Oregon Ducks Football: Undefeated Season Incoming?

Alex Heining Editorials

Our Oregon Ducks football program is currently favored (along with Notre Dame) to go undefeated through the regular season. The College Football Playoff is certainly a different story, though that sort of praise from the media early in the offseason places a massive target on the Ducks’ backs to be the proverbial “team to beat” in 2024.

While this doesn’t necessarily rank Oregon as the best team in America, it does put into perspective what kind of schedule we have ahead, how much confidence the media has placed in this program’s culture, and what type of expectation elite roster construction combined with Dan Lanning’s leadership can inspire. Even Mr. FishDuck took time from his study of trustworthy betting sites not on GamStop for UK at https://nongamstopcasinos.net/gb/non-gamstop-betting-sites/ for his lofty predictions.

Steven A. on our FishDuck Forum posted about these odds a week ago, and I wanted to make sure we revisited and discussed a bit more in-depth how great of an impact some of these transfers like Dillon Gabriel, Jabbar Muhammad, and Evan Stewart have made for the Ducks so early in the summer. Even just being ranked ahead of Georgia or Ohio State, for example, speaks volumes to what Lanning has accomplished so quickly in Eugene. Sure, they both have their fair share of tough matchups on the schedule, but our Ducks do too. This is no slight to any of the best SEC or BIG 10 programs. Oregon is simply in prime position to make a deep run in the expanded College Football Playoff, and we have every reason to be as excited as ever to watch Duck football in 2024.

Now, does this translate straight to victories TODAY? Absolutely not. However, it’s GREAT for recruiting, and offers validation of all the efforts Lanning and his staff have put into crafting a top-tier competitor so early in their composition of this program’s culture.

So just for today, can you see our Ducks going undefeated over Washington, Ohio State, Michigan, and the rest of the 2024 regular season schedule? Which game do you have circled on the calendar ahead of the season? Who has the biggest chance to upset the Ducks this year that we might not have on our radar just yet? Let us know in the FishDuck Forum with decorum.

Go Ducks!

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!
