    Longterm I see the end of college sports as we know them, thanks to ESPN and Fox who are primarily to blame and will regret it as time goes by.  I see 2 mega conferences with 20 teams each as the end result.  The ones who will suffer the most are the minorities who will see scholarships drop by the thousands as the smaller schools retrench due to lack of income.

    This makes you wonder if this comes to fruition, if it will result in a few universities dropping their football programs all together. It's a pity but it seems to be the trend in the world these days... The big get bigger while the small get weeded out. 

  2. Whatever gets the clicks.

     

    Pretty sure Uncle Phil has a little more savvy than that. It's amazing the garbage some people will speculate in order to get page views. 

     

    It's my belief that Oregon will be fine wherever they end up because it's a strong brand, a strong program, with a strong upward direction at the moment.

  3. My fat thumb hit "independent" when I meant "stay in the pac". 

     

    Perhaps that can be fixed?

     

    I'm sentimental about the Ducks staying in the pac and making it work. That may not be the best direction for the program, but that's why I'm not in charge of those decisions. I lead with my heart. 

     

    I'm confident that the best decision will be made by the powers that be. So long as we win when we play against Washington, Oregon State, USC, .... I'll be content.

  4. Great conversation, fellas!

     

    I know Oregon will beat the purple puppies come next February (and November 12th!). I just honestly hate those leg lifters sooo much that it pains me to see them higher than the Ducks on any (good) list, even if the view is skewed. 

     

    Awesome comments from an awesome community of posters. I love it ... almost as much as I love our Ducks!

  5. Lanning didn't exactly knock one out of the park in the 2022 recruiting class where the D line is concerned. A couple of 3*'s, a 4*, and a trio of 3* transfers. Add that to the mix of what we already have, and we are looking at decent depth building. This year, we've got a 3* on the list, but it's early yet. I'm hoping for some 4/5* studs to join the flock and change the direction of defense for our program.

     

    Time will tell.

  6. ... I can't stand to see Washington above Oregon on this list.

    Oregon isn't jumping the gun on recruits. Taking their time, evaluating, vetting. Getting the best fit for the program. 

     

    This is what I'm telling myself. I really think that the best is yet to come, and Oregon will be fine next time we get LOI's signed. 

    But I still have this nagging worry that we won't get great results from this "amazing recruiting staff".   Paranoid perhaps? Probably.

    But still, I can't stand to see Washington above Oregon on this list.    👉🦆

  7. You can lead a horse to water...

     

    Too bad this kid doesn't see himself on game day in the best stadium in the land. He will never get to dance out there between the 3rd & 4th quarters like so many lucky kids do. 

     

    Ultimately, he had a choice to make. That choice, he will have to live with for his entire collegiate career, up until his second year, when he's eligible for transfer... 

     

    This kid will probably not regret his decision. However, as fans of the best team in all of sports, we will lament the one(s) that got away. 

     

    Good luck Randy! ... Or whatever your name is.

  8. Watching his junior season highlights (high school), it looks like he doesn't carry the ball "high 'n tight" like he should, yet he didn't have any fumbles in 2021. 🧐🤔🤞

     

    As to a need at RB, I'm in the camp which believes DL is just fostering as much competition at each position as possible. This kid was a 4*, so he's bound to elevate the room. Great move imo.

  9. January 2nd 2016.

     

    31 - 0  All Ducks at halftime. The rest is ugly history. This is the biggest letdown game in my memory.

     

    The 2011(2010 season) NCG would come in at a distant 2nd... I mean, we were in that game until the end, at least. 

     

    Furd in 2012,  Zona in 2013,  Zona in 2014!, tOSU in 2014 (first ever playoff NCG... C'mon!)

     

    There are others, for sure. But these games stand out above all, to me.
