I'm wondering if one of the main reasons Mora didn't come is because he didn't want to leave the UW in a couple of years for the NFL? He may feel that his NFL desire is not satisfied and if he so opts, he didn't want to leave us on the lurch after 3 to 5 years searching for another new coach. If so, then good for him.
Is the bloom off the rose for the Ducks? The loss to Stanford & the near loss to OSU showed some vulnerabilities. Have they become just another good team that teams relish picking off? I think they had an aura about them & it may be gone.
Could it be that Coach Pete wanted to prove to himself that he could thrive in a major conference and that's one of the main reasons he wanted the job?
