Oregon Football 2005....

This one was inspired by the tune "Down At The Place To Be"; a red hot blues tune .... Created at the beginning of and for the 2005 season.  It fits since Autzen has become widely recognized as "pound-for-pound" one of the loudest, hostile stadiums in the country.

The Holiday Bowl loss this year highlighted the fact we still had a ways to go to reach the mountaintop.  The Oklahoma game in 2006 at Autzen showed we were getting closer....A controversial onside kick captured the fancy of sports nation....a last second block of an Oklahoma field goal attempt saved the victory.        .......and STILL....

The view was - and is - definitely worth the climb.

Nice. Go Ducks.

             The Lyrics...

The season's just about here....
We gonna play some ball 
and have some fun!…everybody’s
getting together right now….
let me tell y’all about it!

There's gonna be a party
There's gonna be a ball
We're gonna have a good time
We're gonna win it all

Now the action starts in September
Tell everybody you see
There's a party going on this year
Autzen’s the Place to Be

You’ll be havin’, havin’ a good time
The Trojans are next you’ll see
Then the party REALLY gets goin’
The fuskies go down with ease

Autzen's the place to be.
Gang Green is back, you'll see!
Ngata, Chung, Long, Phinisee!
Undefeated, again, we'll be.

Third down. We're making sound!
Autzen's the place to be.

-- music interlude  --

You can't ask for a better setting,
And you don't want to miss the fun.

The Green Monster.s been unleashed.
Everybody knows Autzen's the one.

You gonna see KC, the cowboy
Throwin’ to Day and James Finley
Everybody’s gonna be there
Autzen’s the Place to Be.

Autzen’s the Place to Be,
The Cal Bears go down by three
Y’all come come and you’ll see
The Beavos and our next victory
Third down. We’re makin’ sound
Autzen’s the Place to Be

Hey Don Essig! It never rains
In Autzen, you know….
Wow! The cheerleaders just came in…
Got them outfits on,
oh yeah!...the band is cookin’ too!...

Hey Nick! Another team’s in town!
You set 'em up and we’ll shout 'em down
I’m at the Place to Be
60,000 strong we’ll be

They’re playin’ ball, 
Shotgun and all
Autzen’s the Place to Be.

Autzen’s the Place to Be,
We gonna have a good time
Especially on 3rd down
Autzen’s the Place to Be
It was fun, we’re #1

The Rose Bowl is next – you’ll see……..
