Another great article. Tells you a lot about DL and what and how he is doing. Ty Thompson gave a great take on what he sees. " He's a natural leader". That high praise is very telling.


Also he and his team are calm and confident about the 1st game. Bring on the dawgs. They don't have a clue what's about to hit them.

Even if this dude finds out head coach is above his ability, which I highly doubt is the case, I am a fan of Lanning and the type of man he is authenticaly showing everyone he is.


I will root a little harder for this years Duck team. I will openly root for Lanning. It will be fun to watch him grow as the season progresses. 


It was difficult last year when I found myself napping halfway through the third. Hoping this years team shows the enthusiasm, humility and drive for success we see in their leadership.  Go Ducks!

In listening to the various player interviews, from Media Day. Often they were asked about the difference between this year and last.  


A renewed "love" for the game, the closeness of the team, Coach Dan's football acumen AND emotional IQ are recurrent themes.  I think our last coach was reasonably good at the culture stuff, but I think Coach Dan may even be an upgrade in that area....to my pleasant surprise.
