Plain and simple. Mark Helfrich is not a good Head Coach! He is consistently outcoached in big games and makes no in game adjustments. He has also not recruited anyone worth mentioning and lucked out this season by have VA transfer. Without that transfer the Ducks would have finished in last place in the PAC12 with maybe 3 wins.

Yeah, Marcus Mariota was a scrub.

I do agree he has been outcoached in some games, certainly some big games. It was brutal to be at the Alamo Bowl (not a big game) while yelling, "Run the f'n ball!" after VA went down and watch pass plays over and over- was that Helf or Lubick- not sure. Freeman was getting 5 yards a carry, so we could have run it the entire 2nd half and TCU would have run out of time. The lack of in-game adjustments worry me as well, but Frost was terrible at that too. And frankly, I never liked him as OC. Not sure how I feel about Lubick- another newbie- maybe tough to watch. Unless Prukop is that good or Jonsen or Wilson (love his highlights so far) steps in, it may be tough watching next year.

If we hire a Duck alum, I'll be pissed- so no Wilcox and no inexperienced Sirmon. I have have some doubts about Coach Helf and his ability to lead the Ducks, but he made a tough defensive change (which I agreed with- really wanted Todd Orlando in the first place) and I will give him this opportunity to learn from his mistake and hire an aggressive DC. If Oregon can find one, holy crap, all those naysayers just might stop talking.

Good to have another Duck here, though.

Oh, and just a heads up, on this board are a couple of Big 12 regulars, a few SEC regulars, a tOSU fan that keeps claiming they should be in the conversation this year, a random dude from a D-2 Colorado school who hates CU- Boulder (can anyone actually hate that school) that starts threads all about the SEC West being so dominant, a few newbs that have popped up cheering for Clemson and Bama- shocking, and a few Pac-12 guys (Zona and Utah). Oh, and a guy who keeps us updated on Colorado-Pueblo (passionate as all hell, though). I'm pretty sure most do not know who Helfrich is or even cares...but me.

To be accurate, it was actually Steve Greatwood who first spotted him when he was at St. Louis HS looking at a another player. He told Helfrich and Helfrich did most of the work after that. He told Chip to offer and they did so even before Marcus started at QB for his school. Chip was the head coach, but it is well known that Chip didn't actually recruit him.

Who do you want for DC?

Not a "newb" - I just have both of "my" teams playing each other for the NC, so I finally have something about which I can post.

Anyone who bothers to read a college football forum probably knows who Mark Helfrich is...
