  1. I tend to have a blast through all 4 quarters when in Autzen. (And pre/post game too!)


    We each have our own experiences.


    Having said that, I wouldn't be opposed to some added new traditions. Anything that builds upon, imo, one of the best GameDay experiences I've had the pleasure to attend, is good in my book. 


    Mostly, though, what I want to experience, is winning! Obviously the games are a whole lot better when your team is piling on the points. (Imo)


    Opinions vary, though.

    No pressure on him just because his team is up by 60???


    I'd say he had all kinds of pressure. The fans have been talking down on him for two years. If he can't even perform against a team that is down 60 points he is totally done. That's pressure. There are 50,000 people in the stands and over a million more on TV - that's pressure.


    If he wasn't feeling any pressure it is because of far superior coaching from Will Stein - which I believe he got.

    Certainly after his first run - and hit - TT was looking comfortable. He did well. I think WS will continue to keep him on a good path.

    My bad, I meant no pressure to score. I meant he could just go out there and have fun. 


    I see your point tho, but we should agree that both points are speculative. Nobody but TT knows what he was feeling. 


    However, he did look sharp, and to your point, I also think Will Stein has done a great job. Let's hope we can hold on to him for a bit.

  3. I don't want to be a Debbie Downer here, but as well as TT played in that quarter, I can't help but wonder if he would preform as well if his team wasn't up by 60 points, where there's absolutely no pressure on him. Not saying he hasn't made strides, and that he isn't talented, only saying that perhaps he doesn't do well under pressure? 


    Well, as it is, we'll find out. But I wish him all the luck & success he deserves. Good kid, who stuck around because he loves being a Duck!

  4. LSU got rolled! I watched quite a bit of that game (when I wasn't making/eating dinner). Looked to me like they were gassed too early, plus horribly out-schemed. But I have to feel a little sorry for LSU, as they also had ZERO SACKS! 


    Some of you on here remember a certain LSU fan from this other site (6) who I'd love to chat with right about now. 😆

    LSU will rebound, but prolly not enough to be a contender. BK is a good coach. He'll get his team to a good bowl.

    I just looked at the snap counts... Many of the big defensive starters were on the field for less than 25 snaps. 


    But I am looking for improvement on the sack front. Need to get to the QB and take him down. 


    I know I saw quite a few throw aways from PSUs QB which are some pretty smart moves. But need to get to the QB faster moving forward.



    Bigger fish await, and if Oregon doesn't have a pass rush against a lowly FCS team, then we're in BIG trouble this year, in this league. 


    I know I'm being skeptical, but I'm also going to be patient. If next Saturday shows more of the same, then I'll develop a worry. 


    For now, I think I'm sick of the topic. How about that Offense!! 😎🐥

    Right there solved the mystery of the lack of sacks. 


    20 passing attempts. The rest of the plays were handoffs to run. You can't sack a runner ... It's a TFL. 


    Granted... Yeah 3 TFLs isn't great. But the dress was also pretty bland. And keep in mind the defense also held PSU to 8 first downs. That's not a lot of plays. 


    Not trying to make an excuse... But we also don't know enough yet to judge. 


    The biggest jump in development happens between games 1 and 2. So here's hoping the defense makes that jump.

    I see your point. But I still look at it as 0 sacks out of 20 chances. 


    I agree though that it's too soon to judge. I just expected more from a defensive line that was hyped up a bit during camp. 


    Lesson learned.

    They'll just assume you don't have the line play, or defensive toughness.

    I'm confused by this statement.


    If "Oregon and USC come into that conference and simply outscores everyone", then one would have to assume it's their opponents line play, or defensive toughness that should be questioned. 


    Is this what you meant? 🤔

    I hope those responsible for the Pac's demise see these results and rue their part in it.



    Was this the mindset of the Pac-12? 


    Seems like sweet justice if all 12 teams win all/almost all their OOC games. Especially for the little brothers of the league. 


    Those responsible will have to bare the shame for their part in destroying one of the oldest conferences, and it's traditions, in all of college football. And rightly so. 


    It's a pity. But nothing to do but move forward.

    SACKS - 0, Zip, Nada against an overmatched group of athletes. TFL - 3. 

    Yep. And for a coach who only cares about playing to the "standard", one has to wonder what his approach is here. Because it seems very strange to me that the standard wouldn't include sacks and tfl's. For a defense that wants to be "feared"? 


    Teams (especially opposing QB's) will fear a potent pass rush, as well as defenders they know can make good tackles behind the line. Add in lockdown DB's and you have a recipe for a feared defense. 


    I trust Lanning, for now. He has done nothing to show me otherwise. But I feel like Tosh, and perhaps Tony T may need to reevaluate their approach. 


    Maybe this was a designed vanilla showing on defense. Who really knows? But it seems like giving the opposition more to prepare for could serve us well. I mean, it sure did in the past whan Chip was here. I'm sure there's an article/video somewhere around here exploring that. 


    Anywho... I don't think our defense played badly, but just that it lacked that deadly and "feared" element, in my opinion. 


    I mean, not one sack? C'mon.

    Five observations, even given the weak opponent:


    D-line solid with addition of Burch to take pressure off Dorlus.


    Secondary still has tackling issues that need to be addressed. 


    O-line is the real deal led by JPJ with Cornelius and Conerly at the tackles 


    Insane group of WRs led by TFrank


    Dilly who?


    I'll add to that by mentioning the outstanding QB & RB play. Well said.

    I'll be interested to see how Texas ends up against Rice, only up by 7 in the 2nd quarter, think they are massively overrated once again, but could be wrong of course😅


    JT Daniels with Rice now in what seems like his 10th team.

    JT Daniels? ... Thought he'd be retired, collecting social security by now.
