i'm curious, Beaver Nation. With the Ducks playing for it all tomorrow, are you rooting for us to win or lose?
Personally, I root for the Beavers to win every game where they are not playing the Ducks (unless we need you to lose due to a standings issue). Yes, we may refer to you as 'little brother,' but while nobody wants to lose to their little brother, they are still family, and when you go outside the family, I want you to represent the state well and kick some ass. I can still remember the College World Series a few years back. While I wasn't planning my day around watching those games, I did take pride in a team from my state winning those championships.
That said, I also understand that the relationship is fairly more contentious coming from your side. I know the reactions are going to be mixed. I know that some hardcore Duck haters hope we get slaughtered by Auburn, and some will wish us well (the only Pac-10 team I root against during bowl season is the Fuskies).
So give me your thoughts, Beaver Nation. What do you want to see tomorrow night?
