EUGENE, Ore. Jaylen Brown Celtics Jersey . -- No. 23 Oregon is piling up points at a prolific pace.Tyler Dorsey scored a career-high 29 points, Dillon Brooks had 22 and the Ducks set a school scoring record in a 128-59 victory over Savannah State on Saturday night.Coming off a 93-54 win against Western Oregon on Wednesday night, the Ducks (7-2) eclipsed their previous high of 121 points against Portland in 1970 and had seven players score in double figures for the first time in nine seasons. It was their fifth consecutive win and 30th straight at home, adding to another school record.The teams tried a combined 85 3-pointers. Oregon won that battle, too, hitting 12 of 35.Three or four of our guys were talking to their coach about transferring, Oregon coach Dana Altman said, because anybody who takes 50 3s, our guys love that.Freshman Payton Pritchard, who had 13 of Oregons 36 assists, broke the scoring mark with a 3-pointer with 2:45 left.Dorsey went 12 of 16 from the field, and the Ducks shot a season-high 60 percent (54 for 90) overall. They dominated the smaller Tigers (2-8) inside by an 82-10 margin in points in the paint and 67-29 in rebounds.Oregons Kavell Bigby-Williams had 11 points and 11 rebounds for his first double-double.Despite the easy win, Altman called the Ducks a work in progress, largely without Brooks in the starting lineup.Were not using our athleticism to get in passing lanes and weve just got to do a better job, Altman said.Brooks, a preseason All-American playing his sixth game since recovering from offseason foot surgery, said hes about ready to assume more than the sixth-man role.Im almost there, he said. Im trying to get back in shape a little more. I feel good and my teammates keep pushing me.Savannah State, which came in averaging 40 3-point attempts per game, went 11 for 50 from beyond the arc in its fourth straight loss.Dexter McClanahan led the Tigers with 13 points and Troyce Manassa had 10.BIG PICTURESavannah State: The nations leading long-distance shooters also may be tops in frequent-flier miles after the Tigers make their third West Coast one-game road trip in two weeks to play Oregon State. They opened the season at Iowa State and Iowa and also played at San Diego State.Oregon: Brooks looks ready to rejoin the starting lineup, just as the Ducks schedule turns tougher with Alabama, Montana, UNLV and Fresno State on tap before Pac-12 play. Brooks was 8 for 12 from the field and 5 for 5 at the free-throw line.UP NEXTSavannah State visits Oregon State on Dec. 11. The Tigers play only three of their first 13 games at home before starting Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play on Jan. 4.Oregon heads into finals week with eight days to prepare for Alabamas visit on Dec. 11, the fourth of nine straight in-state games for the Ducks this month.POLL IMPLICATIONSOregons stock should start to rise again with three home wins in six days after the Ducks tumbled 19 spots from their all-time high ranking of No. 4 in the first week of the season.HIGHLIGHT REELPritchards fifth assist in the first 10 minutes was a 40-foot lob in transition to a streaking Chris Boucher for a two-handed dunk that capped a 21-3 run for the Ducks.HIGHLIGHT REEL IIIn the second half, Oregons Jordan Bell took the time to set up his own breakaway dunk by bouncing the ball off the backboard before throwing it down with both hands. I thought he was going to windmill, Brooks said. Off the glass is crazy.Altman wasnt quite as amused by Bells theatrics as his teammates were. Hes lucky it went in, Altman said. We will talk about that, but since it was his only two points, I guess he felt like he had to have that one. Greg Monroe Celtics Jersey .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. Boston Celtics Jerseys . To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. http://www.authenticcelticsteamproshop.com/Cheap-Terry-Rozier-Celtics-Jersey/ . Its an influence in football and a big part of the game. On a sweltering July afternoon in DeSoto, a sleepy suburb just outside of Dallas, the chicken farmer sweats through his Texas A&M T-shirt as he tends to two dozen of his feathered friends in the backyard of his parents home.Chickens, says Denver Broncos pass-rusher Von Miller, are dope.Despite the oppressive 100-degree heat here in Texas and increasingly heated contract negotiations with his team back in Denver, Miller, 27, is beaming like a proud papa. This chicken coop, which is no bigger than a tennis court, is the four-time Pro Bowlers happy place, his refuge from the spotlight that tends to follow a Super Bowl MVP with charisma to burn. Theres Miller on Dancing With the Stars and the Academy of Country Music Awards. Theres Miller, nude save for his ubiquitous eyewear and fur hat, in ESPN The Magazines Body Issue. Theres Miller at the White House, where the champs were feted by President Obama -- and this champ, at least, botched the greeting.I thought I just would, like, get a handshake, but he kind of held my hand, and he talked about how cool he thought my shoes are and my dance moves, Miller explains. I was just in awe, thinking this is so surreal. Then he let go of my hand, and Im looking at my hand -- and I just tripped on the presidential rug.Its the story of my life, man, he adds with a chuckle.Its a funny anecdote, anyway, in a story about a self-described geek with a dream, one that was born in College Station, Texas, and, if the Aggie has his way, could soon be fully realized with a moneymaking poultry operation. Miller is in talks to potentially acquire a commercial chicken farm not far from his childhood home, but make no mistake, its passion, not profit, that powers Millers poultry game.Here, presumably, is ESPNs first Q&A with a chicken farmer. And check out the SportsCenter feature above for more.