  1. 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 😜.

  2. 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! 🦆

  3. 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!

  4. 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.  

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.
