Ben Salaman FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 4 Comments

Oregon football is known for coming out on top of the Pac-12 at the end of each season. They finished their 2014 run winning the conference championship, the Ducks did the same in their 2011 season, and in their 2010 season when the conference was originally called the Pac-10.

The Oregon baseball team has come a long way since the reinstatement of the program in 2009. That year, the Ducks finished dead last in the Pac-10 with a record of 14-42.

My curiosity toward this 2015 Oregon Baseball team is just enormous; rumor is the pitching is inexperienced and this might be the first year George Horton cannot rely as much on defense.
