Oregon deserved to win, I think if you're going to say Oregon could have easily won by more, you have to say it JUST as easily could have been a close game and potentially a Michigan win if they had executed on both sides of the ball. As well as Oregon played (and I certainly wouldn't take anything away from them), Michigan rolled up a lot of yards and didn't have much to show for it in terms of points and we couldn't tackle at all. Our offense has been inexplicably inept. With four year starters at QB and RB and the best receiving corps in the country, this offense should be one of the best in the country. There really isn't much more to say about that game from a Michigan perspective. We need to be resilient and put these first two games behind us.

I do have one thing to say about Oregon fans though... I was impressed with the class that they showed. I was out at local Ann Arbor bars both nights and talked to many Oregon fans. They were obviously happier than we were on Saturday night, but still none of them ragged on Michigan.

college gameday is heading for Oregon next week for the Cal game (if Oregon or cal dont choke against the bottom feeders in the pac-10 this week)... Ill be there fri night.

Jamere Holland officially has transfered from U$C to Oregon... after winning his appeal after Carroll tried holding him back from transfering to Oregon. He enrolls this week will play next year. Was a 4-5 star recruit (depending what service u look at). They said he was the fastest player on USC.
