CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Marcus Mariota and No. 2 Oregon wasted no time showing Virginia all that speed the Ducks bring is more than just talk. Mariota ran 71 yards for a touchdown on the Ducks sixth play from scrimmage, turning a third-and-5 that had the crowd jacked up for a defensive stop into a demoralizing introduction into what Oregon football is all about. "They came out in a man-free look and they all kind of ran with their guy and I just kind of hit it up the middle," Mariota said of the play, on which he flared five receivers out, then ran a draw. He was virtually untouched on the play. "The guys did a good job blocking and the receivers did a good job blocking downfield," he said. Mariota finished with 122 yards on four carries, and threw two touchdown passes. DeAnthony Thomas added three touchdown runs, and the Ducks piled up 557 yards of offence in their first trip to Charlottesville on the way to a 59-10 victory that looked frighteningly easy. Still, it left first-year head coach Mark Helfrich with plenty to complain about, namely 11 penalties for 119 yards. "Obviously we will clean that up," Helfrich said. The offence, which built a 21-0 lead in the first 10:32, felt like it left a lot on the field, too. "I thought we did all right," Mariota said. "There were some times that we slowed ourselves down with penalties and bad throws. If everything starts to click for us, like those first three drives, I think things will get rolling and well be pretty good." Thomas ran for 124 yards on just 11 carries, and the Ducks (2-0), who gained a school-record 772 yards last week in beating Nicholls State, looked capable of doing it again against a Virginia defence that hoped to keep the Cavaliers in the game. Oregons up-tempo offence did all its damage while possessing the ball for just 21:25. As always, Thomas said, their opponents faces told the story. "Thats the funny part. For the first couple plays, theyre out there talking, and as the game goes by, guys are just slowing down and you can see by their body language and stuff, and thats when we know we got em," the fleet junior said. Virginia (1-1) came into the game riding a high after a comeback victory last week against BYU, the first since coach Mike London hired new offensive, defensive and special teams co-ordinators. Defensive co-ordinator Jon Tenutas unit, especially, seemed confident it would be able to slow the Ducks down, but Mariota provided a very early look at what it was up against. "We knew they are fast and athletic," London said. "We tried to practice the pace, but its hard to practice for that type of athleticism that they have. It is always a challenge when you face an offence like that." The victory was the Ducks 16th in a row on their opponents field, the longest streak in the country. Mariota finished 14 of 28 for 199 yards with touchdowns of 30 yards to Bralon Addison and 11 to Keanon Lowe. The Cavaliers trailed 21-0 after 10:32 and never were able to sustain anything on offence. David Watford was 29 for 41 for 161 yards, but threw three interceptions and fumbled once, and all four turnovers led to Oregon touchdowns. "Im just learning every week, and thats all I can do," Watford, a first-year starter, said. Virginias lone touchdown came on a 45-yard run by Khalek Shepherd. After Mariotas long run, the teams exchanged punts, and when the Cavaliers Alec Vozenilek punted again from his 14, Josh Huff deflected the ball out of bounds at the Cavaliers 14. Three plays later, Thomas went through the line from a yard out for the touchdown, and it was 14-0 after 7:45. The Cavaliers got their first two first downs of the game on the next series before Watford rolled right, threw downfield on the run and the ball glanced off Dominique Terrells hands into the arms of Terrance Mitchell, who returned the interception 16 yards to the Virginia 40. On the next play, Thomas went around the right side and down the sideline, tight-roping the line for a touchdown, and it was 21-0. Shepherds touchdown gave the biggest crowd at Scott Stadium in five years reason for hope, pulling the Cavaliers within 21-7, and when the defence held on the next two series, the excitement grew. But early in the second quarter, Thomas ripped off a 22-yard run, took a swing pass 28 yards down the sideline and Mariota hit Bralon Addison with a short pass that turned into a 30-yard touchdown. Three plays. Eighty yards. Less than a minute off the clock. And the Ducks were rolling again. Thomas added an 8-yard TD run in the third quarter, and Mariota hit Keannon Lowe from 11 yards for a touchdown to make it 45-10, prompting both coaches to begin substituting liberally. Freshman tailback Thomas Tyner made the most of his chance, carrying four times for 51 yards and two touchdowns, including a 31-yarder midway through the final quarter. Kevin Parks led Virginia with 60 yards rushing, and Jake McGee caught eight passes, but for just 53 yards. Dawuane Smoot Jersey .

