The Oregon Ducks football program is the intercollegiate American football team for the University of Oregon located in the U.S. state of Oregon. The team competes at the NCAA Division I level in the Football Bowl Subdivision and is a member of the Pacific-12 Conference. Known as the Ducks, the team was commonly called the Webfoots until the mid-1960s. Oregon's first football team was fielded in 1894. The team plays its home games at the 54,000 seat Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon. The team's main rivals are the Oregon State Beavers and the Washington Huskies. The Ducks and Beavers end each regular season by playing each other in the Civil War. Chip Kelly is the Ducks' current head coach.

HistoryEdit

Early yearsEdit

UO1917RoseBowlTeam

University of Oregon 1917 football team

The football program began in 1893 and played its first game on March 24, 1894, six months before the season started, defeating Albany College 44–2 under head coach Cal Young.[1][2][3] Cal Young left after that first game and J.A. Church took over the coaching position for the rest of the season. Oregon then finished the season with two additional losses and a tie, but went undefeated the following season, winning all four of its games under head coach Percy Benson.[2][3][4] In 1899, the football team left the state for the first time, playing the California Golden Bears in Berkeley, California.[1] Oregon's largest margin of victory came in 1910 when they defeated the University of Puget Sound 115–0.[5]

In the 1916 season, Oregon went undefeated with five wins and one tie under head coach Hugo Bezdek, shutting out all their opponents except California. They opened the season against Willamette University, defeating them 97–0. The game against Washington ended in a 0–0 tie. The tiebreaker for the Pacific Coast Conference went to Washington due to Oregon's use of ineligible players[6][7] but Oregon was given the invitation to the Tournament East-West Football Game at Tournament Park (moved to the Rose Bowl in 1923) due the cost of a train ticket to Los Angeles being significantly less from Eugene than from Seattle.[8] The Oregon football team defeated the heavily favored University of Pennsylvania Quakers 14–0, securing their first and only Rose Bowl victory[5]

Playing at newly constructed Hayward Field, which would be their home field until 1967, the Webfoots returned to the Rose Bowl at the end of the 1919 season, losing to Harvard University 6–7.[9] This would be the team's last bowl appearance until the 1948 Cotton Bowl.[9][10][11]

Between World WarsEdit

The late 1920s and early 1930s saw the first attempts by Oregon to establish a nationally prominent football program by hiring established Eastern coaches, first John “Cap” McEwan in 1926 (Army), then Clarence “Doc” Spears from Minnesota in 1930. Both coaches saw moderate success, but McEwan resigned amid a contract dispute; Spears left after two seasons to return to the Western Conference at Wisconsin.

Prince G. "Prink” Callison, Oregon native, alumnus, former player and coach of the freshman team, took over from Spears in 1932. Behind standout back Mike Mikulak and a smothering defense (50 points allowed, five shutouts), Callison led the 1933 Webfoots to a 9–1 mark and Pacific Coast Conference co-championship, with the only loss to USC. This record would stand as the best in school history until 2001.[12]

After the homegrown Callison retired in 1937, Oregon resumed its habit of poaching coaches from other teams, pulling Gerald “Tex” Oliver from Arizona. Oliver coached the team into and after World War II, posting a mediocre 23–28–3 record; his 71–7 loss at Texas in 1941 – the day before Pearl Harbor—stands as the most points allowed by any Oregon team and the second largest margin of defeat. Oliver is the only coach to see his team lose twice to Oregon State in the same season (1945).[13]

Modern eraEdit

Oliver was sacked in 1947 and replaced by another working head coach, Jim Aiken of Nevada. Aiken saw immediate success with the team he inherited, which like many post-war squads was peppered with war veterans, including Brad Ecklund, Jake Leicht and Norm Van Brocklin, and transfers George Bell and Woodley Lewis. Oregon’s 1948 team tied with California for the PCC championship; the teams never met on the field and in a secret ballot by the conference presidents, Cal was awarded the Rose Bowl bid.[14] In a bid to sooth hurt feelings, the conference broke tradition and allowed the Webfoots to play in a post-season contest other than the Rose Bowl. Oregon’s Cotton Bowl game that season (a 21–13 loss to SMU) was the team’s only bowl appearance between the 1920 and 1958 Rose Bowls.

