OREGON RUMORS & GOSSIP

As long as the Ducks have Mariota, I’m saying there’s a chance

Grace under pressure: as he entered the tunnel after the game he patted an equipment manager on the shoulder and gave the crowd a “Hang Loose” sign. Marcus Mariota is the best quarterback in college football, and it isn’t even close (James Snook-USA TODAY Sports photo.) Turns out Aaron Fentress was right. The Ducks do have serious flaws, but as long as they have Marcus Mariota...

Photos: Oregon To Debut New Black ‘Mach Speed’ Jerseys For WSU Game

This won’t come as a surprise, but Saturday night, the Oregon Ducks will be debuting new jerseys when they take on Washington State on the road. UO will be wearing its black “Mach Speed” threads – the same ones that were unveiled last December ahead of the Alamo Bowl. The team chose to go with its green and white version for that game, holding the black and yellow kit for...

2014 Oregon Ducks Football: Throwing it Around

Last year, Washington State QB Connor Halliday set an NCAA record by attempting 89 passes against Oregon, a game I attended. Oregon wore pink breast cancer awareness helmets, so it's easy to pick that game out during the highlight montages. In my Pac-12 preview for BayAreaSportsGuy.com I noted that I expected Halliday to break 100 attempts at some point this season. It may well...

Ducks have to prove it every week in the nation’s most competitive conference

For all the success Oregon’s had in the last six years, they are 0-2 on the road right now. Going into Pullman and having a sharp, focused game where they respond to the challenges and question marks of the first few weeks is vitally important. The season is one quarter over. It’s the start of conference play, a nine-game gauntlet where nine challengers will try to expose the...

Injury woes pose challenge for the Ducks, but they’ve handled them before

Kan-do spirit: with injuries exacting their terrible tax on the Oregon offensive line, players like 6-2, 295 Jake Pisarcik have to be ready for a larger role in the team’s success. Here he congratulates running back Kani Benoit after paving the way for Benoit’s first career touchdown as a Duck (Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports photo.) Injuries are part of the game in a collision...

Wednesday Two-Minute drill: Ducks fully prepped for pass-happy Cougs

Tyner Time: Thomas Tyner has run hard for the Oregon Ducks this season, but he hasn’t had the kind of second-level success he’s capable of while plowing for the hard yards up the middle. That may change this weekend versus Washington State (Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports photo). The future looks bright but it won’t be easy: the PAC-12 released Oregon’s 2015 schedule Tuesday...

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...

Photo: Drake Wore Two Marcus Mariota Jerseys And Oregon Sneakers During A Concert On Saturday

Rapper and noted sports fan Drake performed a concert in Ridgefield, Washington on Saturday night. The show was about two hours away from the campus of the University of Oregon, and Drake — who is known to wear gear for many different teams — rocked some awesome Ducks attire last night. Drizzy wore two different Marcus Mariota jerseys, along with a special pair of Oregon sneakers...

Vine: Oregon’s Marcus Mariota Goes Airborne, Flips Into The End Zone For A Touchdown

Marcus Mariota is awesome. The Oregon quarterback and Heisman Trophy hopeful’s career is full of great moments, and he added another one to his highlight reel today. The Ducks are hosting Wyoming, and midway through the second quarter, Mariota ran for a touchdown. While this is nothing unusual — Mariota has ran for 17 touchdowns in his career — this one was different. As he...

2014 Oregon Ducks Football, Game Three: Set Your Alarm Clock!

A few years ago on a different website named after primates, I wrote about how horrible the Pac-10's teevee contract was after a game involving undefeated and 2nd-ranked Oregon originally wasn't allowed to be broadcast live in Eugene (you know, where the university is located) because of exclusive broadcast “windows” the conference had negotiated with the ABC/ESPN conglomerate...

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...

A Little Grit, A Lot Of Mariota, And The Oregon Ducks Launch Their National Title Bid

Every team, every coach, every star, Heisman-contending quarterback needs a game to bring people to their feet. Sure, I was saying all week that I thought Oregon would beat Michigan State. I said it sitting down. On the bus, at the dinner table, on the soccer field – the Ducks should win this game. It’s at Autzen after all. But believe me when I tell you I wasn’t screaming...

Video: Lee Corso, Duck Mascot Pick Oregon, Things Get Weird

College GameDay went to Eugene, Oregon for this week’s top-10 showdown between the No. 3 Oregon Ducks and the No. 7 Michigan State Spartans. Like usual, the GameDay environment at Oregon was awesome, but this week was different, because the guest picker was the school’s mascot, the Oregon Duck. The Duck was an incredibly entertaining guest picker, but the best part was at the...
