The Special Teams Were Special, and Likely to Be So Again

R-G's Moseley previews special teams. Solid kicker and punter, and at least 6 kick returners who could take one the distance.

The coverage and return units did an amazing job last year, and Tom Osborne will have a lot of talent to choose from again this season.

It's always fun to see the wrinkles they come up with, fake punts, two-point conversions, and onside kicks.  In all the special teams produced five returns for touchdowns last season and numerous game-changing plays.  Mad Mike 1951 ought to give them their own highlight video.

The pride and preparation on the Oregon special teams were a winning edge in 2011.  They're likely to repeat that role this season.
