Why The 2016 Oregon Ducks’ Offense Will, Once Again, Dominate The Pac-12

The Oregon Ducks’ offense should be one of the most potent offenses in the Pac-12 this season as long as they stay healthy. In years past, there has been a key piece missing for the offense; a tight end, running back, quarterback or receiver away from the offense being elite on the air and ground. […]

Technology And The University Of Oregon’s New Track And Field Plans

One of the University of Oregon’s most significant structures is about to get a facelift.  Starting this fall, after hosting its sixth United States Olympic Track and Field Team Trials, Oregon’s Hayward Field will be undergoing a massive renovation project.  Why the need for this upgrade?

Laremy Tunsil Is Not An Ole Miss Problem, He’s An NCAA Epidemic

Yes, it appears Laremy Tunsil smokes pot.  Yes again, it also appears he had an ongoing agreement with the University Of Mississippi football program for “financial aid” regarding his mother’s living arrangement.  But, regardless of the illegality of both (either from a legal or NCAA perspective), this is not an isolated incident of a player […]

A One Seed?! Just Who Are These Oregon Ducks?

If you haven’t watched much college basketball this season, you may have been surprised when the NCAA announced this year’s NCAA tournament bracket on Sunday and awarded the University of Oregon a one seed in the West Region.

March Madness – Can Northwest Teams Represent?

As a born and bred Indiana Hoosier, I have watched the NCAA Tournament Selection show every year since 1988.  I’ve been hooked on basketball from my freshman year of college when Indiana won its last championship, and I’ve been holding out for a hero ever since (Steve Alford, it’s Bloomington calling on Line 2).  And […]

The Mega, All-Everything 2016 NCAA Tournament Preview

But first a word on the Selection Committee. They blew it. In spectacular fashion. Joe Lunardi can tell you exactly how here. All I’ll say is that I’ve watched about a week’s worth of college basketball this year and the inclusion of Tulsa is offensive even to me. In picking the likes of Syracuse, Vanderbilt, […]


Gonzaga Bulldogs And The Oregon Connection

It wasn’t as easy or inevitable as in recent years, but the Gonzaga Bulldogs are headed back to the NCAA Tournament, and they have every potential opponent exactly where they want them; as favorites. But, if the Bulldogs are to make a deep run this year, it could be because of a couple Oregon connections. […]

The Unexpected Retirement Of Thomas Tyner

On a brisk September night just three and a half years ago, consensus five-star Aloha High School running back Thomas Tyner dashed into the Oregon high school record books, darting and juking his way through a porous Lakeridge High School defense, brutally punishing defenders when necessary, ultimately gaining 643 yards on the ground while scampering […]

Oregon Ducks 2016 National Signing Day Primer

While recruiting rankings are hardly an exact science, talent (and, thus, recruiting) is the lifeblood of a program. And, that makes National Signing Day one of the sneaky most important days of the year for college football fans.

Chip Kelly’s Greatest Challenge

Sooner or later, Chip Kelly is going to get another NFL head coaching job. And it might sooner. Kelly is the odds-on favorite to land the San Francisco 49ers opening, and two other teams that Kelly has negotiated with in the past – Cleveland and Tampa Bay – are looking for coaches as well. Considering […]


In The Wake Of Oregon’s Debacle, I Investigate Who And What’s Responsible For The Truly Embarrassing Night In San Antonio

It was disgusting. Somewhere…well, actually in many places, there are psychoanalytical professionals due to make a fist full of money from Oregon fans desperate to recover from the experience that was the second half of last Saturday night’s Alamo Bowl. The Ducks parlayed a dominating 31-point halftime lead, into a triple-overtime loss to a team […]
