Oregon RB Byron Marshall Drops Football Before Crossing The Goal Line

It never ceases to amaze me when this happens. Oregon Ducks running back Byron Marshall had a monster game against South Dakota State, but his most memorable play was this epic blunder. He dropped the ball just before the end zone and a 54-yard touchdown turned into a touchback and South Dakota State ball. Marshall […] The post Oregon RB Byron Marshall Drops Football Before Crossing...

Byron Marshall pulls a DeSean Jackson, drops ball before end zone (Video)

Byron Marshall had a monster game for Oregon in the Ducks’ season-opening 62-13 win over South Dakota on Saturday night in Eugene, but it would have been even bigger if not for a mental mistake. Marshall took a second quarter handoff and broke through the defense for what should have been a 54-yard touchdown. However, […]

Keys to the game, and the season, start with attitude and focus

Ready to push up, throw down and push back: the Oregon Duck opens his arms wide for a new season, one in which the Webfoots have sky-high hopes (Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports photo). There are no keys to the game in a game where you’re favored by 50, but there are some things to watch for in Oregon’s opener against South Dakota tonight at Autzen Stadium. Kickoff is at 7:30, carried...

2014 Oregon Ducks Football: The New Season and Week One

In any other world, Mark Helfrich's first year as Oregon Ducks head football coach would have been seen as a magnificent success. 11-2, Alamo Bowl win, returning a top Heisman Trophy Candidate...But this is an Oregon Ducks fan base that got tremendously spoiled during the Chip Kelly Era. In the four years of the CKE, the Ducks went to four straight BCS Bowl games (Rose, BCS Title...

Four Good Reasons To Keep Watching While The Oregon Ducks Clobber South Dakota

There’s nothing quite like kicking off football season with a huge intersectional matchup between ranked teams to get the juices flowing. Matchups like Clemson vs Georgia, Florida State vs Oklahoma State, and Wisconsin vs LSU are the kind of games that even the most fair-weathered fan can get excited about. Unfortunately for Oregon Duck fans, they’ll have to wait until Week 2...

Measure the Ducks Saturday not by the scoreboard, but what they could be

Pick a number. The Ducks could reach it. Oregon is a 52 1/2 favorite for Saturday night’s opening game against South Dakota, and if Mark Helfrich went full throttle with the number one offense for four quarters, the Ducks might have to hand out coupons for free chalupas. Helfrich is too class a guy for that. There’s a great likelihood that Oregon will empty the bench by the middle...

Pellum on the sidelines is the first right move for the Oregon defense

After four weeks of smashing each other, the Ducks finally get to play a game, and fans get a first look at what looks to be an improved, energized and aggressive defense (Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports). Ultimately it’s not about the x’s and the o’s, it’s about the energy, execution and effort. Which is why Duck fans should be encouraged by Don Pellum’s decision to coach...

Marcus Mariota on goals, pressure and preparation

In this video from Comcast Sports NW, Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota talks about the team’s response to pressure and expectations, stating very directly that the goal is to win the conference and compete for the national championship. He praises the team’s effort in fall camp. What’s most striking in the video in how comfortable he looks in the spotlight. It still isn...

Oregon cashing in on Marcus Mariota, selling 25 different versions of his jersey (Photo)

You have to love college sports. While the NCAA has stopped selling player jerseys, the schools themselves haven’t. What’s funny is that other teams are doing the same thing, per the Big Lead. But it gets better, as ESPN notes, because amateurism is the best! Michigan is offering 17 versions of No. 98, QB Devin Gardner; Notre Dame is selling 15 different No. 5 jerseys (returning...

Oregon Releases Amazing “I Got Mine” Hype Video Ahead Of 2014 Season Opener

In just one week, the Oregon Ducks will suit up and take the field against South Dakota for the first game of their 2014 season – a campaign that fans hope is finally the campaign when the program breaks through and captures a national championship.

Ducks close best-ever fall camp, begin game week

Fall camp is over and the Ducks begin a normal game week Saturday. A few disappointed young players will be issued red scout team jerseys after being counseled today about whether or not they’re earmarked to redshirt. Yesterday in the last scrimmage of fall camp Royce Freeman broke off a couple of long TD runs, amid growing buzz that he’s challenging to be the starter at running...

Will this be the year that Marcus Mariota proves that he can lead Oregon to a championship?

I still remember the buzz around Oregon QB Marcus Mariota back in 2012. The Ducks had just lost the National Championship game to Auburn. Darron Thomas was the quarterback at the time and was only a red-shirt junior. Thomas would declare for the NFL Draft because Mariota started to emerge to the point where Thomas was not the guaranteed starter. At 6’4 with a strong-arm and running...

Oregon bolsters roster with late addition of Dillon Brooks

Going into the 2014-2015 season, the Oregon Ducks were set to have one of the youngest and least deep rosters in the high-major ranks. That situation got a bit better on Sunday night, as news broke that 6′-6″ forward Dillon Brooks of Findlay Prep (NV) decided to reclassify to the 2014 class from the 2015 class, ...

Why Marcus Mariota Will Not Win the Heisman Trophy

When coaches and scouts are asked to describe Oregon Ducks Quarterback Marcus Mariota, the remarks are always in the highly positive.  Mariota is described to be a leader on the field with great size, speed, and a cannon for an arm.  Mariota was projected as a top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, and barring any major injury or setback, will be a top pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.  Mariota...

Marcus Mariota's course load will make you laugh

Marcus Mariota could have left Oregon for the NFL following last season. The Ducks redshirt junior quarterback would have likely been a first-round draft pick. He could be making millions of dollars as a professional athlete.  The dual threat opted to return to Eugene for at least one more season. Life won’t be too bad for the Heisman contender, either. He’s only taking two...
