  1. Just wanted to open a thread to discuss all the other games on today. 



    So far, looks like TCU is taking it to Oklahoma. 20 - 3 so far, in the first quarter!


    Michigan VS Iowa is turning out to be the slug-fest everyone expected. 


    Ole Miss is up on Kentucky at present!


    Minnesota is down 10 - 0 vs unranked Purdue! Start rowing boys!



    This day has only just begun. Here's to a great day of College Football!

      I have never seen so many trick plays in a game before.  

    That play where they lined up, then acted like they are looking to the sideline for another call... Man... It sure burned us. Gonzalez was completely fooled, as were over half our guys. 


    Hats off to their staff for putting a heck of a game plan together. They should have won that game. 


    Sure glad they didn't. 😏


    And I agree, WSU will play spoiler to someone this season.

    They haven't played anyone but what looks like a bad Michigan State team. MSU was demolished by Minnesota yesterday 34-7. 


    That "ranked win" the Huskies is losing its shine by the day and fast. Still an important win for the conference. 

    Who has WSU played besides a seemingly "bad" Wisconsin team, who was crushed by tOSU yesterday? ... Yet they still put up 375 passing yards on us. 


    My point isn't to cherry pick stats, or compare this team to that. It's simply that Oregon obviously needs improvement in their pass defense, and that their rush defense is superior.

    Stats are kind of a funny thing, is the run defense that good or is it that no one bothers running the ball because the past defense is that bad.

    I guess by that point, you'd have to simply assess by looking at average yards given up. Oregon is at 3.39 yards per rush attempt (102 attempts). That's good for 44th in the nation. 


    On the other hand, pass defense is giving up 8.1 yards per attempt (149 attempts) , which is good (or bad) for 109th in the nation. 


    Either way, it's quite obvious watching the games that the run defense is superior to the pass defense.

  5. The back end (and middle) certainly needs some growth. Oregon's passing defense is ranked an abysmal 125th at the moment.


    What's worse is we haven't even played the best passing team yet. (Eewdub is currently ranked 1st nationally 🤮)


    In fact, there are 3 games upcoming with teams ranked 30th or better in the passing attack. I know it's fluid, but they all should remain a threat. 


    Oregon will need significant gains in defending the pass to remain in contention for the Pac12 Championship. 


    One plus is our run defense. It looks pretty good. But being one dimensional on defense is bad. 


    Also, what happened to tackling?


    Grow Ducks! 🦆
