OREGON RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

Numbers confirm Ducks are good, but need to be better in league play

Surfin’ USA: Marcus Mariota prepares to fly to the end zone in Oregon’s 48-14 win over South Dakota. He vaulted a defender at the 4 and landed on his million-dollar shoulders, going into a perfect tuck position like he was body-surfing a big wave (Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports photo). Oregon’s offensive execution in the Wyoming was very crisp. The quarterbacks combined for 25...

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....

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...

Attack of the killer freshman: and two other reasons why the Ducks will be a horror show for the PAC-12 North

Devon Allen: he fast (Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports photo.) This Oregon team might even be better than we hoped. Some national writers and pundits are now saying they should be the number one team in the country right now. They got 16 first place votes in the AP poll, to Florida State’s 38. There’s no reason to waste much energy on that debate, because the polls will sort themselves...

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...
