Oregon tight end: Boise State "really doesn't rub right with me"

There is clearly no love for Boise State in Eugene, Ore. Senior tight end Ed Dickson is the latest Oregon player to express contempt for the Broncos, who defeated Oregon 37-32 last year.

"When I think about Boise State ... they will be in the category of one of those teams that really doesn't rub right with me," Dickson told The Oregonian.

Boise State safety Jeron Johnson was ejected for his hit on Dickson in the fourth quarter of last year's game.

Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli called the loss "embarrassing" earlier this summer.

"It's kind of embarrassing having them come over here and beat us on our home field," Masoli said, "but I think this year we'll take it to them."

This video could be why Dickson and Masoli are so eager for this game.

Jackson Hits

The second hit was ridiculous, unsportsmanlike, and worthy of an ejection. As far as the first hit on the QB, that's football. Deal with it, Duck fans!

We'll deal with it alright.

We'll deal with it alright. See you on that blue crap you call a field. Your qb might get to meet TJ Ward two or three times. He'll show you what a real hit is, a legal one. Try finding him on youtube against Oklahoma St.

We'll put probably an average number of points on the donkeys as I think the donkeys would be an average team or worse in the PAC 10. That'd be about 45-50. And just a couple of football hits on your qb. That's as opposed to the illegal hits your team is famous for and that includes the illegal hits your team made in the two games prior to the Oregon game. The Ducks will do it the right way. Enjoy a real football team up close in Boise for the first time.

So he can play on You Tube. How about on a field?

Swamp Hens?

Sozeduck must be as educated as the Vandals for not knowing a
Donkey from a Stallion. I'm still amazed about 2 plays that made the whole outcome of a game. I remember watching Purdue almost beat the Hens and QB Roper got hurt and they squeaked that game out. If they had lost that game, the excuse pansies would have come out of the closet again. Take your shots at everything but remember your ugly 2 toned field and those hidious uniforms are what you are about. (A swamp-hen covered in moss and crud) I like what coach Pete replied about bulletin board material. He said he liked to put inspiring things, how teams and players are doing things right. I know Sozeduck won't get it but his kind never do. It'll be a good game and the players will play hard -both sides- and I know the coaches have more class than to let something stupid happen.

So you did watch the Purdue

So you did watch the Purdue game....funny they played us about the same as BSU! Purdue sucks...Oregon wasn't healthy.

Now the Donkey's are going to face a fully healthy Oregon team...and we'll be on the lookout for those thug hits. Oregon has a reason to not to be too high on BSU.

This is Chip Kelly's third season at Oregon...meaning the recruits he wanted for his offense are beginning to fall into place. That should terrify Donkey fans.

And if you're talking education and are a BSU fan...Please. Oregon is a Pac 10 institution. The Pac by far has the highest academic standards of any major sports conference. BSU? Boise Community College.

Academics______ Yes!!

On the 2008 BCS Academic Top 25 BSU #7 Oregon #25 So continue your fantasy world mud-hen, swamp-hen, or whatever. Thank you for looking up from the bottom.

Thank You for Proving My Point!

You're a COMMUNITY COLLEGE. That poll is only to show how many players graduated...showing how easy it is to graduate from that school. BSU being a Community College and still not getting first makes me laugh even harder.

You think Boston College and Northwestern have better academics than Stanford or Cal-Berekely? There's a reason only 2 Pac 10 schools are on this list..we have the most difficult schools in the nation.

BSU is only decent because they have low standards. Players that couldn't get into the Pac 10 because of their transcript are welcomed with open arms. This is College Football...COLLEGE Football. You're in the WAC and will never get out because of your academics. Not even to the MWC..which is already pretty bad on its' own.

You're kidding RIGHT?

We're talking football here Quackmate. We take pride in graduating our players. You should. Both Boston College and Northwestern are pretty serious in their academics. You really think that just because your a Pac-10 school that you are No.1 at everything? Stand up out of the water, your head needs the oxygen. You are vapor locked. You are just a bunch of underachievers, who has the best facilities and still expects everyone to roll over for you cream-puffs. Your players couldn't spell Oregon so they just put an "O" on the helmet. That's more like your level.


