This time of year I usually get revved up about the approaching college football season.  I'm a little tame this year, but I'll probably be back to normal soon enough.

As I've written here before, the biggest drag for me is the way the business side of the game has taken over.  But what can you do?

Big-time conferences get started with their month-long fall camps in about two weeks, so the 2017 season is rapidly approaching.

If you've followed this blog even casually since I started it in 2010, you know I'm an Oregon Ducks fan.

Of course it is widely known that Oregon fell off last year after a decade-long stretch of winning seasons that included two national title games--both losses unfortunately.

The former staff didn't recruit enough good players on the defensive side of the ball in recent years, but offensively the Ducks were their usual dynamos.

So the old staff is gone, but the same defensive players are back.  It could be a rough first year for new head coach Willie Taggert.  Every game will likely be a shootout, which is a risky way to collect wins.

Here is Oregon's 2017 depth chart as predicted by ChileDuck, a fan who lives in Ogden.  Barring injuries, defections or suspensions, he's usually spot on, so we shall see.
