How good is Cal? How dangerous is this game?

If the Ducks want to win another conference championship, they have to be mentally prepared for one simple fact: every team on the schedule wants to beat Oregon more than any other team on their schedule, with the possible exception of their traditional rival. In a lot of the cases the traditional rival comes second.

Around the league, the Ducks are cocky and arrogant and privileged. They're the fancy Nike school with the multi-million dollar lockerroom and the sexy cheerleaders. They've administered a lot of embarrassing beatdowns in the last three years, danced in a lot of end zones, and everyone from Aaron Pflugrad to Zach Maynard wants a piece of the Ducks. They want to knock off the school that grabs the headlines and the ESPN facetime. They want to shut up the fast-talking coach. And they want to win a conference title of their own.
