Oregon taking care of business against Colorado

Kenjon Barner AP

And despite what current economic numbers may indicate this election season, business is at an all-time high for Oregon.

The No. 2 Ducks have jumped out to an early 28-0 35-0 42-0* lead over Colorado… in the second quarter. Kenjon Barner already has over 100 yards rushing and two scores — when will Barner get in the Heisman discussion? — and De’Anthony Thomas isn’t far behind with 97 yards rushing and a punt return for a touchdown.

Marcus Mariota is playing efficiently with eight completions for 121 yards and a score.  In all, Oregon is outgaining the Buffs 340-64. Backups could very well be in by the start of the third quarter.

The numbers for Oregon are impressive, but to be expected. Conversely, watching and/or rooting for Colorado football has to be one of the great pains of the 21st century.

    Sad, but this what the Ducks have to do to impress the polls.

    I like the Ducks, but I don’t think this does anything to impress the voters. Voters are smart enough to know that Colorado is horrible.

    It’s a sad state of affairs in Boulder right now. That team isn’t even remotely competitive.
