Willie Bee -
Depending on whether you're a glass half-full or glass
half-empty individual, Mark Helfrich's first season as Oregon Ducks head coach
was either mildly successful or a bit of a failure. An 11-2 record might normally indicate the
former, but when expectations run as high as they do in Eugene, the latter can also be true.
Expectations will once again be lofty for the Ducks in 2014 with
the Ducks among the favorites to advance to the NCAA gridiron version of the
Final Four. Current college football
futures odds range from 6/1 to 9/1 at most offshore sports books for the Ducks
to take home their first-ever National Championship.
