Earlier this offseason you could’ve gotten Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota at 16/1 to win the Heisman. Now, at least for the time being, you can get him at valueless price of 8/5. Bovada has updated its Heisman odds, and Mariota is now a heavy favorite. Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is second, while A&M’s Johnny Manziel [...]

Oregon is off to a hot start, but are they a true national title contender? Photo: USA Today Sports We’ve seen this movie before. In each of the past three seasons, Oregon has jumped out to a blazing start in September, beating mediocre opponents to a pulp with ease. Every year, we fall in love with the Ducks for this, falling for the illusion that those 45-point (or more)...
EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota responds to media questions following Oregon's 55-16 win over California on Sept. 28, 2013 at Autzen Stadium.
ESPN's Heisman straw poll has Marcus Mariota ranked first with 66 points and 8 first first-place votes from their 16-member panel, comprised of ESPN writers and network analysts including Rece Davis, Ted Miller, and Mark Schlabach. Johnny Manziel is second in their poll with 58 points and 4 first-place votes, followed by Tajh Boyd with 51 and 3. Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater...
A strong start to his NFL career has quickly faded into a disappointing mess that is looking kind of scary. Michael Vick looked like he was ready to run Chip Kelly's offense, and looked great doing it against Washington.
But that was just one game. The team has been in shambles ever since. While back on the West Coast Chip Kelly's former team is still beating up lesser...
Ducks win another
In yesterday’s torrential downpour at Autzen Stadium, Byron Marshall fumbled two of his first four touches while filling in for the injured De’Anthony Thomas.
That didn’t stop him, though, from going on to have one of the best games of any player.
“Marshall entered the game with two touchdowns and tied that mark within the game’s first 10 minutes. He capped...
EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon wide receiver and punt returner Bralon Addison speaks with Erik Skopil of eDuck.com about his performance last week against California and the upcoming game with Colorado.
EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon quarterback Jeff Lockie speaks to Erik Skopil about the role of backing up Marcus Mariota and the competition with Jake Rodrigues in practice. Lockie and the rest of his teammates are preparing to meet Colorado this Saturday, Oct. 5th in Boulder.
Oregon star De’Anthony Thomas is questionable to play Saturday against Colorado after spraining his left ankle while returning the opening kickoff in last Saturday’s game against Cal. He left the game and did not return.
Fantasy Outlook: Thomas is working to get back on the field Saturday but if he isn’t able to go, Byron Marshall is a must start. Marshall carried the ball...
Everybody has a plan until you punch them in the mouth.
I don't expect Mark Helfrich to get a face tattoo anytime soon, but one thing he has done very well in his first few weeks on the job is instill an attitude of toughness in the 2013 team. It's the best indicator yet of what kind of coach he will be after a 4-0 start against the bottom half of the schedule.
EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon defensive lineman speaks to Erik Skopil of eDuck.com about the upcoming match up between Oregon and Colorado. Hart also talked about some of the past Duck defensive units he has been part of.
Each week DSH submits a mock Heisman Trophy ballot to the website College Football Zealots.
This is the Week 5 submission, with notes and background on the race:
Handicapping the Heisman Trophy race, there are several ways to look at the award.
Who's the most likely player to win in December? Who should the voters choose? Who has the best stats? Who is leading in the minds...
For the first time since the Oregon Ducks became a fixture in the upper echelons of college football, they have a front runner for the Heisman trophy. Sure, Joey Harrington came close, and De’Anthony Thomas, Dennis Dixon and LaMichael James all flirted with it, but Marcus Mariota is having the kind of year that has made him the man to beat. He is currently the Vegas favorite to...

With a deep, talented attack that includes Marcus Mariota, Oregon might not have a problem continuing its historic offensive start without its star running back.
The second-ranked Ducks could be missing leading rusher De'Anthony Thomas as they look to extend a nation-best 16-game road winning streak Saturday at Colorado.
Thomas has played a key role in a prolific Oregon offense...
EUGENE - Two years ago the Ducks made the trip to Boulder with star running back LaMichael James and starting quarterback Darron Thomas sidelined. In their absence, the team didn't miss a beat, beating Colorado 45-2.
