Slingin' Quack: We Did It!

We had a huge week in Oregon sports. Oregon beat Oregon State in the 119th Civil War Game. They looked great in the first half and terrible in the second half. Scott Frost left for UCF after leading the #2 offense the last three years.

Oregon beat Oregon State in the 119th Civil War game.  The first half saw Oregon's defense absolutely control the Oregon State offense, outside of the first drive.  The second half saw the Oregon defense completely check out of the game mentally and give up an embarrassing amount of success to the Beavers.

Scott Frost has left his role as offensive coordinator to take over the head coaching role at the University of Central Florida (UCF), that went nearly unbeaten with Blake Bortles and dropped to a winless record this past season.  I think this is a great opportunity for him to succeed.  I've heard that UCF's fan base is willing to start spending more money on the football program.  He's killed it at Oregon the last few years, leading the #2 offense in the country, and if not for maybe bad play calls in the teens he would be viewed in a much more positive light.

The basketball team is still undefeated heading into a game at UNLV.  It's technically a neutral site game, but it is at the MGM Grand, which is in Vegas.  But then again, I'm not sure UNLV really has a home court.  After the game against UNLV the Ducks play Navy at Pearl Harbor.
