Recommended Posts

One GOOD outcome here: there are a LOT of people NATION-WIDE excited about Oregon's coach selection progress  . . . advertising is always a positive thing.

Ducks get NCAA Best Defensive Coach. "Offense Sells Tickets, Defenses Win Championships"   Paul "Bear" Bryant

 

Eugene becomes Georgia West because he also brings the Georgia Coaching Process and Mentality.    A marvelous pick

Who knows if this is true or not but if it is it would be awesome. Keeping teams under twenty alone would win the the Pac 12. Throw in a top notch O Coordinator and the Ducks would be regular playoff contenders.

 

Thought I saw on a FishDuck post that Lanning had been interviewed for Oregon HC, could have gotten exaggerated by the Urinal Constitution

Keep in mind this is the newspaper that accused Richard Jewell to be the Olympics bomber . . . 

Have heard it referred to as the Atlanta Urinal Constitution

UCLA fans right now... "dammit" 😄

 

I'll have to do a bit of research cause i'm not familiar with him at all but I do like the idea of hiring someone young and apparently rising rapidly.

Another stepping stone job?

This would be my big concern. No connection, no ties to anything in the PNW, or the entire west coast for that matter. 

 

He will be looking for a head coach gig in the SEC within a few years.

 

I like the idea on paper, but the thought of continuing on this carousel just makes me nauseous.

 

This is what I don't get. Seems as many fans are vehemently against Wilcox a local guy and a Duck, but they are willing to jump on some complete strangers band wagon in an instant. A guy with no head coaching experience....no track record at all.

I only have one word for this selection: WHO?

He is the #1 NCAA Defense Coach by stats.   He will bring Georgia Coaching System and Mentality to Eugene.  A tremendous pick by AD Mullens and Phil. Brilliant!

Have you seen the d line guys they can get at Georgia? I think it's more about that then it is about the coach, but what do I know.

I have no idea what reports to believe, but if the Ducks don't hire this guy that I never heard about before 5 minutes ago, I'm going to be devastated!!

Maybe but just because someone hasn't lived on the west coast before doesn't mean they wouldn't love it here.

With the ass drubbing they took from Bama maybe this could be a possibility for this guy. Don’t know much about him but if you hold the sec teams to less than 1 score a game average, except Bama, I’ll take that. Bring on offensive guru from the west coast that can recruit and I’ll take that even more.

 

Now we are dreaming.🤔🤔

I'm originally from NY, but fell in love with the west. I have been living out west since I retired from the military in 1983. So yes! Some easterners do switch.

He is from misery. How hard can it be to impress somebody from a place like that?

 

 

I with cartm, I will be devastated if this guy isn't the one!

He’s had some Pac12 exposure having spent year on ASU’s staff in 2012.

I don't know much about this guy. I did watch full Georgia games a few times this year. Other than the bama game they might have been the best college defense I had ever watched. Maybe we can finally retire the "bend don't break".  I wonder if Noah Sewell will approve.

Regardless whether this is poor reporting (and I suspect it isn't because the ACJ ain't no scrub as the song goes) - and I honestly cannot blame anyone for posting a local, major paper versus the ESPNs who seem almost purpose driven to troll the fan base with the laziest of lazy reporting - I like the thinking if this is how Mullens is approaching the search.

 

Six reasons for six years of (relative) instability in the program's coaching position:

(1) Lanning has ties to the SEC which means he knows how the award winning sausage gets made. 

(2) He works for Kirby Smart who is admittedly a dogged recruiter. 

(3) Smart has aggressively fought to keep him which, considering the man's defensive pedigree, suggests Lanning probably has a bit more than a clue as to what he is doing. 

(4) He isn't rooted in any particular locale so won't be pining for the (insert your own adjective here) Florida lifestyle (or midwest, etc.). 

(5) He doesn't read as a mercenary (his comment on stability and longevity as high order bits). 

(6) He clearly wants his next job to be as a HC and incubated within a, frankly, really good coaching staff and well run program.

 

When the people you are (rumored to be) targeting are not being pursued by any other soul in this D1 football world, that might be a signal that you view talent quite different from the crowd.  Whether that different perspective makes you 'not a sheep' with some preternatual ability to see potential and skill nobody else can, or an ad agency's favorite demographic, the impulse buyer watching late night TV,  that is not for me to say.  Lord knows I have no corner on the elite coaching talent evaluation market.
