Ducks With Hangover?

We all saw what happened to Stanford after their physical, grinding game against Washington. Oregon didn’t have to play the same grind all the way through the 4th, but it is the first time they’ve had to actually play an entire game.

Also of note, it looks to me like the Huskies play some of the most physical football in the conference and Oregon came out of last week with a lot of dings to a lot of players.

So obviously this can go one of two ways, UO could get healthy fast because they’ve not had to play much, be fresh and ready to go a full game again. Or they could be a little sore a little longer this week and have that slow start that never really get’s going the way they’re used to.

Here’s to hoping it’s the ladder.
