We knew going into this season that with a new weapon in De’Anthony Thomas, and a new playbook that went from 75 plays to 200 plays—that we would see new strategies to match. What we did not expect was to see Chip changing up some of basic strategies and philosophies in attacking a defense. We have witnessed the transition of designed Outside Zone Reads going inside, and of Inside Zone Read plays going outside.
We have noted the new Inside Zone Read/Power Play hybrid play, and now we see Chip altering his “One Quarterback” philosophy? The Oregon Spread Offense is becoming more than just entertainment; it is an ongoing evolution of a newer Head Coach and how he deals with the many challenges thrown at him by the clever Defensive Coordinators of this conference. We have a front row seat and it’s great fun to study…even through the “off” games that come along through a long football season!

FishDuck Going to Articles on Monday and Tuesday Only…
Our off-season schedule begins, and we move from publishing articles seven days a week to Mondays and Tuesdays only. Same great group of writers, and we will have an article on other days on occasion.
The Our Beloved Ducks Forum (OBD) is where we we discuss the article above and many more topics, as it is so much easier in a message board format over there. At the free OBD forum we will be posting Oregon Sports article links, the daily Press Releases from the Athletic Department and the news coming out every day.
Our 33 rules at the free OBD Forum can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) do not tell anyone what to think, feel or write, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!
