The Point After: Week Fourteen

The Point After: Week Fourteen

When anyone buys a brand new car and expects to keep that car for a number of years, it takes some time to know all the ins and outs of that car. Over time, one slowly figures out what kind of terrain that car does well in or how many miles you can go with […]

The Point After: Week Thirteen

The Point After: Week Thirteen

The Rose Bowl is a disappointment. Just let that sentence sink in for a second. There has been some talk between Duck fans and even some of the Duck football players that another appearance in the Granddaddy of them All would be a disappointment for the football program. Oregon doesn’t want to be the first […]

The Point After: Week Twelve

If there’s one thing the Stanford game taught us is that in sports, there’s no such thing … as a sure thing. Before the game at Stanford, everyone was about to give Marcus Mariota the Heisman Trophy and book tickets to Pasadena with a date with the Tide. This was going to be the year […]

The Point After: Week Ten

Oregon football is in a sad state of affairs. It took Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday to throw 89 times and 559 yards for anyone to talk about the Duck defense. Coupled with Nick Aliotti’s controversial comments about Cougars coach Mike Leach leaving in his starters for the entire game, the Oregon defense finally got […]

The Point After: Week Nine

My birthday is July 31, which happens to be the date of the baseball trade deadline where teams can trade freely without putting a players through waivers first. For my 19th birthday, my team, the Atlanta Braves, gave me a birthday present a few days before that is still one of the greatest gifts of […]

The Point After: Week Eight

The Point After: Week Eight

Two things emerged after Oregon went into Seattle and defeated the then No. 16 Washington Huskies 45-24. The Ducks are true national title contenders and Marcus Mariota is the best player in the country and is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy. People close to the program and those who cover the Ducks on […]

The Point After: Week Seven

The Point After: Week Seven

Now the real begins. In what equaled a spring training schedule for the Ducks, it’s now time to see if Oregon is truly the No. 2 team in the nation starting Saturday at the newly remodeled Husky Stadium. In the first five games, the opposition has been mediocre at best. Tennessee showed that they might […]

The Point After: Week Six

The Point After: Week Six

11-of-25 passing for a measly 114 yards and two touchdowns. Let’s face it. Marcus Mariota’s stat line from the Cal game isn’t going to impress any Heisman voters or even the most devout Duck fan. But his performance Saturday may have been the Flyin’ Hawai’ian’s best performance of his Duck career. And if you want […]

The Point After: Week Four

Pages and pages have been written about the Oregon offense in the past several years, including this year. The Duck offense under Chip Kelly and now Mark Helfrich, has been prolific and all the praise that has been laid out for that unit is well deserved. This offense that Kelly introduced in 2007 and seems […]

The Point After: Week Three

A betting line came out this week that had Alabama favoring by 6.5 over Oregon should the two teams play in the BCS title game in Pasadena. As Coach Lee Corso would say holding a pencil in front of him, “Not so fast my friend!” It’s just Week 3 and there is a lot of […]

Ducks Snap Skid, Upend ASU 54-35

Just when you thought the Duck defense was going to give up another touchdown, safety Tyree Robinson had other plans. It’s been a rough season for the Oregon defenders to say the least, but Robinson’s 84-yard interception return set up the Ducks final touchdown and sealed a big 54-35 win over Arizona State Saturday night […]
