WHAT WE LEARNED ON SATURDAY + FRIDAY

Recommended Posts

Friday - ASU is Pac-12 legit. Stanford now has 2 conference  Ls.

 

Hats off to Andy Avalos for taking down BYU.

 

Saturday - Saint Nick in his 101st game vs a NR opponent opponent takes a loss. His 1st loss to a guy who was once an assistant coach, Jimbo Fisher.

 

UGA is now #1. With a bullet. Lot's of guys from this UGA team will be on the field in Oregon's 2022 opener.

 

OR ST now has a conference loss. Bit of a Ducks SOS bummer,

 

Texas vs Oklahoma - Heartbreaker for the Horns. The Ducks WR recruits cannot be that slow compared to the TX/OK receivers, right? True frosh WRs for both teams balled out in this game.

 

Good for the Ducks? Ohio State blew out Maryland. Penn State has a loss.  Michigan and Michigan State won but have to play one another plus Penn State and Ohio State.

 

Bad for the Ducks? Cincy kicked booty. And OK could well win out?

 

Take note? Lincoln Riley benched a QB who was the preseason Heisman favorite, came from behind and won a great game.

 

When it comes to O and play calling, don't diss Sark and Kiffin. TX and Ole Miss got their athletes in space. One lost a close game. One won a close game.

 

Mario slow-mo is a no go. It is absolutely contrary to the way CFB is being played today. It is contrary to the way Joe Moorhead called plays at PSU.

 

Love you David Marsh. Do not disagree with getting younger guys on the field. But as noted above, Oregon's path to the Pac-12 N and the PO is now squarely in the Oregon's hands. And maybe younger guys on the field will help?

 

Last thought. Noah Sewell reminds me of the great LBs who played for Saint Nick back in the day. Smash you in the mouth, but cover guys in crossing patterns?

 

With Verdell out should Noah get reps at RB?

I saw much of the first half of the Red River Shootout.  Those are teams who have good schemes and are well coached.  The players PLAY FAST. 

 

That was a real college football game.  What the Ducks have been doing lately is so plain vanilla, that teams who cannot win can play even with them.

Yep the path has opened for us... and now we have to take this gift and run with it.

 

None of that 2013 crap where Stanford does us a favor and we repay it by losing and giving the tie breaker back to Stanford... ugghh that was not a good game.

 

Here's to looking forward to next week and Oregon v Cal to see what the coaches have cooked up for us. With some hope that it actually looks good!

Hopefully changes will be made before the CAL game.  Put in Cardwell and Benson to help Dye out.  Both of those guys are comparable to Verdell in stature.  They are talented.  Would this be a good time to bring in a new QB, especially since we had a bye week and playing CAL at home?  AB has proven he cannot be relied on in the passing game.

 

Go Ducks, win out!.

I completely agree with all of it!

Interesting thought on Noah Sewell.  I'm assuming you would have him play on both sides of the ball and only bring him in on short down runs for first downs and TDs?

No. He is the only inside LB who is talented and knows what he is doing out there. 

 

If the other inside LBs were healthy and playing well, then that might be a great idea.

Great points JJ.

We need Noah at LB.

We have talent in the RB room, time to use it. Both Cardwell and Benson.

Let Seven return punts.

Time to coach aggressively, throw downfield. 

We now are in control of our own destiny again, it's up to the coaches to put the team in the best place to capitalize. 

Use our recruits.
