As with Arizona, the Bears are a scary group to face because of their never say die attitude and ability to strike from any part of the field. Logic dictates that the Ducks should romp to victory, but as the game against the Wildcats evidenced, Oregon can be beat if they don’t jump on such offenses early.
The game will again come down to who wins it in the trenches on the field. The push off the line will be key and again, will be one of the things I will be watching. I fully expect Oregon to take control early and get off to a fast start, similar to what they did against Washington and UCLA the last two weeks.
Following the game, the storyline was Freeman. The freshman is playing, well, not freshman-like. He is responsible for eleven touchdowns this season for Oregon and is second on the team next to Marcus Mariota with nineteen. The Oregon Quarterback has also not thrown an interception this season for Oregon. With the win the Ducks moved up in the polls.
What an awesome victory for the Oregon Duck football team. The weather was perfect the entire game and the Ducks played well. There was much walking down memory lane at various points during the game.
The game gave me plenty of opportunity to shoot hi-speed action. It was definitely a loud game, one of the loudest yet for me. Even with that distraction, I was able to stay focused on testing my new gear.
If Oregon had the lead back in 1994 before the interception, would the play be remembered the same way? If it wasn’t, what play would be in it’s place to last for twenty years?
The Oregon Ducks are once again back home at Autzen Stadium in Eugene this weekend for the visit of the Washington Huskies (5-1, 1-1 Pac-12) who could represent a strong challenge to the hosts. Under first year head coach Chris Petersen, hired away from Boise State, the Huskies have one of the most, if not […]
This was my second water polo match to shoot. I had just finished the Sheldon girls match and stayed to take photos of the boys match. The boys play a bit faster and shoot the ball harder. Both goalies were kept pretty busy the entire match.
You have to turn the calendar back to 2003 to find the last time that Washington won a game against the Oregon Ducks. Of course, then it was different. Different Coach, Different Offense, an a Different time. It was the year Saddam Hussein was captured, gas prices hit a record high that March of, get this, $1.72(I miss those days now). If that isn’t mind blowing enough think of where Oregon Ducks Quarterback Marcus Mariota was eleven years ago.
This was my first attempt to photograph a water polo game. I found the game interesting to watch and to photograph. Like any other sport, it helps to understand the basics of the sport.
