    Also... A healthy Nix would have won both games which also shows just how fragile this Oregon team is. Our defense wasn't going to win many games on their own and needed the offense the carry. 

    Yes, this!

    it feels like every year we drop one or two to a team that is inferior (either roster or W/L record) that we had no business losing to.

    I think that's been true in the recent past, but losing to uw and osu this year, not so much. They both have winning records, 10-2 and 9-3. Different than losing, in the past, to a 3-9 Stanford team last year or to a 1-3 Cal team (2020).

    Annie,

    I don't know if this is the answer, but I know that TV is more conservative and careful than radio and what you might be hearing is a 30 second delay put on the TV broadcast as a safeguard to allow a last second edit in case something might get on aIr that was not supposed to be there.  Example, some unruly, perhaps intoxicated fan yelling something obscene that the audio equipment picks up.  If that were to happen, the TV engineers could edit it out and the audience would never know.

    Just a thought

    Could be. I was just surprised at how long the delay was, at least in this instance. I walked from one end of the house where the radio was on to the other end of the house where the TV was on, and the TV was still behind quite a bit. If there had been anyone else in the room at the moment I could have looked like a genius in "predicting" what would happen on the next play. 😉

  4. I know that radio is usually a few seconds ahead of the TV in the games, but I had the radio on in the bedroom and when I went back out into the living room the TV coverage was still behind by about 30 seconds. I know they had some power supply problems in Corvallis and at the stadium, so maybe that was it, but I'm sure the time difference is usually not that much.

    The trophy for the game formerly known as the civil war has been a platypus since 1959.

    The Platypus Cup really is the most fitting name for the game IMHO, even better than civil war. 

     

    It highlights the silly, nature-loving, Oregonian culture of both Ducks and Beavs. 

     

    And yet, the platypus trophy keeps getting "lost." 😄  Someone doesn't want it found, either, I suspect. Have to say, I'm not a fan of the platypus trophy or name for the game.

    Under Coach Bellotti, Oregon lost an OC every couple of years to take head coaching positions.  At one point, it seemed as though half of the Pac-10 coaches were former Oregon OCs.

    It's one of the consequences of a successful program and is better than the alternative. 

    Yes, definitely true, though I was thinking more of assistants such as Zoomer, Campbell, etc. who were here for so many years. I do remember Borges leaving after one year in a parallel move to OC at UCLA and I seem to remember that Belloti was ticked about that.

    I thought the name change was unnecessary (for the reasons many of your have noted). But I turned on a dime when Dennis Dixon and other former Ducks said the name always bothered them. ...

     

    This. Players and former players play the game, and they are the ones who asked for the name change.

    ...  Successful programs are always going to lose assistants who want to become coordinators, and coordinators who want to become head coaches.

    While this is quite true, I think of the years that so many long-ago Duck assistants stayed, perhaps because they weren't getting big offers to leave, but I think liking being position coaches, liking living in Eugene was part of it too.

    As an interested fan I'd like to know: Has Lanning given any injury/player availability updates for Saturday's game as yet? Can Bo play and, if so, how limited is he expected to be?

    This is from a couple of days ago. Not sure if there have been or will be any updates before the game.

    Lanning was asked about the health of QB Bo Nix. He gave a guarded answer, but hinted at some positive news that was...
