Before the Oregon Ducks' 2013 season began, it seemed the only major question was how the team would transition from Chip Kelly's regime to one led by former offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich.
Those who asked that question as well as those who used it as reasoning for why the team would regress probably feel foolish halfway through the season.
The Ducks are 6-0 and have passed every test with flying colors, including a 21-point win over a ranked Washington team in Seattle this past Saturday.
If you recall back to a much darker time known only as "the offseason", there were a lot of interesting topics to discuss pertaining to which players would develop and what the team would look like when the games started to play out.
Would Bralon Addison make a step forward? Would the line play be elite with so many quality athletes? Could the linebackers step up and fill the void left by Kiko Alonso and Michael Clay? How would De'Anthony Thomas fare as an every-down back?
There's a lot of football left and the meat of the schedule is upcoming, but many of the questions have been answered with authority.
Let's go position-by-position and hand out midseason grades for the No. 2 team in the country.
