TUESDAY BRIEFING: Inside the Bye Week, Helfrich Emphasizing Increased Teaching and Continued Improvement in All Phases

It’s been a common theme in the way Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich approaches each of his teams practice sessions.

Work hard and strive to improve every day in every phase of the game.

It’s that mantra that gives his team and his program the consistency and recipe for success.

As Oregon ( 4-3 / 2-2 ) enter their bye week, it’s that exact recipe that Helfrich and his staff are using to begin preparations for their Thursday match-up with Arizona State in Tempe.

“This week for us is a little bit different than maybe a bye week last year or the year before” explained Helfrich when asked how he plans to use this extra time to prepare.

“There’s still so much,..just basic teaching that’s taking place from a bunch of standpoints,… with young guys and situational work that comes out of games.  So, a little bit more split work right now than we’ve done in the past as far as everybody getting a bunch of work rather than just the scout teams and quote – unquote reserve guys getting the lions share.”

Although the Ducks haven’t had the start to the season they expected, they remain focused on the task at hand and continue to ignore the outside noise of pundits and fans calling for change.

“The biggest thing right now is we’re improving in all phases and hopefully that’s the goal regardless of your record,” Helfrich said.

“Trying to overcome all the hyperbole out there of whether the world’s coming to an end or whether you’re the greatest team ever.   Continuing to work,… continuing to improve and again,… for the most part, our guys are doing that.”
