Aarghh. It's still 10 days to go until the Fiesta Bowl. What are we supposed to do while we wait for the Oregon Ducks vs. Kansas State matchup?
Start dreaming and planning for next season, of course. One can only drink so much eggnog with the relatives.
While this exciting and successful season for the Ducks (11-1) still has one big game remaining, there are all sorts of interesting things on the horizon.
Will Chip Kelly leave for the NFL? Will Mark Helfrich be handed the keys if Kelly leaves? Or will Oregon, as mandated by state law, interview a minority candidate like Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin or Jon Gruden (there must be a Chucky minority category.)
That's an article for another day.
Will the NCAA bring the hammer down? Will players leave Oregon early for the NFL or just transfer to another school?
Lots of questions, which makes this assignment intriguing. Without the benefit of a crystal ball, here are projections for what the Ducks' offense might look like when they first take the field on August 31, 2013 against the Nicholls State Colonels.
Projected starters are in bold type.
