Morning After Hangover: Oregon Still Giving Us Things To Celebrate

Raise your hand if you are tired of the Ohio State celebratory articles. I know I am. FishDuck.com writer Caleb Couturie provided us what I believe is the best overall assessment of the game with some good, some bad, and some other stuff from last night. It hurts. It hurts a lot, but even a loss has a silver lining. Oregon players, coaches, and fans showed that even in a loss, we are still more than just a bunch of kids playing football.

Matt Prehm from 247sports.com wrote a fantastic piece on Derrick Malone on gathering the younger Ducks and making sure they manned up and congratulated the victors. From Prehm’s piece:

Puddles the Duck gave his opinion on the game, and it went viral –

Assistant AD Andy McNamara reminds us what we have to be thankful for:

Go Ducks!