-----------ALIPOUR: How did you get into the poultry game?MILLER: Im not even gonna lie, man, it started off by taking an easy class in college. [Laughs.] My professor, Dr. [Morgan] Farnell, he wouldnt let it be an easy class -- you know how these electives can be, you just go in there and sleep through it. But he made it a point to make sure I knew my information. And then I learned about it and really enjoyed it. Before you know it, its my major.How passionate are you about this?Im very passionate, especially when it comes to humanely raised chickens. I take pride in healthy birds. You got all these other big-time commercial farms that raise, you know, 30,000 birds. Me, its a whole lot smaller operation, but its a lot of bang for the buck.When did you acquire your first flock?I started building this chicken farm my sophomore year in college. As I got a little bit more money, it just got bigger and bigger. I got my first flock like five years ago. And then this current flock right here, itll be three years in November. Its like family. Theyre more like pets. We got a lot of natural predators out here, so we got to watch them as well. Hawks took a couple of birds from us, and there are snakes and coyotes. But other than that, they really dont have to worry about much here at Miller Farms.Wait, lets back up. Where are the snakes at?We got a little creek.Were not visiting the creek.No.So, lets say Im a chicken. What kind of life can I expect on Von Millers farm?You can expect a long life, a lot of space, great food and youll get along with your teammates. All our chickens, they get along pretty well. Its just a great environment, like a great organization that you want to play for. For example, they get to go out in the pasture in the afternoon and the morning. Gordon Hayward Celtics Jersey. I like to bring them out to natural, solid grass, their natural setting in which theyre picking up worms rather than the litter and the dirt we have in the coop. Thats what its all about for me. Its not about the commercial aspect of it. Of course, theres money involved, and being able to make a buck off of this is what makes everything go, but thats not at the foundation at Miller Farms. Its about happy, humanely raised chickens.Should I expect my owner to eat me?Im not out here to eat the birds. Now, the eggs, thats a different story. Oh, yeah, I eat eggs all day [laughs]. I think you can taste the difference between a pasteurized egg and a commercial egg.How many eggs do they produce?Weve got 10 [chickens] laying eggs, so about 20 eggs a day. We take them in the house, wash them off, put them in storage. My mom [Gloria], she has a whole system. Shes really the mastermind behind the eggs. So its really like a family operation for me and my little brother [Vince], my mom and my dad [Von]. It was something that I brought home and they just ran with it.Are the birds cool with you taking their eggs and eating them?Oh, yeah, theyre cool. I dont even think they know whats going on.Do the birds have personalities?Yeah, they definitely have personalities, especially the rooster. The rooster is the man. Hes the leader of the pack. Hes watching out for everybody. I call him Peyton. We had five of them originally -- he was the toughest one out of the whole flock. Its only one of him, so hes just chillin around. You know, if its you with 30 females, youll be pretty chill, too. But they all got personalities. I thought about creating a little TV show for the birds. You know, you have a celebrity do voice-over for the chickens, like, Mine, mine, mine, get away! [Laughs.] But if you just sit and watch them, they all work as a team. They find food. One will alert the other one to come over here. Its pretty dope.So when did it become an insult to call somebody a chicken?I think when we were little kids, you know? Oh, youre a chicken. Youre afraid. When you think about chickens, you think about them being cowards and, you know, running away. Thats what it looks like. But when you actually look at them, especially the rooster, hes one of the toughest guys in the animal kingdom.So, what happens if I call you a chicken?[Laughs.] Im going to be OK with it.Hey, Von. Youre a chicken.I mean, I understand it. Im a chicken. Chickens are dope.Rocky trained by chasing chickens. Is that Hollywood fiction?No, its not Hollywood fiction. I tried it. But, you know, Id rather chase quarterbacks. Chickens are way more athletic than the most athletic quarterback you could probably go get.What do your teammates think about all this?When they first started hearing about me raising chickens, they thought it was a joke, another one of Vons tricks. But once you really get to know me and where Im from, then you get it. And when you come see my farm and the way I raise my chickens, you get to know me a lot better as well.I know youre in talks to acquire a commercial chicken farm. Whats the next step in your poultry empire.I want to create a different lane. Youve got all these big companies that do it other ways. I want to create a lane where there can be happy, healthy birds -- and thatll be my whole slogan. Youll see the bird with a smile, saying, Hey, Im living with Von Miller and were living great, man!
