The Duck Stops Here:
Ducks lead 28-10 but have kept the Wahoos close with stupid penalties and poor blocking by the offensive line. They've been stuffed twice on fourth down, once at the UVa. three just before the half.
Oregon has 6 penalties for 80 yards, and two of them, a taunting foul on De'Anthony Thomas, a late hit on Ricky Heimuli, were ticky-tack. A couple of the other were plain stupid, and costly, late hit fouls that are a loss of discipline.
The offensive line is getting pushed back on inside running plays. Ducks have gotten yards in chunks, but are facing too many 2nd and longs, 3rd and longs after negative plays.