Coach Bruce Boudreau and Selannes former teammates reacted with disappointment and chuckles Thursday after hearing about Selannes fierce criticism of Boudreau in a new biography published in Finland. Selanne retired at 43 years old last summer following a 21-season NHL career spent mostly in Anaheim. His disagreements with Boudreau about his playing time and role last season were hardly secrets, but Selannes decision to air them in public surprised the Ducks. "Nobody likes hearing anything negative about themselves, so in that sense Im a little disappointed," Boudreau said. "But I understand the frustration." Several media outlets obtained copies of the Finnish book and translated the passages criticizing Boudreaus decisions regarding Selanne, who felt betrayed by his dwindling role in his final season. Selanne, who flirted with retirement for seven consecutive summers, even said he might have played another year if Boudreau wasnt the Ducks coach. Ducks general manager Bob Murray and captain Ryan Getzlaf backed Boudreaus handling of Selannes final season Thursday, saying they were aware of the Finnish Flashs disappointments. "He is such a competitor, and he was frustrated his last year didnt go quite the way he wanted to go, and he was frustrated at the end of the year," Murray said. "Its Teemu being Teemu." Selanne issued a reconciliatory comment through the Ducks on Thursday after his book became a topic of discussion. He apparently worked on the book immediately after the Ducks were eliminated from the second round of the post-season by Los Angeles. "In the book, I tried to explain honestly what happened last year," Selanne said. "In frustration, I made several comments following our Game 7 loss to the Kings that I shouldnt have said. As Ive said many times, Bruce is a nice guy, but we simply had a different view on my role with the Ducks. Im sorry if I hurt Bruce or anyone else. That was not my intent." Boudreau acknowledged he was caught between the wildly popular Selannes opinion of his skills and his own desire to maximize the Ducks scoring in a successful season. Anaheim finished atop the Western Conference before its second-round playoff exit to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Kings. Selanne scored a career-low nine goals in 64 games during his final season, but said he was promised more playing time on the second line and on the power play. His skills still appeared sharpp at the Sochi Olympics, where he was named the tournament MVP while winning a bronze medal as Finlands captain in his sixth games.dddddddddddd Selanne is the 11th-leading goal-scorer in NHL history with 684 goals, and his 1,457 points are 15th. "I was always very cognizant of who he was, what he meant to hockey in California, what hes meant to the Ducks, and he was a great player," Boudreau said. Selanne wrote that he was furious after Boudreau scratched him for Game 4 of the Ducks first-round playoff series against Dallas, leading to a post-practice confrontation on the ice. Boudreau downplayed the incident. "He raised his voice a bit, and all I did was tell him, OK, not so loud," Boudreau said. "Lets talk like men. And then he stopped and he caught himself, because hes an emotional guy." Selannes healthy scratch was extremely unpopular with Ducks fans, but Boudreau said he consulted with Anaheims scouts and other front-office personnel before making the move. Boudreau told Selanne about the scratch a day before the game, leading to the argument. "It was a really tough thing," Boudreau said. "I dont think any coach wants to sit out a superstar." Selanne had two goals and four assists in 12 playoff games. Getzlaf said he was disappointed to hear Selanne had hoped the captain would stick up for him in meetings with Boudreau and the Ducks brass. Getzlaf and Corey Perry frequently teamed with Selanne on the Ducks top power play unit, but not frequently enough for Selannes taste. "Im going to have to talk to him about it as friends," Getzlaf said. "But Teemu had numerous discussions with me last season, and the season before. As a captain, its my job to weed through things that I can go to the coach with, and things that I cant. Teemu doesnt know all the discussions that Ive had about him in the last two years, and theres been many times when Ive went to bat for him, and there are some times when I have to step away and just let the coach and GM make their decision." Selanne and his family still live in Orange County, and the Ducks will retire Selannes No. 8 jersey before a game against the Winnipeg Jets on Jan. 11. Boudreau, Murray and Getzlaf are confident Selannes gripes wont turn him away from the franchise that made him into a hockey icon. "Im sure Im going to see him again," Boudreau said. "And listen, he was one of my favourite guys. Ive always liked him and admired him. I dont think anyone here has ever heard me say a bad word about him, ever. And that will continue."
