BP25- #19 Oregon Ducks

Well go to the closet and get the big shoes out per they are going to need to be filled. With The great Dennis Dixon gone and Johnathan Stewart now pushing DeAngelo Williams for PT it will be interesting to see what Oregon brings despite their Mad max uniforms. The caretakers for these two departed playmakers rest on the shoulders of Nathan Costa or Justin Roper(he slaughtered USF in the Sun Bowl)at QB and Jeremiah Johnson or JUCO LeGarrette Blount at RB. Obviously a downgrade, but with Jaison Williams and TE Ed Dickson it should ease the transition.

This team however posts one of the best secondaries in the NCAA led by Patrick Chung 7.5 tfl and that is from the safety position! Walter Thurmond and Jarius Bird round out the secondary with 33 pbu and 12 pix combined. They can literally make you one dimensional in a hurry. The schedule sends the Ducks to Purdue(which could be upset?) @ USC (Who have revenge on the mind), @ Arizona St(Revenge), @ California and round out the year @ Rival Oregon St. So as you can see it will be rough to improve on last year, but with this secondary it garners them a ranking!

I haven't seen Costa play yet, but there's no way he's up to Dennis Dixon standards.

Jeremiah Johnson on the other hand is about to make everybody forget about Jonathan Stewart. There will be no drop off in the running game.
