PASADENA, Calif. - Touchdown. Turnover. Touchdown. Turnover. Touchdown.And on it went for Oregon.Marcus Mariota and the Ducks are built for speed and in a flash they turned the first College Football Playoff semifinal game into a Rose Bowl rout.The Ducks dusted Florida State 59-20 on Thursday and now its on to Texas to try to win their first national championship.Its incredible. Im so proud of these guys right here, Mariota said. Weve got one more to take care of.Pac-12 champion Oregon (13-1) will play Ohio State in the title game Jan. 12 in Arlington, Texas. Ohio State beat Alabama 42-35 in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night.The second-seeded Ducks scored six straight times they touched the ball in the second half, with five of the touchdowns covering at least 21 yards and the last four coming after Florida State turnovers.In a span of 12:54 on the game clock, the score went from 25-20 to 59-20.A lot of fun, said Oregon coach Mark Helfrich of the Ducks run, but at the same time these guys were able to retain a tremendous focus.In the matchup of Heisman Trophy winners, Jameis Winston matched Mariotas numbers, but the Seminoles (13-1) were no match for the Ducks.Third-seeded Florida States winning streak ended at 29. In Winstons first loss as a college starter, maybe his last game in college, he threw for 348 yards and turned the ball over twice.I think what he did as a competitor and what he does with his teammates, hes one of the great players in not only college football, but college football history to me, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. It was a tough day out there.Mariota was mostly brilliant again. Directing the Ducks warp-speed, hurry-up offence, the junior passed for 338 yards and two touchdowns. When he sprinted for a 23-yard touchdown with 13:56 left in the fourth quarter it made the score 52-20 and it made the Ducks the first team to reach 50 points in Rose Bowl history. This was game No. 101.The longer you go, the stronger you get, said Ducks safety Erick Dargan, who forced a fumble and intercepted a pass. We went longer and we stayed stronger. Everyone kept demanding more out of each other.The Ducks fans spent much of the final quarter mockingly doing the Seminoles warchant and tomahawk chop. After it was over the players sported T-shirts that read WON NOT DONE.The first playoff game at college footballs highest level, the type of post-season game fans have longed for forever, looked like it would be a classic for about two and a half quarters.Under a cloudless sky, on a chilly day in Pasadena, the Rose Bowl featured the third matchup of Heisman Trophy winners and a couple of quarterbacks who could be vying to be the first overall pick in Aprils NFL draft.On the same field where Florida State erased an 18-point deficit against Auburn to win the national title last year, the Seminoles trailed at half for the sixth time this season.And then the hole got deeper.Seminoles freshman Dalvin Cook was stripped by Derrick Malone Jr. with Florida State in Oregon territory. The Ducks quickly flipped the field and Royce Freeman scored his second touchdown of the day from 3 yards out to make it 25-13.Helfrich had called the Seminoles unflappable during the week leading up to the Rose Bowl — and they showed it on the next drive.Winston threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to freshman Travis Rudolph to make it 25-20 Oregon with 8:07 left in the third.Then the Ducks took off.Mariota zipped a pass to Darren Carrington for a 56-yard touchdown pass.Then another fumble by Cook, and the wave of big plays and points the Ducks do better than any team in the country started rumbling.Mariota hit Carrington for a 30-yard touchdown and the Rose Bowl, filled mostly with green and yellow, was rumbling, too.With the sun just about set behind the San Gabriel mountains, the Ducks put the Noles away.On fourth-and-5 in Oregon territory, Winston had lots of time but couldnt find a receiver. He was flushed from the pocket and as he loaded to throw his foot slipped and the ball popped out of his hands.It kind of looked like he slipped on a banana, like in cartoons, Oregon linebacker Torrodney Prevot said.The fumble bounced into Tony Washingtons arms and the defensive end went 58 yards for a score.It was just a crazy play, Winston said.The wave had washed over Florida State.Florida State had not lost since Nov. 24, 2012, to Florida. Winston had never lost a college start in 26 tries.Turnovers were a problem all year for Seminoles, who came into the game 84th in the nation in turnover margin (minus-3), and in the playoff it was ultimately what doomed them.We beat ourselves, Winston said. We were never stopped at all.Winston, whose two years at Florida State have been filled with spectacular play on the field and controversy off, still has two years of eligibility left, but he has nothing left to prove.Mariota and the Ducks are moving on, with a chance to add the biggest prize of all — the only significant one missing — to their trophy case.___Follow Ralph D.

