  1. Oregon's approach is to make Oregon a desirable destination by offering the best facilities, not just in sports, for student athletes. This is the most honorable way to attract the best. No bribes, no pay-for-play, just a great environment. I share the sentiment of wanting that to stay the same.
  2. Phil & Penny have gifted over a billion dollars to the U of O. This was posted in March of 2021, before their second gift of $500 million was announced later in the year. https://www.oregonlive.com/news/2021/03/knights-university-of-oregon-donations-push-1-billion-mark-with-new-hayward-field-project.html And then.... https://www.oregonlive.com/education/2021/07/penny-and-phil-knight-donate-500-million-to-university-of-oregon-research-campus.html
  3. Who knows what's going on in the RB room. I'll just wait till September to see who's there.
  4. The dropped passes didn't help out JH either.
  5. Funny how, according to their list, Oregon's game with Georgia next season is called a "home" game on Georgia's schedule, yet called "neutral" on Oregon's. Neutral .... sure.
  6. So many question marks. Hopefully DL keeps his staff in line, across the board. I also hope he has a special eye for talent, as there are some unknowns with these guys. It could be something special, ... or it could be a train wreck. I'm looking forward to the off season articles that will undoubtedly uncover the mysteries of this new staff, or instill confidence in the knowns. Here's to another fresh start for OBD. GO DUCKS!
  7. I'm a man of few words, mostly. But I try to make 'em count! Merry Christmas all! And Go Ducks!
  8. Someone made a comment the other day about how Cristobal and Taggart have more in common than first perceived. I understand that it is just a business and just a job, but does Cristobal not have any respect, let alone loyalty, to the program he supposedly loved? Yes again it's just a job, but it seems like poor tactics to try to go after the players you recruited so hard to come to Oregon and then change their minds and say oh I meant Miami... I know it's not that simple but it seems like it is. I guess what I mean is it seems disingenuous to say to a recruit Oregon is the school that you should be at, and then turn around and try to pull them to a different school just because it's where you are. This tells me that Cristobal was recruiting players to him, not Oregon.
  9. Yes, I am counting my blessings. It could be too soon though to say that we dodged a bullet, yet again maybe it isn't - you never know. What we do know is the same BYU team that just obliterated the pac-12 south this year, lost to a team who has many people scratching their heads asking "who is UAB"? I understand that it's just an exhibition game, but BYU should have used it to be a statement game, especially after a fairly strong season. Now, Oregon fans, knowing that we play BYU next year, are left with wondering what team is going to show up, when we do eventually play them. We won't have any kind of an idea of what this team Oregon is going to be until we see the spring game, and read the spring practice reports, but we will know that we are going to be presented with a BYU team that is going to put up a fight. Losing this bowl game is only going to serve as motivation for the BYU players for next fall. Seems like besides Georgia, Oregon fans have another fall OOC game to look forward to. And given the trajectory of the BYU program, bowl game aside, it could possibly have playoff implications. All of this is assuming that Oregon pulls together and manages to pull off a very good season next year. It's possible, but is it probable? That is the question.
  10. Does this BYU loss in their bowl game exemplify how the pac-12 is way way behind or is it simply BYU had a bad game?
  11. I wasn't able to listen, but had the subtitles on (but the seemed terrible), but I thought I read that he said he left early because he got a sprained ankle, and then chose to quit due to the fact that he wanted to be at full health when he entered the portal. Can anyone confirm? Otherwise, I will have to replay the video later, which isn't a terrible bother.
  12. Per ESPN, Ken Wilson has been hired as the next coach for the Wolfpack.
  13. Is there anything out there that's reporting which assistants are sticking with the program, other than McClendon?
  14. I agree 100%. Mario has an average of three losses a year roughly, which isn't championship material. I understand that every year is different, but as you said, the product that he is putting on the field isn't getting it done. Something has to change, and although I like Mario, I think wholeheartedly that if this is the pinnacle of his product, then we need to start shopping around for an improvement. It's either that, or he needs to come to terms with his limitations and find help to bring to his program to elevate it. He needs to bring the right guy, not just any person who fits the mold.
  15. National Power Programs do not fall flat on their faces when it matters most. Oregon already had national exposure and prominence before Mario ever set foot here. He knew when he accepted the job that the goal was national championships. So far he's given us mediocrity in a mediocre conference. Georgia, Alabama, Michigan, etc would have steamrolled the pac-12 this year and in many years. That's what Oregon should have done. That's what Mario should have done. The job he was hired to do.
  16. Yep looks like Alabama is going to win themselves yet another championship. Yay.
  17. 76 - 17 over 2 games to the best defense in the Pac12... Only reason I can think that MC stayed with Brown is to preserve TT's redshirt, for some reason. Did MC think that the same game plan would beat Utah? Smh... A new approach using a different style QB may have yielded better results. Maybe not a win, but a better than 7.7 qbr performance? Perhaps. Mario Cristobal is a hard-headed man, who appears to not enjoy offense. It's pretty obvious that his game plan is only out to emphasize offensive line play which is funny because they suck. You're going to safely assume that his plan has backfired. *This entire statement is my opinion only. Not to be taken too seriously.
  18. Warren Ruggiero - Wake Forest OC Zach Kittley - Western Kentucky OC Mark Whipple - Pitt OC All 3 have top 5 scoring offenses this year.
  19. Reports are surfacing saying Moorhead is going to be the next HC at Akron. Looks like the offense will possibly take a step back next year. MC will hopefully make a great hire, someone who can bring more "juice" than JM did. Let's pray he doesn't promote from within (i.e. Mastro), because we need innovation, energy, and firepower on offense. The game with Georgia next fall is gonna be tough to watch. In the meantime, Go Ducks! Beat Utah!!!
  20. I don't think Mario would do too well in Miami. Not the recruiting, but because of the fact that he doesn't seem to know how to keep his team together. Miami is a place where, let's just say, people can get into trouble. Just my opinion.
  21. Yeah I know, but that's misleading. It's still 420 miles for Utah, vs 860 miles for the Ducks. But like I said Oregon represents pretty well so I feel like there's going to be plenty of fans there. The real questions are the ones that happen on the field, not in the stands. And like Haywarduck says, flying there, it's pretty much the same. So my point is pretty much moot.
