Quack Fix: Ducks to start 3 freshman on the offensive line

Your daily dose for all things Oregon

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports


  • The Ducks' offseason spotlight has been on the QB position, but the offensive line will feature 3 redshirt freshman. Shane Lemieux, Jake Hanson and Calvin Throckmorton make their college debut this weekend against UC Davis.
  • Oregon is known as a track and field powerhouse, and after Duck success in the Olympics, the goal is to make sure Eugene is the center of the track universe.
  • Stanford's Christian McCaffrey and LSU's Leonard Fournette are considered two of the best RB's in the country, but the Ducks are biased towards their own star, Royce Freeman.
  • Oregon will face UC Davis on Saturday in the season opener for both teams, and it will be the first ever meeting between the two programs.
