An Analysis of the Lurking Cougars

Rory Davidson Analysis 2 Comments

The Ducks offense was interesting last week. I felt like I was watching an Ohio State game with two quarterbacks rotating every few drives or even mid-drive. Coach Mark Helfrich has said that he may continue with this rotation between Jeff Lockie and Taylor Allie as long as Vernon Adams is recovering. I don’t know if I completely agree with that, but …
