Keeerrrttt1’s FishDuck.com Weekly Video Log – Episode #25

Greetings Fish Friends!

Every week I create video blogs (vlogs) to update all you fine folk on all things FishDuck, a free-form discussion of current events about Oregon Ducks sports and all that’s new with FishDuck.com, with the occasional off-topics or rants.  It’s a little off-the-cuff, perhaps slightly pretentious, somewhat rambling, and hopefully entertaining…so kick back, relax, drink up, and let’s talk a little Duck sports.

The opinions expressed in these videos are strictly my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of all involved with FishDuck.com.

    I noticed the LaMike screen pass drop at the time, and noted what a potentially huge drop it could have been. Luckily it didn’t cost us the game, like the worst dropped screen would-have-been-a-touchdown pass of the year – Rashaun Vaughn’s drop of a sure touchdown against USC, that if he catches the ducks win that game without ever trotting out Maldanado.

    And yes, if you were really watching, even on tv, it was easy to see Boyett flopping around like a fish out of water with about a comparable level of currently functioning brain cells after that monster hit.  Of course, if he just would have covered Toon, the ducks would have been fine because I’m not sure Toon could have made it more than about 10 yards downfield after his obvious injury on the play!…

      Good eyes while watching the game DonealDuck, and thanks for watching!

      The cameras were close enough in that you could see some of the defenders as the screen pass developed, but seeing the entire field it was easy to recognize that every defender had flowed to the opposite side and LMJ had three blockers out in front of him to pick off anyone flowing back his way.  It was a clear path to the endzone, and up until the ending I heard constant grumbling in the stands about what-if this or that, but the LMJ drop was always being mentioned.  It was there…the following snap there was a false start, and Ducks couldn’t convert the 3rd & 9 and had to punt, at the time Wiscy was running all over Oregon so it could have been a MAJOR momentum swing in the game.

      As for Boyett, one of his flops to the ground the cameras picked up immediately after the hit, but after he runs out of the shot he tripped and fell to the ground again and looked like he wasn’t all there.  That’s why you can see John Neal on the sideline yelling at the ref to call a timeout and then points at Boyett sprawled out on the ground off-camera, and you can also see Michael Clay signaling for a timeout too when he hears Coach Neal shouting for a timeout…

      Fortunately the refs didn’t see it and the game ended in Oregon’s favor, but Boyett was pretty out of it and Neal and Clay were both screaming for a timeout before Wilson tried to spike it.

        Thanks for your comment and further insight Kurt.  Can you imagine if, after Wiscy is out of time-outs, WE would have called it for them and they would have scored?!…  Ah, the twists and turns..  Is there no wonder we are college football and Duck fans?!!!..  :-)

    I watched the RB on TV and it was easy to see that LMJ screen open up. No, you couldn’t see the secondary but you could see that the front 7 was out of position. I have no idea why the broadcast didn’t pick up on it. Maybe they are so used to Oregon scoring that they figured it wouldn’t even matter. Mustardburger’s tone is just off sometime when he calls Duck games. That long Barner TD or the DAT 60 yard sweep – he didn’t really get all that excited on the call. He had similar ho-hum calls in the Stanfurd game.

    Maybe it’s just me……

      I agree…but Charles and I have agreed to temper our ire towards the broadcasters, as we’re convinced that we know more than 99% of the broadcasters out there and at a certain point piling on them seems a little sad and unnecessary.

      But I will say that Brent could probably move on from “You are looking live…” at the start of every broadcast.  Seeing as how it’s obviously a live broadcast, I think it’s a tad redundant there Mr. Musberger.

      Oh well.  Good eyes on the out-of-position defense, the cameras kinda showed it, but in the stands seeing full field view it was obvious.  That play was all the talk for the remainder of the first half, I was really surprised when I got around to watching it on TV how they so casually shrugged it off like it was no big deal…it was a touchdown all the way.

      Anyway, thanks for watching and visiting FishDuck.com!
