A few thoughts on Oregon-Washington
Sat Oct 12, 2013 3:42 pm
  • Marcus Mariota had all day to throw all game long. Those conditions won't be repeated against Alabama or Stanford, much less the NFL. With that caveat in place, I was really impressed by his accuracy all day long. In fact, it might be the best game long display of accuracy I've seen by any QB ever. Both deep and intermediate, his passes were consistently on a dime, and that turned potential incompletions into long first downs and big plays into even bigger plays for TDs. I do think he needs a cushy landing spot in the NFL, but like Kaepernick, he's got an elite combination of speed, zip, and accuracy. In fact, I think his combination of those traits exceeds even Papaki, though Mariota does have a weight deficit in the comparison, which will probably impact his usage at the next level.

    I lost count of how many blown coverages UW had. Then again, Mariota is a handful on a typical day, and today he was pretty much perfect.

    I just don't understand how UW can look so fast and tackle so well on defense, but look so slow and so bad at tackling on special teams.

    Oregon was perfect in the redzone. Every red zone trip resulted in a touchdown. Even their one field goal was on a drive that didn't breach the 20. The Huskies have a very good defense, but it's not a disruptive defense like Stanford. It's a bend but don't break type defense a bit like the Seahawks defense in 2012. And today, that defense broke, and broke, and broke, and broke. Most of that is on Mariota for being outstanding, part of that is on blown coverages, part of that is on a questionable officiating decision on the first score of the game, and part of that is on a complete inability to get off the field on 3rd and 4th downs.

    The Sankey fumble was the game's turning point. After that fumble, Oregon's offense scored on all but two possesions, and those two possesions were both "kneel down" type situations at the ends of each half. Five touchdowns and a FG in six drives if you exclude those kneel down situations from then on.

    Crazy as it sounds, I think UW actually played well, but they had a few tough breaks go against them, Oregon didn't, and Mariota was playing his absolute best. Oregon was the better team going in, and they played the better game on top of that. I do think the score perfectly represents the performances, though I do think that UW got a bit unlucky in the red zone. So many 3rd/4th and goals turned into TDs for Oregon. Even for Oregon, against a very good defense, that's not a sustainable figure. Not saying Oregon didn't earn it, they did, but UW has to bat .500 in those situations, even against a top offense. ESPECIALLY when they force so many 3rd and goals. Their performance on 3rd/4th and goal in this game must have set a school record for ineptitude.

    As a Huskies fan, I don't mind losing this game, but I am disappointed it wasn't closer at the end. I do think if both teams play a "typical" game, it's closer than this. Hell, UW played very poorly against Oregon a couple years ago and the final score was closer than this. I was also a little disappointed to see the "quit" in the team at the end. Understandable as it may be, I want to see a team fight. When Shelton got that personal foul at the end, I wasn't even complaining, because at least Shelton showed some emotion out there in the final minutes.

    I hope Oregon finally wins a championship. Quite frankly, I'd feel terrible for Ducks fans if they had a team this good this long without getting a natty.

  • Best (most accurate) game Mariota's played all season, by a long shot.

    Huskies need to upgrade there o'line and d'line, imo. Huskies D kind of reminded me of last years Seahawks. Really good, flying to the ball, hitting hard, but no pass rush which really hurt them. I'm surprised Wilcox didn't try to blitz a little bit more. I don't know if it would have worked or not, but had to do something to get Mariota out of his comfort zone.

    77% completion rate to KP's 59%

    Felt like Keith was holding on to the ball too long and he had some guys open he waited too long on. Although I have a really bad angle from the goal line on the east end zone.

  • With the possible exception of running back (note the "possible", Duck fans), Oregon has better players than Washington at every position on the field. Until Washington starts winning some recruiting battles that's not going to change and the Ducks will continue to dominate the Huskies on the field.

    Until we play some defense and maybe get a kenny wheaton play of our own. Ducks are elite though, no question.

    Hope they stumble soon.

  • From a (bummed) Husky fan, Mariota is legit. He couldn't not his receivers perfectly in stride.

    Part of the reason they went hurry up was the oline just isn't that great.

