The 2015 football schedule is here. And it couldn't set up too much better for the post-Mariota world. Outside of a week 2 trip to Lansing, Michigan, the Ducks have a very manageable slate heading into the second half of October, allowing Lockie, Mahalak, or Waller to get comfortable leading the offense.
Outside of that, what an absolutely terrible slate of home games. I wouldn't be surprised to see the sellout streak ending next season.

The Mac and Mose Wyoming Review. I'll probably just keep linking to these videos every week, because they're worth watching.
- Long-time readers of ATQ will be very familiar with benzduck's historical work at ATQ and over at his site DuckDowns. Well, he might have outdone himself this time, with a spreadsheet of every Oregon game. Ever. So, go check that out, and reflect on how good we have it.
- Oregon's weekly game notes include the standard depth chart. Troy Hill is once again listed as a starter (though he didn't play against Wyoming), while Jake Fisher OR Matt Pierson are listed at LT. Unless things get out of control against WSU, I'm not expecting either to play.
- Speaking of Pierson, Matt Prehm has a (free) article on his journey to playing left tackle at Oregon. Pierson started out playing basketball as Jesuit High, but didn't have the weight to play football, until he put on 60 pounds between his junior and senior year. This led Coach Greatwood to believe he had some potential, and a few years later, the walk-on is (likely) Oregon's starting LT.
