Okay reporters. It's time to ask MC some real questions.

You absolutely have to account for injuries.  Go back to the roster and count the number of starters that are out now or for the year.  Now even Verone McKinley was knocked out of the game.  It doesn't matter how well you recruit, Oregon's had an absurd number of injuries this year to critical guys on both 1st and 2nd string.

Yes, but that doesn’t account for poor play calling, nor MC’s inability to look beyond his favored QB. No doubt injuries have hurt, but Brown throwing bad check down passes on third down and running down the clock when you need to go fast is inexcusable.

I can’t wait to watch the rematch in Vegas for the PAC 12 championship!

Yeah, I can't say I understand MC's decision to stick with AB... doesn't MC know that we need to face Georgia early next season and that TT could really use some experience.

How come TT didn't even get garbage time play?

IF MC isnt careful he could lose a bunch of players and recruits.

Tough night but three of our starting wide receivers were out or quit the team.

Shouldn’t have needed them.

But we were out classed at all 3 levels, 38-7?  Did not look prepared.  I guess Michigan State knows the feeling.  Cristobal's "physical" wasn't there on either side of the ball tonight

I will post the quotes from the MC press conference late tonight, but only the ones of relevance.  So much coach-speak that is useless and the Oregon media will not ask the tough questions because they are complete suck-ups.

 

Why don't I attend and ask the tough questions?

 

Because I would lose my credentials within a week.

I would ask--Where's that up tempo fast paced exciting football you promised? 

Why aren't our other QBs prepared to enter the games?

Why is our lines getting shoved around?

How come key players are getting injured in practice?

Of course not.  But this isn't just on the QB, Oregon played terribly in just about every single aspect.

Preparation does take a hit when injuries pile up. That being said, my original point to the first poster was that you can't discount the effect of injuries when it comes to the number the Oregon has suffered this season.  Case in point, we're starting Jordan Happle with a club on his arm because there's no one else.

Wow.

 

People are going to say the same thing they said after the Iowa State fiasco.  

 

Scheme won this game.  It wasn't muscle. What I mean by that is you don't put four men up against six or seven.  

 

You will not win that battle.

 

As for the offense, I've figured Brown out.  He will not go through his full progressions of he is feeling pressure to make a play.  

 

And when Utah started to blitz, Morehead wouldn't Max protect ( keep a TE and RB as blockers).  Oregon's WRs we're open downfield, all day.  You could see it on the replays.

 

Cristobal needs to look at tons of film.  That is the best way to learn the complete game of  football.
