Oregon players held a team meeting without their coaches this week following back-to-back losses.
Veteran players addressed their teammates on a practice field Monday, two days after the Ducks' 41-38 loss at home to Colorado. The Buffaloes had not defeated Oregon since joining the Pac-12 in 2011.
"Those kind of things are almost always positive in the end, good in the end" coach Mark Helfrich said, referring to the players' meeting during his weekly news conference. "And like a lot of things, there are words, and then there are actions and commitments that come out of things."
