2nd half thread, Oregon at Virginia

Ducks lead 28-10 but have kept the Wahoos close with stupid penalties and poor blocking by the offensive line. They've been stuffed twice on fourth down, once at the UVa. three just before the half. Oregon has 6 penalties for 80 yards, and two of them, a taunting foul on De'Anthony Thomas, a late hit on Ricky Heimuli, were ticky-tack. A couple of the other were plain stupid...

Oregon Ducks fall camp: everybody's ready to hit somebody. ...

Running backs coach Gary Campbell is back at practice, and so is receiver Dwayne Stanford. The Ducks are tired of hitting each other. Linebacking proceeds by committee. Jake Rodrigues is a playmaker, Jeff Lockie is cerebral, and Dustin Haines is the holder. Everything clear so far? The Oregon offensive line lags behind the defensive line, which thus far looks massive and dominating...

Double H: Ricky Havili-Heimuli looks to bowl over quarterbacks and strike often

Duck fans who follow recruiting were jubilant when Ricky Heimuli signed his Letter of Intent back in February of 2010.

Oregon Ducks take down the Golden Bears 59-17

Ducks vs Bears Love ‘em Hate ‘em Style This was not the prettiest game to watch if you are an Oregon Ducks fan; well, at least in the first half. Heading into California the Ducks knew they would be hitting the road with a depleted roster, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

Getting it done? Oregon Ducks football overachievers & underachievers

First Impressions The Oregon Ducks have, for the most part, stayed true to their 2012 college football expectations. Coming off of their first Rose Bowl victory since 1917, many expected the Ducks to be one of the best teams in college football as they returned a slough of players on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball while also adding lots of young and fresh talent...

While there have been fairly good defenses since then (such as the 2010 National...
