    Life after Mariota and Adams was not kind to Helfrich.

    Terrible recruiting and worse staff decisions did him in, because he was never a CEO and he was never a recruiter. He was a reasonable OC and QB coach and should have stayed in that role at the college level.

    Let’s see Lanning after Nix
    Let’s see Deboer after Penix

    We’ve seen Mario after Herbert.

    We’ve seen Jimbo after Jameis.

    So many of these guys are one trick ponies when the right QB1 falls into their lap.

    Petersen and Bellotti had longer term success because they understood that was the one position that they had to get right, and for the most part they recruited and staffed well around that spot.

    Lanning I’m convinced outsources that position to the coordinator(Dillingham brought Nix) and that’s fine because Lanning is a defensive guy who wants to defer to someone like Dillingham or Stein to bring in the guy that’s going to work for their system.

    Mario wants total control over everything. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t.

    Agree, but there are some very good signs that we didn't see with Helfrich or Mario. Small sample size but the play of the backup QB this year had definitely improved. The defense has improved greatly this year. Lanning doesn't appear to have a problem utilizing the strengths of his offense. Mario losing to Stanford due almost entirely to his stubbornness and an unwillingness to exploit Oregon's team speed advantage over Stanford isn't a problem I've seen in Lanning. That loss has to been one of the worst Oregon losses since Helfrich. It may have a lot to do with Nix, but Lanning is two for two in O-coordinator hires.

    Agreed.

    Lanning needs to close in 2023. Next 3 weeks and then what he does with the QB position in 2024 will tell the story of the next ten years of his career, I feel.

    @SFGbob can you go back to Silent Cal, por favor?

    The new look creeps me out.

    It's a picture of haie being serviced by Retard Helmet. I think they look great.


    Silent Cal was a classy, dignified look. I just feel bad for the kid in this picture.

    If Lanning wins out and ends up losing another close one to UW I'm not going to freak out about it. Sometimes you get beat by a better team. I'm not saying UW is a better team at this point but if they beat us again in the Championship game you just have to tip your hat, the debate will be over.

    This place will have it's usual meltdown. If you guys beat us again, you should be ranked no lower than No. 2. You won't be but that's where I'd put you.

    We do have our standards here

    DeBoer has way exceeded expectations already. He's getting a raise regardless

    I think Lanning will too

    We'll be doing this again next year

    If Landon goes oh, and three against you – first two years, I will officially be concerned.

    Last year‘s loss was tougher to swallow than this years, and race is going to make fun of me, but I’m convinced that in both games, Oregon was the better team, and at the end of the day that’s on Lanning to make sure that you win when you’re better

    I was much more troubled by last year's loss than this year's loss. If we lose the Championship game 30 - 32, because our kicker misses a last second fg it's going to really suck but I'm not going to put that all on Lanning.

    If you were really head and shoulders better you would have been blowing us out by two touchdowns.

    You guys hired Sark. You were trying to be serious about football you just sucked at it

    Jimmy Lake was celebrated and cheered by you guys

    Disagree. Sark wasn't a hire by a school trying to be serious about football.
    You say that now. Sark was a hot commodity when you guys hired him and most of you thought you were lucky to get him. Like I said, you just sucked at it. Hiring Ty was the hire that showed you were more interested in virtue signaling than you were football.
    Most doogs did, but these guys were down on Sark within a couple months of the hire. I've been around a while
    The Sark hire was mostly hated at HHB. There was one notable HHB who celebrated it, his name has been omitted out of respect for the dead. But the majority of us(?) were staunchly against it.

    Lake, yeah most people here celebrated that shitshow.
    There was a pole on Lake, recently bumped, that showed his hiring was not universally beloved.

    I'll admit, I was at the LSU game and clapped for "a moral victory". Then we? upset USC. I was also young, fresh out of college, and had suffered through Owen as a student.

    Learned my lesson, I was nervous about the Lake hire and full LIPO mode. LIPO undefeated.

    Anyways, this is definitely not the place that's been "all in" on just about any hire. I was still a lurker but I remember there being question marks around Petermen's ability to transition to big boy football as well.

    I can see how you thought UW was actually the better team, and only a handful of plays away from proving that.

    See ya in Vegas.

    Agreed, many quickly realized they'd been sold a pig in a poke but that doesn't negate the fact most were very excited over his hire.


    Didn't the schism that ended up generating this site stem in part from the Sark loyalists and the people who were down on Sark? Or am I not recalling that clearly?
