Slingin' Quack: He Makes It Look So Easy

It's not entirely clear who had the bigger win over the last week, Oregon football or Oregon basketball.The Ducks and Adam trounced the USC secondary, the defense balled out, and the woeful Beavers are up next. Oregon's bowl opponent is in trouble.

Both Oregon football and Oregon basketball had big wins this last week.

Basketball beat Valparaiso, a tournament team last year, 73-67 at Matthew Knight Arena.  Shortly after beating Baylor, the Ducks have a couple of the best wins in the country thus far this season.  It is really exciting to have a team that is so clearly excelling this early and has a lot of promise.  Sean and I talk about the evolution of the offense, how overall impressive this team has been, and what to expect.

Oregon football made USC look bad.  Adams torched the USC defense worse than they ever have in the history of the school and Adams tied the single-game record for touchdown passes.  I have never seen a player more open than When Baylis caught a pass on a vertical route up the left hash.  The Oregon defense is really playing well and their game against USC is a real testament to that.  Sean and I talk about why our perspective on this season has been a little tainted and what this team provides that none in recent history have.

Lastly, Sean and I talk about possible bowl games.  The Rose Bowl is dependent on Stanford beating Notre Dame and squeezing into the playoffs.  Could Oregon still make a New Years' Six?  Also, I go on a huge rant about the college football rankings that the committee released.

Have a great Thanksgiving tomorrow.
