Think Out Loud


Pete Springer/OPB

Even if you’re not a football fan or associated with the University of Oregon, you no doubt know that there’s a big football game on Monday. At 5:30 pm the UO Ducks face the Auburn Tigers for the much anticipated BCS National Championship. But some people say this game is about much more than football… it’s about the country’s perception of UO and, arguably, the state as a whole. On this show we’ll find out what’s happening in Glendale and what a win could mean for Oregon. Will you be watching the game?

Are you travelling to Arizona? Why? What does a win mean to you? How do you think a championship status will affect the way the rest of the country views UO, and the state as a whole? What does it mean to be a champion?

UPDATE, 1/10/11 at 8:30am:

We’re going to make a major turn in the last third of the show to talk about the shootings this weekend in Glendale, AZ.
