“We’re running a new defense? How come I haven’t heard of this before?”
I could scarcely believe my ears as I spoke to Casey Matthew’s father, Clay Matthews Sr. on the sidelines during the 2010 Spring Drills.
I followed all the newspapers and multiple Oregon football websites and this was the first I had learned of it! Many of you now recall how I did extensive homework after that conversation and created the first official announcement and explanation of Oregon’s new (at that time) 3-4 Defense in the summer of 2010. We have those original articles that I wrote and posted on multiple Oregon websites about a year before FishDuck.com began. They are in the new Defensive Tutorial section of the Directory on FishDuck.com.
“Oh how we love to learn about our beloved Ducks!”

For Greybeards … the EYES Have it!
Want to know a secret about web behavior? Readers don’t like long stretches of sentences in comment posts without any breaks, and most readers don’t even like long paragraphs.
Break it up! After every third sentence in your post…hit “enter” on your keyboard twice if your computer is a PC, or “return” twice if you have a Mac.
This creates natural breaks between scads of sentences, and so many of us thank you for making it easier on our “Greybeard-age” eyes!
