Traveling thru the Denver airport right now.
Must confirm the declaration that the In N Out v. Five Guys debate is Sanchez.
Shake Shack completely changes the fast burger chain discussion. Knew it already. Reconfirmed just now. A fantastic slight char flavor on the burger patty, like grilling at home. Fresh ingredients. And, cheese sauce covered crinkle cut fries that are addictive.

I was watching Talkin Ducks on NBCSNW yesterday and Jordan Kent had Joey and Bellotti on.
Jordan asked them what they thought of the rumor about USC and started with Joey. Joey’s response was that: 1. first and foremost, having met with and talked to Mario in depth multiple times he is 100% certain Mario is very committed to UO and is as genuine as they come, and 2. the USC job ain’t what it used to be. Bellotti basically just agreed wholeheartedly on both points.
But, the conviction with the way Joey talked about how much Mario enjoys it here and takes his commitment to Oregon seriously was very, very reassuring. I don’t think we have anything to worry about.
Also, in that interview he didn’t just say "Go Ducks." He shut the whole topic down and made it clear he only wanted to talk about the Ducks. That wasn’t him avoiding the subject. That was him demonstrating his laser focus on his job at Oregon. That’s all he lives and breathes. The rest of the world is irrelevant. In other words, that’s his way of exemplifying "I am committed to staying at Oregon."
His alma mater and the school in the city where he’s from had a job opening. The U (not Utah, RavenousUte), had a coaching search and Mario had no part in it. If he didn’t want to leave Oregon for that, he sure has no reason to want to go to USC, against which he’s 2-0 and leading in the Pac-12. He’s built something here and just came off one of the most important regular season wins in school history mere DAYS ago. His mindset is nowhere near leaving right now. You’ve got nothing to worry about and I’d recommend not trying to read so much into it.
