Hello My FishDuck Friends … just as we have a “GameDay” article and continuous thread to discuss Our Beloved Ducks before, during and after the games in the fall….it makes sense to do it for the 2021 Spring Game as well.
This is not a “regular” article, and there will be more of these short pieces in the future that are meant to simply begin the Duck Discussions in the comments. Give me your thoughts before the Spring Game, during the Spring Game and of course we have to share our thoughts after the game of what we noted.
What are you going to be watching for?
Think we’ll see just the vanilla stuff? (That does make it easier on the defense!)
What do you think the run-to-pass ratio will be?
Want to bet on whether we see primarily 4-3 defensive alignments or the 3-4 alignments that have been hinted at?
Which players have you got your eye on?
I have only one major objection with the 2:00 PM time start time on the Pac-12 channel, and that is because it conflicts with the No. 9 in the nation Oregon Baseball team taking on the WSU Cougars in Pullman. The Ducks won wonderfully last night 13-0, but the Cougs have a pitcher today (2:05 PM First Pitch) that is every bit as good as our Cullen Kafka, thus is will be quite a duel that will be a delight to watch.
I will be recording the Spring Game and watching the Baseball game live since it is only Live-Stream, but even if my opinions are delayed … they won’t be for long!
So many questions to answer to about players and scheme–so much fun to watch our 2021 team be revealed. So let’s get started–what are your thoughts, because…
“Oh, how we love to ponder about Our Beloved Ducks!”

FishDuck Going to Articles on Monday and Tuesday Only…
Our off-season schedule begins, and we move from publishing articles seven days a week to Mondays and Tuesdays only. Same great group of writers, and we will have an article on other days on occasion.
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!
