  1. Whittingham is being paid $5.2 million this year. Seriously doubt that he is thinking along the lines you suggest.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Just read through this thread. Does everyone know the score? Ducks are up by 21 and playing great. Just so you know:)
  5. Evaluate data. We don’t have data on the freshmen quarterbacks.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. One of the worse loses ever given all the circumstances—which we all know. Oh well. Life goes on
  9. Bad schemes on both side. Moorhead probably won’t be getting a HC shot after this. Good?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. School money plus Nike plus P Knight money equals Mario being well compensated.
  15. Be sure to listen to Pate's breakdown of the Utah game at 43:30. You'll like what you hear.
  16. It appears he is gone. Remember he is young and finding his way in the world.
  17. Galloway said that? At this point of the season a 2nd loss should bump you out of the top four.
  18. The extra year of eligibility for players due to Covid has to cause headaches for coaches. Lots of players piled up creating a log jams at positions such as WR for the Ducks. Add in the relaxed transfer rules and you have this. Have to admit that in my view there was a nice rhythm to four years of eligibility to use in five years of school.
  19. No bad feeling for me. Baylor's coach knew his conference's tie breaker rule and knew the extra three points could be important. As for the crowd on the field, I don't think I've ever seen delay of game called when the crowd prematurely rushes the field. It happens, there a bunch of excited college kids.
  20. Sure it could blow up. But my belief is that the Ducks would not be in the current four and would not have a chance for the final four but for the AB's play. I say go for it.
  21. No. Easy to call penalties on the other team. It's really about the Ducks, not the refs.
  22. Alternate history and universe! Has the makings of a great show. Where would Phil and Penny fit in?
  23. No one gives us respect? "No one" has us number 3. How does that work?
  24. I don't see this game as a trap. The coaches and players know the history between the Ducks and Cougars and they all saw what the Cougars did to ASU. Throw in the facts that this is for the lead in the North and a spot in the final four is at stake the team will be ready. Of course, they are a bunch of 18 to 23 year olds.....
