NWSB blogger and Oregon State insider Jon Irwin reports on the areas he thinks OSU’s offense needs to improve in 2013. Mike Riley’s pro-style offense is deep in weapons, but it’s only effective if all the parts are working together. Without fixes to 2012’s problem areas, the team could be in for a disappointing season in 2013. Storm Woods (940 yards) was a huge reason for the turnaround, can it happen again?
NWSB Insider and Oregon Ducks blogger Bryant Knox explains why you should love the Mark Helfrich hiring as a Ducks fan. When Chip Kelly was hired as head coach, you had the feeling it wasn’t forever. He is now in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, and Helfrich is ready to take over. UO’s newest head coach is someone the team and its fan base can be proud of. He knows Chip Kelly’s system, he’s willing to throw the football and he is a Duck for life.
