The 2020 Pac-12 Championship is a Sham

David Marsh Editorials

2020 has not been a good year for Pac-12 football, and has become a major disappointment for Oregon fans.

Oregon Football: It’s Gut-Check Time, Folks

Jordan Ingram Editorials

Honestly Ducks fans, I was planning on writing a much different article today. Don’t worry, there will always be time for spitballing nicknames for Oregon’s offensive line (Mario’s Manhandlers?)

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott made the official announcement restricting the Pac-12 football season to conference-only games on July 10, …

Jordan Ingram Editorials

After just going through the motions these past few weeks, overwhelmed by the steady stream of coronavirus updates, I came across an article that violently jolted me back to life. CBS Sports writer David Cobb has predicted the California Golden Bears will finish 11-1 to win the Pac-12 North title next season.  Cobb goes on to predict the Oregon Ducks …
