The Oregon spring game is still a couple weeks away, but the excitement over the return of football in Autzen Stadium can be felt around the state.
But when the ball is kicked and green goes up against yellow (or whatever names they come up with for each side), what kind of things are fans supposed to be looking for?
Is a sack an indication of that player's talent or regression along the offensive line? Is an interception a great play by the defense, a poor throw by the quarterback or a bad route by the receiver?
