After a disappointing loss last Saturday, the Ducks want to play better this week.

Austin Maloata speaks with a soft voice, but no one is going to get confused because when you hear him, he speaks volumns about the state of the Oregon defensive line. He gave his unit a "C" for last weeks performance and is determined to do better this week.

The Ducks are preparing for Colorado this week and it is clear watching Maloata video following practice, he is unsatisfied with Oregon's play so far, particularly last week in a loss, and is anxious to get back on the field to show what his can do.

Maloata had a total of eight tackles last week (four solos) but he thinks they should be getting more and should have recorded some sacks.

He'll have his chance this Saturday when the Ducks open the Pac-12 schedule with Colorado at Autzen Stadium.
