Dan Lanning's debut turns into 49-3 loss.
The reality is Oregon has been blown out 4 out of their last 5 games. Utah twice, Oklahoma (Oklahoma dominated the game) and now Georgia. Not just losses but blow outs. Reality check that they are not close to the top programs in the country which is interesting with several great recruiting classes. It appears there is something deeper than X’s and O’s
Those of us who lived through the Ducks of the 1970s and 80s know better than to despair. Oregon rose from nothing then and will again. Newer fans don’t understand what it was like to sit in an empty stadium watching the Oregons get pummeled week after week. Those days were hopeless. They are far far from it today. The Ducks will be back.
The gap between Oregon’s brand/all that comes with the Nike affiliation and the actual on field performance is big and seems to grow every year. We are in danger of becoming Tennessee (not that bad yet, but trending); overrated, overhyped, entitled, with players who think they’re great because of gear, facilities, media hype, and wins that happened ten years or more ago. The gap between OR and UGA shouldn’t be as big as it was today, not if the reputation and hype are accurate; the spread was -17.5, not -40.
I’ll answer your question John, Oregon is ordinary & Lanning is no Kelly! This looked like a Georgia scrimmage & the Ducks were the second & third stringers. Don’t give Oregon too much credit suggesting they could be the dragon next week. How about they start with showing up & getting off the bus?
Okay. It was a nasty loss. Let's not beat the boys with a stick. Let's encourage, have hope, and strive to do better, stay loyal, and be supportive fans. These are proving grounds. For growth and learning. And not just for the kids.
Not gonna lie. I really expected more from this defense.
Being humbled isn't a bad thing, overall. It stings and stays in your mind. But if the Ducks ever become the team they hope they can be, they'll use today as a ladder.
Last season I was horribly disappointed. I saw a team that lacked cohesion and gave up. I didnt see oregong give up. I saw Oregon get out played. Dan got out coached. And one thing the Georgia head coach said at the end of the first half Oregon hasn't punted it away, which was true they threw it away. I saw a lot of positives from this team. And I saw lot of negatives. I honestly thought I saw better play in this route than I did last season. Dan needs to grow as. Ahead coach this could help him. But your right Oregon isn't good enough to play at national championship caliber this year. I hope they wake up take there positives from this game shore up the negatives and rally. They have a tough season I could be ugly but I'm a duck fan I've seen uglier than this.
I surely didn't expect any other outcome to this game. We were 17 point underdogs and that is something not to be overcome..I am 100 percent a duck fan and always will be - win or lose.
Ducks had a few decent drives until they ended in mistakes...
The hype over Lannings defense is going to take a couple of games to
Georgia looked awesome and I felt a little bad for the Duck D getting hung out there.
The Duck offense looked, frankly, terrible.
Well, Chip Kelly had a really ugly debut game, and that worked out ok. Still, Ducks have been outscored 201-90 combined in their last 5 games. They have a long way to go to being a CFP team.
Our offense looked predictable and couldn’t run the ball. Our defense is really in need of an identity. They are not physical or hard hitting. And each and every coach needs to start looking at their position and figure out if they’re playing the right kids … 5 Star or 3 Star. A kid that wants to make plays. Change will be needed ASAP.
Maybe Oregon is no longer a loss in the Pac-12, but Arizona may no longer be a win.
Never should have even scheduled a “neutral site” game against Georgia in Atlanta…. Do u think Georgia would ever play a “neutral site” game against the Ducks in Seattle…?
Oregon should just stay in their own backyard. And occasionally do a Home and Home with a Big Ten or Big 12 school… i.e. Ohio State, Baylor and Oklahoma State.
Stay out of the Southeast!!!!
I didn't expect a win today, but I certainly wasn't expecting to get embarrassed, either. This is when leaders emerge....players and coaches. We'll soon see who gets up when knocked down and who doesn't.
