Nike recently introduced its newest football line – ”Nike Vapor Untouchable” — with their latest addition to the Nike team, Marcus Mariota, being the cover persona. Check out the ad below —

Nike recently signed Mariota to an endorsement deal, along with other future NFL stars Amari Cooper, Leonard Williams, Melvin Gordon, and some Florida State quarterback — but that’s not important. What is important, though, is the hope that Nike’s newest additions will replace the voids left by Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice, whose contracts were terminated after their recent off-the-field issues this past season. Below are photos of Marcus and the sleek new Nike gear:

This is a huge deal for Nike, as they have landed the projected first and second overall picks in Thursday’s NFL Draft. Nike also released a three-and-a-half minute video of Mariota preparing for the draft with famous Nike trainer Ryan Flaherty and what this opportunity means to him and his family.
Let’s all hope, as Nike and Duck fans, that this will be the first of many ads featuring Marcus with revolutionizing Nike products for years to come.

Jonathan is currently a sophomore at the University of Oregon, majoring in Business Management with a minor in Media Studies. Social Media is where he will impact FishDuck.com with his knowledge and time given. He is currently the sports anchor for DUCK TV, the U of O’s student-run television program that produces segments on news, sports, and other comedic, dramatic, creative shows that air on public access Channel 23. A native Texan from the border, Jonathan lives and breathes sports. As he likes to say, “I’m from Texas but I got here as fast as I could!” As a newcomer to FishDuck, he wants to use his ever-growing knowledge of college sports to get his message out to readers. When he’s not writing in-depth sports articles or working on Duck TV, Jonathan is busy rooting on his beloved Ducks in all sports, debating the worthiness of ESPN’s top ten plays of the day or playing golf with his friends.
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 Whitted & Mr. FishDuck
Thursday: Coach Eric Boles & Alex 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!
