    I don't. 🤷‍♂️

    AFC west is going to be a bloodbath. I am not betting on the Raiders with Carr. It will be Chargers or Chiefs, and i like the Chargers' momentum.

    It was time to blow it up. The seahawks have been sinking slowly for years. It was not going to come together again with Russ' giant contract. He was the best QB we have ever had, but I wish him well and hope he has success with the Broncos. I am looking forward to the rebuild. Personally, i would have shit--canned Pete and Schneider as well, making me a sort of seahawk anarchist i suppose. Bring the chaos and then rebuild. Besides, we have Jacob Eason, so everybody relax.

    3 huskies were on this Rams team: Greg Gaines, Taylor Rapp, and OL Coleman Shelton. I believe Gaines and Rapp started and played a significant number of snaps.
  6. I wonder if Jones and Dye were aware that they were landing at the same program.
  7. Seems like a very good pickup for AZ. De Laura was my favorite Pac12 QB this past season. He looked really good shredding the huskies.

    Charger defense kind of sucks. And, i think their play calling leaves something to be desired.

    I dunno. I want to like Huntley, but he looks like a major project. By the way, Herbert balled out again tonight. How many 4th downs did he convert in the 4th quarter? Amazing. Would have liked to see him in the playoffs.
  10. Joey Harrington on the identity of Oregon football ...
  11. If all of the other teams have "coffee cups," is Tosh still a stand out recruiter? I guess we'll find out.
  12. https://www.oregonlive.com/sports/john_canzano/2021/12/canzano-ex-oregon-ducks-greats-wrote-letter-to-ad-rob-mullens-worried-about-programs-lost-identity.html Pretty interesting article about the letter 14 prominent former duck players wrote to Mullens advocating for a hire "within the Oregon family," in part because of concern about the program losing its identity.
  13. Its seems the Oregon AD did in fact offer Wilcox, given that three different journalists have confirmed it on Twitter (Canzano, Fentress and Kyle Bonagura), as well Geoff Schwartz. This is pretty fascinating. I would love to know what Wilcox's reservations were. I can imagine that he may not have appreciated being the fall-back plan for the ducks, or that a majority of the fans were against his hire. Wilcox would have provided a nice link to duck history before the program became what it is now, IMO. Taking a wider view, I think 3 of the 4 Pac12 hires are unconventional and chart new ground: 1) I don't believe USC has poached a sitting P5 coach before; 2) I don't believe UW has hired a G5 head coach since Don James; and 3) I don't believe Oregon has hired an outside coordinator with no head coaching experience before. All three programs are experimenting with a different approach. Only WSU has stayed within their comfort zone by elevating a coordinator.
  14. Congrats Utes! What a night for Utah. Whittingham earned every bit of this. Cool chapter for the conference. Now go on and win the Rose Bowl!
  15. I hope the two teams put on a show that never fully materialized in Santa Clara.

    Congrats Cougs. That was an ass kicking. Your team looked sharper than anything i recall from the Leach era. DeLaura is very accurate, and playing at a high level. You might well be the best team in the north.
  17. I agree, and assume that USC and LSU will be picking from that group. I hope so anyway, because if those coaches don't move that means USC and LSU will be looking at candidates UW is hoping to get (Stoops, DeBoer).
  18. Bruce Feldman wrote an article in the Athletic saying that Dave Aranda at Baylor is becoming a hot name in USC's search, and that UW might also be interested. Aranda is from Southern California and is a big Dodger fan.
  19. Hmm. He would need to explain the COVID impact on his program really well in the interview, and also outline a plan for his offense with potential OCs, and for recruiting. Positives are that the knows the conference very well, has had consistently good defenses, and presents well. If UW strikes out on some top names, I could see Wilcox being a candidate and i would be open to it.
  20. I would prefer a coach with head coaching experience, and not another first time head coach (Sark, Lake). I have read a few lists and am intrigued by the following candidates: Kalen DeBoer at Fresno State: seems like a very promising candidate that will get offers for a bigger job this cycle, so there will be competition although not sure the top programs (USC, LSU) are looking at him. His record at NAIA Sioux Falls was 67-3. His current offense looks really good. Bob Stoops. His record is obviously excellent (190-48, with a national championship). He's been out of the game for a while, but he must have great connections for assistant coaches. Does he have the fire for the brave new world of college football with NIL and transfer portal? Tom Herman. Don't know enough about him. Billy Napier. Just learning about him, but seems on par with DeBoer. Justin Wilcox. I like him (has a certain Tom Osborne vibe), and he could potentially be good with a top level OC. His record at Cal is really not good though. Is UW so different from Cal that we could expect hugely different results? I think that is wishful thinking. Kalani Sitaki. He would be very solid, but i doubt he would leave BYU. Jeff Choate / Joe Moorhead. Intriguing, but need to learn more. I really don't know what i'm talking about. See above.
  21. he gone https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/pac12/2021/11/14/washington-huskies-fire-football-coach-jimmy-lake/8618826002/ I had high hopes for Jimmy, and am bummed it went south so fast. I don't think there was a realistic way for UW to keep him. I hope he lands on his feet and has a successful coaching career. ✌️
  22. noted hot take merchant, with surprising record of accuracy, shares coaching change hot take
  23. Those should be two very watchable games, in any event, if that is how it plays out. 🍿

    mildly amusing story about the UW v. UO rivalry. https://dannyoneil.substack.com/p/dan-to-dan-coverage-oneil-x-oneil?token=eyJ1c2VyX2lkIjo0MTI3NzczNywicG9zdF9pZCI6NDM1MjAyNjcsIl8iOiJpV3hUYyIsImlhdCI6MTYzNjA0MzAxMSwiZXhwIjoxNjM2MDQ2NjExLCJpc3MiOiJwdWItMTAyMjI2Iiwic3ViIjoicG9zdC1yZWFjdGlvbiJ9.rcUYbrF9_KgCTRKy33cu0nKeCI7MpHDJ5YuhTchJjs0
