“All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey.” For Oregon fans, these lyrics seem to match the Willamette Valley and our feelings after this game with USC. There has been enough written about our missed opportunities and mistakes in this game, and I salute our foe for a tremendous game plan and execution.
I was surprised during the game as I did not see the usual Chip Kelly changes thrown at our opponent, and it wasn’t until analyzing in DVR slow motion that I could see an unusual challenge thrown at USC that benefited us at the same time! We are also witnessing a transformation of backfield formations that will confound future adversaries and begs us to see what opposing coaches will contend with.
“Oh how we love to learn about our beloved Ducks!”
