    Where did I say I was a Duck fan?

    I said I grew up a Duck fan. Which is true. And that I no longer was.

    I don't have a specific definition as I'm not sure there really is one. My experience with SPC is he's light-hearted and poking fun at a lot of topics, doesn't take too much serious here, but doesn't really cross lines. I will say, with not having a definition of a troll, I know one when I see one. I don't know SPC personally, but he's half the troll that 90% of the posters here are.

    I can be a dick sometimes and get carried away. But I grow on you. Just ask @Propagandist.

    Notice how @STOMP didn't respond to show me saying I was a Duck fan?

    This made me chuckle. I hope he brings his chainsaw if he does decide to go to the game.

    LOL...at least the article stated the obvious: "the Trojans are the media darlings again"

    I think the Beavers are a bit over-hyped right now. I see a legitimate offense and a suspect defense. Which ironically is the same mix for USC and they just lost a DLine starter for the season; in a very shallow front-7

    so Beavers +13.5 sure looks like it would have been a decent bet. I wonder how many people have bet the Beavers +13.5 and the Trojans -5. Decent chance to win both ways with those bets.

    I'd anticipate a shootout with 80 combined points and 1000 combined yards. Which probably means it will be a 13-7 game

    by the way, as a dedicated Duck fan and alum I say: Go Beavs!

    Yes, this is one game where I want the Beavs to win badly.

    I think the Beavs defense is better than people are giving them credit for. They certainly do a good job of forcing turnovers.

    How are the Beavs over-hyped? They are barely getting votes for the Top-25 despite some quality wins.

    Ducks, by comparison, were plucked and slaughtered and then beat BYU last week and are #15.

    I'm not bashing either team, by the way, as I root for both so I'm glad the Ducks are up at #15. It's just hard for me to feel like the Beavs are over-hyped.

    I was talking about hype here in Oregon. And I don't think the Ducks are #15 worthy right now

    I dunno if I’d call it “hype”, but I guess that’s semantics/perspective. I just see a bunch of Beavs fans that are happy to see the Beavs not be a punching bag and hoping for more growth.

    I’d say the Ducks are over-hyped, especially nationally (agreed with your assessment that they are probably not worthy of the #15 ranking), though my die-hard Duck friends are already writing off the season as a failure after that Georgia game.

    I guess I see it as Beavs fans feeling like the glass is half-full, which Ducks fans are seeing it as glass half-empty.

    when my autocorrect changed Beavs to Beans in my most recent post, I decided to go back and look at my previous post, saw the “Beans” and then saw your post. Epic.

    My post has been spilled…
