Athlon Sports Prediction for Oregon-Cal...Interesting.

Recommended Posts

I have been impressed with the Athlon pre-game analyses, and their comment about the Cal pass rush might raise some eyebrows.  And I personally think we are quite lucky to have Jamal Hill to replace Bennett Williams, as we will be just fine at that spot.  I worry more about our linebackers and defensive line.  Thoughts?

A Justin Wilcox coached Cal team with an experienced D and QB in Eugene is dangerous.  
 

With Thibideax out for the first half, we can expect to see an aggressive Cal passing attack with Garbers flinging it wide and deep.

 

Call will load the box and press Duck receivers, daring Brown to beat them with reads and decisions.


This is a tough game to pick.  I typically go with the best coach and QB combination, so possibly an edge to Cal.  
 

Overall talent favors the Ducks, but experience favors Cal.  
 

I expect a physical game with lots of penalties called.  Hopefully some are against Cal.

 

Ducks need to keep it close in the first half, then win with adjustments in the second half.

 

Can Cristobal adjust?  Will his coaches be allowed to do their jobs?

 

I see the Ducks winning a close game.  I don’t know if Brown is the winning QB.

What do I think? 1st, it doesn't really matter what I think?

 

But I have bet the over 55.5 so, and not trying to jump the gun on the guess the final score question, I see Ducks 38, CAL 24.

Cal is 1-4 for a reason.  

 

If the Ducks don't slaughter the Golden Bears, I'd be surprised.  This IS a payback game btw, and Cal had no business hanging around last year.  

 

AB needs to read run "options" accurately and just toss the ball to open WRs. 

 

Our Defense?  Good enough to shut Cal out.  But they won't.  So the world will turn... In the days of our lives ( non Boomers will not get that reference).  

 

This Duck team is leaving SO MUCH FOOD ON THE TABLE.  Aren't they hungry?
