This is a recurring narrative from DDY that the 2000 and 2016 teams were the perfect blend of recruits from vastly different regimes. This got me thinking about this year’s Oregon team. Many of the leaders on their team were the last holdovers from the Helfrich era (Herbert, Dye, Throckmorton, Lemieux, etc) with some emerging stars from the WT/MC era (Penei, Kayvon, Holland, etc). Next year their roster will be majority WT/MC guys and it’ll be interesting to see how the team performs.
Will there be a “Goldilocks” year between CP and Lake or is it a seamless transition?
