Ruining the Season: An Arizona Specialty

Attending the Civil War volleyball made for an exciting evening. Oregon was undefeated and the Beavers had a record of 10 and 1.

Recruiting Update: Murray Still in Play?

Football Recruiting News Around four months ago, I had a conversation with an Oregon fan who’s very much in the know.

Surviving Pullman on ‘Struggling Saturday’

  This is what we wanted, right? The Oregon fan’s burden has always been that there will never be enough respect for the Ducks: that the offense is a gimmick, that their schedule isn’t tough enough, largely due to playing in an underwhelming conference. They’re told the Pac-12 isn’t anywhere near as good as the mighty SEC, winner of seven …

What We Learned: The Marcus Formula

The Concept of Tempered Steel If you aren’t a huge science guy (I for one am not), you might mistake the process of tempering steel for hardening a metal. While increasing steel’s strength, tempering is actually all about softening a metal through the use of heat to make it more flexible. In season three of Oregon’s best quarterback in school …
