Misery seeks company.

. EC, you keep saying the Beavers are your "nearest competition." Assuming you don't mean that geographically, how do you figure? The Beavers have won 8,9, 10 games the last several seasons and haven't had a losing season since, what, 2005? And prior to that, you'd have to go back to 2001. In recent years, OSU has had the second most-successful in-conference record, second only to USC. What, is it the land-grant thing? The fact that we both have an insufferable in-state rival? Your closests competition is UW. Geographically and athletically. The Washington Schools in this millennium have been what the Oregon schools were in the 1980's: the next best thing to a bye. The overtime Apple Cup that sent the dawgs to an 0-12 season was this decade's
equivalent of the 1983 "Toilet Bowl" Civil War, which ended in a 0-0 tie. And the bad news is, they're coming back. Fast. After UW? Maybe Arizona? But what was the score when you played them last year? Another 50-point blow-out? Those shellackings should tell you something. Your Cougars aren't even beginning to be competitive. You have a MAJOR talent gap. You're not in the same zip code as "the corner," much less turning it. The athletes you DO have seem to save their best fight for Fraternity Row. Look, I know what it's like when your team is so far down, the gutter is a step up. But really, your "article," is like celebrating a touchdown when you're down 55-7 (something a coug would know). Misery seeks company, I get that. You'd like to think that someone, somewhere is as bad as your Cougars. Your closest rival? You recently hired their Head Coach. How's that workin' for ya?
