Oregon's Cameron Hunt: "30 To 40-Percent Of Team" Doesn't Care If Ducks Win

Oregon football is in the midst of its worst season in at least a decade, and senior offensive lineman Cameron Hunt is not afraid to call out a major problem in the locker room.

Hunt, the most experienced player on the offensive line for Oregon, says 30 or 40-percent of the roster "doesn't care" if the Ducks win or lose on Saturdays. From The Register-Guard:

“We’ve got some guys on our team who are busting their tails to win and other guys on our team that don’t even care if we win or lose,” senior Cameron Hunt said, estimating 30 to 40 percent of the team falls into the latter category. “I don’t think everyone is bought-in.

“I think people really need to evaluate if they want to play. As a coach, figure out what guys want to play and what guys don’t want to play, and if they don’t want to play, they can leave.”

Oregon football is 2-4, with four straight losses. The offense can score, but the defense might actually be worse than it was last year after hiring former Michigan head coach Brady Hoke to rebuild the unit. In the last four weeks, Oregon has surrendered an average of 49.3 points per game, and has failed to allow fewer than 26 points in a game this season. The Ducks lost to Washington, now the Pac-12 favorite, 70-21 at home. This was the Huskies' first win in the rivalry since 2003. Colorado's win over Oregon was its first since the 1998 Aloha Bowl, when the Buffaloes were in the Big 12.
