Is Chris Miller The Most Influential Player in Oregon History?

Darren Perkins Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 7 Comments

Dan Fouts is the hall of famer. Marcus Mariota is the Heisman Trophy winner. Joey Harrington is the state of Oregon’s favorite son. And Chris Miller? Well, he’s just the one who started it all. “Started what?” you’re asking. Started the winning. As we hit the thirty-year mark of Miller being drafted by the Atlanta Falcons with the 13th overall pick in …

Kylie Stiglbauer Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 0 Comments

When you think about Oregon’s offense, words like fast, strong and resilient come to mind. All-star wide receiver Dwayne Stanford is the epitome of what it means to be a part of Oregon’s offense. The 6’5″ redshirt junior has had an impressive career with the Ducks so far and hopes to keep his streak alive. With a team high of …

Jordan Kent: Oregon’s Three-Sport Star

Henry Swift Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 0 Comments

In college football today we often expect our athletes to be involved with a second sport. Lamichael James, Kenjon Barner, De’Anthony Thomas, and Devon Allen all have participated in track and field. There are rare athletes that take this a step further and take on more than just football and track. For example, we have Liz Brenner and her mission to participate in every …

Jim Radcliffe: The Man Who Makes Oregon Go

Henry Swift Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 5 Comments

All programs have them and they are often overlooked by the fans. They are the people who transform incoming freshmen into future stars. These unsung heroes are the strength and conditioning coaches, and they are just as important to the program as each position coach. Without them, no amount of scouting or play calling would help the team win.  Fans of Oregon have …

Oregon Culture: The Men of Oregon

Nik Brownlee Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 5 Comments

In Eugene, the days of losing seasons seem to be far in the rear-view mirror. With two national title appearances in five years, and a slew of BCS bowl wins under the program’s belt, the Oregon Ducks have ascended to the top of the college football landscape. Without a doubt, Oregon has one of the most talented rosters in college …

A Forgotten Hero — Mike Bellotti

Noah Smith Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 3 Comments

When talking about the head coach who started Oregon on its winning ways in the modern age, people often think of Chip Kelly — he is the one who built the program, many would proclaim. While Kelly did certainly have a lot of success at Oregon, Mike Bellotti is the man who first set Oregon on course with a culture of winning. …

The Legend of Kiko Alonso

Henry Swift Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 3 Comments

Most legends we hear about have one thing in common — they revolve around heroes. These legends also follow the same pattern of having a hero’s story arc. The hero comes in as a savior with a bright and promising future and has a major fall — only to rise again stronger than ever. During his time in Eugene, Kiko Alonso …

A Real Casanova — Looking Back at One of Oregon’s Greatest Ducks

Noah Smith Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 3 Comments

Set the way-back machine to 1951 and get your DeLoreans up to 88 MPH. We’re going back to look at a famous Duck from Oregon‘s rich history. While Oregon has had many great coaches over the years, I think we can all agree that the coolest name of them all belongs to Len Casanova. Known as Cas to his friends, he …

Don Pellum: College Football’s Best-Dressed Genius

Henry Swift Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 3 Comments

In my last article I discussed all that Gary Campbell has done for the Oregon Duck program and his impressive collection of game-day suits. Even though his collection of suits is impressive, he may not even be the best dressed coach at Oregon. There is one man who can challenge him for college football’s best dressed coach and that is Don …

“The Dutchman” and the Original Vertical Passing Game

Noah Smith Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 3 Comments

In Oregon’s history, there have been many players and coaches of note — from coach Cal Young and his one-game inaugural season in 1984 to Chip Kelly and Marcus Mariota. Although most people say Mariota is the greatest Oregon player of all time, another man held that honor since the 1950s. Back in the era of leather helmets, the hero of …

Gary Campbell — The Man in the Suit and Behind the Offense

Henry Swift Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 2 Comments

Rich Brooks, Mike Bellotti, and Chip Kelly are all coaches responsible for great seasons and the current state of the Oregon football team. As fans, we attribute success and failure to the head coaches, but it is never just the head coaches that are responsible for the success of a team. Too often we give the head coaches — and sometimes …
