Oregon Ducks vs U$C Part V

I really want to beat these guys!

This from the Orange County Register:

"The Trojans would love to begin re-exerting their dominance by traveling to one of the Pac-10's most hostile environments, sold-out Autzen Stadium, and pacifying the locals.

"Teams don't respect us any more. We've got to get that back," cornerback Terrell Thomas said. "That's what we're all about. Teams have been thinking, 'Oh, we can beat this SC team,' because sometimes we're playing down to their level.

"When we do, they don't come in thinking they're going to get their butt-whipping that they deserve."

Ever wonder why other teams consider USC arrogant?......while Carroll called this Oregon offense one of the best he has seen, nobody around USC sounds particularly intimidated. Maybe it's because Oregon hasn't played a defense like USC's. Or maybe it's the confidence that comes with having dismantled other highly ranked Oregon teams."Oregon is Oregon and it's at their place, the momentum's going to be popping, the crowd's going to be roaring," Maualuga said. "It's going to be a battle of two great teams."

A hunch says these Ducks are really paper tigers."

I really want to beat these guys!
