Oregon Football 2006....

2006 Las Vegas BowlThIs season did not turn out the way we had hoped. Still, there were some memorable moments. Most especially? The Oklahoma game in Autzen.......


BUT...this season would continue to add to the foundation, building to what would be a fun ride in 2007.  A "Run For The Roses" and a possible birth in the MNC (Mythical National Championship).  DD( Dennis Dixon ) would become a leading candidate for the Heisman that year - until a broken leg derailed that .... along with the season.

But - as always - what a ride................!

Once we got that onside kick, that last drive was something that we needed, and I was like `we're going to score, we're going to accomplish this and it worked out.

             The Lyrics...


We're in the Northwest corner
Barrel pointed so straight.
We're lurkin' here in Autzen
And we own the state

Those big, fat, ugly Beavers
Jumpin' in the grass...
Just WAIT 'till they see our ol'
Shotgun blast!

OREGON boogie (Shotgun boogie)
We like OUR Quarterbacks
Look out little rodents
When Dixon locks his hammer back!

The Stanford Cardinal's comin'
On September two
Then we're off to Fresno -
Victory #2

Oklahoma thinks it's on
a champion's track
But Brady Leaf says it's time
For his PAY-BACK!

OREGON boogie (shotgun boogie)
All it takes is ONE shot!
Look out Boomer Sooner!
Tonight you'll be in our pot!

Headin' south to get
Another notch on his gun,
Sun Devil, Bear, and Bruin -
Got 'em on the run!

Dixon's lookin' 'round the field
And what does he see?
The BEST damn uni's anywhere
in this here country!

OREGON boogie (shotgun boogie)
We are lookin' good, too!
Well, here come the fuskies! Now
We're drawin' a bead on you!

We're off to beat the Trojans
Take a victory lap, says Tommy:
(Wait a minute, son, you gotta see my PAP!)
Well bring on Pappa Trojan, momma, cousins, too;
Ain't NO one stoppin' Stewart runnin' over you!

OREGON boogie (shotgun boogie)
Tommy Trojan's done!
The O-line opens holes
And we are havin' TONS-0-FUN!

Gary Crowton had a plan
Belotti said, "Listen, G!"
"We got the weapons here and
you're in fast company!"

Let Dixon lock back his hammer,
Right here on the spot and then
His gun will go off or
He'll out RUN the lot!

OREGON boogie (shotgun boogie)
We got the Victory Bell!
We'll be BACK everybody and
We'll never run outta shells

 - Oh, yes we will! -

We'll be BACK everybody and





              Special Thanks To The Holiday Band...

I  would personally like to thank "The Holiday Band" out of Burlington, NC. for allowing me to use the instrumental from their track "Shotgun Boogie" for this celebration. They are very gracious as well as  being a fun party band steeped in the Beach Music tradition of the Carolinas!. I HIGHLY recommend them if you are into "red hot blues".....
