07:20 AM ET 09.16 | Undefeated though he may be on the scoreboard, and by a wide margin, Mark Helfrich has a setback with which to contend in the form of star tight end Colt Lyerla. Helfrich told the media after the game that Lyerla was not at Autzen Stadium because of "circumstances." When asked if Lyerla was healthy, Helfrich again said "circumstances." When asked to be more specific, Helfrich smiled and continued the cat-and-mouse game. ... As many in the media are wont to do, they guffawed at the coach's attempt to be cute. But Lyerla was at his Eugene home with an entirely different reaction. "I'm really upset with the way coach Helfrich said that after the game," Lyerla said Sunday. "Really disappointed. I feel hurt about this. I watched a little bit of what he said, then started reading all of it, and ... it was unfair."

Sounds to me like someone needs to put on his big girl panties and run some dirt on her boo boo.

It is better to spit then rub some dirt in it.

I'm upset with Helfrich. Alert the media.

Congrats to a big weekend for the 12-Pack. After many conferences sheet-the-bed this weekend, 12-Pack looked good with only one loss (Cal), and wins over Tennessee, Nebraska, Illinois, and Wisconson. Impressive non-conference wins.

Maybe he got a personal day like our receiver did (who came back and scored a big time TD for us, woohoo).

Why is this kid talking to the media if he is not playing? Certainly Oregon did not make this kid available to the media.

He did have 3 or 4 drops last week, while J Mundt true freshman had 5 catches for 120 yds and 2 TD's this week.

..And jason Quick the Oregonians new "beat" writer is a drama queen to say the least.

Wonder where the Michigan fans are today? Good thing you guys have a better QB than Johnny Football.

I'm sure you would have ended Akron's 18-game road losing streak if JF would have been under center.

I guess the message from Helfrich is "don't get sick."

I heard that Hoke awarded a game ball to the Back Judge. ;-)
