Oregon Ducks O-lineman says ditch the 'We Want Bama' shirts

Oregon fans are selling shirts with three simple words: "We Want Bama."

Ducks offensive lineman Andre Yruretagoyena took to Twitter on Monday with his own statement for those fans, which can also be summed up in three words: Cool it, folks.

Considering recent history, it is advice UO, which is ranked third in the BCS standings, would be well served to keep in mind, as November home losses in each of the last two seasons scuttled BCS title game appearances.

Week 10: Things we learned


From Jadeveon Clowney coming up empty again vs. Mississippi State to Ohio State's unsung tight end, here are the lessons we learned from the college football weekend. **More ...**

Yruretagoyena, a redshirt sophomore reserve, and UO face No. 5 (in the BCS rankings) Stanford on Thursday, before closing out the regular season with games against Utah, at Arizona, and against Oregon State. Win all three, and there would still be a Pac-12 title game.

In fact, pass that memo along to Florida State, which started chanting "We Want Bama" during its thumping of Miami this past Saturday. Ditto for Ohio State and Baylor, each dealing with fears of finishing the season undefeated and being locked out of the trip to Pasadena, Calif.

Even Alabama has to deal with LSU, Auburn and a possible SEC title game.

Knowing the unpredictability of college football, put away the shirts and shelve the chants until Dec. 8. Otherwise, all you are doing is tempting the wrath of the whatever from high atop the thing, to say nothing of those BCS computers.
