RB Royce Freeman returning to Oregon for senior season

In what has to be considered an absolute shocker, talented running back Royce Freeman will return to the Oregon Ducks for his senior season. This is definitely a rarity for top prospects, primarily at the running back position. In making the decision, Freeman had this to say on Wednesday. “After consulting with my family and giving this considerable thought, I feel this is the...

Royce Freeman: The Forgotten Running Back

There’s no doubt that the junior class of running backs is loaded. With names like Leonard Fournette, Dalvin Cook, and Christian McCaffrey garnering most of the praise, it's easy for some to get lost in the shuffle. One of the best running backs that is flying under the radar is Royce Freeman at Oregon.  Just on looks alone, Freeman doesn't seem like a back that could seamlessly...

Oregon Will Go As Far As RB Royce Freeman Can Carry Them

Oregon fans are not getting what they have grown accustomed to over the years. Under Chip Kelly and during the Marcus Mariota years they grew accustomed to a high-flying, fast as lightning offense that blew teams out of the water week in and week out. That has been far from the case this season.Critics will likely say there are a lot of reasons why, but when it comes down to it they...

Oregon football: Run Royce, Run

It is no secret who the Oregon Duck offense revolved around in the 2014 college football season. Quarterback Marcus Mariota led the offensive attack while compiling impressive statistics on his way to becoming the university’s first ever Heisman winner. He carried his team to a Pac-12 Championship, Rose Bowl victory and a chance to play in the national championship, but he did...

Oregon football: Reacting to first CFB playoff rankings

Just about a half hour before the time of me writing this, the College Football Playoff Selection Committee released their first ever ranking. Every year before this, the top two teams from the AP Poll would face off in the National Championship while every team ranked 3 and below would have to play in bowl games. This system was very long withstanding but many believed it was flawed...

Oregon football: Keys to defeating UW

This week is a great week at the University of Oregon. Although being officially dubbed as Homecoming week by the staff and administration, go around campus asking what week it is and you’re likely to get quite a few, “It’s Husky Hate Week!” responses as UO students get pumped for one of the bigger rivalry games of the year, and perhaps the biggest rivalry of home games....

Oregon football: We’re not going anywhere

Horrifying. Terrible. Unspeakable. Shocking. No, I’m not describing the most recent actions of ISIS, nor am I reviewing the new Nicolas Cage movie. I’m referring to the #2 Oregon Ducks’ tragic loss to unranked Arizona last night. Many were hyping this year’s team up to be one of the best squads in recent memory and through the first few weeks, things were looking as expected...