Aiken couldn’t maintain his success with younger players; by his fourth season, the Ducks were one of the nation’s worst major college teams, posting a 1–9 record in 1950, still the lowest winning percentage in school history as of 2011.[12] Aiken resigned amid allegations of recruiting and practice violations in early 1951.[15]

Len Casanova and Jerry Frei erasEdit

Everything that Oregon athletics is today, it owes to Len Casanova. He has been the pillar, the strength and the inspiration for our program for over 50 years.

—Bill Moos, [16]

Once again, Oregon found a working major college coach to take over its program, hiring Len Casanova from the University of Pittsburgh after Aiken's resignation.[17] Casanova eventually led the Ducks to a winning record in 1954 then led the team to a 10–7 loss against number one ranked Ohio State University in the Rose Bowl.[16][17] During his tenure, he would lead the Ducks to two more bowl games before becoming the second athletic director for the Oregon Ducks in January 1967, replacing Leo Harris.[1][16][17] Future NFL Hall of Fame members Mel Renfro and Dave Wilcox were players under his tutelage. Many of his assistant coaches such as George Seifert, John McKay, and John Robinson went on to have their own successful coaching careers.[16] He ended his Oregon head coaching career with a record of 82–73–8, the highest number of wins recorded by a head coach at the university at that time.[17] The Oregon athletic center, Len Casanova Center, is named in his honor[16] and has received lofty praise from his successors such as Bill Moos and Mike Bellotti.

Assistant coach Jerry Frei became head coach after Len Casanova moved on to athletic director in 1966.[16][18] Although he never made it to a bowl game and did not end his Oregon career with a winning record, he coached several players who went on to NFL stardom, including Hall of Fame member Dan Fouts.[19] In 1970, he coached the Ducks to an improbable comeback at UCLA, scoring 20 points in the final four minutes of the game to beat UCLA 41–40.[20] However, Frei was unable to defeat arch-rival Oregon State, and after the 1971 loss some influential boosters reportedly were demanding that he either hire new assistants or resign.[21]

Two months after the 1971 season, Jerry Frei resigned, citing disagreements between him, university boosters, and the athletic director Norv Ritchey.[18][19] Following his resignation, the student body president at the time, as well as numerous published letters to the editor of the Register Guard voiced their support of Frei.[18]

Dick Enright and Don Read eras Edit

Frei’s assistant coach, Dick Enright, was elevated to head coach for the 1972 season. Enright struggled to maintain team discipline and consistent play; he famously tried to make an option quarterback out of Dan Fouts, who was not a runner.[22] Although his 1972 team did beat Oregon State for the first time since 1963, Enright’s teams only won six games in two seasons. After complaining to the media about what he considered sub-standard conditions of football facilities,[23] he was sacked after the 1973 season, replaced by Don Read, his quarterback coach.[21]

Although he possessed a great offensive mind,[24] Read was unable to field a competitive team in his first job as a major college head coach. Oregon’s longest losing streak – 14 games – was set during Read’s three-year term, which also saw the team’s worst loss in history (66–0 at Washington in 1974).[25]

After the Ducks’ home opener in 1975, a 5–0 loss to San Jose State, UO president William Boyd told a reporter he’d “rather be whipped in a public square than sit through a game like that.”[26]

Read was fired, with one year left on his contract, after the 1976 season ended.[27]

Rich Brooks eraEdit

Rich Brooks became head coach in 1977 and got off to a shaky start, with four two-win seasons in his first six years at Oregon.[28][29] After hovering around .500 seasons the next few years, the team posted an 8–4 season in 1989, going to the Independence Bowl.[30] Brooks would achieve two more bowl games before his final season in 1994.[31]

