Oregon Ducks Open Season As 59 Point Favorite Over Nicholls

Chip Who?!?!? 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...

Can Mark Helfrich really replace Chip Kelly?

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...

Oregon Ducks Cheerleaders are Just Freakin' Hot

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 will score 70 points vs. Nicholls State

Starting hot 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...

How Far Can The Oregon Ducks Go?

From, a partner of Oregon Sports News 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.

Pac-12 Conference preview 2013: Oregon & Stanford battle for North Division

Ducks get love from SI Crystal Ball, but Stanford (?) still trendy pick for natty

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. Somehow the...

Despite Question Marks, The Oregon Ducks Will Still Be Prolific

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...
