He’s the same guy who reported a three-year bowl ban for Oregon the night before the NCAA decision was announced, based on his “sources,” but Stewart Mandel forecasts doom for the Ducks at the Alamodome in his annual bowl forecast:
“On paper, there’s no reason to pick against the heavily favored Ducks, especially with quarterback Marcus Mariota expected to be fully recovered from his knee injury. But it feels as if Mack Brown is meant to win his farewell game. Texas tailback Malcolm Brown could exploit a shaky Oregon rushing defense, while Hendricks Award winner Jackson Jeffcoat will look to pressure Mariota.”
The long good-bye: while it’s true the Texas players are playing to send Mack Brown out with a win, they’ve been playing for his job for four years, and that didn’t help them much. The Ducks have motivations that are just as solid, and maybe even more sustainable over four quarters of football.
