Pac-12 Hangover – Week Twelve

With 4 Pac-12 teams, including Oregon, UCLA, Colorado and Washington State having byes last weekend, the conference slate was and felt a little on the weak side.  In addition to the lack of the aforementioned playing, USC and Cal’s Thursday night game left us with just 3 conference games on a Saturday which seemed to revolve around that night’s Alabama/Mississippi State contest...

Pac-12 Hangover – Week 8 – Oregon Beats Washington, Oregon State’s Inept Offense, And Cody Kessler’s Big Day

Oregon beat Washington again.  Colorado got beat down again.  And UCLA won in a soft and unimpressive manner again.  Such is the way of the world in a Pac-12 Conference looking more similar than not regarding what was to be this season, opposed to what has always been. This conference isn’t that good.  It isn’t bad like the Big-10, but it’s fairly mediocre in relation to...

Voice of the fan: any day is a good day to beat the Dawgs

by Mike Hayden Tony Washington, Derrick Malone and Cameron Hunt walk off Rich Brooks Field after the Ducks dropped the Huskies for the 11th straight time (Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports photo). “Walking the dog I’m just a walking the dog.  If you don’t know how to do it I’ll show you how to walk the dog”. OK I’ll admit I was a little nervous before the game and now I am...

Ducks look like contenders after rebounding in L.A., but Dawgs are a different challenge

More of this and less of that: Tony Washington and Rodney Hardrick combine to smother Brett Hundley in the Ducks 42-30 win over UCLA. Oregon needs improved run defense against the Huskies Saturday, who’ll try to exploit a unit that allowed 366 yards on the ground in Pasadena. Fans are passionate and overreact to everything. It’s an implied clause of the Constitution, an inalienable...

Oregon Coach: Controversial Taunting Call ‘Open For Interpretation’ (Video)

It seemed like Oregon had stopped Arizona when Tony Washington’s sack forced a fourth down field goal attempt late in the fourth quarter of a tie game Thursday night. Not quite. Just when it seemed like the Ducks had a victory over Arizona in hand, Washington’s celebratory bow drew a unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and an automatic first down. The call was controversial, to...

Oregon gets costly celebration penalty after Tony Washington bows (Video)

For the second year in a row, a loss to Arizona hurt Oregon’s national championship hopes. This time a questionable unsportsmanlike conduct penalty called on the Ducks late in the game was one of the turning points.

Not so fast my friend: Armstead tipped the ball

Washington State message boards nearly melted after the 38-31 loss to Oregon, and the outrage and conspiracy theories centered around a controversial noncall late in the fourth quarter. The Cougs had 3rd and 14 at the Oregon 38 with 3:48 to play, and Connor Halliday took a shotgun snap to pass for the 63nd time. The Ducks rushed five, and Arik Armstead pushed two blockers 7 yards...

Oregon’s defense, so far, are the Not-Ready-for-Primetime Players

Picking for points: Washington State shredded #2 Oregon’s defense with the Air Raid, the fourth week in a row Don Pellum’s unit has been leaky and inconsistent (James Snook-USA TODAY Sports photo.)
