    I'm on board with this sentiment. Thompson was recruited by a guy who required vastly different things from his QB. So much has changed offensively since then. Time to officially wipe the slate clean from Crist-no-balls and look to the future. I'll wish TT luck at ASU and hope he winds up on the receiving end of a few sacks when we play them next year.

    I feel the same way about KD at ASU, clear down to being on the receiving end of a few sacks. Oh, except for the wishing him well part. (Yes, I am struggling to climb out above the clouds.)

  2. I was around in the 80's, but I refuse to waddle around in that mess. This team had the right stuff to make the playoffs, and they failed spectacularly. Then they had the right stuff to make the conference championship game and they failed miserably. I will watch the Holiday Bowl, unless a Yellowstone that I haven't seen is on. #tiredoflosingthebigones #tiredofcoacheswhobolt

    In retrospect, pre-mature or not, Dillingham's jump to ASU makes it three-in-a-row:  Taggert to his "dream-job at FSU, Mario to his at Miami and now Dillingham to perhaps his, (at least his alma mater and home state)  ASU.  


    There must be a college out there somewhere, where a brilliant and talented Offensive mind  is coaching in some small, out-of-the-way, poducnk college whom a move to Oregon would be a move waaaaaaay up the football ladder.  So far that they'd never want to go back to that little college again.  Like Chip Kelly who came from New Hampshire, (his alma mater) to Oregon. 


    It took the NFL team Philadelphia Eagles to lure him away.  And at least we had him for more than one year (5 years, to be exact).  Get out the check book Oregon and find us another football genius out in the back 40 somewhere and buy him!

    "Like Chip Kelly who came from New Hampshire, (his alma mater) to Oregon." Which is why, even with youthful flash since him, Chip is still my favorite all time Duck Head Coach. I am so tired of being a stepping stone. I want to do the stepping, on other teams' heads.

    I've been so heartsick since last Saturday night. I have laid in bed and wondered if this whole college football thing was worth it. I have my Giants, and I have my 49ers. Why do I subject myself to the annual torture of Oregon football? We get pretty good, even though we went 0-2 this year, and boom, some lying sack who drooled all over us when he got hired, jumps to a team facing sanctions. I agree 1000% with Mic. We need the next Chip Kelly!

  4. This is a hard one. I can't allow OSU anything except for a root against UW. So both of them are out. Utah, as many before me have said, because Whittingham seems to do it the right way. Stanford, because the entrance requirements are like Sisyphus and his rock. WSU, because the enemy of my enemy is my friend on at least one Saturday weekend in the fall. Besides, could you recruit to The Papoose, or whatever they call that place? It's like Corvallis and West Texas had a baby.

  5. UCLA @ Colorado: Boo and...Who?


    Oregon @ Washington State: What do they call that place? The Papoose?


    Arizona @ California: "In front of a crowd consisting of family members...


    USC @ Oregon State: My Lord, if ever both teams could lose.


    Utah @ Arizona State: "Hey! The coaches office is empty! And he's the only one with keys to the stadium!


    Utah @ Stanford: If there is a God in Heaven, the trees find a way.

  6. Question: If it is there will it be because our players "get it?" Or will it come from the severe decrease in talent across the line of scrimmage? If that's the case all we can hope to be this year is a paper tiger who can thump the EWU's of the world but can't stand and deliver against the good teams still ahead.


    That's why I'm looking forward to the BYU game. Game One told us that we aren't great, and Game Two can only reveal if we are pretty bad. No margin of victory over the Eagles will tell me a thing., but if we struggle...

  7. I listen to a fair number of college football podcasts during the offseason as I like to put a nickel or dime on a game once the shots are fired. One run by two guys I respect a lot predicted that Sewell would be lost against a passing attack.


    Alas, it came to pass.

  8. So, you won't generally find a post from me for a day or two after a Duck game. But this time, I'm only getting angrier as the hours go by, so here I come, same day, or I will violate every rule that Charles has, and probably a few he hasn't considered. As I told the Big Fish in an email right after the game, "The next good stop we make in a down that matters will be our first.


    No hyperbole: That was the worst display of tackling that I have ever seen, at any level of football. I hope there is silence and bowed heads on the flight home." I was worried about Kenny Dillingham. Is Tosh Lupoi what we always thought he was when he was in Montlake? Atrocious and embarrassing. A slap in the face to the team, school, and conference.

    Axel one of your best. Some great lines!


    I would like to see the Ducks stay in a new version of the PAC12 and maybe add Boise State, San Diego State, or Fresno State. Having the Ducks play across the country to get some added TV dollars just isn't worth it. Plus, what a bummer for the players to fly to road games in the Antarctica to freeze their balls off in the middle of winter.


    Let's see ... away game at San Diego State or Wisconsin in December! I like away games where I can play some golf and have a few beers. Curling just doesn't have the same appeal to me. Plus, do we want to dine on Lutefisk in Minnesota or enjoy some Pinot Noir and Gruyere cheese while tailgating at Stanford. 


    This whole thing is a joke with no regard for the athletes or the fans.



    LA, you realize that what you say about Wisconsin could also be said for a November game in the Palouse. At least Wisconsin is the home of Culver's, the finest frozen custard/burger place in the land.

  10. "to flee the Florida heat and hurricanes." When I wrote The Greatest Road Trip Ever Taken" (available on Amazon) I talked to a couple who had planned for years to retire in Florida. About two weeks in and they had enough of the humidity AND THE BUGS! Oh my goodness the bugs in Florida could have saddles and fly you to South Carolina.
