  1. By the way thanks DNC for pushing through and writing a well thought out article. I'm a spinal injury survivor so good luck to you with your recovery.
  2. I'm worried about the Ducks being too young and not playing well on the road. I've noticed that younger teams, even though they are more talented than their opponents, can struggle when they play outside of their friendly home confines. Maybe that's one of the reasons we played so poorly against UGA. I guess we will find out this Saturday at 1 p.m..
  3. Last year UGA had one of the dominant defenses ever. Then the draft took most of them away. Thought it might take awhile to get all the new pieces working together even as talented as the players are. Now we're 3 games in and from my vantage point they look even better than last year and that's a tall order. Still the competition hasn't been against the top CFB teams of this year. You and UGA won't know for sure how good they are until said games happen. Imo any team of basically kids are suseptible to the rat poison of the hype machine until they really know for sure if they are good or not. How many games it takes is anyone's guess. Coaching and critical injuries are also a big part of what transpires throughout this process. You also play in a tough conference although your division hasn't been as good as in the past. All I can say is good luck for the rest of the season. Then you will know the answer to your question.
  4. In my analysis over the years I have seen a trend develop. I look at team's that struggle on the road (especially the Ducks) and have noticed they are young, starting a lot of frosh and sophs. I don't know how to qualify this 22 team. At start of the season I thought they were young but because they had mostly all played last year this years team was young but experienced. Then the debacle of Georgia got me thinking. Are they a young team who will struggle on the road or not? What do all of you think.
  5. Impressive by Cam kicking out Of end zone 2 for 2 fgs
  6. I believe the time zone change played a part and will until I see them play poorly on the West Coast before I will believe otherwise. People may think that's just an excuse. Well every time I have traveled back east it took me several days to get over jet lag and I wasn't having to be physically active. I know it's a big thing in pro football that teams from the west who play the east Coast team's are at a disadvantage and usually perform poorly. I believe it's even more applicable for college players. IMHO besides that the new staff coaching new schemes, the first game of the season on the road, and not playing some patsy but the reigning champ's also were big reasons why what happened, happened.
  7. I thought our ol looked okay. Would prefer 1/2 backs instead of 4. Didn't seemed to find any rhythm.
  8. And I had other thoughts to ponder on.
  9. I'm not looking for excuses but viable reasons for why we executed so poorly.
  10. No but there's still jet lag just ask the western pro teams that have to play back east. It's not as easy as it seems.
  11. After being disgusted until noon today I wonder if our performance was impacted by the time zone difference, being the first game, new staff, and 3rd new offensive and defensive schemes in the four years most of our players have been through. It sure looked like it. Not taking anything away from Georgia, they were simply a machine.
  12. Very funny but dead on accurate on the fact that the SEC hardly ever play an ooc away game and the one less conference game in November is huge. It keeps them healthy vrs The PAC 12 and even the B1G who play nine
  13. All I got to say is here we come. Win or lose, we are going to leave it on the field.
  14. Thanks for the post. I wasn't able to watch it on TV. Now let's show Georgia Duck football. In his honor let's win this game and have a season he would have been proud of. He is still here.
  15. This is why I have been so bullish on the Ducks this past year. We have the talent plus experience to compete with the big boys this year. You add the inspiration the new coaching staff brings and all I can say is watch out America, here comes the Ducks and we are flying high!
  16. We still don't know if he is even starting yet. I heard some rumors that TT was nipping at his heals in fall camp and that was why DL didn't name a QB. UG and everyone else thinks it's Nix and it won't be. That will be the first shocking thing of many tomorrow. But if it's Bo I believe he's going to do fine. He's did everything he could to be ready for this moment .
  17. We are hoping on having a more balanced offense. Looking for a deep passing game that will stress the defense. The last couple years we didn't do that very effectively. Defences were thereby able to stack the box to stop our running attack. Because of this, I believe we were constantly in tight ball games. It wore on everyone. So we hope our talented WR's T Franklin, D Thornton, C Cota, C Chapman, slot WR's K Hutsen, S McGee, and TE's Ferguson and Molokai are used. And we see numerous deep balls all season long. Bombs away!
  18. I been noticing quite a lot of new and even established HC not letting on who their starters are for the first game. I also read Kirby Smart's presser and you can see where DL gets his style from.
