    there was this from behind the On3 paywall:

    Talk about cherry picking…

    That’s not what he said at all.

    In fact he said that “every kid in the country wanted to come to Oregon; everybody was interested.”

    He said it was *hard* to recruit there because it wasn’t in prime recruiting ground, like Florida, Georgia, Texas or SoCal where it’s easier for those schools because kids *most* top kids don’t wanna leave the state.

    He even implied that Oregon is close enough to prime territory that they could get enough kids to run their offense when he said, “can’t run the Oregon offense at Wisconsin, not enough kids that run well enough”.

    That would also be complete horseshit because they were constantly pulling in some of the top classes while he was there with elite recruits like DAT, Seastrunk, Canton, Taj, Blackmon, Freeman, Armstead and others. Not to mention the amount of “almosts”.

    But Mario definitely was better; and everyone knows some of the main knocks on Chip and Helfrich was the lack of recruiting prowess on those staffs. And if u know anything about Oregon football you’ve heard the stories about Scott frost and his recruiting habits.

    Oregon doesn’t have much to worry about right now. I said months ago that Oregon was on the outside looking in.

    I don't know why it is you come in so hot to every discussion...

    I said, Frost said: it was nearly impossible to recruit elite kids to Oregon. You said, Frost said: elite kids wanted to come to Oregon, but didn't because of one reason or another

    there's almost no difference in those interpretations except semantics. Bottom line is Frost said, in one way or another, it was nearly impossible to recruit elite kids to Oregon

    Talking about winning percentage. Not amount of games.

    it's possible they somehow weighted it for football's fewer games

    my guess is they totaled all the wins and losses in both sports and derived the winning percentage

    Dana Altman has been the HC at Oregon since 2010 and his winning percentage is .706 (300-125). In the same time frame the Duck football team is 117-40 (.745). Total wins and losses for both is 417-165 (.717)

    Why?
    Why not just take the teams winning percentage the way it stands? Basketball is basketball and football is football?

    It doesn’t say anything about weighing anything.
    If your teams winning percentage in football is .750 and your basketball team is also .750 you have a combined average of .750.
    Seems pretty simple to me.
    If one is .400 and the other is .600 you have a combined.500.
    Your probably right though. Stats dudes hate things being that easy.
