Somebody ought to get fired for getting this story wrong

Oregon's defense needed fixing after 2013. The stats look better than they are after some dominating performances against Nichols, Virginia and Tennessee at the beginning and Texas at the end, but this was a defense that struggled to stop the run and got downright embarrassed against Stanford, Arizona and Oregon State.

Stanford Dominates ASU in PAC-12 Championship Game
