    Oregon Athletics has posted a great video about Ed Reinhardt, a CU player who suffered a very serious brain injury at the CU-Oregon game in Eugene in 1984.

    Very classy and awesome. I really like the Pac-12 teams.

    The Pac is a big step up in conference-mates.

    I'm okay with it as long as he didn't get a ducks backpack.

    I was a student in those years and remember how thankful all Buff fans were, for the support the Reinhardts received in Oregon. Cute: the woman's athletic group is called the Daisy Ducks

    Ed Reinhardt played at CU before I was born, but he is from my hometown and went to the same high school that I went to. My senior year of high school he and his father visited my sports medicine class and I'll never forget meeting them. They were two of the kindest people that I have ever met.

    Also, watching that video was the first time I had seen what happened to Ed. An emotional video for sure, but a very classy thing for Oregon to do.

    That's a really cool video. Makes it hard to hate the Ducks.

    Not for me Alfred. Their average non oregon football history educated fan makes it easy.

    I agree to a point. Some teams' fans are enough to hate them (SEC teams), while some programs are so disgusting and ****ty that everything about them makes them easy to hate (Ohio State). And some programs are just made to be hated (kNU, UT, Aggy). I agree that the average 16-year old Duck fan who doesn't know anything about football apart from what he learned playing video games makes it really hard to ever root for them in any game ever, I don't know that I can manage the hate that I feel for other programs - especially now that Kelly is gone. Perhaps something will happen in the future to change that, but I'm just not feeling it right now.

    I will say this - I never felt any bad feelings towards the Beavs before last Saturday, but after they threw that ****ing TD pass up 27 with 4 minutes to go - **** them long and hard. So it apparently doesn't take much.

    My memory could be wrong, but didn't one of the younger boys end up playing for the Ducks? While I realize a lot of the young duck fans (sadly I am young enough to be apart of that group) are douchebags, but there are a lot of good ones out there.
