    Total meltdown in Duck Dynasty land right now. Helfrich has been deemed responsible for their two game losing streak (Oregon had the longest streak in the nation of not losing two in a row). If they have to start over again with a new coach, I don't see that going well. It's becoming a worse job every day, and a little harder to recruit there every year. The bandwagon exodus has been fast.

    Nebraska RIP 2001
    Oregon RIP 2016

    What say you?

    Would Uncle Phil throw $10m/yr at Tom Herman?

    They've never been willing to pay for coaches until after they've established themselves for their 2nd contract. Would be a major change to M.O.

    No we didn't murder them. We just beat them. Whoever hired Helfrich as the HC murdered them

    I think he'd throw $20m/yr at Satan if he thought it would get him his national championship before he dies.

    Which I could see happening, as the Oregon brand starts freefalling out of national prominence.

    Helfrich is in a position like Skippy, riding out the momentum that Kelly built until he's gone.

    No, not even close. Oregon has too much money to be irrelevant for long. They will have seasons like this, like all programs do, but I would doubt it is very long lived.

    Phil's 80. Won't be much longer unless there's some kind of perpetual endowment. Even then, their momentum won't stay the same. You had a good run, Ducks, and soooo close to that coveted natty.....

    15 years ago nobody would have scheduled CU and Nebraska back to back if they could avoid it. Oregon earned their current status. It's nice to see everything coming together this season.

    It was a fashion murder.
    No matter the threads, defeat is a terrible look.

    Everyone in Buff Galaxy will remember exactly where we were at that moment when Duck football fashion when from "Hot, hot, hot" to "so five minutes ago."

    No. But we may have murdered Helfrich's HC career.

    They committed suicide in an act of self defense.

    (Edit: May have sounded like we didn't have a significant 'hand' in it -- the Buffs provided the murder weapon of outstanding Defense and Offense)

    If the score was, oh, 62-36 for example, then yes, we may have just murdered duckU. However, needing an INT in the endzone to prevent the go-ahead score, while glorious, indicates that the game was in doubt until the very end. We may have put a ding or two in Uncle Phil's armor, but it will take a beatdown from UW and/or OSU to put the nail in the coffin.

    Had to look "masada" up and its significance: "the Masada Syndrome is a state in which members of a group hold a central belief that the rest of the world has highly negative behavioral intentions towards the group." I'll pile on and say I have a very negative attitude toward the very duckery uniforms -- WTF is up with the orange (webbed) feet -- and the whole Uncle Phil machine

    Also a biblical story about the Jews defending Masada committed ritual suicide, rather than being captured by the Romans.

    Nope, not a Biblical story. It occurred afterwards.

    Oregon is on the downside of a great run. They still are loaded with athletes but are learning that you still have to coach them.

    Whoever chose this Disney outfits for them last night sure didn't help either

    What that article doesn't mention is that in that Cotton Bowl beatdown on New Years Day in '96, Skippy piled it on late in the game with a trick play as I recall ... fake punt or something like that. Bellotti didn't like that too much, and frankly I couldn't blame him. It was totally unnecessary and only served to humiliate and enrage the Ducks and their fans.

    It also was the beginning of my disillusionment with Slick Rick, which of course was validated by his hasty exit to the U-Dub job in anticipation of NCAA sanctions to eventually come in 2002 for his myriad recruiting violations and which justly earned him a "show cause" order and an embargo of his off-campus recruiting for a year at U-Dub. I'm fairly sure it was the first time ever that the NCAA sanctioned a coach at one university for violations committed at his former school.

    I've heard that the fake punt was when Phil Knight made the decision to rescue Duck football through personal investment.

    This may be the game they look back on as the start of a major decline. However, there are a whole lot of teams out there ready to get some revenge and give Oregon some losses (in some cases, heavy losses). Oregon won't be shown any mercy. Time will show whether we initiated it and demoralized them beyond repair (we may well have), but it's only a matter of time before someone goes 62-36 on them. However, we can take pride in having laid the groundwork. Washington, Furd or Utah may put a hurting on them this season.

    Did we murder Oregon football? No ... but I'm pretty sure we put a considerable load of buckshot in its ass.

    And any inference of a sexual metaphor from that by members here is totes on them. :p

    I didn't think about this, but you're right. Lots of Oregon "we needed to win big for BCS rankings" blowouts the past few years that lots of coaches and teams are itching to pay them back for. If it gets to that point, there won't be a lot of guys who will pull off the dogs. Coaches may forget what they had for breakfast, but they seldom forget someone running the score up on them.