The pinnacle of Brooks' Oregon career came in his final year when his team became the Pacific-10 Conference Champions with a 9–3 regular season record and a Rose Bowl appearance.[31] The defining moment of the season came in the game against the number 9 ranked Washington Huskies known by Duck fans as "The Pick".[32] Prior to that game, the Ducks had won only three games against the Huskies in 20 seasons, including many heartbreakers in the heated rivalry.[33] Late in the game, as the Ducks were up just 24–20, Washington was in good position to score and take the lead when the Huskies' quarterback Damon Huard threw an interception to Kenny Wheaton who returned the interception for a 97-yard touchdown, sealing the win for the Ducks. The Pick is replayed on the big screen at Autzen Stadium before each football game.[32] Following the Washington game, the Ducks finished the rest of the regular season without a loss, but lost to the Penn State Nittany Lions in the Rose Bowl.[31]

After the 1994 season, Rich Brooks announced that he would leave the university to coach for the Los Angeles Rams.[34] Although Brooks did not have as high a winning percentage, he surpassed Casanova's number of wins with 89 to become the winningest coach in school history.[35] The field at Autzen Stadium is named Rich Brooks Field, in honor of Rich Brooks.[36]

Mike Bellotti eraEdit

Offensive coordinator Mike Bellotti was elevated into the head coaching position after Rich Brooks vacated the position in 1995.[37] During his head coaching career, Bellotti elevated the expectations of the Ducks football program. Season records that in the past would have been deemed acceptable or even laudable are now considered mediocre and disappointing.[36] Bellotti was immediately successful, leading the team to a 9–3 record his first year and an appearance in the Cotton Bowl Classic.[38] In his 14 seasons, Bellotti’s teams were selected for 12 bowl games, and only once (2004, 5–6) did the Ducks post a losing record during his tenure.[9]

Bellotti coached the team to the Pac-10 Championship in the 2000 season, shared with Washington and OSU.[39] With a Rose Bowl bid on the line, the Ducks lost the 2000 Civil War at Corvallis, dropping the Ducks to the Holiday Bowl[40] The Ducks defeated Texas 35–30 in the Holiday, for the first 10-win season in program history.[41]

In the 2001 season, senior quarterback Joey Harrington, a Heisman Trophy finalist,[42] led the Ducks to its first 11-win season in program history and an outright Pac-10 championship.[43][44] The season was riddled with close games, 6 of which ended with a spread of one score or less, coining the nickname "Captain Comeback" for Harrington.[45][46] The only loss of the season came at home to the Stanford Cardinal.[46]

The Ducks ended the 2001 regular season ranked No. 2 in both the AP and Coaches polls, but the BCS computer formula ranked Oregon No. 4, behind No. 2 Nebraska – which had been thrashed by Colorado in its final regular season game – and No. 3 Colorado; this kept Oregon out of the national championship game.[47] The discrepancy caused the BCS committee to alter the ranking system for subsequent years to a formula which, if applied in 2001, would have placed Oregon in the national championship game.[48] The 2001 Ducks instead played at the Fiesta Bowl against Colorado. Oregon's run defense stifled Colorado's running game, holding them to just 49 yards on 31 carries. Harrington passed for 350 yards and led the Ducks to a 38–16 win.[49] Oregon settled for a final 2nd place ranking in both the AP and Coaches polls.[50] After the 2001 season, offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford left for the head coaching job at California, replaced by Andy Ludwig.

