A return to the air — As dominant as the Oregon football offense has been the past few years, fans have continually had one complaint: The Ducks lack off a deep threat in the air.
Not since the Jeff Maehl Era has Oregon had a go-to wide receiver that defenses have had to account for in their game plan. Josh Huff has shown glimpses of being this playmaker; however, injuries and inconsistency have hindered his growth into this role.
New wide receivers’ coach Matt Lubick comes to Eugene in hopes of re-establishing the Ducks’ aerial attack, and he is no stranger to Oregon.
Singler possible POY candidate? — Oregon forward E.J. Singler has had quite the memorable senior season. Not only are the Ducks playing the best basketball in his tenure in Eugene, but the team will almost assuredly make the NCAA Tournament.
While he may not be the flashiest player in the Pac-12, his heart and basketball IQ are second to none — and for this reason, his name has popped up in the conference Player of the Year discussion.
The Register-Guard’s Bob Clark takes a look at Singler’s case for the accolade, and what Dominic Artis’ playing time coming up may look like.
Revis does not appear Bay bound — It appears as though the relationship between cornerback Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets is past the point of repair. The talented corner has made it no secret that he wants out of New York, and the team appears to be honoring his request, actively shopping him to others in the league.
One team that has come up in the rumor mill as a possible destination has been San Francisco. The 49ers are an incredibly talented squad fresh off a Super Bowl appearance but are in dire need of help in the secondary.
However, according to team sources, the likelihood that Revis is in the Bay Area for the 2013 season is quite low.
