It’s finally here! The Oregon Ducks will officially kick off their 2014 campaign Saturday against the South Dakota Coyotes. With the season finally within reach, it’s time to do what we do best: tap into our inner clairvoyant senses and make some bold predictions!
It’s tough to make "bold" predictions for the Ducks. Suggesting that Marcus Mariota may win the Heisman or that the Ducks will take home the national championship isn’t exactly like predicting lottery numbers. The Ducks are the third-ranked team in the nation, according to The Associated Press, while Mariota is considered to be one of the top three favorites to win the Heisman, according to every human being alive.
So let’s go out on a limb here and make some bold statements. I’m talking about “throw some water on your face because you’re dreaming” type of predictions.
Here are five bold predictions for Oregon’s 2014 season.
