Oregon Football: Is Coach Cristobal SNOOKERING America?

Charles Fischer Editorials 103 Comments

I wonder if the Oregon head coach is snookering everyone, as he has the Ducks winning by a good margin against Stanford, but they didn’t look overly impressive. The offense is showing some surprises, yet mostly keeping it vanilla. The team’s superior depth from recruiting is beginning to show, but they’re not Alabama-good yet. Is this Oregon ball-coach trying to …

Oregon Football: “To Play or Not to Play, That is the Question”

Coach Ken Woody Editorials 52 Comments

First, the bad news: with every football season there is uncertainty. This season is already bad. Shadowed by COVID-19, which has the potential to cancel games, or the season in the worst case, the Pac-12 schedule has been shortened to seven games and doesn’t begin until November, closer to winter than autumn. Add to this Oregon coach Mario Cristobal‘s challenge …

Breaking Down the GoGo Offense: An Option at Oregon?

Jeremy Mosier Analysis 51 Comments

The GoGo Offense is unlike anything you have witnessed in college football. While we know Oregon’s coaching staff has been introduced to it, whether we fans will see it this season (or ever) remains educated conjecture. But even if we don’t see the GoGo implemented at Oregon, a quick analysis of this emerging  trend can only add to our collective …

Oregon Football: Is Joe Moorhead Adding the New GoGo Offense?

Charles Fischer Analysis 60 Comments

Oregon fans have heard much this off-season about the innovative, up-tempo Run-Pass-Option (RPO) offense new offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead ran at Fordham (picture above),  Penn State and Mississippi State. Yet I believe there is a possibility of even more innovation by Coach Moorhead this season in the form of the GoGo Offense, an entirely new offense that correlates with the objectives of …

Transfer Madness: Will the NCAA DESTROY or SAVE College Football?

Brandon Viall Editorials 57 Comments

I never thought I would do this, but, I’m going to apply Bob Dylan to sports. (Stick with me, folks!) As Dylan once sang, “Oh the times, they are a-changin’.“  As talk of an amendment to the NCAA’s transfer rules heats up, Dylan’s words may prove more true than ever. In a move that could rock college sports to the …

Justin Herbert Should TERRIFY Mario Cristobal

Ryan Robertson Editorials 42 Comments

Justin Herbert improved over his college career. That is an indisputable fact that seemed to be overlooked by pre-draft NFL writers. They seemed to believe that he peaked as a sophomore and everything was downhill after that. Herbert saw his draft stock come in to question as analysts doubted his accuracy, questioned his leadership and pre-ordained him as a bust. …

Oregon, Stanford Quarterbacks: A Nerve-Racking Debut

Jordan Ingram Editorials 35 Comments

As we eagerly await the opening game of the No. 14 Oregon Ducks’ football season against the Stanford Cardinal next Saturday, I can’t help but worry. The history between Oregon and Stanford has been filled with a white-knuckle mix of heartbreaking losses, troubling upsets and glorious revenge. But the Cardinal lead the all-time series against the Ducks with 49 wins …

Oregon’s Path to the Playoff Is Riddled with Potholes

David Marsh Editorials 35 Comments

Oregon can make the College Football Playoff in 2020 despite a a shortened season. Their path, however, is narrow, and the Ducks will require help. What Oregon has control over is two things: win and win big. Oregon cannot afford to win games by only one score this year. If Mario Cristobal and company are serious about making the playoff, …
