Scott Frost says “I Have a Ton of Confidence in Our Process”

As soon as the clock hit zero, the uncertainty kicked in. While Ohio State was celebrating its 8th national championship, the Oregon Ducks walked off the AT&T Stadium field with their heads down. The Ducks soared all season long, overcame multiple injuries, and their quarterback carried them like no other Oregon quarterback had ever done before. But in the end, it just wasn’t enough.

Did the Ducks championship window close? How will they replace a multitude of players that were pillars for the program? Those questions have been at the forefront of national chatter for nearly three months now. Not only did the Ducks lose Marcus Mariota – who was the program’s first Heisman winner — to the NFL Draft, but they also saw the departure of three other all-Americans.

Scott Frost believes that the Ducks will bounce back from that tough loss to Ohio State.

Scott Frost believes that the Ducks will bounce back from that tough loss to Ohio State.

While some national media members have already jumped off the Oregon bandwagon, Scott Frost – the Ducks offensive coordinator — believes that the program has what it takes to bounce back.

“I have a ton of confidence in our process and how we do things here,” Frost said earlier this week. “As long as I’ve been here, every time we’ve lost a player that people didn’t think we could replace the program ended up just fine.”

Despite the fact that the Ducks will not posses the same household names next season like they have in the past, Oregon’s coaching staff is confident that the core group of young players that will return next year will have what it takes to keep the Ducks winning tradition alive. Quarterbacks Ty Griffin and Taylor Alie have made huge strides this spring, and the evolution of Evan Baylis and Johnny Mundt at the tight end position has caught Frost’s attention, as well.

“Evan Baylis is out there grinding right now. He got a ton better as the year went on last year. We’re really going to count on him,” Frost said. “Johnny Mundt had a couple games his freshman year when he showed his talent, but then didn’t have it quite put together. He’s starting to show good signs.”

It’s only the middle of April, but coach Frost and the rest of Oregon’s coaching staff is feeling confident about next season.

    Let me add, that this year Oregon faces a Pac-12 with USC back at or near full strength. I sound like the bad guy when I point out the obvious fact that Oregon’s ascendency coincides with SCs infractions. It’s true. And I hate SC. But I’m a realist.

  • MAITAIDUCK

    Yes I’m a realist also and that’s why I believe Oregon will still win the PAC 12 North with VA at QB and win the Pac 12 title game also. I hope it’s against USC because Oregon is way deeper on offense than SC. Pellum will have this Defense humming his 2nd year and this will be the year we finally get rid of that ugly bend but don’t break offense and let their players attack offenses with more attacking the QB with pressure. Oregon should have their best front 7 in quite a while and they will finally be in that Top ranking in the PAC 12. Really doesn’t matter that SC is back at full strength because they are not. Everyone is better in the PAC because of the TV Money all the teams get now and better coach’s. USC still will have a lot tougher South conference and more than likely loses 2 and maybe 3 times. Oregon still is a better team than SC. I also hate SC because they are known to be cheaters and got caught. GO DUCK’S and perdiction is Oregon gets back to the 4 team Playoff and win it’s 1st NC ever in Football against OS!
