Coach Woody Analysis: Run Game Evolution and Opportunistic Defense Stun Utes

Coach Ken Woody Coach Woody's Analysis 76 Comments

In only his second year at the helm, coach Mario Cristobal was able to clutch the Pac-12 championship trophy and smell roses two weeks after ingesting the smell of manure and getting knocked out of national championship contention by Arizona State.

Oregon won the Civil War 24-10 to give coach Mario Cristobal a fine 10-2 record, but left a majority of Duck fans with less than celestial euphoria.

Oregon’s Offensive Woes Start at the Top

Darren Perkins Editorials 152 Comments

It’s amazing how a coach who puts such an emphasis on being “tough” can trot out an offense that’s so weak. We get it, Coach Mario Cristobal. You want to control the ball, control the clock, dominate the line of scrimmage, and run vertically between the tackles. This is great when it works, but when it doesn’t, you simply look …
