Oregon Ducks And The BCS BS

Saying goodbye to the Bowl Championship Series era of college football means saying hello to the reasons Oregon played Texas in the Alamo Bowl on 12/30/13. The troubling question is how did the 10-2 Ducks, #2 in the PAC-12, end up playing the 8-4 Texas Longhorns who finished #3 in the Big 12? If you answer, "Arizona," you're not digging hard enough.

John Neal would be a good choice as Oregon defensive coordinator, but this guy might be a great one

In the words of the immortal Groucho Marx, nepotism is all right as long as you keep it in the family. With Nick Aliotti retiring Oregon has both a challenge and an opportunity in hiring the next defensive coordinator. After Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Marcus Mariota and Hroniss Grasu elected to stay in school, the Ducks are ranked #3 or better in the preseason polls. They're a...

Oregon Ducks Are Flying Foul

Oregon Ducks men’s basketball continues to struggle after losing their fourth game in a row. It is hard to remember that just a few short weeks ago the Ducks were 13-0 and #10 in the country.

2014 Ducks will have a key weapon they've lacked a reliable kicker with range

In 2014 the Ducks will have one key element of a championship team that they haven't had in years: a stable, reliable, dependable kicker. It's Matt Wogan's job, and he has the leg to kick a 60-yard field goal. December 30th at the Alamo Bowl, he made his first three kicks. How long had it been since Oregon had three field goals in a game, or made a kick to win...
