08:14 AM ET 09.22 | A significant hole has opened on the Ducks' offensive line. [Ramsen Golpashin] has been on crutches since last week. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound senior had his left knee bandaged and heavily wrapped on Wednesday. UO coach Chip Kelly won't talk about injuries, but it appears that Golpashin has had major reconstructive surgery. Golpashin started at right guard in the Ducks' season-opener against LSU. The next week, against Nevada, Mark Asper moved from right tackle to right guard, and Nick Cody started at right tackle. The Ducks stayed that way for last week's non-conference game with Missouri State. Golpashin no longer is listed on Oregon's two-deep depth chart.

Always wondered why the Ducks have undersized dudes compared to many other schools. Its looking good for Stanford in the P12.

I think they like small quick lineman.. which is good for the PAC... but obviously when you play a team like LUS with monster DLs.. they will get hammered...And yes i had to plus the Tigers

USC has the same type players that LSU/Bama have you would think Oregon would take that into account...

I think the Ducks count on the "monster DL" faking injuries, like Cal did last year!!!

I can remember a time when 6'1" would have been a center on a BB team.

Its not against the rules..Even though the NFL about to put a stop to this

Oh, I didn't say it was against the rules!! IMO I think if a player fakes an injury or not, he should be required to sit out at least one set of downs!!!!
