- Rob Moseley takes a look at the wide receivers, the unit that has the most questions coming into the season. However, they also have room for a lot of excitement. With a ton of young talent coming in this year, the Ducks figure to be as talented as they've been in years.
- Aaron Fentress has his look at the running backs, and also profiles Anthony Gildon. With Cliff Harris out at least one game, Gildon will need to be the leader of the corners early. He's got the physical tools to be an all-conference CB, but he only has one more season to make that happen.
- LSU has been mentioned recently in a list of teams that will regress. ESPN's Jeff Dooley (insider only) picks the Tigers as his SEC team that will regress. Also, gambling expert Chris Copeland was on last week's Solid Verbal, and talked about how LSU will struggle to match their win total last year. This shouldn't give Duck fans all that much reason for optimism. LSU can play with anyone in the country, but they are not a juggernaut.
- Taking a look at another Duck opponent, Duck Sports Authority previews USC. It's a good thing the Ducks have a ton of talent in the secondary, because USC has one of the most exciting passing attacks in the nation. With Matt Barkley, Robert Woods, and a slew of five-star talent, the Trojans will be able to put up yards on just about everyone.
- Matt Hinton has a preview of Pac-12 newcomer Colorado. I greatly enjoyed our podcast with the guys from the Ralphie Report a few weeks ago, and Colorado should be one of the more interesting to watch. They're not totally devoid of talent, and it will be interesting how they fare under their new coach. Unfortunately, they face one of the hardest schedules in the country.
- Lastly, Bill Connelly has a piece on home field advantage, and Oregon doesn't fare quite as well as many fans will assume. That's probably because they were undefeated on the road last year as well as at home.
That's it for now. Leave anything else you find in the comments. GO DUCKS!
