    I'm just curious ...there are so many Ducks fans around here why not start using the Ducks forum on the site instead of the Blazers...so far only MMA, Blazers and Yankees get any traffic...you guys could jumpstart that forum and probably attract Duck fans who aren't even Blazer fans. Anybody searching for Ducks football sites would be steered there instead of hiding in a basketball forum...no big deal but I always wondered why that wasn't a popular forum here

    Herbert had a really poor collection of wide receivers & TE's to throw too. He had Darren Carrington as a freshman and a couple of seasons of Dillon Mitchell. The rest of his WR quality was the level of Brendan Schooler and Johnny Johnson. Or, he was throwing to tiny receivers like Charles Nelson and Jaylon Redd. And the only decent TE he had was Jacob Breeland, who missed half of Herbert's senior season.

    compounding that was that in Herbert's junior and season seasons, the Ducks actually led the nation in dropped passes

    also, other than 2 years of Royce Freeman, one of which he was hampered with an injury, Herbert had no elite RB's to absorb attention of the defenses

    contrast what Herbert had as support to what Mariotta had as support...

    RB's: Kenyon Barner, DeAnthony Thomas, Byron Marshall, Thomas Tyner, Royce Freeman

    WR's: Bralon Addison, Josh Huff, DeAnthony Thomas, Byron Marshall (switched from RB), Keanon Lowe, Devon Allen, Dwayne Stanford, Darren Carrington

    TE's: Colt Lyerla, Pharoh Brown

    Just a wealth of targets and supporting talent compared to Herbert. For all the talk about Cristobal's recruiting chops, there has been a real void in recruiting skill positions in the last couple of years of Helfrich, Taggart's one season, and Mario's first couple of years. At QB, RB, & WR. It has been mostly 3-star talent, or less. That will have an impact on offensive consistency

    Thibodeaux, Flowe, and Mathis...the 3 starting LB's from last week will all miss the game today. Can't defend well in college football without great LB play

    Ducks are only rushing 4 but they are getting no pressure at all on the Buckeye QB. They will have to mix in some blitzes or they will eventually get burned

    now, they are starting at their 1 year line....danger time

    It’s just nice to get that defense off the field for awhile. Need to get that time of possession evened out a little bit or in the 2nd half that offensive line will tear us apart

    is a 99 yard TD drive, on the road, against the #3 team in the land, good offense?

    Feels like it should be 7-6. Hopefully Buckeyes leave even more points off the board.