The 2003 season was highlighted by a big win against the 5th ranked Michigan Wolverines, ruining Michigan's aspirations of a big season during a trip to a west coast game for the third time in four years.[51]

Ludwig resigned as offensive coordinator after a dismal 2004 campaign, the only losing season (5–6) for a Mike Bellotti-coached Oregon team.[52] Recently fired BYU head coach Gary Crowton took the offensive reins;[53] the 2005 season saw a dramatic improvement from 2004, going 10–1 in the regular season, with the only loss to top-ranked USC.[54][55] In the eighth game of the season against the Arizona Wildcats, the senior starting quarterback for the Ducks, Kellen Clemens, suffered a spiral fracture in his ankle, ending his season and his collegiate career.[56] Despite losing Clemens, the Ducks won the game as well as the rest of their regular season games but lost the Holiday Bowl to the Oklahoma Sooners.[54]

In 2006 the team started off well, winning four games to open the season,[54] including a controversial victory against Oklahoma where there were questionable reviews by the officials late in the game,[57] although some have noted there were also calls throughout the game that went against the Ducks.[58] But the Oklahoma victory proved to be the high point of the 2006 season; the team eventually fell apart, going 3–5 for the remainder of the regular season, and were pounded by BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl, losing 8–38 in a dismal performance.[59]

The first play of the 2007 game between Oregon and USC

Gary Crowton left Oregon for the offensive coordinator position at Louisiana State University after the 2006 season; Chip Kelly was hired to replace him in February, 2007.[60] Kelly's first season as offensive coordinator was a big success, with the 2007 Ducks going 8–1 behind QB Dennis Dixon and ranked as high as No. 2, before being decimated by injuries at quarterback. Finishing the regular season 8–4, the Ducks met the South Florida Bulls in the Sun Bowl. Redshirt freshman QB Justin Roper started the bowl game for the Ducks and threw four TD passes as Oregon won the game 56–21, with the Oregon junior running back Jonathan Stewart amassing 253 rushing yards for a Sun Bowl record.[61]

The 2008 season saw the emergence of quarterback Jeremiah Masoli as the leader of Chip Kelly’s spread offense. Masoli, a transfer from City College of San Francisco, stepped in against Washington in the season opener, when starter Justin Roper was injured, and led the Ducks to a 44–10 victory.[62] Despite injuries, Masoli cemented himself as the starter by mid-season. In the 2008 Civil War, the Ducks defeated the Oregon State Beavers in Corvallis, 65–38, knocking the Beavers out of the Rose Bowl.[63] The Ducks went to the Holiday Bowl.[64] In a clash of two teams with high powered offenses, Oregon beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the 2008 Holiday Bowl and finished the season ranked in the top 10.[65][66]

In March 2009, Bellotti announced his resignation; Kelly would take over as the head coach, and Bellotti was named athletic director, replacing Pat Kilkenny.[67] Bellotti left the program as the winningest coach in Oregon history, with 116 wins and a 67.8 winning percentage.[9]

Chip Kelly eraEdit

In his first season as the head coach of the Ducks, Kelly stumbled out of the gate, losing to Boise State by 11 points in a game ending in controversy with Ducks running back LeGarrette Blount punching Byron Hout on national television after being taunted.[68] The Ducks showed only minor improvements with close wins against the Purdue Boilermakers and the Utah Utes.[68] It wasn't until the start of the Pac-10 season that the Ducks shined by dismantling the at the time 2nd or 3rd ranked (depending on the poll) California Golden Bears 42–3.[69] The Oregon Ducks only lost one more game, to the Stanford Cardinal in the regular season, to win the Pac-10 title by two games. The Ducks went to the 2010 Rose Bowl, where they lost by a score of 26 to 17 to the Ohio State Buckeyes.[54] During the offseason, the team was mired in controversy off the field. Starting running back LaMichael James was involved in a domestic dispute in which he pleaded guilty to physical harassment of a former girlfriend and was suspended for the first game of 2010 season.[70] Starting quarterback Jeremiah Masoli was suspended for the entire 2010 football season over thefts from a local fraternity house.[71] On June 7, Masoli was cited for marijuana possession, driving with a suspended license and failing to stop when entering a roadway. In response, coach Chip Kelly officially removed him from the team.[72]

Despite the loss of Masoli, the Ducks dominated their opponents in the 2010 season. On October 17, the team moved up to the No. 1 ranking in both the AP and USA Today Coaches Poll for the first time in school history.[73] This occurred after the #1-ranked teams, the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Alabama Crimson Tide lost in consecutive weeks.

