John M. Bloss, president of Oregon State when the rivalry began (1894), was a former sergeant in the Union Army during the Civil War.
Decision to release grand jury findings at night, with building fervor, was absurd.
Ay pops, you popped my duck

People are angry. They have every right to be. But nobody ever looted and burned a city into change.

The fact that there were different stories means that there was a question of fact
8 straight, good work fellas ... Line em up ! Close out this road trip strong
Blazers win it 114-104 to push the winning streak to 8 games. Aldridge with a season-high 33 points.
I'll give this to the 76ers. They play hard and they play hard until the final horn.
Matthews 3 to push the lead to 12 and that might be the dagger. 2:40 left in the game.
Did Nerlens Noel flop when he was hit by his own teammates' swinging arms? Sure looked like it.
Sixers cut the lead to 7 with just about 4 minutes left.
Damian Lillard with a mini-flop to draw a foul on the perimeter. I've been calling for him to add flopping to his arsenal.
KJ McDaniels' athleticism is ridiculous.
LaMarcus Aldridge 15 points and 4 rebounds in a perfect shooting third quarter. 5-5 FGs, 4-4 FTs http://t.co/B0AB0Wdqp9
Blazers up 9 after three. Starting to look the part.
Another double-double for LA: 27 pts, 10 rbs, in final secs of 3rd Q.
Aldridge is 8-for-15 from three on the year. He should shoot more of them....?
Nerlens Noel just had a real life "don't reach young blood" moment trying to guard LaMarcus Aldridge.
I don't think I've ever seen an NBA player more open -- for so long -- than Lillard was on that last 3.
I thought Lillard might have waited too long on that three. Solid 5 seconds and two re-grips didn't throw him off.
Blazers trail the Sixers 52-50. Both teams shooting identical percentages. But Portland has 14 turnovers and Philly has 7.
Man ... that Rolo fall looked scary as the play happened live. Somehow he popped right up, though.
Looked like Noel got arm after he made the block. Great effort.
Tony Wroten has missed a couple lay ups, but they've been very fun missed layups.
Coming into tonight Joel Freeland had made five shots outside of the paint through 13 games. He has 3 already against the Sixers.
Guess I just jinxed Freeland into a miss there, didn't I?
Joel Freeland has so few shot attempts, his season shooting percentage has gone from 38.1 to 48% by going 4 for 4 tonight.
After another midrange J, Freeland is up to 9 pts -- 4 shy of his career high.
Freeland did talk about trying to bring is offensive game along in the offseason. Showing a bit here. 9 points, 2 boards.
Joel Freeland is burning down the nets.
Joel Freeland continuing his strong play on trip. In 6 mins, he has 7 pts, 1 rb, is 3-3 from field. He has 2 midrange Js + and-one layup.
Joel Freeland has it all working. Two short jumpers, the and-1 and a technical foul.
Joel Freeland with a touch foul and-1 after he gets a tech...worth it.
Joel Freeland awarded a rare technical foul for complaining about the foul called on him. He has beef.
Blazers had 16 turnovers (leading to 16 points) against Boston last night. Already with 11 against Philly, but Sixers only have 4pts off TOs
Oh no, someone's going to come up with a Will Barton's Missing Headband Twitter account.
The Karma Gods go full-circle on Blake with that highlight-reel block.
Will Barton, who didn't play last night vs. Boston, providing a nice boost of bench tonight. He has 5 pts, 1 rb, is 2-2 from field, in 5 min
Blazers up 24-20 after 1. 8 TOs, 1/5 from 3. Aldridge has 8 points.
Drew Gordon just standing out of bounds for spacing.
Kaman's lefty passes are sneakily effective.
Blazers on pace for a cool 48 turnovers. Philly up 8-4 early.
Blazers gotta burn the tapes of these last two first quarters.
MCW now 0-for-3 at the rim.
Michael Carter-Williams 0-for-2 at the rim.
Blazers get a lay up. Sixers just throw the ball out of bounds. What a start.
