    I'm more poking fun at our Oregon fans that wanted him back. That felt like chasing ghosts to me. I never want to see Chip fail bc he put Oregon onto the biggest stage. I also hold no ill will to UCLA, just USC.

    Fair enough.

    The only good thing so far is knowing UCLA didn’t go the cheap route. I never thought we beat out anyone for chip and I said as much. Still holding out hope because what else can I do? Hopefully we hire a decent BB coach.

    I honestly think he'll turn it around. Sure he got crushed this recruiting cycle and it looks barren but I still think he has the chops to coach in the P12.

    Plus the track record of guys who go Major Program > NFL > college is really strong.

    The conference sucks and UCLA is in the right division. Maybe they can beat UW, Stanford or UO to win a CCG and get to the Rose and maybe that’s good enough. It’s also the ceiling.

    I’m not giving up (from afar) on Chip in Westwood, but I’m very happy oregon never remarried the man because the sex used to be fire.

    UCLA should at least still get to have their top 15 on paper status. Used to perennially ink top 15 classes before churning out bad teams. Now they're just a bad team with bad recruits like every other bad team, and the college football world is just a little less colorful for it

    Better record, better recruiting, and yet we’re all still pretty concerned about both our offense (Mario’s philosophy/Arroyo’s playcalling/Mastro’s Pistol) and our defense (Leavitt). Trying times for us.

    :points to head:

    No, but for real, someone is 100% going to take a flyer on him in the middle rounds. He’s a dickhead with a ton of warts, but he’s also 6’6” with what might be the strongest arm in the country.

    Disagree

    Comparable guys would be like Logan Thomas and driskel... they sucked in college but at least seemed to be good guys/willing to learn, improve etc

    Franks sucks and also seems like an uncoachable asshole. I think that’s too many strikes to take a flyer on him

    Neither one of these guys are comparable to Franks in any way other than size. I’m not sure you’ve ever watched Franks if you think those guys are good comparisons. And Driskel is in the league and started five games last year, so are you trying to make my point?

    Lol at thinking a guy who seems uncoachable being a reason why he wouldn’t be drafted. In any event, that’s not even true about Franks. He’s actually made considerable strides since he’s getting good coaching for the first time in his life.
