Thirty-four points and 530 yards doesn't sound too bad does it? You could live with your team averaging that, couldn't you? One touchdown and a two point conversion to go with around 130 yards a quarter is a healthy average for any offense. Except we are not talking about an offense. Not exactly. Those numbers you were just shrugging to, those acceptable numbers, were what AP #4 Oregon gave up on defense to Arkansas State last Saturday evening. Arkansas State scored four touchdowns and two field goals to go with over 500 all-purpose yards on the #4 team in the nation. I know what you're thinking, I think it also. “That's not the whole story”. It doesn't matter what we who watched the game think, it's what everyone who was asleep on the east coast by the time that game ended thought when they read the headline over breakfast the next day.

Oregon Looking At Special Season … In 2013

Sitting in a half empty Autzen Stadium Saturday night as the last minutes rolled off the clock, fans couldn’t help but look at this Oregon team and think of what could be. A freshman quarterback who showed poise well beyond his 19 years. A once-in-a-generation jitterbug in De’Anthony Thomas that very well could end up in New York come December, and a deep and talented defense...

Lowe and Addison Ready for Game 2

EUGENE, Ore. – Prior to the release of the depth chart a couple of weeks back, there was much speculation surrounding the wide receiver position for the Ducks. Though the Ducks did have a few returning starters in Josh Huff, Daryle Hawkins, and Rahsaan Vaughn, many knew the Ducks’ receiving corps would see more than its fair share of new faces throughout the season.

Another first-year head coach for Ducks

For the second week in a row the Oregon Ducks will face a first-year head coach, this time Fresno State’s Tim DeRuyter, who comes to the Bulldogs after stints as the defensive coordinator at Texas A&M and Air Force.
