The Oregon Ducks will be heading into the 2012 season with a lot of hype surrounding a team that could contend for a BCS National Championship.
They are currently ranked No. 5 in the preseason USA Today Sports Coaches' Poll and are favored to win the North Division of the Pac-12 Conference. Though USC is predicted to win the Pac-12 Championship, Ducks fans can rest assured that their team will be right in the thick of things and ready to prove that they are the true kings of the Pac-12.
Oregon has won three straight conference titles behind one of the more potent offenses in the nation, an offense that has put up gaudy numbers and elevated the Ducks into national prominence. Their defense has played with a bend-but-don't-break kind of attitude and should be one of the best defensive units in the Pac-12 in 2012.
Despite all the accolades and hype the program is receiving during the preseason, there are still some issues the Ducks will need to iron out if they want to have a shot at yet another conference championship.
With fall camp officially starting yesterday, here are the things Oregon needs to improve upon in these next 22 days.
