OREGON HAS ROLLED through its early season schedule like a steamroller, winning by an average of 35 points. Opponents have mostly been less than daunting and all four games have been at Autzen Stadium -- but the initial results seem to rule out 2012 being a Chip Kelly rebuilding year. On top of that, Duck fans are expected to come in droves to Seattle when Oregon takes on Wazzu Saturday night.

Tom Emerson, a Portland Oregon videographer, uploaded a short documentary on YouTube about the Oregon Duck Cheerleaders. There are two main reasons you should consider watching it.
The first reason appeals to the “PBS” side of your brain that is interested in short documentary films.
The second reason appeals to the side of your brain that just enjoys watching hot college cheerleaders.
Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti has surely become accustomed in recent years to all the attention falling on the Ducks' speedy spread offense. So when the spotlight falls on Oregon's defense, Aliotti's pride is apparent.
The defense starred last weekend when No. 2 Oregon shut out Arizona 49-0. Six times the Ducks prevented the Wildcats from scoring from the...
Finally, a documentary on the Oregon cheerleaders has been made and uploaded to YouTube. Sure, it’s only 6:23 (minutes) long, but the story can be told via a couple of dance routines (in 720p) that you’ll be showing the boys at work. How this Tom Emerson character got this kind of access to the girls is beyond our comprehension. Seriously, he nearly gets kicked in the head....
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By ANNE M. PETERSON AP Sports Writer Tight end Colt Lyerla (LYE-er-la) can be excused for momentary lapses because he's still getting used to playing a role in Oregon's backfield.

De’Anthony Thomas is a hybrid wide receiver/running back for the Oregon Ducks who can run faster than Forrest Gump. Michael K. Williams plays Omar Little in the Wire, and now plays mobster Chalky White in Boardwalk Empire, and is overall a complete HBO boss. They both have the droopy eyes, the chin strap/goatee combo, and the cornrows. And on top of the look they’re both extremely...
Offensive masterminds Chip Kelly of Oregon and Mike Leach of Washington State are set to meet for the first time.
It's Kelly's defense, however, that is gaining in notoriety after its best performance of the year.
The second-ranked Ducks posted their first conference shutout in nine seasons last weekend, and their next challenge is a Saturday night visit to Seattle'...
Anybody who watched the Oregon Ducks play the Arizona Wildcats Saturday night at Autzen Stadium knew that the Ducks were very mediocre. Uninspiring, languishing on offense, and giving an all-around feeling the octane tank that was overflowing in Chip Kelly's first three years in Eugene was running on empty. For all of Marcus Mariota's poise and calm, he wasn’t making the...
