The Bruins have decided that they are going to get rid of Head Coach Rick Neuheisel after Friday night’s game regardless of the outcome. We think that Neuheisel got a bad rap this season, as he is representing the South Division and does have at least a puncher’s chance of making the Rose Bowl, more than the likes of USC and Stanford can say. That being said, the team was absolutely brutal in the regular season finale against the Men of Troy at the LA Coliseum last weekend, getting toasted 50-0 in a game that truly was never even that close.

This is the final home game for a number of Oregon seniors, and it could also be the final hurrah for RB LaMichael James. One way or the other, this is his last shot at claiming a spot in New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist. It would be remarkable to think that a man that missed two weeks of the season due to injury could be in line for college football’s most illustrious individual honor, but over 1,700 total yards and 15 TDs later, James certainly has the numbers to stack up against anyone in the country,

The question here isn’t whether Oregon is going to win, it’s by how much. Historically, Head Coach Chip Kelly has no problem running up the score on the opposition, just as was the case last year when the Ducks took a 32-3 lead into the locker room against these Bruins and came out and dropped another 28 points in the second half. When it’s all said and done, this isn’t going to be anywhere near the sendoff that Neuheisel saw coming. The Bruins might lose this one by 50 as well.
