  1. I just read Shoe Dog a couple weeks ago. Yeah, I can see Phil Knight pulling the offer.
  2. Miami has a lot to offer, family and friends probably being the most important. Then consider weather and proximity to recruits and it is the leader. Then consider that Florida does not have a state income tax. Oregon's taxes incomes over $250,000 (married couple) at 9.9 percent. That's a huge financial advantage. Yes, Oregon has facilities, but those can be built. So, in my view Mario is gone. I'm sure Mullens has a list of HC candidates. Hope Chris Peterson is on it.
  3. TEs were open last night. Brown wouldn't/couldn't trow to him. Some how he never learned the simple principle that TEs are a QB's best friend. Of course, Brown can't learn it if it is not taught...... Chick or egg: Was Oregon's offense bad because of players or coaches?
  4. Cristobal is not on PERS. For your information, PERS Tier One is for employees hired before 1996. Cristobal is on OPSRP. Way too much beyond that..:)
  5. Could have easily said he will be Oregon’s coach year but didn’t. Not at all straight. In my mind he made the elephant bigger.
  6. Defense played hard until it couldn’t…… Difficult to tell from TV but it sure appeared that Brown constantly didn’t see open receivers. But beyond that, horrible coaching on the Duck side. And horrible effort by offensive line. And Brown was really bad tonight.
  7. Bring Williams back as what? Someone would have to be fired or reassigned.
  8. Ducks have two more games this season. I doubt Moorhead coaches in the bowl game, therefore game not games.
  9. Yep, sounds like he is heading out. Hope his last game as a Duck is a win.
  10. Whittingham is being paid $5.2 million this year. Seriously doubt that he is thinking along the lines you suggest.
  11. Never thought it was targeting. Didn't launch, not crown of helmet. Just watched it again. View from end zone camera showed it to be facemask to shoulder pad.
  12. I don't agree that it is a forgone conclusion that he goes to Miami if offered. As many have noted the Miami job ain't what it use to be. And it's about time for Duck fans to get over their inferiority complex---Oregon is a big brand in college football. Behind tOSU, Alabama and other. But way bigger than Miami and other not in the top tier. And besides, Mario makes enough to fly private to see his mom, and he can fly her out anytime he wants.
  13. Just read through this thread. Does everyone know the score? Ducks are up by 21 and playing great. Just so you know:)
  14. Evaluate data. We don’t have data on the freshmen quarterbacks.
  15. The coaching staff saw a gap at QB---Shough didn't pan out---he apparently was a dynamo in practice based teammates statements. However, Shough didn't have IT in games. Coaches saw that an brought in Brown, who hasn't been as good as hopes. Yes, having a high level QB is part of coaching but not having IT happens. Given all the injuries, the youth etc, Cristobal has done a good job this year. For fans to say he should be coaching FOR his job; well I don't get it.
  16. Grandpa, I agree with your long post above—except all those QBs will not likely be on the roster next year. Who will leave? Haven’t a clue. But whoever stays need poise, the mental and physical ability to run the offense. For me the key is to be accurate passer and a good enough runner to extend plays and keep the defense honest.
  17. One of the worse loses ever given all the circumstances—which we all know. Oh well. Life goes on
  18. Bad schemes on both side. Moorhead probably won’t be getting a HC shot after this. Good?
  19. Question I have is how much Mario is getting from sources other than his school paycheck. That extra money is not public as far as I know.
  20. I live in the valley(160 ft) have a place in Sunriver (4200), frequently visit Denver (5300). A well conditioned college football player should be fine. The only problem could be on defense if Utah runs a hurry up. The longer you are at altitude the better you will be as a conditioned body will acclimate. The key is to drink lots of water. And I mean lots. If you don’t drink enough you’ll have headaches and be lethargic.
  21. Two reasons. Didn’t want to get hurt and wanted to get ahead of competition for spots with other teams. This is per his dad’s now deleted tweets. And this is my last post about Pittman. Time to move on.
  22. I was really nervous before the Cal and UW games. But have the same feeling I had before tOSU game---calm confidence in the Ducks.
  23. School money plus Nike plus P Knight money equals Mario being well compensated.
  24. Be sure to listen to Pate's breakdown of the Utah game at 43:30. You'll like what you hear.
  25. It appears he is gone. Remember he is young and finding his way in the world.
