College Gameday and Saturday Game Open Thread


The Ducks are headed to the Rose Bowl, and one of the best things to come from a game on Friday night is that there is still a full day of college football on Saturday. College Gameday is at the...

It's Civil War week and I couldn't be happier to play the Beavers, but my heart is heavy knowing this is also the last week of regular season college football.  Part of me wishes Oregon could...

Oregon Blitz Packages Against Stanford


I diagram the successful stunt and blitz plays Oregon ran against Stanford and talk about why they are so effective.

Oregon's offense against Stanford broken down.


Against Stanford we saw Oregon adjust their offense to a common technique to stopping the zone read. I go through a new rushing play and how it protects DT, and a staple passing play is broken down in its entirety with diagrams.


College Gameday/Saturday Games Open Thread

Oh yeah! Stanford Yeah!  College Gameday is broadcasting from The Farm (trivia: why is it called the farm?) and Penn State dominates the first five minutes (with reason).  Here's my preview for the...

It's probably much warmer in Los Angeles right now for College Gameday than it was in Eugene a few weeks ago.  Although the Gameday crew apparently had to coerce people to come with food.  Wusses. H...

Analytical look at X's and O's of WSU offense


I was watching the Washington State - OSU game and saw that the Cougars were doing some really cool things with their offense. In this post I look at the x's and o's of their base plays (at least what i could do with bad camera angles) and wrote about all the options they create on offense. Photos and diagrams are provided. Included is that full house/diamond formation and the early motion by running backs that have Oregon has had troubles stopping consistently.
