Oregon football recruiting: new verbal commit Braden Eggert adds size, tenacity to Duck o-line

Braden Eggert gets after people. From Napa High School in Napa, California, the school that brought the Ducks hard-hitting safety John Boyett, Eggert is a 6-7, 305 left tackle who stays on blocks and drives people to the ground. The 3-star prospect originally committed to Mike Leach and Washington State in August, but the Ducks committed an act of football piracy in getting him...

Crazy Colts Fan - Indianapolis Safety John Boyett: You Can't Arrest Me. I'm a Colts Player!

When Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano was informed about what one of his rookies--former Oregon Duck safety John Boyett had done over the weekend I imagine that all he did was shake his head. Pagano seems to be the kind of guy that does not lose his composure no matter what. So even though he may be seething inside about what Boyett did we will never...

Ducks in the NFL: Stewart, Boyett in football purgatory, LMJ hangs on

NFL waiver wires are beginning to hum as teams move toward Saturday night's 53-man roster deadline, but so far the bulk of former Oregon Ducks are hanging on to their thin lifeline in the not-for-long league. Yesterday the 49'ers placed South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore on the Non-football Injury List, a day after waiving former Boise State Bronco D.J. Harper...

Dargan comes alive: 212-lb. pad-smacker finds his place in Duck secondary

People worry about the undersized linebackers and the loss of Alonso and Clay. Where are all the tackles going to come from, with Boyett, Jordan, and the inside linebackers graduated? One thing to remember is that the Oregon secondary forces and closes against the run extremely well. They're all hitters, playing with a lot of physicality. Terrance Mitchell is 6-0, 189.

Five positions Oregon needs to upgrade in 2013

Making a Run Last year the Oregon Ducks were heading into their 2012 college football season with questions surrounding a few key positions. Could Marcus Mariota be the real deal at quarterback and succeed as a freshman in the Pac-12? Would the Oregon secondary be able to improve upon their 2011 statistics despite the loss of John Boyett? Could Kenjon Barner replace the productivity...

Can the Ducks overcome the cover jinx? Are they ready for Arizona and the PAC-12?

 Even without John Boyett and Carson York, the Ducks have enough talent and experience to compete for a national championship this season. They have the nation's attention with a top 3 ranking and De'Anthony Thomas on the cover of Sports Illustrated. If they keep winning, they'll be invited to Miami, and Thomas to New York. But right now they have a lot more to overcome...

Tennessee Tech-Oregon Preview

Oregon never struggles to score points, but it's getting a lesson in how to close out games before Pac-12 play begins. The fourth-ranked Ducks look to dominate for an entire 60 minutes when they finish their non-conference slate at home against FCS opponent Tennessee Tech on Saturday.

Duck Mondays: Week 2

With relatively little change at the top of the college football world, this week was an uneventful one for the #4 Oregon Ducks. The Ducks flattened Fresno State 42-25 as Chip Kelly’s team felt the pressure of a close game. That is, if you want to call a 17 point win “close”. Before the Duck’s victory, the “other” team in the state of Oregon pulled off a fantastic upset...

Why the Oregon defense is always underrated, and how that's about to change

Superficial measures never go far enough. Fans expect perfection and an unbroken chain of three and outs, and analysts compare everything to SEC, where one quarterback in ten can throw and every other weekend the opponent is helpless and punchless, Troy State or Mississippi. Statistics tell their own damn lies. Oregon's defense will always be underrated, as long as the measures...
