The problem is a good one to have "Too Many Heisman Candidates".  My guess is the votes will be split between Zeke and the QB.     So No Way do I bet my mortgage on one of our guys because I think some undeserving guy from another area of the country takes the award.   

You want me to bet the mortgage on a repeat NC now that is a different question.

Alas - we must wait for Boren sons.

But think 3 Borens - each with 3 sons.    In 2033 we could switch to a 3-4 defense have a full O-line of Borens and all four linebackers

Wait until next year.    Oregon will not get the love in the polls.

If anyone watched ESPN2 with game film when Urban was going for that last TD every coach said they would still go for that TD it is only fans who think if was bad form.     The coaches knew what Oregon could still do especially after the 70 yard 10 sec. TD

Let me start off by saying I hate the give every kid a trophy mentality and I think everybody should play hard on every play.    But it seems like this coach went full court press all game and was stealing the in-bound pass quite a bit for the score to be that high in high school.    While it may be their style why not teach your kids 1/2 court defense and passing once the game got out of hand.    At some point you will run into a team that will break your press and you need to play 1/2 court D.    You will also run into a team that will have good D and you will need the passing.    The score will still be out of hand but this was a teaching moment this coach missed in my opinion and it has nothing to do with running up the score or not.   He could still teach his kids to go all out  how to play a different style and not embarrassed the other team.

You NEVER pull your starting QB for a fumble or interception,    While you may have a quality back up their head may not be in the game.   

Your starters are also starting for a reason.    They have shown in practice they do the little things right.     They may make a mistake in the game but don't punish them.    It is likely in practice the back up shows more looseness with the ball than your starter.   It is one of the reasons the starter is the first guy on the field.

I think the offense a whole is better with 12 Gauge.  But who am I to call it?    All three can win.    My wish would be the following.

Braxton move to a different position since I think it is his best shot at the NFL.

12 Gauge starts this year wins another NC and leave as the #1 pick in the draft.

JT then starts 2 more years after 12 Gauge is gone.   Wins Back to Backs also

Gibson  or Burrow starts 2 years after JT  leaves.   Wins Back to Backs

Clark starts 3 years and goes Back to Back to Back.

Crap - I am out of QB's who I know will be on the roster  and could not give the ball to Collier

Letterman has really lost it from the last time I watched the show. Urban carried the segment.
