Is it possible to have a discussion about football without being homers or delusional? I’m open to discuss football if you can actually be open minded and realistic.
Cristobal has been the most vocal pac-12 coach about playing, so doubt he truly didn’t want to play. That’s my opinion, based on what’s been reported.
I didn’t feel great about Oregon’s chances against OSU, given all the new starters. On paper, Oregon’s oline got bigger and stronger. Qb is a negative until he proves it in game. I do feel Oregon is the favorite in the conference, as the defense should see no regress from last season, will most likely be better.
But, like I said, I’m open to having a true open conversation.
Heading into the season I gave Oregon a slight advantage over UW due to home field and their confidence. (They’ve been excellent in close games the past 2 years).
With the player defections, my guess is Oregon’s D will be better than UW. But Sewell is such a huge loss that the player defections overall hurt Oregon more.
There might be 4-5 teams that legitimately could win the league in this bizarre season.
And now Jevon Holland. Advantage Washington. Lets fucking GO!
