Re: Coaching Moves

There is no greater metaphor of looting than Coaching changes in college football, where there are contractual obligations in every case. Well of course unless it is the looting by the North in the South at the end of the War of Yankee Aggression. Well, maybe it is the Federal Government looting 97%...

Re: Coaching Moves

You know...I felt that I was mislead for decades...I listened to the recent news about the Santa Anna winds...and here I had thought that out west that they called the wind Mariah. Who can you trust if not the Kingston Trio? Never lose faith in the Kingston Trio like Tom Dooley did. Tess and her fa...

Re: Boise State v Oregon Vegas Bowl

You may be right about Leavitt, but the program is in disarray. Good thing the game is early because time would not be on Oregon's side. It is no revelation that while recruiting coaches lie, but Taggart took it to a new level. In what has been touted as one of the best recruiting classes in the nat...

Re: Coaching Moves

Mike Riley going back to Oregon State, where a former player of his Jonathan Smith is the new coach, is not a bad move. Riely was liked at OSU and seems to be a genuinely nice guy. I think he will be a great mentor for Smith and eventually will find a position with Oregon State in the Athletic Direc...

Boise State v Oregon Vegas Bowl

I think with the exiting of Taggart Oregon is going to struggle in this game. I think Boise's defense has been good and they will shut down passing and do all right with the runs. Not sure how motivated the assistants for Oregon are motivated right now as they all are probably looking for jobs. Tagg...

Re: Coaching Moves

When you take over a team that went 4-8 like Oregon went pre Taggart...and bring them to 7-5...it doesn't give you a lot of a chance to be exciting yet. Fans don't get excited about 7-5...particularly if just a few years back the team won 13 games. U of O fans want showmanship. Not so much at OSU w...

Re: Coaching Moves

This is pretty well the sentiments about Taggart. I tend to agree. And despite the article I read from Florida where they say he brought excitement to Oregon football, Oregonians do not believe that because he did not. http://www.oregonlive.com/sports/oregonian/john_canzano/index.ssf/2017/12/canzano...

Re: Coaching Moves

I think Jeff Tedford may be high on the list. Oregon law requires one minority candidate interview so Sumlin may be in the mix. Justin Wilcox from Cal may be there, too. I suspect they are going to not rush. They willl not choose someone that does not have strong ties to the Northwest. No more Carbo...

Re: Coaching Moves

It was quick and his comments for the past couple of weeks belie what happened. I don't think he was a good fit for Oregon. I suspect Oregon's new coach will be more flamboyant and put on a show. You have to win, but there are so many other issues at Oregon, all good, just takes a real showman.

Re: Top 10

Sometimes I think we all agree on most everything and just make up stuff to make sure we are all alive, I know I do, just to be able to don my Johnathan Edwards persona. (Although the Elmer Gantry thought is very appealing.)
