Oregon needs one of these guys to start playing freer and with more confidence, to separate himself by producing in practice. “They are all showing signs, they just have to put it together,” Helfrich said.

Dale Newton believes this season will depend how well Brady Hoke's "new look" defense performs.

“Be the predator, not the prey,” was Hoke’s constant and consistent message to his defense this spring.

If they do so, the Ducks can exceed expectations and challenge for a conference championship in a terrifyingly balanced PAC-12.

■ Pitching coach Jason Dietrich wants more blue-collar approach from the Duck pitchers.

If Dietrich instills those values in the pitchers at Oregon as well as he did at Cal State Fullerton, the Ducks will be armed for success in coming seasons. Dietrich, officially hired earlier this month to replace departed assistant Mark Wasikowski, helped the Titans lead the NCAA in ERA this past spring while finishing as one of the best strike-throwing staffs in the country for the fourth year in a row.

■ Chantel Jennings reports Mark Helfrich know his QB's will be "completely different" in fall camp.

“It can't be something where you're 52.7 percent of the vote and somebody else is -- you don't want those little tiny nuances,” Helfrich said. “You want it to be obvious and glaring and everybody kind of looks at each other and goes, ‘Yeah.’”

The AP says there are two Oregon players who could be pivotal to their success.

■ Tyson Alger previews the Sept. 3 game against UC Davis game at Autzen Stadium and then looks at the QB battle heading into fall camp.

The Ducks will just have to take care of the football. The Aggies don't have the offense to keep up with Oregon, but they don't give you freebies. Despite its worst record since 1960, UC Davis ranked third in the FCS in fewest penalties a game. As long as the Ducks don't hand the ball over to the Aggies, this game should be a blowout against a low-level FCS squad.

...Allen takes center stage once again -- as both the conference's and college football's fastest -- as the hurdler competes in his first U.S. Olympic Team Trials...

■ Jason Casey believes the Oregon offense will dominate the Pac-12 this year.

No matter who is at quarterback this season, the Ducks will have a better season than last year with a healthy receiving corps, better defense, an All-American running back, and two quarterbacks who can run the offense (we hope).
