Dan Lanning fires Oregon up with pregame speech before Colorado game

“They’re fighting for clicks, we’re fighting for wins.”

The No. 10 Oregon Ducks have jumped out to 21-0 lead on the No. 19 Colorado Buffaloes this afternoon as they’ve taken complete control in the first half. The Ducks are playing inspired football early and some of that energy could be owed to the pregame speech by head coach Dan Lanning.

I think it’s safe to say that Lanning doesn’t think much of the massive media hysteria surrounding Colorado. This speech reminds you that he’s a disciple of Kirby Smart, who regularly fires up Georgia with pregame/halftime speeches just like this one. The line “they’re fighting for clicks, we’re fighting for wins” specifically gets to the Buffaloes leaning all the way into the hype before playing a single down in the Pac-12.

And as I’m writing this, Oregon has scored another touchdown to go up 28-0 in the first half. Sheesh, this is already ugly.
