I'm Too Old For This

The Oregon Ducks were introduced by ESPN as being in “a special costume designed specifically for this contest.” Give me a break. Football players don’t wear “costumes,” they wear uniforms, and they don’t decorate those uniforms with feathers, for God’s sake. Toe dancers wear costumes decorated with feathers.

The Auburn Tigers are National Champions, but this sure as hell did not look like two teams with too much practice time prior to the game. Like missing a two yard pass to a wide open receiver in the end zone. Or holding Oregon to zero yards on its first three downs and then giving up thirty yards on fourth and ten. Or, hello, this might be a fake punt.

Anyway, Oregon can go back home and start designing their new feathered costumes for the Pac-12 tea dances next year.
