    What are your thoughts about which option to choose when the opening game coin toss goes your way?


    Receive or Defer? 


    I prefer to defer unless the opposing team has a strong offense AND when they are home to prevent an over boisterous crowd during the first drive. I think WSU fits that criteria.


    If the Duck defense can stop them on their first drive, that's a huge advantage if the Duck offense punches it in on their first drive. But if WSU were to score and the Ducks fail, that's a bit deflating.


    Usually, I like deferring and getting the ball first to open the 2nd half after making adjustments at half-time.


    Thoughts? What are your criteria for receiving vs deferring?

    I agree with you 100%... Like verbatim.


    Get out of my head! 😁



  2. Streaming is the future. I ditched cable a few years back, and haven't looked back. I don't miss any games I care about. 


    Since I'm already a prime member, and have a smart devices in every room of my house, I'm all in on this idea. 


    I agree with Log Haulin. Prime Video (as it's called now) would reach millions more folks than the old P12 deal ever did. It'd give folks the ability to see every P12 game/event, and probably bolster the production value, as well (hopefully). 


    Anyone ever watch Top Gear? That show was huge, because of streaming. Well now those guys are over on Amazon, rebranded, with a much bigger budget, and their show is great! Plus, it reaches many more people than the old show ever did. 


    Streaming is the future. And I've got a front row seat. 


    Go Ducks!

  3. Georgia throttled Oregon last week. We know that fact. 


    The 33-0 Georgia win today raises some questions.


    How could Samford allow less points scored than Oregon? 


    Did Georgia just let their bench play from the 2nd quarter on? 


    Did Kirby's game plan mean to take it easy on Samford? 


    Was Oregon just that terrible last week? Or was Georgia just amazingly on point? 


    I didn't watch the game, but it looks like Bennet, and the 1's played most of the game.  


    Playing down to the competition? 


    Oregon obviously won big today, and BYU is currently tied with Baylor,... So next week is looking like a really big game. 


    A telling game. 


    Georgia plays South Carolina next week. A middling team last year, who just lost to Ark. 

    So we'll get a better idea of that team.


    BYU , win or lose today, will undoubtedly be looking for a win over Oregon next week. 


    BYU just took the lead. 🥺


    I'm asking so many questions because of the amount of uncertainty on any given Saturday. College Football is crazy, and anyone can win big, or lose big any given week. 


    I'm just trying to get some semblance of what to expect this year, based on the performance of this year's opponents. It's proving to be a challenge.



    I feel like I'm rambling (too much celebration juice ☺️), so I'll end this post with one question...


    What's your take on this team, and how do you see them performing this year? 


    As always, Go Ducks!!

  4. This season in all will be mediocre, at best. It's what to expect when you have a new system on every side of the ball, an entire new staff, and a handful of transfers learning the "Oregon way" (Whatever that is anymore).


    I saw this game for what it was gonna be. I said a while back that Georgia was on another level.




    It's easy to see. They have top tier talent all over. They have a proven system that they know flawlessly, and can execute to perfection. 


    The coaching staff know DL intimately, and prolly Tosh, as well. They had answers to everything we did, seemingly. And tore apart our well known defense. 


    This game would have had a different outcome had our staff been in year 4 or 5, imho (Although, probably still a loss).


    We are in for a rollercoaster of a season, at least until things really start to gel. But give it time OBD faithful.... We'll get back to our winning ways. 


    As always, Go Ducks!

    He is a Georgia boy, but he doesn’t tend to show a lot of bias.

    Mhmm.... Sure. Something tells me he really enjoyed finishing each analysis of Oregon's potential depth chart with a confident "but not against so-n-so Georgia player". 


    The trouble is, he's probably mostly right. 🤷🏻‍♂️


    I'm not sure who said it, but I read somewhere that even a loss for Oregon will gain them experience simply but just playing against the best competition, and seeing first hand how a championship program is put together.  


    Let's hope, as Duck fans, that there's more to cheer about than just that. 


    Go Ducks!!!!

    With all due respect: It's the statement you made earlier about the Ducks not measuring up period.  I guess I'm not sure where the Ducks don't measure up somewhere.  What's your guess on the final score?

    That was me who said that. I stand by it. 

  7. There's talkin' smack... And then there's just plain old being rude. 


    I'm happy the fans who post here know the difference.  (It helps to have fantastic moderators, as we do!)


    I love the Ducks, but am not delusional. When they win big again, and against the absolute best opponent, then I will be more willing to call out a win where one shouldn't be. 


    I hope for zero injuries, and for everyone to have a very fun game. If they win, I'll eat crow.... And love it!

  8. Oregon doesn't measure up to Georgia. Period. 


    However, I feel like this team is headed in the right direction, and perhaps if there had been a home & home, then Oregon would have given the bulldogs a good fight in the second series. 


    But this year, too many unknowns, and variables working against the ducks. 


    I don't see it happening this year. Not under the current circumstances.