The Ducks finished the regular season with a 12–0 record; winning the conference at 9–0, they were the only team in Pac-10 history to defeat every other conference team in a single season.[74] Ranked No. 2 in the BCS rankings, the Ducks played Auburn in the 2011 BCS National Championship Game at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, losing on an Auburn field goal as time expired, 22–19.[75]

Despite his opening game suspension, Oregon RB LaMichael James won the 2010 Doak Walker Award as the nation's outstanding college running back.[76] James was also Oregon's first unanimous All-American football player, appearing on all five all-America teams recognized by the NCAA.[77]

Oregon won its third straight conference championship in 2011, winning the new Pac-12 North Division and defeating UCLA in the inaugural Pac-12 Conference Championship Game.[78] The Ducks became the first Pac-12 team other than USC to win three consecutive titles outright since the conference was formed in 1959.[79] LaMichael James became the first player in conference history with three 1,500+ yard rushing seasons, and ranks third on the Pac-12's career rushing list. James was a finalist for the 2011 Doak Walker Award, and was named a finalist for the 2011 Paul Hornung Award. Punter Jackson Rice was a finalist for the Ray Guy Award[80] .

Venues and facilitiesEdit

102707-Oregon-AutzenStadium-ext

Autzen Stadium

Autzen Stadium, the home of Oregon's football team, was named in honor of Thomas J. Autzen, a Portland businessman and, ironically, a graduate of rival Oregon State University. After his death, the Autzen Foundation, managed by son and Oregon alum Thomas E. Autzen, gave the university $250,000 towards construction of the facility, completed in 1967.[81] The 54,000 seat stadium is known as a very intimidating and loud environment. Standing room around the rim of the stadium allows the capacity to swell to more than 60,000. On October 27, 2007 in a game against USC, the crowd of 59,277 was able to reach a noise level of 127.2 decibels, the 4th loudest ever recorded at a college football game.[82]

Moshofsky Sports Center, named in honor of former University of Oregon football letterman (1940–42) and long-time university supporter Ed Moshofsky, was dedicated in August, 1998, the first indoor practice and training facility in the Pacific-10 Conference. Located south of the Casanova Athletic Center, the Moshofsky Center accommodates the majority of the University’s intercollegiate athletic programs. The $14.6 million facility includes an enclosed full-length artificial surface football field and 120-meter four-lane synthetic surface running track and an automated system in place to lower a batting cage for use by the softball team, as well as protective netting that transforms the facility for use by the men’s and women’s golf teams.[83] A combination of indirect lighting and two parallel skylight panels contribute to an energy efficient system which allows the flexibility to alter lighting conditions.[84]

Bowl game historyEdit

The Ducks won their only Rose Bowl in 1917 against the University of Pennsylvania and have been to four Rose Bowls since, losing all four.[85] However, the Ducks did play in and won the 2002 Fiesta Bowl against the Colorado Buffaloes which took the Pac-10 champions in years where the Rose Bowl is reserved for the national championship game like 2002.[86][87] After the two Rose Bowls in 1917 and 1920, the Ducks appeared in just four bowl games over the next 68 years. Under head coach Rich Brooks, the Ducks went to four bowl games in just six seasons; the 1989 and 1992 Independence Bowls, the 1990 Freedom Bowl, and the 1995 Rose Bowl.[85] During Mike Bellotti's tenure as head coach between the 1995 and 2008 seasons, the Ducks went to a bowl game every year with the exception of the 1996 and 2004 seasons. Under Chip Kelly, the Ducks earned a berth in the 2010 Rose Bowl and the 2011 BCS National Championship Game in successive seasons, but lost both games.

RivalriesEdit

The Civil War game between Oregon and Oregon State was originally called the "Oregon Classic" or the "State Championship Game." It is the 4th oldest rivalry in division IA football. It is also one of the most heated rivalries.

