For the first time this spring, Oregon ( 2nd year ) offensive coordinator Scott Frost met with reporters to breakdown the Ducks offense going into the 2014 season.
After just three spring workouts, Frost seemed extremely pleased with the work his veteran squad is putting in especially the teams speed and tempo.
“I think pace is even better again” said Frost after Friday’s workout.
“Every time we get to a certain point, we talk about that as being our base line and our standard and now we want to exceed that standard. I think honestly what feels a little slow to us now was probably fast a couple of years ago.”
For the first time in spring practice, the Ducks worked out in full pads on the outdoor practice facility adjacent to the Hatfield-Dowlin football complex.
Asked about the progress of his offense – in particular the Ducks running back Thomas Tyner, Frost spoke highly about his second year back and his overall improvement in the system.
“I’m really impressed with Thomas so far this spring” explained Frost.
“If he keeps practicing like he is right now, we’re going to have a really good player on our hands. I think he’s kind of decided to take it to the next level and it’s really showing up. He’s a bit overweight right now, but he won’t be after a few practices.”
