Another Great Moment in Ducks Football!

Now to the world of sport, where we have an exciting development today in the 2005 college football season. I quote from the L.A. Times:

The rich tradition of Oklahoma football now includes one of the most punishing losses in the history of the college game.The Sooners lost an entire season.When the NCAA announced Wednesday that it was vacating all of Oklahoma's wins from the 2005 season because three players accepted improper payments from a car dealer, the hallowed program took a historically uncommon hit.The Sooners' 8-4 season becomes 0-4. A come-from-behind win over Oregon in the Holiday Bowl? Never happened.

Yes, that's right! In an unusual come-from-behind-twenty-months-later nailbiter, the Ducks have WON THE 2005 HOLIDAY BOWL!!!

This is my second favorite dodgy victory over Oklahoma in recent memory!

Go Ducks,

I can't help but notice the Disney copyright at the bottom and yes come to think of it that duck does look familiar. Does U of O have some kind of licensing thing happening? Congratulations and enjoy the gloating!

Go Ducks! I have no clue about sports (shocking)...but loved The Mighty Ducks movie!

Now clearly Oregon should've been in a better bowl that year.

@Dug: Ah, the story of my alma mater's occasional use of a licenced Disney character as a mascot, and the legal discussions pertaining thereto, is a long and convoluted story. And a terminally boring one.

@Jenny!: Well, I have no clue about the Mighty Ducks movie... but every fall, for some reason, I seem to love the Ducks.

@Chuck: After our trip to Eugene last year, I'm just grateful that Oregon is still playing in Division I.