  • I think going in without the rivalry hype most knew Oregon had a better overall team. Saying that...... I think the Huskies gave them all they wanted the first half, the turnovers and getting behind took it's toll emotionally I think. Give Oregon credit for going to a hostile conference stadium and coming out with a win. I will say the Huskies did not really embarrass themselves as much as ran out of bulletts in the gun. The Dawgs have come a long way and hopefully will just continue to improve as a overall team.

  • One note from the Oregon perspective, I think we saw the difference between Chip Kelly and Mark Helfrich today. Chip was much more stubborn with the run game and would force the run to try and set up the pass. Helfrich seems much more comfortable airing the ball out and setting up the run by using the pass.

  • Like I said in the gameday thread, I don't want him fired, I want him to be better with in game adjustments. UW also doesn't have the talent to be predictable with the offensive play calling and beat the #2 team in the nation. While I fully expected UW to lose pretty much in the manor they did, you have to USE ALL OF YOUR WEAPONS and OFTEN to beat a team of the zeros caliber. ASJ and Williams were not targeted enough and enough early on IMHO.

    Unless Phil decides to sell the team, I don't see us out-recruiting them.

    A big turning point in this ^&%$fest, along with the Sankey fumble, was the no call on the horsecaller. That would have gave us a 1st and goal. HTF does this not get called? A TD instead of the FG would have got us within a score and the fans would have went all 12 on Mariota the next series, the D would have been jolted and who knows after that?

    I am not taking anything away from UO's fantastic win. They left little doubt who the better team was. But a call here, a play there and anything can happen. That's why they're celebrating in Utah tonight. And after starting 8-0, my teams are 0-3 since. GO HAWKS (Gawd dammit).

    Husky fans really need to get over the Uncle Phil thing and just realize we're a damn good, very well coached football team.

    Btw, those were pretty sweet uni's and helmets that uncle phil gave UW as well.

  • JSea....if I thought it ended with snazzy unis...I wouldn't give a damn about Phil's uh, donations to the program (and I thought our unis sucked ass, btw). It's the influence Knight has on recruits. You can't tell me in all honesty the owner of Nike, the guy that pay's billions out in shoe deals, can't sway the recruit that believes he is ultimately in line for a sweet shoe deal of his own. Plus...how do we know what's going on behind the scenes? Knight has MANY friends out there. Many of them hang on the walls of impressionable recruits IE:

    "Hey Devron, I hear you're considering both UO and UW, you can't go wrong with UO, my friend".

    Devron: "I do like both schools...how did you get my number..who is this anyway"?

    Caller: " This is your new buddy, Lebron, man...had I went to college, I sure would have went to UO...let me give you my personal number in case you'd like to give me a holla some time".

    Have you spoken to them off the record and got the real scoop?

    What game did you watch? The refs called the game so lopsided towards UW, it wasn't even funny. If Lowe makes the easy catch on the first drive, UW is down 14-0 and heads hanging before you can say bow down. If your aunt had nuts, she would be your uncle.

    Unless Phil decides to sell the team, I don't see us out-recruiting them.

    A big turning point in this ^&%$fest, along with the Sankey fumble, was the no call on the horsecaller. That would have gave us a 1st and goal. HTF does this not get called? A TD instead of the FG would have got us within a score and the fans would have went all 12 on Mariota the next series, the D would have been jolted and who knows after that?

    I am not taking anything away from UO's fantastic win. They left little doubt who the better team was. But a call here, a play there and anything can happen. That's why they're celebrating in Utah tonight. And after starting 8-0, my teams are 0-3 since. GO HAWKS (Gawd dammit).


    What game did you watch? The refs called the game so lopsided towards UW, it wasn't even funny. If Lowe makes the easy catch on the first drive, UW is down 14-0 and heads hanging before you can say bow down. If your aunt had nuts, she would be your uncle.


    I was talking about turning points in the game. Your example, the dropped pass was also a turning point in the game. Are you grasping this yet? If your aunt had nuts she'd still be your half-sister.

