Hello, Ducks! This Saturday the Utah Utes come to Autzen Stadium in the gloaming to take on our Ducks. A lot of questions will be answered by the time Sunday morning rolls around. One question we believe will be answered is one posed by the Utes. Just how long is the field, anyway?
Sure we have some questions. We wonder about the defense. We wonder about the franchise’s finger. But this week, FishDuck.com decided to go a different direction.
We believe Duck fans are among the smartest in the nation. The very fact you read The Great and Powerful Fish shows a level of intelligence far surpassing the normal invertebrates. So this is your chance to prove it . . .
