ESPN: Oregon Not Dead Yet

It's too early to bury Oregon for its loss at the hands of LSU on Saturday, especially since the Ducks' offense and defense weren't responsible for the majority of the 13-point loss. There are plenty of national championship contenders that didn't dig themselves a hole in the opening weekend, but there's a lot more football to be played as well. Oregon (and Notre Dame, for that matter) need to clean up correctable special teams mistakes to get back on track.

Not having read the article yet--go Ducks! (This will help the Tigers if they lose 1, too. If they go undefeated (still doubtful at this point--I mean, they've only played one game, for goodness sake), of course they'll be in the BCS CG.

Notre Dame just needs to hold onto the damn ball. They convert just one of their three (four?) redzone turnovers into a FG and they win that game.

Hail Hydra!
