  1. Hard to believe that the best offense in the land has failed to score on  a 1-7 Northwestern. Definitely starting slow. I'm sure they will win by 30+. 


    Oregon State's loss was disappointing, but that's gonna make next week's game all the better. Washington should now be ranked near where OSU was, which only strengthens our schedule. 


    Another surprise game has been Tech vs TCU. I thought Sonny Dykes would have had his team up big by now. I haven't followed Texas Tech this year at all, so I don't know how good their defense is. Could just be one of those Saturdays. 


    Georgia / Tenn & Bama / LSU should be some telling games for the SEC. Pretty good matchups there. 


    I'm curious to see how K State does against Texas. 


    Does Notre Dame have a shot to beat Clemson? I believe so.

  2. Oregon completely surprises everyone and beats the Dawgs handily - 59 - 14!



    And when I woke up, I was once again disappointed in another false hope dream. 


    Oregon loses again 62 - 21 ( 14 of the 21 coming in garbage time)


    Let's face it, folks ... Oregon isn't on that level. May never be. Georgia is a team that knows how to show up for big games, and win championships. 


    Georgia will hear all the pundits praising Oregon, Nix, and Lanning/Dilly, and will make a point to thrash us worse than before. Oregon isn't the only team that can improve. Georgia would be ready, and motivated to put that little team from the west in their place. 


    Sad, but true.



    Unless..... I'm wrong. Which happens frequently. 😄


  3. I think we could all agree that Oregon could use a bruiser back to complement Bucky & Noah. I don't mean a "short yardage" back like James. 


    I mean a guy like Zach Charbonnet, who will run 10-20 yards while running through/over/past/ but mostly through guys. 


    Royce was that last Oregon back I remember to have that ability constantly, but there was this guy from Lacey, Washington a few years before him who could plow over guys. I wonder whatever happened to him 🤔




    Also, LeGarrette Punch .... Er, Blount, used to have that ability when he was able to stay on the field. 


    Light, twitchy, fast, and elusive is always fun to watch... But sometimes you just wanna see a back bulldoze the field.

  4. The "Pick" represents the turning point in the trajectory of the program. The day Oregon said "we are here". That onside kick was a well timed, great play, but prolly won't swing the program in an upward direction. (But who knows) This could be a great conversation. What are the pivotal moments in Duck history? (the footnotes version)

    It's possible that Clemson could fall a bit too.  They had to bench DJ, and it wasn't a convincing win, playing from behind, at home.

    Yeah, but the darlings of the ACC are sure to stay top 6. Bama could pass them, but not likely. My guess is the top 6 stay the same. It's looking like Oregon could be #7

    I agree and would be nervous if the Ducks were to play in the playoffs today.  We would have to rely on our offense to outscore the other team.

    Right? ... And against an elite defense, who knows how Oregon would perform? Georgia? I would take a win in Vegas, and a win in a NY6 bowl. A great, but realistic way for DL to end his first year as HC.

  7. Bama is sinking Mississippi State. Mike Leach is leaving Tuscaloosa tonight like:





    TCU is behind right now to K State. A TCU loss, along with Ole Miss could be very good for Oregon.


    Little Brother is handling Colorado. No surprise there. 


    Furd beat Arizona State. Good for Coach Shaw. 


    It will be nice to see how Cal does at home hosting the Mutts. Oregon fans may want to watch. 


    Any other games interesting to y'all?

    Just an all around excellent game. So impressive.


    And there's nothing wrong with giving up 30 points to UCLA, which is the least number of points they scored all season. They average 40 ppg,


    Great coaching.

    Oregon needs to play at an elite level to win a Natty. Giving up 448 yards/30 points to a good team may be fine for a team not playoff bound, but Oregon needs to do better to be an elite playoff contender.  


    I agree though, great coaching in-game today.

    The special teams haven't been hurting us but the defense couldn't get off the field against UCLA. 

    Yeah, I agree that defense should be the biggest concern, and special teams have improved (that onside kick!), however even DL said in his post game presser that improvement on special teams is still needed. (although he says that about everything 😁


    There's that great article over on Fishduck.com, which was well written, about this subject. You'd like the author. 😉

  10. Great win!


    I do have some reservations, however. I hear talk about "playoff", and I can't accept it. I do not think Oregon is a playoff team yet. UCLA is good, maybe even great, but certainly not elite. No Pac12 team is elite this year, imo. Including Oregon. It takes being elite to be a playoff team. I do believe Oregon is on the way, and perhaps next year, but there will be inconsistencies even still with a QB change, and players leaving for the draft. 


    I'm confident that Oregon is a Pac12 Champ caliber team this year, but just not a National Championship Team. But hey, it's only my opinion, and... anything can happen in CFB!


    Go Ducks!!!
