One thing we can all agree on is the lack of exposure due to the time zone difference with Oregon, but are they really the real deal?
I've watched the "gameplan" portion of the Roses but have yet to see the second half. One thing I've noticed is the reliance on the option. Maybe I'm late because I never watch them, but I assumed there would be more pass. Once the defense commits an extra man or two to the option, Mariota then is able to find open guys or throw screens with blockers. It seems to be only option, pass, screen. Am I wrong?
Defense is laughable but Oregon will move the ball. I think Oregon will have ~100 yds rushing and only ~150 passing. We just really need to attack at the LOS. Mariota also gets uneasy when the pressure is real. I saw more incompletions/overthrows against a pass rush than I expected.
