In case you haven't seen Oregon's new facilties yet, allow star Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota to give you, and ESPN's Brock Huard, a tour.
Get ready for Marcus 2.0.
That's what Oregon coach Mark Helfrich looks to see from his sophomore quarterback, Marcus Mariota, as the No. 3 Ducks embark on the new season. It all starts Saturday when Oregon host Nicholls.
Last season at this point, Mariota was a redshirt freshman who had just been crowned Oregon's starter - beating out Bryan Bennett after a fall camp competition...
The Oregon Ducks may have lost head coach Chip Kelly and star running back Kenjon Barner to the NFL but they aren’t expected to lose a beat according to the lines. The Ducks open up at -59 against Nicholls on Saturday.
There are many reason why the Ducks number should very well be higher than that. For starters, the Ducks return 7 players on their dynamic offense...
How do you replace a genius?
Everybody's weighing in on this, and the national talking heads are climbing over each other to declare that this thorny question is the reason Oregon regresses this year.
Opponents will begin to adjust and figure out the no-huddle, up-tempo Oregon spread, the meme goes, and Mark Helfrich won't have Chip Kelly's requisite brilliance to have...
I have to wonder just a little bit if there is a room or an adjacent complex in Oregon's swanky new football complex for the cheerleaders. Otherwise I can't figure out how the Ducks manage to get so many smoking cheerleaders year in and year out.
Apparently the ladies were hanging out at the lake recently and Busted Coverage got a hold of some pics of theses babes...
The Oregon Ducks are set to open their season at home against the Nicholls State Colonels, and the kindest way to describe this matchup is that it’s going to be a complete blowout.
The Colonels finished their 2012 campaign with a single win, which is the same amount of games the Ducks lost. This one’s going to be ugly, and it’s going to be beautiful for fans at...
We've have lost our bearings here at Gamedayr after finding out that the Oregon Ducks cheerleading squad brought their bikinis with them on their 2013 Triangle Lake retreat.
EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon wide receiver and kick return specialist Keanon Lowe spoke to eDuck.com's Erik Skopil after practice as the Ducks prepare for Nicholls State University.

Since it is the cusp of a new season and bloggers, pundits and fans are indulging in rampant, ecstatic speculation about their favorite college teams, it seemed appropriate that this column indulge in a little speculation, as well.
Suppose Oregon, in this 2013 campaign, ends up with a dream season, running undefeated through...
Oregon gave a set of jerseys to a nearby National Guard squad during the Ducks' 2013 Spring Game, and the military men sported them while doing what they do best.
The Pac-12 is a competitive conference with a variety of quality teams. Stanford is projected to win the Pac-12, but Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona State, and USC are all contenders. The Ducks were the pick by the media to win the conference this season. Stanford could come close to an undefeated season, but with away games at Oregon State and USC along with a home games versus...
National writers are inexplicably mesmerized by The Tree.
Scan the preseason magazines and college football websites, and everywhere there is inordinate love for the hyped-up throwbacks to the Woody Hayes era of the sport, the Stanford Cardinal, who lost two games last year and return a team bereft of offensive stars, relying heavily on a good but not great defense.
Let’s face it: the Oregon Ducks are loaded with talent. They return two of the top players in the country in Marcus Mariota and De’ Anthony Thomas. As a redshirt freshman in 2012, Mariota was one of the most prolific passers in the country, throwing for over 2,600 yards and 32 touchdowns. He completed an incredible 68.5 percent of his throws and had a gaudy 163.2 quarterback...
The Oregon Ducks are a 59-point favorite in their game tomorrow against the Nicholls Colonels, a 1:00 p.m. Pacific kickoff in Autzen Stadium. It's televised nationally on Fox Sports 1.
The outcome isn't much in doubt, but educated fans will be watching closely in several key areas: execution, substitution, penalties and turnovers.
Nicholls isn't the challenge here....
