■ Vernon Adams passed the one class/test that has kept him from joining the football team (which is good news) and Joseph Hoyt talks about the "legend" of Adams but it didn't start EWU.
■ Andrew Greif talks about the the promise of a young secondary.
■ Rob Moseley has your Thursday practice report.
■ Jason Quick looks at how the offensive line has come together this year.
■ Dale Newton looks at the prospect of starting the year without key players but they seem to persevere with the same "next-man-up" philosophy.
With the schedule they face and the obstacles they have to overcome it doesn’t look like the Ducks can win 12 games and make the College Football Playoff, but it didn’t look like they could do so in 2010 or 2014 either. There are always questions and challenges. The coaching staff here has built a culture that thrives on meeting them.
