Two days in pads, a walk-through and a run-through before the Ducks board a plane to Virginia for a Saturday afternoon game versus the Cavaliers, 12:30 p.m. Pacific on ABC/ESPN.
Thomas Tyner will be on the plane. He says he's 100% and making progress with the playbook, adjusting to the speed and physicality of college football after being roughed up initially at practice. Tyner told Jason Quick of the Oregonian, “My first time walking in - I felt like I was going back to high school as a freshman. I didn’t know what to do, I didn’t know the system. I felt like every time I went into the offense I was screwing everything up. It took time for me to adjust.’’
Dash of the Titans: In eight short months, Thomas Tyner has gone from ballyhooed to lambasted, and all he did was sing off-key and turn an ankle. He's practicing well this week and expected to play Saturday (sbnation.com photo).
