CONNOR HALLIDAY RUMORS

Defensive outlook for the Ducks: clear with a chance of footballs

Crispy critter: Isiah Meyer burns the Portland State defense for a touchdown catch last Saturday. Oregon’s secondary has the challenge tonight of containing a passing attack that will put the pull up 70-90 times in Martin Stadium (James Snook-USA TODAY Sports photo). Defending against the Air Raid, it’s a little like basketball. Linebackers and defensive backs have to work through...

As the hype grows and new challenges are posed, Ducks just have to play the game they love

Immediately, I snap back into reality and realize that the most important thing is to have fun while doing what you love.

Wazzu fell despite amazing effort by Connor Halliday

Connor Halliday totaled 532 yards and 5 touchdowns of offense and could not beat Rutgers. I do not recall the last time the Cougs won a game at Century Link Field in Seattle.

Coach Leach will have to look at beefing up...

The Tailgater college football week 7 picks

We were blessed with some tight games, some close finishes, and a couple of near-upsets last weekend. Of course, last-second heroics like Ohio State’s miraculous back-door cover did nothing to help this particular trio of Tailgaters, but taken all together last Saturday offered tons of excitement. This week, all three of us managed to at least break even in our predictions. When...
