Kostecka: No natty? The Ducks got what they deserved this season

By on Friday, Dec. 6 at 8:37 am.

Christmas came early for De’Anthony Thomas. A week after Thomas stated that the Rose Bowl “feels like whatever,” he will get what he wants when he plays in a sub-par bowl, something he’s never done while wearing green and yellow.

Mark Helfrich prefers taking blame after losses and giving credit to Oregon’s players after wins

By on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 7:09 pm.

Mark Helfrich entered Arizona Stadium’s press room after the Saturday’s game with a demeanor one would expect from a coach whose team just lost by 26 points in a game it was expected to win.
