Look, they could have called a penalty on that play.  I would not have been mad after watching the replay.  But...

Would it really have mattered?  The backup came in the game and was not effective.  Then Marcus came back and threw just fine.

It's hard to dispute that JT does the Read-Option extremely well, as many times camera men were faked out this season.  Also you have to consider that JT was "stealing" yards from EzE, as JT had some 900+ rushing yards on the season.  Whereas Cardale's rushing yards only came on scrambles.

Cardale simply ran a different offense than JT.  I think Cardale ran the ball on Read-Option like 6-7 times total, in the last three games. JT ran the ball 6-7 times per game in his last 3 games, and double that sometimes.

The three seniors have been playing like crap since 12/31/14.  Shannon is shooting like 20% from the floor.  As the point guard he shouldn't shot at all, unless he has a cutting layup.  Amir is still Amir.  I can't believe that he started 79 games in row before last night.  Sam should be playing better, too.  But he is easily playing better than those two.

I think what stands out so much about Gene's bonus, is that he didn't do anything outside of his standard job.  You should earn a bonus based on either profit sharing, or performance.  All the other guys on that list performed to earn that bonus money.  Gene Smith just did his normal job.  Hire and evaluate coaches, give their annual reviews, and handle discipline.  Does the band leader deserve a bonus, too? 

It's like expecting a tip for making my Subway sandwich.  I'll give one if I fax in a large order and it's ready before I'm there, or if I gave some complicated order on multiple subs which slowed down the line or something.

With Shane Morris under center and no Devin Funchess?  8-5 would be an excellent season for them.

I have a friend who lives in Westerville, but spend the summer of 2012 in Copenhagen, Denmark.  He also visited Amsterdam and a few other places.  He showed me video of him getting an I-O back in both cities.  Pretty sweet, I must say.

I'm not sure how you define dominated. 

I think going 8/15 on third downs and 3/3 on fourth, while holding Oregon to 2/12 and 0/2 is dominant. I also think stopping them twice in the red zone is dominant, considering we were not holding any of the 26/26 drives this season -- think about that for a second. 

Only giving up 10 points on 4 turnovers, only 3 punts, and 4 drives over 75 yards.

OMG, this^^^  The one hoppers:

Their opening drive with that fumble bouncing right back to him. The Corey Smith fumble, the Jalin Smith bounce...even the Cardale fumbles were in Oregon's hands immediately. I'm sure the Ducks practice picking the ball up quickly.

Not sure I believe in Karma, but we got a few breaks like this, this season. I watched the Illinois game a couple weeks ago, we got two interceptions off of ricochets.

Comment 16 Jan 2015

Unlimited Touchdowns!  LOL, pretty much all of the smack-talking Ducks were saying this all week.

Comment 13 Jan 2015

Those guys were so freakin irrational in their live game thread. 

"OSU is getting all the breaks!" - After our first touchdown.  Despite the fact that Oregon recovered two fumbles on the first drive.  And everytime something went our way.  Four turnovers into the game and they were still saying we were getting all the breaks.

Are you freaking kidding me?!!! Oregon and their fans have no business calling anybody out for running up the score.  See the 2015 Rose Bowl, and every other Oregon football game in the last 5 years.

Comment 13 Jan 2015

Great Statistics!  I really appreciate your hard work this season.  Please continue doing these next year.

Has anyone noticed Devin Smith disappearing?  Haven't seen him since the third quarter.  Not in any of the pix or interviews, either.

Comment 07 Jan 2015

Yeah, I do.  It was great.  However there was a lot less to play with, indoors back then.  Now I can't take my eye off my kid outside because of the single, repeat sex offender who likes to walk his dog.  Of course some of the older kids in the neighborhood I trust about as much.
