Hello, Ducks. Well, we have hinted about it in weeks past. Now it’s time to come clean. The Golden Era of FishDuck.com
All gone. We have fallen on hard times. Road trips which were a few hours in the company jet are different now.
It has gotten bad enough that I need to take on a second job. But what should I do?
I decided to take a look at my skill set. What are my strengths? What can I offer that no one else can? Then it came to me! I’m a degenerate gambler!
Boy, do I feel better. Obviously gambling on football can and will make me rich. But I don’t want to be just rich for myself. I want to take you, my loyal FishDuck.com reader on the ride with me.
That’s why I am giving to you, free of charge, my college football selections for this week. Not only will you get the picks, but the research behind the picks. Are you ready? Here we go!
Bowling Green -13.5 versus UMass
Kansas State +9.5 versus TCU
USC -17 Washington and Washington on the Money Line against USC (Written before game last night)
Go Ducks! Crush the Cougs!

Kim Hastings is a 1984 graduate of Northwest Christian College. He cut his journalistic teeth as sports editor of a paper in his home town of Fortuna, CA, and, later as a columnist for the Longview Daily News in Longview, WA.
He saw his first Oregon game in 1977 and never missed a home game from 1981 until a bout with pneumonia cut his streak short in 1997. He was one of the proud 3200 on a bitterly cold night in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1989 for the Independence Bowl, and continues to be big supporter of Oregon sports. He is an active participant on the various Oregon Ducks messageboards as “TacomaDuck.”
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.
