  1. Horribly tragic and heartbreaking. I pray for his family. The University of Oregon has had its fair share of tragedies with its athletes these last many decades. ๐Ÿ˜ช
  2. Whooosh! You totally missed the point..... and the irony.......But, O.K.?
  3. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/alabama-coach-nick-saban-weighs-in-on-conference-realignment-concerns-over-competitive-balance/ And yet, today we have none other than Nick Saban complaining about lack of "competitive balance" in college football. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ Does anyone really take this guy seriously anymore????!!
  4. I think UCLA will be happy to be a basketball school going forward. I can see them making serious hay in the BIG. Big 10 teams are always way overrated.
  5. Anything that keeps all 10 remaining conference members together is the best option......for now. Still think this is the beginning of the end for college football. At least for me it is.
  6. https://goducks.com/news/2022/7/5/o-heroes-courts-for-kids-reflection.aspx Sorry to stray from current events.......but this brought a huge smile to my face. ๐Ÿ™‚ GOOOOOOOO DUCKS!!
  7. Ah, yes. Every black cloud has a silver lining! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  8. It's looking more and more like Oregon will NOT join the Big 10. It's the first tiny sliver of happiness I've felt since this all broke. ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. Any and all of it makes me sick. I hope and pray this all works out for Oregon........somehow.
  10. College football has always thrived because of regional interest. I don't see that changing. I think the networks will make their Billions but destroy college football in the process. Destroying regional conferences will be a disaster. USC and UCLA will regret their decision. Prevailing wisdom is that money is all that matters. When it comes to the college sports fan, this is false. I hope Oregon doesn't join the Big10. Oregon must maintain it's connection to the West. Be bold Oregon. Don't follow the lemmings. Create your own empire.
  11. After stewing on this for a few days (still furious) I've only come to one definite conclusion: Under no circumstances whatsoever do I think Oregon should join the Big 10. F THE BIG 10 and F USC and UCLA!!! After supposedly forming an "alliance" and getting assurances that no conferences would poach each others teams, and all Pac-12 teams assuring the commish that they were 100% solid with the Pac-12, USC, UCLA and the Big 10 stab us in the back??!! If Oregon begs and pleads on bended knee to join that treacherous conference and follow our treasonous "brothers" to that conference, I will forever lose respect for my beloved University of Oregon. My first choice is to somehow save the Pac-12. Second choice is to join SEC. Third choice is form a "super-league" of our own with a combination of Pac12, Big12 and ACC. SCREW THE BIG 10 AND EVERYTHING IT STANDS FOR! I think this could really backfire for the LA schools if there are no other West Coast Big 10 members to play. Enjoy 5 road games in the Eastern Time zones. Enjoy the snow, too. you bastards. And just think of the traveling for Basketball, Baseball, Softball etc. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. Great comments. I really can't add much as I'm in too much shock and rage to have a sensical opinion. I'm getting disillusioned with college sports in a hurry. The Ducks, the Pac-12 and college sports in general have been such an important and joyous part of my life since the 70's. I get too emotional, but USC and UCLA freaking stabbed us in the back and betrayed us. I won't be getting over this anytime soon. It's painful. What should Oregon do next? I haven't got a clue. I despise every option I've heard today. Bill Walton must be inconsolable. ๐Ÿ˜ก
  13. Obviously. And yes, we shall see. Only my opinion, but I'm sky-high on this guy and his staff. I think he will be an outstanding coach. I'm not naive enough to think there won't be bumps in the road, but I've just got a good feeling about Lanning. He could be special. Time to prove it
  14. Scout team QB's primary roll is to scout future opponents quarterbacks, learn plays and tendencies of the opponent, and the play the roll of opposing quarterback during practice to help our defense prepare. You wouldn't want any QB who even has the chance of playing in a real game... wasting their time in practice spending nearly no time studying/practicing OUR playbook. Scout team QB is usually the #4 or #5 guy who has definite skills, but is a super long shot to ever play in a game.
