  1. Earlier this year Coach Lanning referred to "watering the bamboo."


    A Chinese bamboo tree takes five years to grow. It has to be watered and fertilized in the ground where it has been planted every day. It doesn't break through the ground for five years. After five years, once it breaks through the ground, it will grow 90 feet tall in five weeks!


    While I hope it will be sooner than five years, I also didn't expect to see major improvements right away. One game at a time.

    One of the most glaring questions I have is: "Just how bad are our backup QBs?"


    To have left Nix in ALL GAME, for what was truly a terrible performance, AND a historically horrendous season opening game, I think begs this question.



    I think this was posted on one of the other threads, but it does address the issue of leaving Nix in

  3. This will give you information about UO parking. Scroll down to the map and you'll see the Millrace Garage, which is right by a path that leads to Autzen. If you turn right just as you get to the garage, there has been a lot that provides parking for Duck games for $10 (as of last year, anyway). If you turn left just as you reach the Millrace Garage it takes you to a lot where I think you can pay by phone and I believe that's $15. But get there early. If you click on the map, it gets large enough to read the names of the roads.

    Other parking at the UO just be sure you don't park by a sign that says "Reserved at all times."

  4. Wtih the Ducks having an entirely new set of coaches, including a HC who has not been a HC before, and QBs who have never started a game for the Ducks, I don't know what to think about the game against Georgia, or the entire season, for that matter.

    And sorry, it looks like more night games are coming.

    "In theory, it could offer weekly kickoffs at 7:30 p.m. Pacific on Friday and Saturday night for 13 weeks. That's 26 games, with little or no competition, in primetime windows for the West Coast and Mountain Time Zone audiences."


    The only night games I watch are Duck games, and then I'm in my jammies ready for the 20-second walk to the bedroom as soon as the game ends. I can't believe that the  audience/money for a night game compares to say, a 12:30 start time, especially in the Central and Eastern Time zones where almost no one watches West Coast night games.

    That's what SC/UCLA are selling... By comparison, Furd's trip is shorter.  😀


    BTW, my wife and I are hoping to make the same short trip to watch this game, if the airlines cooperate.   Last chance before our daughter graduates from ND!

    Hope you get to go to the game, and Congratulations to your daughter!

    To Mario...two things are most important; toughness and loyalty.  He played Anthony Brown almost exclusively because he was showing underclassmen to wait your turn because he will be "loyal" to you when your turn comes.


    When Cristobal heard the boos, (and knew it was directed at him) I believe he regarded that as a betrayal by the "ungrateful" Oregon fans, the worst thing you can do in his world, and that is being "disloyal."


    After he got over the shock?  I believe he made the "I'm headed to Miami" decision, and that was when....the Cal game?  In his mind--we deserved to be dumped, and did not deserve his full attention because of such terrible disloyalty....



    If this is true, it will be interesting to see what happens if Miami has a so-so season or two. Will the fans give him a chance and stick with him, or will there be some boos in the stands at Hard Rock Stadium? And if there should be boos, how will he react?

  8. My feeling is that since Mario is no longer the coach at Oregon that I don't have all that much interest in him anymore. He recruited well at Oregon, took the team to PAC-12 championships, but sometimes lost games that it certainly seems shouldn't have been lost, and left in a way that left a sour taste in the mouth in that he seemed to be out the door by the middle of November. But for good or ill, he's Miami's coach now. I'd much rather focus on Dan Lanning and the Ducks.
