Game of the Century Round II? This is truly a special matchup late in the PAC 12 Season. Can Oregon match up with the powerful Cardinal run attack, and contain Andrew Luck in the same game? Can Stanford stop the improving Ducks Offense? In a game with such even categories, and a game that isn’t the first game of the season, it will either come down to the best quarterback, and since I don’t want to narrow it down to that, which offense can execute the best. Either way, expect a great game overall.

Predictions:

Well this is one is almost too close to call. It reminds me a lot of the Oregon-LSU matchup because of the way that you can’t really pick someone on paper, because it is so darn close. Oregon has firepower, but they also have a tendency to shoot themselves in the foot, or at least a recent trend of being choppy. If the Ducks come out of the gates slowly, like they have in almost every game this season, then Stanford will be up by 21 at half time. If the Ducks are on top of their game, they can fight with Stanford to the bitter end.

Expect Darron Thomas to be a bigger piece of Oregon’s success than Andrew Luck to Stanford’s.

I say Oregon is on top of their game, and Allioti’s defense is ramped up. It comes down to the last possession, and Luck has the ball.

It really could go either way

Oregon: 36

Stanford: 38

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!
