Here is Sportswriter John Canzano's writeup on Oregon after their poor performance beating Ore St.; " If the Ducks don’t play much better, Utah will mummify them.
This wasn’t a performance that made anyone wonder if UO still belongs in that playoff discussion. It was evidence that they belong nowhere near it. And it raised reasonable doubt about Oregon’s ability to stay within a couple of scores against the Utes next Friday at Levi’s Stadium.
I can’t decide whether Herbert or offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo had the more unremarkable game. Herbert looked ordinary, completing 18 of 30 passes for 174 yards. He missed short on some open receivers. He overthrew some others. He was treated late in the game for a laceration on his throwing hand, but by then, he was mostly handing off..... Observing Arroyo calling plays — run, run, pass — is like watching a kid playing hide-and-seek tuck himself away in the same hiding spot every time.
We can see your shoes, coach. You’re behind the drapes....better yet, the King's new clothes are hard to see...in fact invisible.
So which had the more disappointing day, Herbert or Arroyo?.......both."
