First a knee injury to Kellen Clemens kills Oregon's chances to beat USC and win the Pac-10. Then Dennis Dixon's knee kills their MNC hopes. Now future star Nate Costa tears his ACL again and will miss his second straight full season of action. His future is dangling in the wind, just like his leg.
