Yahoo Sports: Pac 12 At a Glance Highlights Two Ducks


Pat Forde takes a look at the Pac 12 for the upcoming season is a slideshow style presentation that includes several Ducks.  The first is Best Offensive Player  and Oregon Quarterback Marcus Mariota tops the list.

As you click through the other 14 parts of the Pac 12 puzzle, Oregon also makes appearances for Best Assistant Coach(Nick Aliotti), and Biggest League Game(Oregon vs Stanford, November 7th). Also on the list The Rose Bowl as the Best Stadium – it’s nice to know there will be two BCS Bowl games played there in 2014.

Forde also gets a gold star from me for listing Lane Kiffin(USC) for being the coach most likely to visit the Psychiatrist’s couch. The Best Tailgate Scene in the Pac 12 – Washington….really? I don’t think anything beats a Tailgate at Autzen – and I know many will back me up on that. We’re getting close, Oregon and Nicholls State take the field on August 31st. (1pm, Fox Sports 1)
