Making the grade

Now it’s the Ducks’ turn- their speediest WR will also be watching from home. The impact will be similar, in […]

Where Things Stand: Duck Hunting

In my last update I briefly looked at the defensive line. To summarize, they are really good. As it turns out, Oregon’s rushing attack is pretty good as well, which is going to make the battle between Oregon’s offense vs. Ohio State’s defense a hot topic in the weeks to come. Well, I made a […]

And now we know

Our Rose Bowl matchup will be… The University of Oregon Great matchup: Ohio State’s ball control Boom/Zoom/Doom offense against an Oregon defense that has been questionable at times (although they did look solid against U$C).

Where Things Stand: D-Line Going Bowling
