#1 seed, end up 13th? How were other teams beating them? What did Georgia do that had UO's number? How do you win 15-5 over Cal at Regionals and lose to them 15-17 at Nationals? Injuries? Mental? Inertia?

many factors led to their demise, but also teams they played in the regular season played much better at nationals.

Outside of Georgia, we beat every team from the East coast we played, including Cornell, UNC, Florida, Pitt, Harvard, and Brown. Good point though Gerics. We lost to West coast teams in the 2 games that mattered. We just played bad all weekend. We had no flow and couldn't execute. Props to West coast teams Cal and San Diego for playing really well.

---an admittedly uneducated point with no effort to research your
season's schedule!
....could have been any west coast team....and i'd be dropping that
goofy bias.
best of luck with your continued efforts ego....

Yeah, they played west coast teams all year... they also played the east coast teams mentioned by eli earlier, as well as wisco and cut twice from the central, and colorado twice as well. They played the other three #1 seeds 5 times before nationals. ego played a pretty ridiculous schedule, full of games against the toughest teams in every region.

i watched ego at nats for a couple games, and noticed a few things that might have led to their losses. in the cal game, it seemed like there were more breaks than o scores. Their D line played huge, but their O line did not. I also noticed their callahan missing from action for most of the games I saw... I heard rumors of a day 1 injury? He accepted the callahan barefoot, with a ton of tape around one of his ankles.

after that game, it seemed like they didn't care. this team was looking for a championship. finishing 9th or 13th probably didn't matter, if they had a #1 or bust mentality. They looked totally apathetic against Iowa.

Iono, just a neutral spectator's take on it.

I watched almost all of both the UCSD game and the Cal game, having been pulling for Ego since early in the season. But in the UCSD game there were almost no points scored by the D line (if any at all until 16-16) but Oregon's defenders were getting Ds and forcing turns but just couldn't seem to hold on to it for whatever reason.
But in that cal game, it seemed like a couple of the O line guys (especially you Eli Janin, am i not mistaken here?) were playing more D points so after they got the turn, they could get the point. But i was just spectating, so hard for me to know their game plan going into each game. regardless ego was one of the best teams to watch the whole weekend and sucks it didn't pan out, a bunch of us were hoping for a sound defeat of florida by them in the semis.

The first 32 goals of this game were all scored in the same endzone. The 33rd point was the first break for the entire game, at least according to the two observers that worked the game.

I only got to see Oregon play at nationals, but from what I saw, Oregon was a very talented team. I think one explanation for Ego's poor performance was that their offense relied on difficult/low percentage throws. Rather than getting the disc off the line and looking to swing to gain yards, Ego would throw a cross-field hammer. They also hucked it to receivers in double and sometimes triple coverage, rather than finding the poached receivers underneath. That kind of offense is near impossible to stop when the throws are on, but Ego's handlers were having a difficult time making those shots all weekend. Eli Friedman did not seem to be the type of explosive receiver I was expecting and I suspect he was dealing with some sort of injury. Another factor was that the team seemed to collapse instead of regrouping when players got frustrated.
