BEST OF MAXIM
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 [...]
Tony James, the speedy all-purpose back from Gainesville, Florida, committed to Oregon on Sunday morning, according to ESPN recruiting analyst Derek Tyson and Justin Hopkins of Duck Territory.
James has to really be sold on the Ducks. He committed after making his official visit the night of some of the worst weather in the school's football history a steady downpour of miserable...
Marcus Mariota threw for two touchdowns and ran for another and No. 2 Oregon defeated California 55-16 on Saturday night in the rain-drenched Pac-12 opener for both teams.
Bralon Addison returned two punts for touchdowns and Byron Marshall ran for 130 yards and two more scores for the Ducks (4-0, 1-0).
The game was played as a strong storm swept across the Pacific Northwest, cutting...
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...
With De'Anthony Thomas injured on the opening kickoff, Bralon Addison, Byron Marshall, Thomas Tyner and the Oregon defense sparked a 55-10 win that was short on artistry but long on guts and heart.
The defense applied relentless pressure and swarming pursuit, striking for 5 turnovers. Addison tied a school record with two punt returns for touchdowns. Marshall ran 19 times for...
With one of the worst nights of weather for an Oregon game since the 1983 Toilet Bowl, the Ducks achieved a much different outcome than they did 30 years ago.
Among the critical differences between then and now are talent, quickness, desire and athleticism: on this treacherous Saturday there were 10 fumbles in the slippery conditions, and the Ducks recovered 8 of them, four of Cal...
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.
EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon corner back Ifo Ekpre-Olomu answers media questions following Oregon's 55-16 win over California on Sept. 28, 2013 at Autzen Stadium.
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.
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...
Marcus Mariota says Thomas Tyner improves every day in practice and he's going to be a special player.
Aliotti gives grudging praise to his defense, noting they only allowed one explosion play a pass for 33 yards ("on an all-out blitz, a mistake by the coordinator"). Cal's longest run was for 13 yards, and the Ducks held them, with aid from the miserable weather...
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.
In-game notes taken while working the game for Duck Sports Authority:
Wogan blasts one 8 yards deep, touchback. That's going to be a huge weapon when they face dangerous returners.
Bears first throw underneath to Harper for 6 yards. They'll be looking to dink and dunk the Ducks all night, but very difficult to do that successfully.
1-6 start for Mariota passing, again...
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.
