Ladies and gentlemen, we are finally close to arriving at our destination. Thank you for your patience and consideration as we have been gone for nearly 9 months and are less than a week away from the kickoff of the 2013 football season. Less than a week away from seeing our new look Ducks hit the field to play against a subpar opponent. It’s not exactly the most exciting way to kick off the football season for our Ducks, but boy does it get interesting after Week 1.
Two amazing non-conference match-ups await in heading to Virginia and then playing Tennessee at home the following week. After the pretty tough non-conference schedule, the Ducks host Cal to kick off the Pac-12 Conference season. It only gets tougher from there as there are games against UCLA, Stanford, Oregon State and Arizona, not to mention traveling to Seattle to face the Huskies. Man, I hate that purple!
The highly anticipated season is quickly approaching, and no one can be more excited to see our Ducks try to win a national title than I am. It was a great run under Chip, and boy did we come close against Auburn, but in Marcus I trust. He is poised to win countless personal accolades this season and with similar play calls and an improved defense, we should be able to make another serious run at a Pac-12 championship, along with a possible National Championship Game appearance. Marcus Mariota is the guy to lead us to the promised land. Here’s a cheer to him for making it happen!