    Wow, same story for 10 years, never can give props and just say Oregon is superior. Oh no, a missed horse collar was the turning point, a play that only happened because our dl destroyed your OL on the play. A missed horse collar isn't a turning point, far from it. But hey name calling fits you.

  • Oregon called an outstanding game offensively. The playcalling was perfectly layered, everything was setup, and perfectly executed, UW's head was spinning in the second half. I was rooting for UW, but as a fan of football, the playcalling was outstanding.

    Mariota is a stud, money throws all day. Had one questionable decision on a throw but UW was slow reacting and he still fired it in there for a completion.

    UW didn't play terrible, I thought they played well, but they were going against a faster, more talented machine. I thought athleticism at the linebacker position really hurt UW. It hurt them on the buck sweeps Oregon was running and it hurt them in handling Mariota. It is no use spying a guy when the spy can't stick with the qb.

    I didn't get a lot of UW's playcalling as far as pass plays. They called a lot of deep routes, a lot of seam routes, which against Oregon's secondary just wasn't open. The short stuff, especially the slants, were open every time they went to it. Oregon gave them the short stuff and UW didn't take it. I think sometimes Sark gets caught up in the shootout nature of the game and tried to force the ball downfield.

    Bishop Sankey is a stud, but we knew that already. Another solid game, sans the fumble from him.

    I knew going in 92 for Oregon was a beast, but he manhandled UW's center in the second half. Oregon did a great job getting pressure on Price in the second half, by the 4th quarter they had changed his eye level and I think he missed some guys downfield.

    The remodeled stadium is beautiful, the crowd was jacked up for a UW crowd. Beautiful weather, beautiful setting, beautiful campus, compelling game for three quarters, didn't end the way I wanted to, but it was a lot of fun. UW is better, they have the way to go, but the gap is as shorter than its been with Oregon in years.

    I think Oregon will end up playing in the title game, will they win? Who knows. But that is a great team.

  • Yeah, I was there, about seven rows from the back wall on the fifty yardline. Lots of Ducks fans up there. The crowd doesn't even compare, it was loud, and a great atmosphere, but Seahawks games are at a level of insanity that is unmatched.

    Your selective reading and indignation is embarrassing. Did you not read where he wrote "I am not taking anything away from UO's fantastic win. They left little doubt who the better team was."???

    To deny that the missed horse collar (I'm not sure I've ever seen a more egregiously missed call, the head ref was 5 yards away staring directly at the play) was a potential turning point is just arguing for the sake of arguing. Nobody is claiming the refs decided the game, nobody is claiming this was the only potential turning point. Stop the trolling, it ruins discussion by the adults in the room.

    I would second this, and I've been to Autzen, which can be an incredible atmosphere, but neither of them can hold a candle to Seahawks stadium when it's roaring. It's just a completely different feeling.

  • Here's what I want to know. I heard a lot about Washington's "speed" on the outside at the start of the season but I have yet to see a single Husky running past a defensive back down the field. Is the Huskies' speed overrated?

    John Ross has legitimate world class speed, but he ended up being surpassed by Jaydon Mickens in the role of the primary small receiver.

    You also must have missed Bishop Sankey's 60 yard run at the beginning of the 3rd quarter.

    In no way does the UW have the across the board elite level speed that Oregon currently possesses (the ESPN Magazine article about the entire teams work with the Oregon spring coach was interesting) but the speed is there to challenge anyone else in the Pac12.

  • I'd consider it more quickness than long speed. A lot of big players are more a combination of speed and execution, you can't just run by people typically, especially today, with how deep Oregon's safeties were playing.

    If (when?) Washington finishes the season with 7 wins again I'll be tempted to agree with this sentiment. But not before then.

    Totally agree. It would have been a huge swing. The ref was right behind Price when it happened. No way he missed it, just didn't throw the flag.

    Lopsided towards UW? I wouldn't say that. I thought the refereeing was typical Pac12 (low) quality with a couple of the more important calls going Oregon's way. However, I don't think there were any game changing calls, either.

    As folks in KC are going to find out today.



    There's a blogger for Yahoo sports calling for UO to surpass Alabama and be ranked number 1. Won't happen because of the SEC bias in this country but he makes a compelling argument here:
