Oregon’s Cali Flock: Keyon Ware-Hudson is READY to ROCK the PAC

Cameron Johansson Recruiting 17 Comments

After the Ducks’ wide receiving corps, Oregon’s defensive front seven is arguably the deepest unit on the roster. Kayvon Thibodeaux, Jordon Scott and Austin Faoliu will most definitely be leading the defensive line into the season, but there are also plenty of players who will be knocking on the door looking for some action in the 2020 season.

Charles Fischer Editorials 45 Comments

Does location play a part in becoming a National Champion in college football?

Jordan Ingram Editorials 48 Comments

I’ve never been to Utah, and Lord willing, I will not have to travel there to start the 2020 college football season. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a beautiful place.
