Ifo’s All-American Civil War Performance

I have to depart from my usual analysis to give credit to Ifo and look at some of his great plays in the Civil War game. There were more highlights of him than I had room to list, but it was still interesting to look at a couple of plays closely.

How Oregon Protects Mariota with New Play Variations!

It’s fun to learn some new things about our beloved Ducks, and some football as played by other teams at the same time with some play variations and strategies to protect our QB. Read/watch there and discuss here as usual as I’m curious from others--will they run these in the Bowl Game?

Learning from Oregon’s Civil War Passing Attack

This week we have help from Coach Brian Flinn again as he educates us a bit in three areas that helps us as fans enjoy things more. Learning more about the Duck’s passing game, and understanding a little more of how defenses work is a priority of mine going forward. Read over there and discuss here as I would be curious if other coaches have a different name or variation of this play?

Oregon has an "Open-Gap" Zone Read!

This is a new variation to open up the opportunities for the RB to select the gap available, AND puts more pressure on the entire defensive front seven of the opponent. If we want to learn—we can, and even from a loss. As always, read over there & discuss here, as I am interested in your thoughts as to whether this will become THE Inside Zone Read play of the future, or if it will continue to just be an option?

Oregon Devises an Inside Zone Read "Counter" Play!

Finally! Many of us have wondered for years if we would see the Counter play back in the Oregon arsenal, and on Saturday we got to view it in action. Read over there, but discuss here and I would be interested in what some of you think of the play, it’s potential, and how often we’ll see it. Fun stuff.

Myths of a Stanford Victory

What would I have done with the DVR recording prior to two years ago? I would have deleted that game immediately or not watched it again for 8-9 months. Things are different now and I had to spend a bunch of time over the weekend slugging through the game to look for things other media sources are not reporting. What struck me instead were some common narratives showing up on Oregon message boards that my examination of the game did NOT confirm. Parts of my interpretation were just confirmed in an Oregon News Conference yesterday, but it took four days (while I was writing about it) for that to materialize.

Analyzing Stanford: What to Watch for as a Fan

Here are some points to watch for as fans that are not difficult for us to see. Read over there and discuss here; do you have any major points to add that the major media has missed?

Oregon’s Superior Defensive Techniques School the Bruins

What is the best way to learn pass rushing moves? Watch our beloved Ducks do them and learn the techniques as I did! It is great fun to see the growth of our defensive linemen who learned these moves from Jerry Azzinaro (now with the Eagles) and current defensive line coach Ron Aiken. We’ll see these moves again!

Bama. Who wants 'em?

If we get there, who would you rather play, Bama or FSU?

New Oregon Strategies Reveal Old Secrets

I am always quite curious, and sometimes apprehensive about what I’m going to find in a game to report to you. What if the staff decides they will do nothing new or different? What do I report on then? I was feeling that this week until I got through the game and noted not just some new things, but some startling new strategies.
