08:20 AM ET 11.08 | Cal's mission this week would seem a tall task. Notoriously slow-starting this season, the Cal football team cannot afford to be sluggish out of the gate Saturday night against No. 2 Oregon. ... This Oregon team averages 54.3 points per game, and even that's a bit misleading, because in all but a few games the Ducks have been so far ahead they've backed off in the second half. They have converted red-zone chances for touchdowns an NCAA-best 83.6 percent of the time, including on seven of eight tries at USC. They haven't scored fewer than 42 points in any game. "People may not think we have a chance," Cal linebacker Chris McCain said. "I don't see us giving up 42 points."

I think the Ducks will take that dare. Maybe he should have double dog dared them.

O-6, in my 23 yrs in the Navy, lost to many people directly or indirectly because of it. When I say lost I'm talking lives, so it's something I take personal.

Nice.

Guessing nobody ever explained to the LB the human nature aspect of making challenging remarks towards your next opponent. Either that or he's trying to impress his girlfriend.

Probably correct, he read the schedule wrong, and thought their next opponent was South Northwestern Oregon Polytech for the Little Sisters of the Blind, Crippled, Deaf and Malnourished.

I don't see them giving up 42 either. 72 seems more likely

This is just bad journalism...the young man's quote was taken out of context and not published in its entirety. What he said was "I don't see us giving up 42 points before the end of the first quarter."...
