Josh’s Video Analysis: Stopping Wisconsin

Wisconsin has one of the most talented offenses in the nation, backed with talent and size at every position, this will be, undoubtedly, Oregon’s biggest challenge this season.

Superstars Monte Ball and Russel Wilson will pose even bigger problems for the Ducks than Andrew Luck and Matt Barkley did earlier this season, and their massive offensive line is reminiscent of LSU’s offensive line that Oregon had to deal with in week one.

The efficiency and effectiveness of this offense are unique and win or lose, this game will showcase the game’s finest football from the two best offenses in College Football. Oregon’s quick and agile offensive linemen, vs. Wisconsin’s gigantic linemen. It truly is a battle of tradition and innovation in the Grandaddy of ’em all.

    Great rundown. The Ducks defense has been good enough to win, but of course the question is now have they natured enough this season to stop a high powered talented offense like the Badgers.  Would love to see your breakdown on the Ducks kickoff coverage whichdrives me absolutely crazy as a ex-football coach.

    • Not to spoil the offseason, but special teams is going to be one of our feature pieces after the Rose Bowl!

    Great job, Josh.  IMHO, the key to Defensing Wisc. is the combo, in order of priority, of (1) Stacking Box to stop run/Ball, using quickness of D-Line and LB  to clog & frustrate their blocking schemes [something Alioti’s traditionally good at; (2) getting Dion Jordan into QB Wilson’s passing lanes to block or tip his passes [Wilson’s only weakness is he’s  5′ 11″] — need tip passes to lead to INTs; (3) solid, one-one-one coverage by our young DBs [a BIG ask, I know]; and Safety Boyett guarding against the long passes.

    It will be a HUGE boost for Ducks if Offense can take lead early and keep scoring, like it did vs. Stanford.  That require good Game Plan/Play calling, and using triple option early & often.
