Let’s face it. The Ducks as an entertainment product is diminished caliber viewing. Fast hard finish is no more. That was a wasted two minute drill capped beautifully by a fumble. 
 

that the clock management hasn’t yet been figured out is a huge red flag.
 

Is MC trying to get himself better each week. Not seeing it. 
 

defense looks are more varied with more personnel but not exactly Georgia like.

Cannot believe that a five star freshmen Qi is not ready for this moment.  When do we get ahead of the curve and truly develop players instead of count their stars.  Very frustrating.

Clock management wasn't bad for the end of a half. Might as well use all the clock and not leave enough for the cal offense to try anything. 

 

The turnover was the big problem. 

 

Also... Brown is really showing right now that he can't process and make the right decisions fast enough.

Pluses so far:

Great 49 yd field goal by Camden!

Dye has been awesome!

No injuries!

AB completed some passes!

J Johnson made a great catch!

Devon Williams caught some difficult balls from AB!

AND….We’re leading at half!

 

Let’s Go Ducks!!

It's not only the inexperienced youths who are underperforming. Moore, a senior, completely whiffed on that block which led to that fumble before the half.

We were down to one timeout with less than 30 seconds left in the half, and still outside field goal range.

 

That was a sure touchdown waiting to happen with better QB and clock play.

I am encouraged by some blitzes on defense, and setting the edge better on some plays.  

 

Play Rich Brooks style..."win it with defense?"

Why burn the timeout?  More of MC's great game management.

Another throw well short of the 1st down marker?  Why??????  If Dye doesn't pick up the rest of the yards with his feet, Ducks are punting the ball away.

Does Mullens hear the boos? They don't seem to bother MC.

I'm sitting here at the computer because I can't stand to watch what's on the screen. I'm absolutely sick of it. I'm sick of Cristobal recruiting 4 and 5 star players and coaching them down to 2 or 3 stars. I'm sick of watching him completely mismanage the clock. Somebody above said it wasn't bad clock management. WOW! We got the ball with over two minutes left and didn't start running a two minute offense until there was 35 seconds left! Not bad clock management?

 

I suppose not if you're not interested in adding some points before halftime. Cristobal lost the Stanford game with bad clock management. I'm sick of undisciplined players getting bad penalties and stopping momentum. I'm sick of watching them celebrate and talk crap to opposing players after every defensive play. There's plenty more, but right now my thoughts are as disjointed as the Oregon football team.

I think coaches should coach and not go on recruiting trip during a bye week!  Coaching the players you have maybe we wouldn't be so undisciplined and unorganized!
