I called it---back in September


No, not that the Civil War would be a competition for the Rose Bowl, or a prediction as to who would win.

I called it that a certain ringer, thought to be suspended for the year, would partake in the festivities, on Dwight Jaynes' blog here.   The money quote:

 

 

Who suspects that Blount’s season-long suspension–might just be lifted before the end of the season? Otherwise, why permit him to practice–if its anything more than lifting weights and such, he would be taking reps from other players. And in college football, practice time and running the plays is a VALUABLE commodity.

Hopefully, this won’t happen–but if the Ducks manage to be 7-4 or so heading into the Civil War, I could just see a whole bunch of sanctimonious nonsense coming out of Eugene about how he’s reformed, is Truly and Deeply Sorry, and deserves to play in the final game of his college career.

 

Obviously, I whiffed on the 7-4, for both teams.  :)  But after the Stanford debacle, Blount was reinstated, but didn't play in the next two games--a romp over ASU and the nail-biter at Arizona.  But there he was, back in the Civil War.

Something tells me that the Ducks had no intention of keeping Blount suspended, if his presence would matter one bit.
