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:
“You have to be a man when you win,” Malone said after the game of his actions. “And you have to be a man when you are defeated.”

New 2024 FishDuck Publishing Schedule….
During the off-season the FishDuck.com publishing schedule will consist of articles on Mondays and Tuesdays. Do keep checking as new articles could be published during the week when a writer has something to say.
In mid-August of 2024, we will go back to the seven-days-a-week of articles during the football season as we did in the football season of 2023.
The Our Beloved Ducks Forum (OBD) is where we we discuss the article above and many more topics, as it is so much easier in a message board format over there. At the free OBD forum we will be posting Oregon Sports article links, the daily Press Releases from the Athletic Department and the news coming out every day.
Our 33 rules at the free OBD Forum can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) do not tell anyone what to think, feel or write, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!
OBD Forum members….we got your back. No Trolls Allowed!
