In the game of football, it only takes a few seconds for euphoria to turn into tragedy. Just ask Oregon, who experienced this firsthand last Saturday in an instant classic.

If the nation’s 2017 No. 1 recruit, running back Najee Harris from Antioch, California, stays true to his verbal commitment to the Alabama Crimson Tide, he will follow QB Blake Barnett as another recent top-rated California high school football player opting to play for St. Nick Saban. Indeed, Blake was “committed” to Notre Dame and then to Oregon (for a nano-second) before he tripped to Alabama, was seduced by …

An Analysis of Cal’s High-Flying ‘Bear Raid’ Offense

Rory Davidson FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

That game back in late September — the one against Washington State — is one the Ducks remember. That was the first time this season when Oregon was exposed, offensively and defensively speaking.
