    Re: Chip and recruiting

    He was pretty into this "men of Oregon" ethos that basically boiled down to only pursuing kids that would really buy into the program and its culture. Maybe this was just an excuse for losing good players to USC or not wanting to text 5-star kids about Playstation games. Maybe he was onto something considering how many teams that are stacked with talent seem to underperform year in and year out. I can't really say.

    Obviously there are exceptions, like De'Anthony Thomas

    Had no idea there was such disdain for Frost from the Oregon fan base.

    It's a wee bit alarming.

    On the flip side the Alabama fan base really loved the sharkfucker. Gave me a lil.bit of hope with him.

    Oregon with a healthy Herbert would be the favorites against UCF. Unfortunately Frost left us with no other options at QB.

    I can't remember which year it was, but he had a really bad run of red zone play calling. I'm not sure if you've seen the posts about throwing fades to 5'10 receivers, but that actually happened multiple times.

    I seem to recall an affinity for random Wildcat plays inside the 20 as well, but maybe that's on Helfrich.

    You won't find a single Oregon fan who wouldn't take Chip back in a heart beat. I'm not sure a single person on our private board would trade Frost for Taggart.

    It's not just fan takes (like mine) either, we have a lot of people who were close to the program over the past decade.

    Just because of the W/L’s with chip? I’m seeing a lot of the “well we’d be 5-1 if our QB wasn’t hurt” stuff about taggart plus he seems to be recruiting better than chip ever did so I️ figured u guys were pretty happy with what u have

    Chip had a culture at Oregon, he is a proven college X's and O's guy, etc. I think we're all excited about Taggart but there is still some unknown. We never had the HC Frost, but if there was a chance it would be like OC Frost, we want no part of that.

    According to 24/7, Frost was the Primary recruiter for 10 4*s at Oregon including Royce. Was also the primary for 3* Justin Herbert.

    But according to Oregon fans that’s not true because he’s the literal devil...

    Royce committed to Oregon because of Gary Campbell.

    They almost didn't even offer Herbert.

    The dude was a low 3* with no other big offers. I’m sure you guys were all so excited to add Herbert at the time. Looks like a pretty damn good job of evaluating by Frost to even offer him.
     
  21. rainman

    rainman Yeah

    Has Chip being rumored to be homosexual been discussed? In the SEC the coaches are all family men or purported to be, it's like a requirement. Certainly Finebaum would fan the flames of Chip's personal life if he were coaching any other school than Bamma. Saban is a known atheist and has his teams loaded with gays and Finebaum is able to keep that all secret.

    Not really disdain, he just had a lot more flaws and isn’t close to on the same playing field as Chip. To us (and anyone else with knowledge about football), it’s like someone saying the Browns are a much better run organization and the Patriots.

    Someone who is undefeated in November in FBS should never be compared to the Browns. This just makes dump look right. Don’t make dump look right.

    We are. Record with key injuries is still better than what Helfrich did last year, already. Add in that something like a dozen of true freshman are getting serious PT and anyone who expected more were not being realistic.

    As for recruiting, they’re currently top 5. Best Oregon has ever done in recruiting is 11th (under Chip) in enrolled rankings. We also have Crystal balls all over for guys like 5* Talanoa Hufanga, 5* Devon Williams, 5* Jalen Hall, top 50 stud Penei Sewell, etc. What Taggart and staff are doing in recruiting is extremely impressive and also shatters Frost’s cries about how difficult it is to recruit in Eugene.

    As for Herbert, there’s really little doubt that if he’s healthy, Ducks probably beat Wazzu and UCLA. A 7-2 record instead of a 5-4 would change national perception a lot.

    Those things are very innacurate. Helfrich was the primary for Herbert and Campbell was Royce. If I recall correctly, Frost hasn’t been the primary recruiter for any QBs that have had any meaningful PT in FBS. If so, who?

    Yeah it is concerning that Oregon hates Frost so much, and something I didn't realize. But it all sounds like a cannon of stories that have been rehearsed over and over again on a private board. With a lot of the stories sounding suspiciously biased or paranoid.
