History of Oregon Football

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Oregon Football Repository

If you wish to get to the History of Oregon Football section immediately .. click here now.

This History of Oregon Football section is one of 12 new sections of the incredible 1,000+ piece Oregon Football Repository that can be found up on the Toolbar. It has been a blast to find all these articles and videos, and my hope is that these new sections will be a great place to retreat to when you want a break from “real-life” and wish the pleasant diversion of reading about our Beloved Ducks.

The Next New Section is History of Oregon Football!

This new section of FishDuck.com will have over 170 history articles and videos to start, with more being added over time. The number of great FishDuck.com writers who have contributed is astounding such as Joey Holland, Jim Maloney, Brian Libby, Mike Merrell, Nathan Roholt, Pat Pannu, Jordan Ingram, Josh Schlichter, Mike Ostrom, Josh White, Henry Swift, and Kurt Liedtke.

Paul Land, Benzduck
His bio:
Amateur historian. Duck Fan since birth. Knothole Gang member. Son of and father of Oregon grads. “Dyer was down.”

One writer was not on this site as he created his own years back, (duck downs) and it is truly a jewel of Oregon football information and I wish to take a moment to publicly thank him. You will not believe what he dug up about our beloved Ducks to share with all of us fans! It is truly amazing research…

The writer, Paul Land, known as Benzduck, focused his site on the seasons before 1994, and only after reading so many of the amazing stories did I chuckle at how he calls so many of those football campaigns “the suffering.” The pain we went through recently in 2016 is minor compared to some stretches in Duck gridiron history, but yet Benzduck also highlights the winning seasons along with big-name players and coaches who went on to NFL success.

Did you know that an Oregon player was told by one of the top mobsters of the day (they made a movie about this ruthless fellow) to throw a football game and the Duck would not! In fact he testified in court against the mobster and went on to live to tell about it! This is but one of so many stories from the past of our beloved Ducks that Paul has brought to us and I am very, very grateful.

He’s right … many seasons Oregon fans suffered.

You will notice in the History of Oregon Football pages that many articles are linked directly to his site, and I invite you to look around and consider donating to help him offset all the costs. (I know these all too well!)

Isn’t it amazing what some fans have done for all of us?

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!
