    While Duck Fans Cheer, Haters Pray for Oregon’s (Imminent) Collapse

    No Mark Twain quotes here. No rehashing of the great author’s famous statement about his death being overstated. Yet, as Duck fans, many of us can relate to that phrase. Every year Oregon’s detractors predict that the end is nigh, that surely this year the Ducks will …

    3 Ways Oregon Makes Sure the Defense is Always Wrong

    One reason I love the style of offense that Oregon uses is that it makes so much sense. In the old days, it wasn’t uncommon to hear football coaches say things like, “I don’t care if they put 14 guys in the box, we’re going to …
