What a performance, huh? LaMichael James ran wild for 288 yards in Oregon's 56-31 victory against Arizona. More impressive is the fact that he also had 363 all-purpose yards, and both are new school records. It has also continued the chatter that this might the best back to ever wear a Duck uniform.
With nonconference play over, the Ducks face off with an Arizona team that is coming off back-to-back losses.
LaMichael impresses (again), your humble editor moves on from a mistake, and why the Ducks will continue to roll this weekend.
Now a full-time starter, the senior cornerback's confidence is at an all-time high.
After being part of a frustrating play in the BCS game, the senior rover said the Ducks are game-ready.
After months of hype, Oregon will finally face LSU in Dallas on Sunday. This really is a big game, and it's not so much because who wins. Both teams are ranked highly enough that a loss in this one, won't necessarily be out of the running. Rather, it's a chance to see just how good Oregon and LSU really are in the early point of the season.
Football season is indeed around the corner and there's plenty to look forward to.
Certainly, the fact that Oregon was coming off a 2010 season that ended with a BCS appearance had something to do with the high turnout. But several special ceremonies also contributed the high volume of energetic attendees.
