Default Re: Defense wins goal-line drill + News and notes from the 10th day of training camp

Dennis needs to get it done... Realize we have a great talent here...

2007 USC vs Oregon notes.

The deft decision making that has helped turn Oregon’s starting quarterback into an emerging Heisman Trophy candidate.

On the football field this fall, Dixon has been treating opposing defenses in the same manner as sunflower seeds — chewing them up and spitting them out. In leading the Ducks to fifth in the Bowl Championship Series standings, Dixon has established himself as the nation’s most dynamic, dangerous QB.

In past seasons, the athleticism and talent were evident in the 6-foot-4, 205-pound senior. But it was not until this season that Dixon has been able to fully unleash his talent, thanks to his own maturity and the tutelage of a new offensive coordinator.

It all adds up to 154 completions in 224 attempts (68.8 percent) for 1,885 yards, 16 touchdowns and three interceptions and 492 yards and eight TDs rushing for Oregon, which is 7-1 heading into a Saturday showdown against Arizona State, No. 4 in the BCS standings.

“I don’t think anybody has defended him,” ASU coach Dennis Erickson said. “We have to try to control him, but he is hard to control because of his ability to run. If you look throughout the country for a guy that should be considered for the Heisman Trophy, it would be him.”

then he got hurt... and now we have him...
so let him play football....
get him on the field.
