OREGON DUCKS NEWS

The one thing missing from the Oregon offense

Unjinxable: Marcus Mariota is this week’s Sports Illustrated cover boy, in a story that highlights his NFL prospects. Right now he leads a Duck offense that keeps getting better. They bury you with a surge. Last Saturday the Oregon Ducks reeled off 41 straight points, after erupting for 28 unanswered the week before to close out Michigan State. Against Wyoming  they cranked out 263...

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. So, to all my football players and other athletes out there who feel consumed by the pressures of their sport, always remember to reminisce the feeling you felt when you first picked up a ball, and to just let the kid inside you play. —Derrick Malone, in a weekly...

Pac-12 Basketball Preview: #8 Oregon Ducks

The Sports Bank’s college basketball season previews undergo a facelift this season. Rather than counting down the top 111 teams in 111 days, we will go conference-by-conference, breaking down each team beginning with the Pac-12. As if losing five key players from last season wasn’t enough, the Oregon Ducks were forced to dismiss three key players stemming from an off-the-court...

Mariota's flip TD qualifies as early Heisman moment

Drake Rocks Oregon QB Mariota’s Jersey at Concert (Photos)

Drake is notorious for representing athletes on the collegiate and pro level. Last year, the Canadian rapper was rocking with Johnny Manziel tough at Texas A&M. I’m sure their relationship is still good, but Manziel isn’t seeing the light in Cleveland yet. So without Manziel on the college circuit, who is Drake rocking with this year in college football? Look no further than...

VIDEO: Oregon's Marcus Mariota risks everything to score flying TD

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota has a lot to lose. A shot the Pac-12 championship. Dreams of a national title. The prospects of being a first-round NFL draft pick. So was this one touchdown against Wyoming really worth going airborn from the 3-yard line and leaving himself exposed? Probably not, but Mariota isn't wired to be defensive. He plays hard and is a freak athlete....

Buying Into The Mark Helfrich Oregon Ducks Era

A lot of things come to mind when you think of Chip Kelly and his Oregon Ducks teams. His innovative hurry-up-no-huddle offense, the intense practices with blaring music, his dry, sarcastic wit with reporters; all were big parts of what he brought to the table during his 4 years running the show in Eugene. However, what set him apart more than anything was his ability to get his...

Can the Oregon Ducks Finally Make it Back to the Big Game?

USC had been dethroned by a coalition including Pete Carroll, the...
