QUACK BACK: Volume 4


With a final non-conference game against Missouri State, the Ducks head into Pac-12 play with confidence, but questions. With the season opening loss, most observers had considered the defensive performance to be a very good effort. The last two weeks, however, have seen the Ducks "D" susceptible to the run.

Nonetheless, after Missouri State marched down the field for a score, the Ducks answered with 56 consecutive points to dismantle the Bears.

Along the way, fans witnessed an Autzen Stadium record 90 yard touchdown run by the incomparable LaMichael James. James, now just a single rushing touchdown shy of tying Derek Loville for the career school record, put on a show for the hometown fans rushing for 204 yards on just 12 carries.

AJ Jacobson and John Copp share their thoughts on the performance with their Grades and Analysis. A very fair take on the overall performance Saturday.

Alex McDougall got some GREAT in-game photos take a look at the Oregon-Missouri Game Photos.

Oshay Dunmore

The Missouri State game saw a few more visitors, both official and unofficial as Brett Bafaro made another trip down for the game this time joined by Oshay Dunmore, Stephen Amoako, his twin brother Eric and standout 2013 Running Back Thomas Tyner. It appeared all enjoyed the atmosphere as they were very vocal after they returned home about how much they enjoyed their trip.

Check out the recap from Oshay Dunmore's official visit. As for the Amoako twins, Eric had this to say about his trip "I love Oregon though! Can't wait to live here!"

Recruiting is just starting to really pick up. The Ducks have 8 commitments already and the class is expected to be a full class of nearly 22-25 kids, stay tuned to Duck Sports Authority for all your recruiting news!


The Oregon Volleyball team moved to 9-1 on the season with a sweep over the weekend of Arizona and Arizona State taking Arizona out 3-0 and easing by Arizona State 3-1. The successes have taken the Ducks to #15 in the national rankings.