Each and every July 1st signing has brought with it excitement and all too large expectations only to fizzle into one pricey disappointment after another. Now helming another rebuild in Calgary, Burke often described the day in disastrous terms for the NHLs management community, decrying the slew of exorbitant contracts with "unrealistic values and unrealistic term…that bite you right in the butt at some point". Value, all too important under the confines of a cap system and best found in homegrown products, is never harder to find than on July 1st – a day that sees the contracts get larger and sillier with each passing year. It began in earnest for the Leafs shortly after the outset of the cap era in the summer of 2006. John Ferguson Jr., fighting for a job that would soon run its course, plugged two holes on the Toronto defence that July with a pair of expensive free agent additions. Formerly a member of Tampas Cup winning squad in 2004, Pavel Kubina was inked for four years and $20 million and Hal Gill, once a towering defender in Boston but far less effective under the free-flowing rules of the league post-lockout, raked in more than $6 million for three years. Both were overpaid from the outset – especially in the case of Kubina, one of many to struggle under the weight of an onerous contract – and both were eventually traded. 2007 Jason Blake came next. Scoring more frequently as an Islander in 2006 than at any other point in a 13-year career, Blake – age 33 – signed with the Leafs for five years and $20 million in the last significant move of the Ferguson Jr. era. Blake, predictably, could not live up to the expectations of such a large contract, never coming close to 40 goals again; he was dealt to Anaheim alongside Vesa Toskala for J.S. Giguere in 2010. 2008 Mostly forgotten now, but of considerable damage to the organization during a brief 10-month tenure, Fletcher continued the free agent plight in 2008. Maybe even more stunning now than it was then, Fletcher handed former Avalanche defender Jeff Finger, he of 94 games of NHL experience, four years and $14 million. Finger played 62 forgettable games in a Leaf uniform, was eventually buried in the minors, never to be heard from again. Joining Finger in the free agent trot that day was Niklas Hagman, a Finnish winger who scored 27 goals the year prior in Dallas. Hagman also cashed in under Fletcher, lured for four years at a bloated $12 million. Though he scored 42 goals in two seasons with the Leafs, Hagman was consistently inconsistent, soon to be dealt to Calgary in the famed Dion Phaneuf trade. 2009 Still months from pulling the trigger on the noisiest (and most controversial) move of his busy Toronto tenure – the hotly debated Phil Kessel trade – Burke sought a big and ultimately failed splash in his first summer as the Leafs front man. It was all about truculence then and truculence he got. There were the four years and $4 million pitched to former Rangers heavyweight, Colton Orr; five long years and $22.5 million to Mike Komisarek; three years at just over $11 million for Francois Beauchemin. Orr lingereed as a mostly unused tough guy for Ron Wilson before being briefly banished to the minors (he eventually returned to the NHL).dddddddddddd. Komisarek, a step or two slow for the speedier new game, tumbled quickly under the burden of a deal he could never live up to and was bought out by the organization last summer. Beauchemin eventually found his game, but not in Toronto. He returned to the Ducks in the Jake Gardiner-Joffrey Lupul swap, finishing fourth in the 2013 Norris Trophy voting. 2010 Still trying to fill various holes through free agency, Burke added the veteran grinder Colby Armstrong from Pittsburgh the following summer (three years, $9 million). Armstrong never found much health as a Leaf though and preceded fellow free agent signee, Komisarek, on the buyout line. 2011 Tim Connolly recorded just 42 points in his final go-around in Buffalo, but still landed $9 million for two years in the summer of 2011. Connolly never hit the desired mark of No. 1 centre for the Leafs (he had 36 points in 70 games), was demoted to the Marlies after a year and is now out of the NHL. 2013 And then last summer there was David Clarkson, the first signee of Nonis as Leafs GM. In perhaps the worst deal of the aforementioned bunch, Clarkson landed in his hometown for seven years and more than $36 million on July 1st, 2013. Year 1 was an all-out nightmare and while theres every chance of a bounce-back of some kind in Year 2, his talents are unlikely to ever match the value of an incredibly burdensome contract. Clarkson was just the latest in a line of July 1st blunders. The fundamental flaw in continually swinging big in free agency is the lacking value the process ensures – players are almost always overvalued on Day 1 of the contract. As demonstrated yet again by the L.A. Kings earlier this summer, team building (and sustained success) is best accomplished through successful draft and development, not pricey spending on a mistake-laden day. And so while impending UFAs like Paul Statsny may appear to solve long-standing needs, Nonis (and Brendan Shanahan) would be wise to approach with caution. The answer, especially in Toronto, is almost never found on July 1st.
