DazeNconfused Analysis

Duck fans, sometimes two heads are better than one, and amazing minds tend to think alike. It appears Oregon’s head coach Dan Lanning has concluded that the best path to follow with his team during his first year is the Chip Kelly recipe. Kelly certainly displayed an amazing mind during his tenure coaching the Ducks. Lanning can’t do any better …

Best Defense: Wazzu’s Cover-1 or Oregon’s Cover-2?

DazeNconfused Analysis

Many Duck fans were surprised by the Wazzu defense, as they seemed to be faster than the Ducks, getting into the backfield and blowing up plays. Fans’ observations that two defenses appeared different were correct: they are two different pass defense schemes. Both teams run a 4-2-5 scheme for the most part. This defense consists of four men on the …

Bo Nix Gives Oregon’s Offense New Life

Joshua Whitted Editorials

On Saturday, Oregon’s defense didn’t have many answers for the electric Cameron Ward. Washington State’s talented signal caller gave the Ducks everything they could handle, making ridiculous escapes, off-balance throws and mind-blowing plays time after time. Last year’s Ducks wouldn’t have had the firepower to keep up with the frenetic Cougar offense. Playing from behind certainly wasn’t Oregon’s specialty under …

The Oregon-Dillingham Offense: The New Arc Zone Read

Coach Eric Boles Analysis

After three weeks of college football, the Oregon Ducks offense has emphatically declared its identity. They are a physical unit based around the run game, that is also going to stretch defenses both horizontally and vertically through the air; they’re going to attack. One of the run concepts that these Ducks have used to set a tone the last couple …

Remember the Belly-Bop! Join us in the GameDay Discussion Thread vs. BYU

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

It’s free! A tremendous GameDay discussion thread in the Our Beloved Ducks forum that we invite you to join.

Fear of the Blowout

Darren Perkins Editorials

Move over, Ohio State. As huge as that 2021 non-conference game was for the Ducks and the Pac-12, it does not reach the heights of this year’s epic Week 1 matchup against the defending National Champion Georgia Bulldogs in Atlanta. Unless, of course, the Ducks get blown out; then Oregon fans can downplay the significance of this game. They can …
