It’s 4:00 PM PDT which means that the moment is upon us: college football season is officially underway!
ESPN is broadcasting the first big game of the year as we speak, between South Carolina and NC State. Okay, so “big” game is being used loosely. But at least it’s not Wofford vs. San Diego State or anything like that.
The nightcap of their CFB double-header features a battle of two UW rivals, as the hated Oregon Ducks travel to Idaho to take on the slightly-less-hated Boise State Broncos. Personally, I find rooting for either team to be a tough task in this one.

A gaggle of University of Oregon basketball players were cited by police after shooting metal BBs at ducks and geese Monday night.
Freshmen Michael Dunigan, Josh Crittle, and Teondre Williams were each served with court orders for their role in the harassment of the water fowl at Eugene’s Alton Baker Park.
Police spokeswoman Jenna LaBounty stated that it was unclear whether any of the birds had been injured or killed during the shootings, though the charges placed upon the trio were for discharging firearms, rather than animal cruelty.
One can only speculate on the players’ motive for firing at the birds. Did they need to eat the birds to survive? Had the birds at one time or another offended the players? Did the birds attack the players first?
While the reason for the shooting has yet to be revealed, one thing remains clear. Duck on duck violence has been taken to a whole new level, and it needs to be stopped. Stop the violence!
