The one thing that’s constant in this world is… change. That holds for sports as well as it does for shopping habits (goodbye corner grocery, hello WalMart) or the cost of gasoline. So it should come as no surprise that there’s a perceptible shift happening on the college football landscape. So long to “three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust” Midwestern-style ball. See ya’ll later, SEC. Welcome to the brave new world of hyper-speed offensives, defenses that are as athletic and they are big. Welcome to a region where flash and flesh mesh, where the ultra cool vibe is matched by ultra cool uniforms.
Welcome to the great Pacific Northwest.
Note from the Owner: Randy Morse is FishDuck.com‘s international correspondent, aka “The Fool on the Hill,” a writer/editor/publisher who contributes articles and videos throughout the week, mixing his unique perspective and lifestyle with his often amusing thoughts on the Ducks, and life in general. The “Hill” he reports from is a mountainous alpine village in British Columbia, Canada where the air is clear…and this time of year it’s always cold! While Randy’s based in another country in the middle of Alpine Nowhere, his heart bleeds green just like ours. Obviously, passion for our beloved Ducks knows no boundaries! Charles Fischer

Randy Morse (Editor and Writer) is a native Oregonian, a South Eugene High and U of O grad (where he played soccer for the Ducks, waaay back in ’70-‘71). After his doctoral work at the University of Alberta he launched a writing & publishing career – that plus his love of mountaineering has taken him all over the world. An award-winning artist, musician, broadcaster, and author, he’s written 8 books – his writing on media & democracy earned him the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting’s 2014 Dalton Camp Award. He swears he taught LaMarcus Aldridge his patented fade-way jump shot, and is adamant that if he hadn’t left the country (and was a foot taller) he would be the owner of a prosperous chain of fast food outlets and a member of the NBA Hall of Fame by now. If there is a more rabid Ducks fan in the known universe, this would come as a major surprise to Morse’s long-suffering family. He resides in the tiny alpine village of Kaslo, British Columbia.
Mr. FishDuck … You Simply Can’t Handle MY Opinions!
Baloney. I want all opinions here as it enables us see the full spectrum of ideas and helps us to learn from others and modify our own views as a result. In fact, this is the only Duck website where you can safely share your full-spectrum views on Oregon Sports.
If there is a problem … it is with your behaviors, and not your opinion, even if unpopular. Be polite and courteous to others and you will be reciprocated, and consequently you’ll have a tremendous experience on FishDuck.
The majority of our rules can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) keep it clean for grandchildren reading, and 3) no reference to politics.
