DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE: Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said the "history of Oregon football" includes the "spirit of innovation and it's something that we pride ourselves on." He added, "That was how we got in the door at all and now we're able to compete a little bit different nationally with recruits." Helfrich said of Oregon's uniform combinations, "We are so used to it now. Our guys literally come in on gameday, look at the board and they have it all laid out ... and they just go." Helfrich said of his favorite combination, "To our diehard fans, you have to go with something green or yellow ... But the silver and the black and all that other stuff is pretty cool too" (ESPN.com, 7/30).
