As cold as my ratings may have been toward last year's Oregon team, they were equally warm to that 2007 team. Dixon and the Ducks were so good that, even when they fell apart after Dixon's injury, they still finished the season ranked seventh in S&P+. And it's not hard to remember why.

And yes, that was Chip Kelly's first season in charge of the offense. More fake Statue Of Liberty plays, please.
