The Oregon offense is looking at, and preparing for, opposing defenses to load up against the run while playing defense in response to the loss of Justin Herbert for the next 4 - 7 weeks.

Fentress argues that Burmeister is the answer for the ducks in response to the loss of Herbert. The argument is essentially that Alie has no shown himself to be a pac-12 caliber QB, and that taking a chance on upside is the best option.

It’s hate week for women’s soccer as both of the Washington schools come to Eugene. The ducks play Wazzu on Thursday and Uw (booo) on Friday. The Ducks opened conference play on the road for three straight and lost all three.

Yesterdays practice report is up. The focus is on Blake Rugraff, the former 3rd string LB that will likely be starting this week against WSU in the wake of injuries. Similar to our potential QB starter.