It is funny how a team with the most hidious uniforms on the face of the Earth would think a blue field is crap.

We aren't going on the field to RUB, right/wrong/low tar menthol

Holiday Bowl Late Hit

Would Ward be the "Angelic" Uck that lit up the OSU on a NON CALLED, except by everyone who saw it plus the announcers, late hit that injured the OSU QB in the 3rd qtr?
Since the QB didn't play well after that we could point to that cheap shot as a game changer.

I love the comments. The stupid Duck players are TOO emotional and they'll be the ones jumping off sides, hitting late, over pursuing and etc.

Dunno what you're talking about..

That Ward hit was legit. The QB was a ball carrier and Ward SMASHED him. Perfectly legal..the only flag was holding on the offense.

If you're talking about the Nick Reed hit...Yeah it was late and uncalled for. At least he didn't go helmet to helmet. He didn't even use the crown of his helmet, he used his shoulder against Robinson's body. Not to mention it was on his non-throwing side meaning it didn't hurt his throwing shoulder. Other legit hits were "game-changers". That was hardly a cheap shot compared to BSU's hits.

Don't believe me? Go look it up. Next year...put BSU in Oklahoma States shoes minus the bad first half for Oregon and you have the outcome for September 3rd.



Well said.

Ducks don't have to take

Ducks don't have to take cheap shots because they can actually play unlike the donkeys..

Go Ducks!!!
Prediction: Broncos will publicly apologize for last year before the end of the first quarter. Then Kellen Moore will cry... Then Johnson will cry.... The coach P will cry... Then they will declare teh Ducks the true winners and give them back the game they stole last year!!!

The Video Title Says It All...

Read it once or twice out loud and really try to soak it in.



Oregon... Always complaining. Always Holier Than Thou!

For the past 15 years duckfans have complained about everything. Nothing ever happens in oregon's favor. The ducks are always having phantom penalties called against them. The ducks are always screwed by the Pac 10. Blah! Blah! Blah!
The majority of Pac 10 fans hate oregon. The uniforms, players and duckfans are just horrible. Ask anyone in this conference. The fans may not like Washington, USC or UCLA; BUT THEY HATE oregon! HATE! HATE! HATE!
Now as for the Boise State hits… I do not dispute that these hits are marginal at best. BUT… they are nothing like having a team captain kicking an opposing Cal player in the back during the kickoff of an ABC National Game in 2006!

Remember Dante Rosario.

I hate duckfans. I hate them (and their state) so much I cannot capitalize their state's or team's name.

Ain't Bronco Nation Great!

You guys are just awesome. Seriously, the Oregon W on the 3rd wouldn't be the same without you guys around.

True Blue!

Oregon W?

Would the Oregon W on the 3rd be for WWWWWAAAAAAMMMMMBBBBBUUUULLLLAAAANNNCCCEEE? (Waambulance?)

The name means 'bad hour' or something like that in conehead-run france and refers to an entire region from canuckistan to mccainicsville. Rumor has it old payette crossed the river to sign a treaty with the walmartians and being late could not find alcohol to celebrate. Dude called it the worst hour of his life and told the map guy to curse the idiots.

getting what?

watching a bunch of sweaty stinky guys lay all over each other and you are getting sexually excited? OK, I always knew people in you-da-ho were a little off.

I don't think that should be an ejection

If the quarterback wouldn't have thrown such an inaccurate pass JJ wouldn't have flat backed dickson. In my opinion it looked as if the pass was almost going towards him. I can see why dickson doesn't like boise state. I wouldn't want to be sat down by Jeron Johnson like that either. "Hitting a defenseless player" haha. That penalty doesn't exist in rugby and it wouldn't have existed 40 years ago in football. And by the way for you oregon fans about moore, I have seen that kid take more hits than most quarterbacks. It won't be anything new for him and he won't complain about it after the game. Win or lose.

Wow...BSU fans...really?

Nobody would want to be cheapshotted by Jeron Johnson like that. Jeron Johnson wouldn't even want it. It's because its CLASSLESS.

The ball was clearly over his head...Dickson was slowing down..he hadn't even turned his head around. Both plays were deserving of ejection. If Powers' hit caused Masoli his game, then it should have costed Powers his game.

