It is easy to look at Oregon's impressive 72-0 win over New Mexico and see all the things that went well for the Ducks. However, the harder and more important aspect to look at is what can be learned from the season opener and what the Ducks need to work on based upon the victory.
Oregon was simply too fast, strong, athletic and experienced for the Lobos to ever have a shot at making the outcome respectable. We all should have expected a 72-0 outcome based upon Oregon's hype and their 2009 season and New Mexico's miserable 2009 campaign. But not all was confirmed on Saturday for the Ducks. A few loose ends are still dangling for the Ducks that must to be wrapped up.
