  1. Maybe Lanning did the clipping? Let me explain. 


    I know DL is the Head Coach, but from what I gather, he hired a knowledgeable, terrific staff - for a reason. Maybe it was Will Stein whose wings have been clipped? Or rather, tampered. 


    After all, Stein is the OC. He calls the plays. DL may have given him more slack previously, but might have pulled the leash a bit since our loss to the ... 🤮


    I can't say it. 


    I know I'm speculating, but hey, who among us actually knows what's happening behind the curtain? 


    Whatever happens, I want a team with more consistency in all phases. I'm not expecting perfection, cause that's non-existent in football, but being consistently good in all phases of the game should be attainable for OBD. Let's hope they get there by Saturday... And stay there. 🦆


    Great observation, btw. Keeps us thinking.

    OK... to everyone picking washington to win... if you actually pick right you win nothing... zero... zilch!


    So stop it!

    Well, as for me, I'm not picking, I'm predicting. I feel that there's a difference. 


    And I'd rather be proven wrong by the Ducks, than by those butt sniffing mutts.

  3. I love how that jdub guy posts a link that contradicts his opinion with the facts. Can't ask for more perfect example of "go home, and try again tomorrow". 😆

    As for the games, the only one that jumps off the page to me is the Bama game. I'm not saying Bama will lose, because it definitely depends on which Bama team shows up, but Ole Miss could surprise everybody.  

    Oregon could also be in the same boat, but I'm a homer, so I won't say that 😜.

  4. I believe that Lannings comments didn't bother Dion. That's purely my opinion, and speculation at best, but to me, DL's comment only solidifies the effort and success Dion has had thus far.


    I mean, Colorado was a train wreck. There's no denying it. Lanning pointing that out only enhances the focus on the fantastic job Dion has done.


    It's like seeing a rust bucket in a junk yard, and calling it junk, like it is. But that same junk can be fixed up and made all shiny new. ... Still, it once was a pile of junk. But all credit would go to the man/woman who restored it to its former glory. 


    I don't think anyone would get mad for calling it what it once was. Much like Lannings comment - calling Colorado what it once was.


    Dion may realize that, but more likely, he just accepts the truth. CU flat out sucked 11/12ths of the time it was in the PAC, before this year. 


    More on point, I'm also happy that those two great coaches have mutual respect for each other. And one can only hope that that respect, and regard trickles down to each respective team. We don't need a chippy game, littered with laundry.  


    May the best Anas platyrhynchos win! 🦆

  5. To be fair, Coach Lanning wasn't way off base. 


    2011 -  3-10

    2012 - 1-11

    2013 - 4-8

    2014 - 2-10

    2015 - 4-9

    2016 - 10-4

    2017 - 5-7

    2018 - 5-7

    2019 - 5-7

    2020* - 4-2

    2021 - 4-8

    2022 - 1-11


    *2020 was obviously a shortened season, so who knows what the outcome would have been had they faced a full schedule. 


    With the exception of 2020, Colorado had just 1 winning season in the PAC12 - 2016, which ironically was Oregon's worst PAC12 season. Coincidence? 


    Obviously with Dion as HC, Colorado has already shown that they can be competitive this year. But to be fair, Coach Lanning wasn't speaking about this year. He was referring to the past 12 years, which Colorado, even in their 10-4 season, failed to beat Okie State in the Alamo Bowl. Thus, no championships. 


    Championships - this is what I believe Coach Lanning was referring to, imo. 


    Either way, social media is chirping, so best that Oregon just takes care of business when Prime and crew come to town. 


    Go Ducks!

  6. I don't feel so old now. I was 11. But you can be sure I was gathered around a TV with my family watching that game. Just don't remember the details. That's what's so weird about what I was saying before. I'm obviously wrong, and looking back I remember now that we hadn't played them this century, but for some reason my brain was convinced we had. False Memory Syndrome, I guess.  

  7. After reading Mic's post on the news thread, I thought I'd make a thread to reply, and also discuss the history of these matchups. 


    Starting with the quote from Mic:


    "I'll fess up: I had to do a double-take when I saw the stat that Hawaii had beaten Oregon in the last three matchups between the two schools - and that by the amazing margin of 101-54 favoring the Rainbow Warriors.  I definitely remember them beating O in the Rose Bowl year, but Hawaii has had an amazing record of success against the Ducks.


    Here's to Oregon making a sizable dent in that 101-54 margin, if not outright wiping it out!  GO DUCKS"


    Like Mic, I too was shocked. For some reason, my mind was trying to tell me that the Ducks had played them in recent times. Furthermore, that we had owned them. 


    Why? ... 


    I looked up the history between these two teams here on Go Ducks, and found that they last played in '94... Holy moly... Am I that old? Seems like it was just a few years ago. 


    Well, looking at the history of these two teams, it's good to know that we lead 4-3, and have the largest margin of victory (47-0 Woot!), albeit in 1921. Oddly enough that year, we also played "Pearl Harbor".


    Well, I guess time has a way of blending itself in memory. Or maybe I just have... What's it called?.. 




    Looking forward to 5-3. Go Ducks!
