Oregon Ducks’ Defense: Flying Under the Radar

  Oregon Ducks (@IamMSilvestre) It may be easy to focus on offense when a football team scores 66 points in a game, but for Oregon, the defense is spectacular, as well.  Defense may not be glamorous, but it is necessary in order to win.  So far this season, the Ducks have only allowed 9.0 points per game, helping the team to a perfect 3-0 record. Starting at the defensive line...

Week Three All-Video Game Numbers Team

After each week during the college football season I usually put together an “All-Video Game Numbers Team”. It’s a fantasy formatted team (QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, DST) compiled of FBS players that just put up ridiculous stats that week, whether they’re playing Alabama or Eastern Alabama A&M. Here’s the best of Week Three. QB Johnny Manziel (Sophomore, Texas...

Oregon Has Endless Possibilities On Offense

The Oregon Ducks are dangerous. The lopsided scores so far this season should be enough indication of that. But if I’m a defensive coordinator that has Oregon on the upcoming schedule, what I saw this weekend has me fretting even more. In addition to its speed, Oregon has more versatility than ever before. Quarterback Marcus Mariota has multiple speedy receivers to throw...

Mark Helfrich clarifies the Colt Lyerla "circumstances"

In his weekly Sunday teleconference with the local media, Mark Helfrich clarified his policy regarding disclosing player injury and illness information and why he replied "circumstances" when asked to explain Colt Lyerla's absence from Saturday's game. The Ducks have a team policy of not discussing player injuries or illnesses, the coach said. Bane in pain, and...

TE Mundt makes a splash for No. 2 Oregon

Freshman tight end Johnny Mundt had already impressed his Oregon coaches and teammates with his work ethic. Against Tennessee, he impressed everyone else, too. Mundt subbed for absent tight end Colt Lyerla against the Volunteers on Saturday and had five catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns. The Ducks defeated Tennessee 59-14 to remain No. 2 in the Associated Press poll. Mundt...

Marcus Mariota Heisman talk coming,…

Canzano: Marcus Mariota would have reduced Johnny Manziel to a mop-up man Oregon Ducks quarterback acts like he doesn’t want to win the Heisman, but he’s on the right path, isn’t he?

Oregon Cheerleaders offer sneak peak into upcoming cheer poster

The Oregon Ducks are off to a hot start on the field after dominating Tennessee 59-14 on Saturday and improving to 3-0 on the year. On the sideline and off the field, the Ducks have a huge advantage in regards to their Cheerleaders.  Take a look at the trailer video for this year’s poster, which is supposed to be released sometime this week. Keep it the good work, Ducks. [Busted Coverage]

Ducks overcome shaky start on the way to a decisive win

Tennessee dominated the game for the first six minutes. They forced a three and out from the Oregon offense, shut down the Ducks without any points after giving up a fumble, drove 80 yards in six plays for a 7-0 lead with 9:00 to play in the first quarter. The visitors looked poised and in command, and at that point, the Ducks looked flat and disorganized. A block in the back penalty...

Inside the highlight tape: A six pack of cool, refreshing big plays in a Frost-brewed win

Scott Frost, settling into his role as Oregon's offensive coordinator, pitched a masterful game yesterday. He worked the corners and blazed letter-high fastballs. He mixed in biting curves and a clever change of pace. He looked like a veteran pitcher in the heat of a pennant race, and the Ducks look ready for the September stretch drive on the eve of a bye week. September 28th...

Ducks Up 38-7 at the Half

Marcus Mariota led the electric offensive effort with 456 yards passing, while the defense used stifling pursuit to limit big plays, holding the Vols to a single touchdown in the first quarter until a late...

Johnny Mundt the kind of story that makes us love sports

He came from a small school in Northern California, the son of walnut ranchers and the oldest of three sons. Johnny Mundt grew up working on the farm, a story like Taylor Hart, who grew up working in his grandfather's lumber yard. He's dated the same girl for two and a half years. In high school, he was a 3.8 student. He played tight end and linebacker. The Crusaders ran...
