  1. It's funny that our WR/TE are being dissed. As Dazed pointed out he sees us as #2 room in the Pac.
  2. Add in the leadership and inspiration for his teammates. Go Cam hope with all my thoughts, this is the year. You deserve it more but if not you are still a winner and will always be.
  3. Good to know information. He, like all of us, says take a chill pill. This is far from being over. We are in an OK position. Go Ducks Fly High!
  4. Yes and partner him with Manning who is going to show us he's a 5* and we have 2 great corners. Then we have depth with my breakout player A Dickerson and Barkins with the two super frosh Jalil's and Terrell. Couple that with two tall and fast safety's Bridges and Addison. Throw in experienced, killer nickel/dime DBs B Williams and J Hill. Add in inspiring, top coaches with a dynamic scheme and it brings me to a only one conclusion. We will have a very strong Defensive Backfield.
  5. They'll have to get past Wisc and Iowa, away games in the snow, and defense's that'll knock you in the mouth. His offense is controllable and even with Grinch, teams that run the ball, control the clock, and don't play shootouts, defeated him over the years. I didn't believe OU had as much talent, but you look at the recruiting rankings over the last decade I believe it shows them as top 5. I might be wrong, but history shows us teams that change leagues take numerous years to adjust. I just can't see this being any different.
  6. I don't believe they or the uncivilized spoiled children will be in the east division. That means they are playing Ind., Illinois, Min., Purdue, Iowa, Neb., Northwestern, Wisc.. Not exactly Murderers Row. With that said, history says it'll take awhile for them to play in the championship game, where they'll play the big boys.
  7. I believe top 10 are pretty much shoo ins as great players. Then it's up to the fit of the school, teammates, coaches, and scheme as to the amount of success they can achieve.
  8. If that's the case he needs to stay in the game, bluff his arse off, and just call, never raise. Who knows he might be able to pull out a full house. If any one can do it, it's GK. His skill set is meant for this time and place.
  9. So what's your take on Bo. Do you believe it's going to be same old Bo or do you believe he will have a fresh start with a better line and reach his potential? Did the spring game give any insights? I know you might have already posted on this but I don't remember with everything else that has been going on. I'm interested in your opinion. Thanks.
  10. Get TCU and Oklahoma State to join Pac-12. From the TV numbers above we would have the market cornered. Add in SD St and UNLV for 14 team conference. We'd be in the TX - Dallas and still in the LA market and footprint. Have 2 seven team divisions, Pacific/Mountain. Championship game.
  11. Why stop at 12 take SD St, Fresno State, UNLV, and any other college in the LA market.
  12. I read that Colorado considers the B12 a 'Juco- League'. Ha ha. If true puts a stick of dynamite in them leaving to the B12.
  13. Yes, in Atlanta which is actually a home game for them.
  14. After only 10 practices, with a whole new playbook and players, we know he led the receivers well enough in ST. By Sept 3 he will have had 6 months. I believe as long as he doesn't have to break the pocket most of the time, we will see even more touch.
  15. You have to remember it opens recruiting in the LA area to B1G schools. That's worse than fighting off just the Ducks. And we will still be able to get our fair share. You may be right but history says otherwise.
  16. Yes, you can thank the SEC. I don't believe the B1G voted against the expansion with auto bids but we know for sure the SEC did.
  17. When Verdel was healthy we had a typical Ducks running attack. Problem was he couldn't stay healthy. That's why we need a lot of depth. If the new recruits are better than what we already have, it just makes us better. A five* RB should be better than a 4* RB. Then if you back him up with a runner with a different style providing a 'Thunder and Lighting' look you are in the upper echelons of CFB.
  18. When Klemm fixes our pass blocking I don't believe he will have to be anything like Johnny. He's is a gunslinger though, like Farve, so you have to expect the occasional ' what the hell was that.'
  19. My take is #1 Cardwell We didn't get to see him in spring but the reports said he was ready to be a top RB #2 McGee He's going to be the closest thing to DAT we have seen in yrs. Running, catching, and returning. #3 Thornton. He is going to be the HR pass catcher this year with 75 yrds per game average. # 4 Cota he's going to be our go-to guy when we need a big play. # 5 Herbert is going to be a healthy and ready to compete with the other TE's to be a matchup nightmare. #6 OL Powers/Johnson, Jaramillo, and Harper will see important playing time as injury replacements. # 7 Dollars, Irvine, Neal, and Whittingham will give us RB depth we have never had before. #8 I don't see Nix as a breakout because he was OK at Auburn. He will be better for the Ducks.
  20. If he averaged 2/3 TD passes a game, ran for another one, and we win, would the occasional interceptions be a problem? I don't think I would mind much. What about y'all?
  21. Maybe they need to look at the MLB minors pay. I don't know what it is now but in 2007/8 my nephew was getting 1k a month only during the season and if he played winter ball. He got a 50k signing bonus after being selected in the 11th round by TX as a Jr. relief pitcher from OSU. He played 3 yrs and made it to Double A, then a injury cost him his career. He had to pay for his own lodging, food, etc. Now I'm no math wizard but I believe the current situation is incredibly better. I doubt they will see it that way though. They are kids after all.
  22. "Is this hell?" "No, you've just entered the Twilight Zone." dedoo, dedoo, dedoo, dedoo, dant dant dant dah.
  23. The NCAA is still going after the fan base or schools trying to influence a HS recruit to go to a particular school. The NIL is different issue from what I understand.
  24. That's MC all the way. He's a no nonsense coach. Was his motivation to take away individual focus over the team (which I agree with) or it's all business with no fun? Imho maybe that's why he and the Ducks burned out last year.
  25. I'm so tired of all the speculation. I have no absolutely no input and it's starting to raise my anxiety levels. The best thing for me would be stop reading about it, but I feel compelled to, to stay in the loop. Talk about being between a rock and a hard place. My sympathy goes out to the remaining PAC administration's. They must be going through hell trying to figure it all out. I guess as with everything in life, only time will tell.
