Getting to know the 2014 Oregon Ducks: Tyrell Crosby

Tyrell Crosby is a funny guy. He’s serious about football, but takes everything else with a sense of humor. Visit his Twitter on any given day and you’re apt to see a picture of him with a mischievous look on his face, one eyebrow raised, or his arm around a pretty girl. He’s deft with an old-school reference: leaving for Eugene on Thursday he announced, “In the words of...

Team leaders like Tyler Johnstone and Hroniss Grasu are talking openly about what went wrong last year and the need to get stronger and execute better. They’re not satisfied...

Photo: Oregon’s New Mach Speed Unis Have “You vs. Yesterday” Message Inside Collar

Just over a week ago, the University of Oregon released new ‘Mach Speed’ uniforms (what other school releases two new uniforms for a bowl game?) for the upcoming Valero Alamo Bowl against Texas. Today, it appears that the players received their jerseys for the game (they will be wearing the white version), and we got a look at something that wasn’t visible from the original...

Inside the highlight tape: Ducks win Civil War with gutty effort and fierce loyalty to each other

As for the bowls, the key for the Ducks now is to embrace whatever matchup they get, and treat it as a chance to improve and compete. They showed a lot of heart and resilience in coming back to win the Civil War on a night they were beaten and tested. They played for each other and never quit. In that respect, the 2013 Civil War was a triumph of coaching. This was a team that was...

Emergence of downfield passing game makes 2013 Duck offense the most formidable ever

Resistance is futile. It isn't the last test of the season or grounds for complacency, but yesterday's dismantling of Washington's most promising team of the last decade pretty much establishes that the 2013 Oregon Ducks are making a bid for greatness. This team has a special blend of talent, humility, resolve and devotion to each other. They stay on mission. And they...

Inside the highlight tape: A six pack of cool, refreshing big plays in a Frost-brewed win

Scott Frost, settling into his role as Oregon's offensive coordinator, pitched a masterful game yesterday. He worked the corners and blazed letter-high fastballs. He mixed in biting curves and a clever change of pace. He looked like a veteran pitcher in the heat of a pennant race, and the Ducks look ready for the September stretch drive on the eve of a bye week. September 28th...

Si.com gives the Ducks a preseason downgrade

Sports Illustrated's legendary college football preview issue is out, and it's a massive but meaningless snub for the Oregon Ducks. The magazine rates the Webfoots fifth in the country, behind Alabama (understandable), Stanford (questionable), Texas A&M (ludicrous), and Ohio State (a tribute to their cream puff schedule). Gabriel Baumgaertner wrote the preview, which...

Ducks storm through first week of fall camp with no shocking developments

All season long the Webfoots will bring the thunder and lightning, but yesterday they had to duck a little. Saturday was the first day of two-a-days, and with an actual thunder storm just five miles away, Coach Helfrich made his first decisive call in a pressure situation, moving both practices inside to the familiar confines of the Moshofsky Center. We got this, coach: Mark...

Funny or die: Tyler Johnstone is the anchorman on the Oregon o-line

Tyler Johnstone is kind of a big deal. There was the time he knocked Will Farrell's slurpee off the hood of his car, and the time his mother, a flight attendant, got all the flight attendants on the plane to wear his jersey.  Let's meet again at the 2017 Pro Bowl: Tyler Johnstone, Josh Huff and Marcus Mariota share a laugh with Bears first round pick Kyle Long at the...

Oregon’s starting left tackle was in a Will Ferrell movie

Oregon’s starting left tackle Tyler Johnstone actually has a career in acting under his belt. He was in a Will Ferrell movie called “Everything Must Go.” His small part included him knocking over Will Ferrell’s slurpee. He was almost fired or it was a total joke by Ferrell. I’m sure being a player on the Oregon Ducks football team isn’t that bad of a life now though. HT Dr. Saturday
