Conferences perception: Oregon win over Auburn
How much does this move the needle for the PAC 12?

The PAC is so far in the dumps that climbing out will take multiple events - one being USC hiring a competent coach. Also, UW needs to win a big game.

My concern is Auburn is so neurotic that the storyline will be Malzhan’s hotseat.

Obviously some of this would come down to how Oregon wins.

As for the PAC12, they just need some teams to step up and win big games.

It won’t. Auburn either comes out amazingly hot and rolls Oregon, or it’s a classic Auburn down season and a win for Oregon ultimately means nothing for the PAC-12.

It would depend on Auburn's season.

Perception would go from dumpster fire. To office trash can fire.

Right. However, I also think it matters how the play is on the field.

For instance, in the scenario Oregon asserts themselves in the trenches. It helps no matter what Auburn does since they have a great front seven.

If Oregon pulls one out “against the run of play” to borrow a soccer term than it’s Auburn doing neurotic things.

This... If Oregon wins, it will be probably perceived as a quality win early in the season, but is likely a worse signal for what Auburn's year could be... Oregon is likely the 4th or 5th best team on their schedule... so a convincing win for Oregon might not bode well unless they come together quickly.

If by the end of the season, Auburn hasn't turned a corner, then the Oregon win would likely get discounted (not to the same degree, but see: Alabama FSU season opener when FSU's season tanked - and this would hopefully have nothing to do with losing a starting QB for the season).

Auburn is the big ? mark this season. I think AU will win, despite Oregon's projection to be quite good this year.

You're right about 'SC...we need a new HC, a new AD, and a few other things to get back where we customarily belong. Right now, it's the pits.

In all honesty, as folks have said, it depends on how Auburn does if Oregon wins.

If Auburn does well the rest of the season it is a great win for the Ducks and big boost to the PAC 12. If Auburn has one of their WTF seasons where they crash and burn despite having a ton of talent it will get over looked.

It isn't fair to Oregon but that is playing Auburn for you.

Forrest Gump should have gone to Auburn instead of Alabama. They truly are the box of chocolate where you never know what you are going to get.

I don’t have a good feeling one way or the other on the game. I really love the defense. The offense needs to be as good as the sum of its parts.

It would help the perception of the Pac, especially if you look strong in the trenches. The Pac desperately needs Oregon and UW to carry the torch. I do think UW has a chance to be very good, if Eason can live up to the hype.

I have it on good authority that Eason isn’t what that fan base is expecting. I am not saying he can’t get there but I am saying it’s not being shown in practice.

re: Conferences perception: Oregon win over Auburn
Would an UO win over AU be good for the Pac-12? Sure.

Let's look at some other high profile Pac-12 OOC games:
AZ @ TX Tech
- A win here won't really mean anything since TTU is breaking in a new coach.
UCLA @ Oklahoma
- In the unlikely event UCLA wins, it would really depend on how UCLA won this. If Hurts shits the bed there isn't going to be any talk about the Pac-12's prowess.
Stanford @ Northwestern
- Irrelevant. The odds makers have NW at a 6.5 win team.
ASU @ Michigan St
- Could be an impressive win for the Pac-12 depending on how the rest of Michigan St.'s season goes.
USC @ ND
- Depends on what UGA does against ND
Stanford vs. ND
- Samsies
WSU @ Houston
- While I hope I can watch this game, the outcome isn't going to change any perceptions about the Pac-12 or AAC.
Stanford @ UCF
- A Stanford win would be good for the Pac-12. A loss is a huge black eye.

The UO/AU game is the probably the most influential OOC game for the Pac-12's perception this year. Unfortunately for Oregon, with the rest of Auburn's schedule an UO win could be dismissed as a win against a middling SEC school unless Auburn goes on one of those "Jimmy Sexton's going to get his man paid" runs.

Wait...wouldn't that be way worse? Why would you relocate the fire to inside the office?
