Team preview: Oregon
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college football season, exclusively on Insider.
But expectations are different at Oregon now and the Ducks weren't exactly thrilled with their 8-5 record last season, especially considering they were blown out by Washington State, Arizona State and Washington.
After winning back-to-back Pac-10 titles in 2000 and 2001, their last two seasons (Oregon was 7-6 in '02) can best be described with one word: Mediocre. At least by the program's recent standards.
