The Fish Report: The Great Spread Offense Laboratory

How lucky can we be? Chip Kelly has been running the Spread Offense at Oregon for five years and I just set up the video tutorials about the basics of the Oregon Offense just this last summer in preparation for this year. The Spread Offense has become a staple of college football, and defenses are getting better in their counter-strategies, including against Oregon. The very year that I’m beginning to chronicle the Chip Kelly Offense, is the year that his offense is undergoing significant changes for us to discuss?

I cannot believe our timing, our luck, to have the video tutorials done in advance in order to compare the fundamentals of the last five years of the Chip Kelly Spread Offense in the tutorials, to the changes occurring. We are witness to a great Spread Offense Laboratory unfolding in Autzen Stadium, and I count myself very lucky to be in the “room” as the new ingredients are being added. Opposing coaches can’t have all the fun noticing the changes!

“Oh how love to learn about our beloved Ducks!”

For Football Season: FishDuck Back to Seven Days a Week!

I had to shut down the daily articles on July 20th because I could no longer work the extra 3 to 12 hours per week of certain managerial/editorial duties. (beyond the usual ones with FishDuck)

I’ve had a blast writing without those duties, and now, due to a new agreement with the writers, I can announce that we will have articles seven days a week again. I wish to thank the writers publicly for their graciousness in coming to a solution, as now I still do not have do those extra duties with our agreement, and meanwhile the writers are back having fun creating articles as I am.

Everybody is happy! So below is the new schedule through football season:

Monday: Mr. FishDuck
Tuesday: Darren Perkins
Wednesday: Joshua WhittedMr. FishDuck
Thursday: Coach Eric BolesAlex Heining
Friday: David Marsh
Saturday: Mr. FishDuck (GameDay Baby!)
Sunday: Jordan Ingram

A couple of writers could not join us as they have new projects in their lives, and cannot write for anyone at the moment–but perhaps we will see them back later.

Things rarely work out so well for all parties in agreements, but this time it has and truly….everyone wins!

Our 33 rules at FishDuck can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) keep it clean, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!

FishDuck members….we got your back.  No Trolls Allowed!
