Buying Into The Mark Helfrich Oregon Ducks Era

A lot of things come to mind when you think of Chip Kelly and his Oregon Ducks teams.

Brian Hight’s Week Two NFL Picks

Wow! Week one was brutal. My record against the spread last week was an abysmal 5-11. Of the early games on Sunday, four flipped on me in the last minutes, none more crushing than the 17 yard fumble recovery for a touchdown that put Philadelphia 17 ahead of Jacksonville with 1:23 to go in the […]
