Easy answer--just look to last season

By: LA Duck

When Herbert went down for 5 games with a broken collarbone.  

Oregon went 1-4 in that stretch.

Probably still wouldn't have beaten @Stanford or @Washington with Herbert available.  But certainly would have beaten @UCLA and put up a tougher fight at home to WSU...

So the caveat really is less about Oregon winning 8-9 games, and more about if Herbert stays relatively healthy for all 12 games.
