Had this video in my inbox this morning and I almost didn't watch it. I'm glad I made it though the whole thing though because it's homerism at its finest. This is the Oregon feed of the Ducks' loss to Arizona last week and for a good 4 minutes Oregon portrays the Arizona Fans as heathens and classless for being on the field.
It takes awhile to pick up and the audio to kick in, but take a listen/view....
I can't really judge because I wasn't there, but it really seemed like the Wildcat fans were just happy to have the game locked up, and an upset on the books. I seriously doubt if they were taunting Dixon and if that's the case the OSN commentators just like sore losers and homers.
Also, hasn't the student body at Oregon rushed the field like 14 times this year. I know they did against USC and ASU. This is DIVISION ONE FOOTBALL!!! Someone is going to be taunted, but to trash a whole fan base is just nonsense.
Update: Cameron who originally sent us this video had a letter published in the Oregon paper. Kudos to him.
