Ducks already have the hammer in PAC-12 North, provided they can nail things down

After one full week of conference play, Oregon controls their own destiny in the PAC-12 North. All the other teams in the division have a conference loss. The Ducks sit alone in first place at 1-0. There are still 8 more hurdles to clear, but that’s a great start. The danger is that the rest of the conference will cannibalize each other so much over the course of the league play...

Chris Petersen, You’re Not In Boise — Or The WAC — Anymore

Stanford WR Runs Over Entire Washington Defense For TD (Video)

Stanford’s Ty Montgomery is a beast, and the Washington Huskies defense found out the hard way. The 6’2″, 220-pound wideout caught a pass on 3rd-and-2 that was good enough for a first down, but he decided he wanted more. Montgomery ran over the entire Huskies defense-dragging bodies along the sideline-—as he made his way into the end zone.

UW Huskies vs Illini football: brutally honest game preview

Cubism is an early-20th-century avant-garde art movement pioneered by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso.