The Oregon-Washington rivalry, also known as the "Border War,"[88] has been ongoing since 1948 and has incited particular passion and poor behavior from fans of the respective schools.[89] Oregon's current eight-game win streak is the longest in the 110-year history of the series[90]

Notable playersEdit

Many Ducks players have gone on to play football in the professional ranks.[91] Between 1996 and 2008, five players have been selected in the first round of the NFL Draft including Jonathan Stewart in 2008, Haloti Ngata in 2006, Joey Harrington in 2002, Akili Smith in 1999, and Alex Molden in 1996.[92] A number of former Oregon Ducks football players have also been inducted to the NFL Hall of Fame including Gary Zimmerman, Dave Wilcox, Norm Van Brocklin, Dan Fouts, and Mel Renfro.[93] Tuffy Leemans is another NFL Hall of Fame inductee who played for the Oregon freshman team before transferring to George Washington University.[94] Several former players, including Mike Nolan, Gunther Cunningham, John McKay, Jack Patera, John Robinson, Bill Musgrave, and Norv Turner, have become coaches for NFL and college teams.[95][96][97][98] Dan Fouts and Ahmad Rashad have become sportscasters after their professional careers.[99]

UniformsEdit

The University of Oregon football team is known for their unique uniform style in recent years, consisting of multiple color combinations of helmets, uniforms (both shirts and pants), socks, and shoes, resulting in a new uniform setup every week (not counting in-season changes to uniform designs). The frequent changes have led to criticism by alumni and football purists,[100] though the changes have been often well-liked and praised by football recruits.[101][102] The new schemes are designed by the nearby Nike Corporation, who have the outfitting rights for the Ducks.[103]

For several decades in the 20th century, Oregon's uniforms were traditional, generally featuring a yellow helmet (with the original interlocking "UO" emblem) and yellow pants, joined with a green home jersey with gold letters or white road jersey with green letters and "UCLA-style" shoulder loops. During the Jerry Frei era (1967–1971), the helmets were solid green with subtle logo variations. In 1972, new head coach Dick Enright returned the yellow helmet with Green Bay Packer-style green and white striping and no logos, a helmet style that continued until 1977, when new head coach Rich Brooks added the green block-style interlocking "UO" emblem. In 1985, the team added the Oregon Donald Duck logo to the jersey sleeves. Mike Bellotti made subtle changes in the livery, removing the striping from the helmet, jersey and pants, and adding a green variation of the pants.[104]

The first major change in the uniforms under Bellotti debuted in the 1998 Aloha Bowl, where the new "O" emblem with the complete green helmets and jerseys with lightning yellow letters were revealed. Only once has the original "UO" helmet emblem made a comeback, when it was worn along with a throwback jersey, against Cal in 2009. However, the neo-throwback green jersey with gold letters, without the yellow "UO" helmet or the yellow pants, did appear in the 2009 Civil War.

The football team used nine different football combinations in the 2005 season, but introduced even more combinations in the 2006 season.[105] The new uniforms in 2006 provided 384 possible different combinations of jerseys, pants, helmets, socks, and shoes. A metallic-yellow colored helmet with silver flames, which debuted in the 2006 Las Vegas Bowl, increased the possible combinations to 512.[106] These uniforms were more technologically advanced than other uniforms, 28% lighter when dry, 34% lighter when wet, and greater durability with reinforcing diamond plating patterns at the joints.[103] The Ducks wore the previously announced white helmets for the first time on October 20, 2007 in Seattle, when they played the Washington Huskies.[107] In 2008, during the Arizona-Oregon game, they wore new, all black uniforms nicknamed "lights out", but instead of the typical metal diamond plated shoulder pads, the new uniforms had a wing pattern.[108][109]

On June 23, 2009, Nike unveiled a new uniform design based on the "lights out" design from the previous season featuring the "wings" pattern on the shoulder pads as well as a more simplified uniform design, while retaining the number font style of "Bellotti Bold" and the colors of green, black, white, yellow, grey, gold, and steel. One can track the Ducks' uniforms online.[110]
