The Oregon Ducks’ decision to keep their hearts intact during a game was a huge surprise, and it’s going to be even bigger for them now that they won’t be using their heart guards for games.
Oregon’s decision to not use its hearts in the Rose Bowl was the first time since 2005 that the Ducks have used a heart guard on a game day.
The Ducks are currently playing in the Fiesta Bowl, and they lost to USC with their hearts in tact.
“I’m a heart guy,” coach Willie Taggart said of his decision.
“I don’t know why the heart doesn’t work.
We’ve done some heart stuff in the past, and I’m not a heart person.
But it’s not like I can’t do it.
It’s not a problem.
It just doesn’t fit my lifestyle.”
The Ducks lost to the USC Trojans at the Rose this year with their heart in tact, and Oregon’s hearts weren’t the only ones in the game on Sunday.
Notre Dame was also without its heart in the second half.
But that game is a little more special because it was a game of the season, with no teams in the top 10 of the AP poll.
“We’ll just have to take it day by day,” quarterback Mitch Trubisky said.
“It’s a big part of the game, so it’s definitely something we have to do.”
Tubisky was also asked if the heart had played a role in his decision to sit out the game.
“Not really,” he said.
Tubik has had a lot of opportunities to start the season.
He has two games remaining in his career, and the Ducks are still trying to figure out how to play without their top two quarterbacks.
Taggard has to make a decision as to how he wants to play quarterback at some point, and he might have to make that decision in a couple of weeks.
