Frost Speculation highlights practice

Oregon has a short week of practice before heading down to the Bay on Friday

With the firing of Bo Pelini in Nebraska, the Cornhuskers are looking for a new coach to head up their program. Certianly, the Huskers are looking at Oregon’s offensive Coordinator, Scott Frost. As has been mentioned, Frost was a quarterback for the Huskers and will likely be seeing a lot of attention coming his way in regards to the opening. Despite that, Frost remains focused on the task at hand.

“Listen, I have a job to do here. These kids and this staff put too much time and energy into this to be distracted by this. We’re getting ready for Friday. I would let you know if I wasn’t completely focused on Arizona,” said Frost.

The Ducks are going to facing their foil from earlier in the season in the Arizona Wildcats. The Wildcats feature an unorthodox defensive scheme in the 3-3-5. What is different about this scheme from a traditional defense is that they have the ability to drop anywhere from 6 to 8 defenders into coverage without sacrificing much on the pass rush.

“A lot is made of schemes and I think we have a good scheme on offense. The players are the ones that play. They’ve got some exceptional players and a linebacker that may be the best defensive player in the country. Any scheme is good when you run it well, and they run it well,” said Frost.

That player is Scooby Wright. Wright famously stripped Marcus Mariota in Oregon’s final drive against Arizona at the beginning of last month when the two teams had their initial meeting. He is likely to be a factor again in the conference championship.

Oregon certainly has a measure of revenge on their mind, even if none will say so. Oregon has been playing elimination football since their original loss to the Wildcats and with so much on the line, believe Oregon will put their best foot forward against the Wildcats.