But whatever though. That's in the past. Don't worry Donkeys...your season won't begin and end on Sept. 3rd. There's still the WAC title!

What is funny about this oregon game is

that if we win, we will go to a bcs bowl, and oregon will be stuck playing holiday bowl. There is no conceivable way that an at-large spot will be taken by a team that lost to boise state. If anyone has something at stake it is oregon. A loss will end their bcs dreams because BSU will float through their schedule like they always do. priceless


Oregon could still win conference and go to the Rose Bowl.

and beat USC Oregon St and Utah?


What's the matter, character-building anathema? Fraid to win?

act like youve been there

Those hits were absurd. I remember watching the second one live. I was thinking that Jeraun most certainly should have been ejected.

Im not trying to absolve Johnson

But it is definitely arguable as to whether or not he should have been ejected. Bigger Conference refs don't let as much fly as the Wac does either. When you play on National TV, the ref understands that he is under the microscope every time. In the Wac it is more like a snake pit. And that is what oregon will experience at bronco stadium. If they think this type of thing is bad, they are in for a store when they get really roughed up on the 3rd.

One Question

If the uniforms were reversed and Kellen Moore took a similar hit from Patrick Chung, would you still be of the same opinion? Same goes for the hit by JJ....if it was Efaw or another one of the BSU tight ends, would you still be defending that hit???

Yes, I would

The hit on Jeron Johnson was not ejection-worthy. Yes, the ball was overthrown (and badly), but the DB times his hits with the arrival of the ball. Since Johnson hit him just AFTER the arrival (regardless that the ball was so off target), that is not a penalty. If the pass was on target, Dickson would have gotten jacked immediately. Don't believe me? Watch the video (you may need to do the pause-step) and stop it just before and just after the ball arrives. The timing was perfect, just the ball was overthrown.

I will admit Powers' hit was late, very late. Should he have been flagged? Yes. Ejected? No. Late hits happen, and they should be flagged for it. But, that doesn't mean an automatic ejection.

However, I like how the Duck fans keep saying Boise State always plays dirty. That's a joke. This is the only game I ever watched where Boise State had that many late hits and pass interference calls. The following week, Jeron Johnson did get flagged for a hit out-of-bounds, but the replay shows it was a bad call. Yet, this one game is not indicative of how Boise State plays. Maybe emotions were heightened, I don't know. But, Oregon was charged up, too. That was evident from the late hit on the fumble.

Oregon Wasn't Charged Up..

The fact is Jeron Johnson was playing safety and saw the ball was waaaay overthrown. Look at the video. There was no way he didn't see the ball..yet he decided to target a defenseless player. That's a penalty and an easy ejection. All that was going through his mind was that he was going to blow up this receiver no matter what. Take a CHEAP SHOT.

And I've watched BSU play numerous times. Even before this season before I cared how dirty BSU plays and came up with the same conclusion. Same with Fresno State. The whole WAC plays dirty...but I still have more respect for FSU and any other team for that matter than the Donkey Smurfs.

Negative, ghostrider

the ball sailed over the head just as he plastered Dickson. And, a receiver going up for a pass is not considered defenseless. It was perfect timing on a badly thrown pass. Johnson couldnt help it that the Oregon QB sucked so bad.

Affirmative. NVM is right.

Darron Thomas threw that ball away where nobody could get it on PURPOSE. The ball was way over Dickson's head...you can see because he slows down and watches the ball sale over his head. Then as he turns to see the ball hit the ground, Johnson does another one of his thug plays.

He never went up for a pass...the ball was already over him, and Johnson saw it the whole way. All he wanted to do was lay someone out...didn't matter to him how dirty of a play it was or if Dickson could get hurt.

Ejection. Easily. Game set and match. We'll see how the Thug Smurf Donkeys do without the late hits this year.


That NVM post was for a repeated message, dummy! Apparently "" got removed


What's an NVM? Did we fight them in '68?

Come now, FO!

You know what it means. It's computer/text jargon for "nevermind". I had made a duplicate message and was trying to remedy it by saying NVM in the Subject box.

Actually, it means "Nantucket Valley Municipal", which is a Conservative Arts college is Northern South Carolina. It's located just north of Atlanta and south of New York City.
