He has great height. He would make a great edge rusher. Just needs to put a little more beef on.

Let's hope he realizes the benefit of having a defensive-minded HC is a good thing for his development in the college ranks.  Crossing my fingers!

Mario has been recruiting Moss for over a year, so I’m pretty sure he will go there.

He has seen Mario s character up close, so whatever.

Have these recruits watched the Oregon's games this year and were they paying attention?  Why would anyone want to follow that subpar, train wreck of a coach, MC to Miami is beyond me?  

 

Unless Big Joe is planning to join MC in Miami and Cyrus Moss has built a strong relationship with Big Joe, I can't see the appeal.  Plus, Dan Lanning like others have pointed out, is a defensive guru. 

 

I would be more concerned with SC swiping him, even though Miami has been gaining steam.

While KT was exciting to watch, you can't help but feel that he underperformed, given that his goal was to get 13 sacks this season.  I believe Bama's Will Anderson Jr. recorded the most sacks with 17.5 sacks.


Injury did play a part, and KT isn't entirely to blame for falling short of his goal.  Many times, this season, he was either being double teamed, or the opposing team designed the run or play away from him.  The D-line as a whole was undermanned, in most cases, rushing only three or four.  It was up to the coaches to make adjustments and put him in a position to make a play, which they failed to do. 

 

How many times this season, I saw KT drop back into coverage.  By doing so, DeRuyter just neutralized our best pass rusher, weapon on defense, and perhaps, our best chance at winning the game.  We needed more pressure on the QB, not less. 

 

When the Ducks gave the opposing QBs more time to survey the field, they were able to pick our defense apart.  It was a tall order to ask KT or any DE to cover a RB or receiver in full stride and in space.  Rather than playing to his strengths, DeRuyter made KT look average during those plays, which I hated to watch.

 

I realize that DeRuyter was the DC and not Mario, but a smarter HC would have intervened and recognized that it was the least effective way to utilize KT's talents.  Mario is definitely not a smart, X's and O's type of coach, which I learned early on.

 

So if this is type of leadership or lack thereof that Cyrus Moss wants to play for, then by all means.  He better pray that Miami's DC is the real deal.  If not, he will be another underperforming, top DE under Mario's watch. 

 

Despite all that, KT, on his own merits and under the tutelage of Big Joe, may still become the #1 overall draft pick.

Whoa!!! Hold your horses my friend. KT was double teamed all year and still created havoc. Alabama has NFL talent clear across the line. You don't double team any player on Alabama's line or you are going to get crushed. So, that's not a fair comparison in the least. 

 

As far as Mr. Moss and his leanings, I wish all the kids the best. I hope he comes to Oregon. These kids want to go to the NFL, thats the first and foremost. Relationships that have been budding for over a year are a factor. But, schools and their academic program is a factor. Facilities are a factor.

 

Oregon has the feeling of a Rocket ship fueling on the launch pad, and all these kids know it. They all know who is playing in the Championship game come Monday. They are all very aware of who the Coaching staff is becoming at Oregon.

 

That vibration they feel in the North West is Oregon starting its engines for a powerful run. I hope Cyrus sees this enough to make the commitment to Oregon.

H'mm wonder if Lupoi our new DC has phoned Mr Moss up? I would imagine that to be the case and when Mario was here we weren't really sure if Moss was going to come here at all. I mean why all of a sudden would he want to go clear across the country now unless it was Bama. Heck I think I'd pick them or even SC before I went to Miami. Man they got some of the ugliest uni's on the planet.

I did like Big Joe but man he was not a great recruiter and never brought on 1 five star D Lineman. That's what's going to win you championships and that's why Tosh was hired as he can recruit and coach these kids up. I was hoping Mario would ask Holati to come be the Ducks D Line coach. Anyways do love Joe and we could have done better and now we have a way better staff on paper.

I love and want the kid to but if you think Moss will make the same kind of impact as Thib's his first year I just don't see it. He needs to add at least 15 to 20 lbs of muscle to play the same position and be more suited to be an OLB or rush LB.

 

He's not gonna be able to hold the edge on run plays either way you want to look at it. GO Ducks Just Do It. I'll also add one more tidbit to the just do it. Be Quiet and let your play on the field do the talking.

 

Honestly I don't see the need for players to have interviews and talk as if they got this only to get blown out against Utah.

Regardless of where he makes a verbal commitment, my guess is once Lanning is past the championship game, once he has more time, he will continue to push Moss if he wants him.  I'm expecting a big flurry of recruiting effort for players that the new staff wants, whether they've verbally already committed or not.

When my daughter and son were juniors and seniors in HS I wasn't certain of what they would do. 40 years further along I have even less idea of what high school kids will do?

 

I know it is about the Jimmies and the Joes, but nevertheless I do find multi millionaire grown men seducing HS kids to be a bit disturbing.

Recruiting is a confidence game, and the more time in the saddle, the more confident the recruit becomes. Miami has that in spades. Moss could be that rare high schooler (like DAT) who thinks outside the box, but I wouldn’t count on it.

It would have been great to get him, at least he didn't go to USC.

If it makes anyone feel better ... This is probably the only year that Cristobal and Miami really dip out west for recruiting purposes. 

 

The Miami boosters who got him his job want him to own the state for Florida and the south east has plenty of talent close at hand. 

 

This year MC is pulling on recruits he has a relationship with already which just so happen to be out our way. 

 

Sucks on the short term but long term we will probably hear his name less and less.... Unless of course Lanning and co. dig right at the heart of Florida recruiting wise... Which is possible but on the whole Oregon needs to own the west coast and only pick up a few recruits from Florida.

I'll be curious to see if Lanning keeps working on him with several weeks available after Mondays game , where he can put in a full time effort.  It will also be interesting to see if he stays that far from home through his college career.
