There are 119 schools that participate in college football, some more historic than others. Michigan, Ohio State and Miami have all established a permanent legacy. Teams strive to be mentioned in the same breath as these schools. One team is on the brink of creating a lasting legacy.
The Oregon Ducks kick off their 2012-2013 season with high standards and a lot of potential. Kenjon Barner and De’Anthony Thomas are prepared to take over the running game and make an impact. Former red shirt quarterback Marcus Mariota has the talent needed to lead his new team to its first championship in school history. Chip Kelly’s return to the helm shows his confidence in his potent offensive system. Tonight’s game versus Arkansas State is going to dictate the rest of Oregon’s season. All the pieces of the puzzle are in place. If the Ducks can execute a win their will be a parade in Eugene.
The key to long-term success in sports is being able to plug players into your system. Darron Thomas decided to pursue an NFL Dream allowing Oregon to plug a new QB in to their system. Building a lasting college football legacy requires years of recruiting and success. The main goal is to win the title but the ducks need to take the next step in building a lasting legacy.
