The Ducks made an impressive showing when the Pac-12 awards were announced, including another Duck winning the freshman offensive player of the year. But, with 2012 regular season over, some are beginning to look at 2013.
That was a pretty satisfying victory over the Beavers on Saturday. I am looking forward to seeing this team play together one last time. Other than that, there's not a lof of quack on the first Tuesday following the end of Oregon's regular season. Then again, it's not like anyone reads the links anyways.
- The Pac-12 awards were announced yesterday with several Ducks earning honors. Not only was Marcus Mariota named the offensive freshman of the year (the the third time in the last four years an Oregon player has earned that honor) but he was also named the first-team quarterback. Kenjon Barner, Hroniss Grasu, Dion Jordan, Ifo Ekpre-Olomu joined Mariota on the first team while Michael Clay and Kiko Alonso were named to the second team.
- Adam Jude has a story on the Chip-to-the-NFL rumors and their potential impact on recruits. I'm really excited about reading these rumors for the next month or two. Can't wait.
- Ready to start thinking about 2013? Ted Miller looks at how the conference schedule rotates next season. Utah and UCLA will replace Arizona State and USC on the Oregon schedule.
- Discounting any potential juniors leaving for the NFL draft this year, Bob Clark takes a quick look at how many starters each school will expect to return next season. Oregon should be returning eight on offense and seven on defense.
And, that's all I could find. Please add anything of interest that you might find to the comments.
