I gave it a shot. I guess I will find out how I did later when he posts the answers.

I would like to present a little quiz of my own. This one, however, is team-specific. My team that I support. The Oregon Ducks.

Hopefully fans from other places around the country, and not just Oregon and Pac 10 fans, will give the quiz a try.
