    the sec is overrated- they all look great because sec offenses are so pedestrian, but texas a & m really exposed alabama, last week. i'd have loved to have seen the ducks play 'bama.

    stanford has a solid offense, and they play smash mouth, which plays right to the ducks' current injury problems. but if the ducks still run up a good score, it will answer a lot of questions.

    usc can be great one week and terrible the next, but the same is true of ucla. will be an interesting game, but i'd rather the ducks play a 2-loss ucla team. beating three straight ranked teams would lock the ducks in to the bcs top spot, and i think the ducks' offense would be a hot knife through butter, against k state.

      I wasn't referring to non-Pac12 D quality, necessarily, but their "qualities", if you will--they are usually bigger than most at the same speed under normal circumstances. (Against Ohio State and Auburn--and Wisky to a lesser extent) the O struggled to maintain any consistency until much later in the game than they need to be wholly effective. If we can score early, we'll be ok, but if not--especially if Stanford goes up by a score or two--we could get ground down and lose the clock before we're able to wear their D out. Having them at home should be a huge benefit, but I thought that about USC last year, too.
      "We." Because I play and/or coach for them, of course.
