NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson tells you why the Oregon Ducks football program has a very good chance at going undefeated in their next season. The Ducks football program, in recent years, has been the figurehead of college football in the northwest and Pac-12. While an undefeated season is a lofty goal for any college football program, Oregon could realistically achieve this feat in 2013.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson details who he thinks will be the 2013 defensive starters for the Oregon Ducks football team. Losing seniors is tough, but when some of the top talent on your team, it gets even tougher. The absences of Michael Clay, Kiko Alonso, Dion Jordan, and Isaac Remington will surely be felt next year, especially with the four of them taking two valuable players from the defensive line and linebacking corps.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you his prediction of Oregon’s offensive starters in 2013. Though the Oregon Ducks’ 2013 college football campaign is still just about four months away, it’s time to start breaking down a team that could very well see themselves in the final BCS National Championship Game (thank the college football gods). Returning stars such as Marcus Mariota and De’Anthony Thomas obviously make it into the starting rotation but there are a few players who may be new to you.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the weaknesses on Oregon’s 2013 college football roster that could see them fall from the ranks of the college football elite. While the talent is already on the team and there is quite a lot of potential surrounding the Duck athletes, Oregon is lacking proven players on the defensive line and at linebacker.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the upcoming Oregon football spring camp that will begin on April 2. Coming off a year that saw them narrowly miss an opportunity to appear in the BCS National Championship game for the second time in three years–after suffering a loss to Stanford in overtime after the Cardinal tied it up on a controversial touchdown–and their second-straight BCS Bowl win, many may believe that the Oregon football program would be in a state of flux without Kelly.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson recaps what was Oregon’s 2012 college football regular season. The Ducks made their way to an 11-1 record fairly easily. They vanquished most of their opponents by the third quarter and only had close contests against USC and Stanford, one of which they lost. Their offense did not skip a beat with Marcus Mariota at the helm and De’Anthony Thomas and Kenjon Barner in the backfield.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Kenjon Barner’s Heisman chances. After the big victory that established the Ducks as the Pac-12 standard of excellence, Oregon has seen improved poll results and is now looking towards the big picture as they head down the final stretch of their season, next facing the California Golden Bears on Saturday.
Could be a Doozy To say that the Oregon Ducks are favorites heading into their contest with the Colorado Buffaloes would be an understatement. In fact, the Ducks are 47 point favorites heading into Saturday, opening up one of the biggest spreads we have seen this season. Matchup: Colorado at Oregon Venue: Autzen Stadium (Eugene, Oregon) Game [...]
NWSB Editor and Writer Chris Anderson brings you the news of Marcus Mariota being named the starting quarterback at the University of Oregon. After the surprise departure of Darron Thomas to the NFL draft, Bryan Bennett and Marcus Mariota were left to compete for one of the top jobs in college football. The two competed through spring, summer, and fall camps and made the decision a tough one for Head Coach Chip Kelly.
NWSB Editor and Writer preview Oregon’s new uniforms that are scheduled to arrive on August 22nd. As had been rumored, the 2012 set of new uniforms will closely resemble the same style that Oregon wore in the Rose Bowl; helmet and all. The first pictures of the new uniforms surfaced on nikeblog and have created a stir amongst the college football nation once again. Can’t wait to see Kenjon Barner sporting the new digs.
NWSB Writer Bryant Knox talks about how the Oregon Ducks may be flying under the radar in college football during their 2012 campaign. It’s possible that such a weak schedule early in the season benefits Oregon, but when it comes to being the favorites, nobody is likely to view the Ducks as proven late in the year following the first few weeks of competition.
NWSB Editor and Writer Chris Anderson predicts the statistics for the top Duck football performers in 2012. Though some schools have kicked off their fall camps, the Oregon Ducks will be kicking off camp on August 6th with big things planned for 2012. Ranked 5th in the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Ducks will be looking to compete for their fourth straight Pac-10/12 title. Stats for Kenjon Barner, Marcus Mariota, & De’Anthony Thomas.
