Rum­blin’ and fum­blin’

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

The Ducks scored at least 40 points seven times last sea­son, and they topped 30 in three other games. James, who fin­ished with 1,546 rush­ing yards in his fresh­man sea­son, ac­tu­ally had a bet­ter yards-per-carry av­er­age (6.72) than did Alabama’s Heis­man Tro­phy win­ner Mark In­gram (6.12). Ore­gon also re­turns its en­tire start­ing of­fen­sive line from last year. The one prob­lem for the Ducks was that they tended to shoot them­selves in their own webbed feet. Ore­gon lost 16 fum­bles last year. Only one team in the 120-school Foot­ball Bowl Sub­di­vi­sion, Troy, gave away more.
