Oregon Ducks just a Lamar Thomas half-jersey from becoming the ‘Canes


As of late this afternoon, the only member of the Oregon Ducks not to be arrested or thrown off the team in the last week is long snapper Barney Coopersmith.

Are There Any Oregon Ducks Not Getting in Trouble [The Big Lead]

    With apparently little proper direction, so much money flying into there or any program will only accelerate the amount and degree of misconduct. They are just a bunch of spoiled thugs plain and simple, and you won’t catch me feeling sorry for them and sympathy for all the damn excuses about “rough” backgrounds and (violin starts playing).

    Compare these jerks to their peers USC and UCLA, who are no poster children, but no doubt the coaching staff has a better handle on things down there.

    Note that many of these big-time Pac-10 players come from the same recruiting grounds in SoCal and in the SF Bay area and only go out of state because they want to play their positions sooner rather than ride pine or gofer for the special teams.

    Many carry a chip on their shoulders too as do the guys at UCLA passed over by USC.

    The same thing happens to many players in Florida who live closest to Miami yet are passed up such that they end up playing for the other schools in Florida.

    Barney Coopersmith needs to learn how to tip the flight attendant on the plane. Doesn’t he understand that “I tip EVERYBODY”? That shit is weak. Weak ass fuck.

    I’m waiting for the study to come out that shows Nike had been using mercury in their 10,000 different helmet designs for Oregon the past decade.

    Nike — hate that firm though they do make some good equipment. They are the Microsoft of athletic gear though. No tears here when they get slammed with a class-action lawsuit.

    Whether subpar to good quality depending on the item and its target market, all the Nike shit is overpriced. Definitely that’s the case for soccer gear including various team jerseys, for which I buy almost always another brand of the same or higher quality for a lower price.

    And I’ve hated their ads that try to make social commentary for quite some time now, and of course they “stand by” Tiger only he’s money when he makes a comeback! We’ll see how women’s groups feel about that in due time though, or will Nike just buy them off too?

    Apparently this is some obscure movie reference from some dude just fuckin’ with us? Kudos to him for generating the blank stares, as even after a Google search this one is lost in translation. Go fill out some BS on Wikipedia and see how long it sticks for your kicks and report back to us? Knock yourself out.

    Dude next time if you are going to do that maybe try posting about something off-topic that more of us really care about like farting!

    He’s actually got it right. Barney Coopersmith is the legend from legendary comedy “My Blue Heaven.”

    Well okay I guess he got it right to go over our heads, as it still does and has nothing to do with Oregon football. 😛

    Nike is over priced if you don’t have the proper income I suppose.

    Even with the right income, I think in these times we know better than to squander when we get ahead again.

    Or if you disagree with that you’ll learn the hard way, generally speaking, like anyone else underwater on their homes or in credit card debt they cannot possibly pay back after unforeseen unemployment and/or high medical expenses.

    And if you are still gainfully employed with solid health insurance (not merely underemployed like record numbers if employed at all) and look down on folks like that because somehow it is ALL their fault, a big FUCK YOU and go give a high hard one to the likes of Rush Limbaugh whilst you are at it.
