Ducks Eaten By Wildcats

Sometimes you see something that is in no way related to something else, but somehow describes it perfectly. This is one of those times.

That feline represents recent giant killer, Arizona(the Wildcats) who has shattered the national title hopes of more than one school over the past few years. It encompasses all of the Arizona players, but particularly Antoine Cason who made the most of senior night by returning a punt and an interception for touchdowns.

And the ducks? Well, they represent Oregon of course. One of them is probably Dennis Dixon who unfortunately reinjured his knee early in the game and couldn't continue. Without him the Ducks were swallowed up by the Wildcats, and Dixon's Heisman hopes probably ended up in the cat's belly as well. Another one is most likely backup quarterback Brady Leaf who never seemed to get into a groove, and whose lack of mobility shutdown Oregon's strong option attack. The last little ducky represents Oregon Coach Mike Belloti who had positioned his team for a shot at the national title, but couldn't seem to adjust the offense once Dixon went out. With Dixon gone it felt like the playbook had been cut into pieces and put back together with tape and a prayer.

After last night's game, I'm not so sure that being ducky #1, suffering the longest and being eaten last is such a good thing.

Oh yeah, the crazy toys to the side? Yeah, those represent the Arizona students who "rushed" the field with over a minute left. At least they were respectful enough to stay off of it until the game was actually over.
