Oregon's QB1: Who Gets The Nod Week 1? Eugene, OR - FishDuck.com

Oregon’s QB1: Who Gets The Nod Week 1?

Alex Heining Editorials, Recruiting

Most of the Oregon fan base believes the spring game can say a lot about the state of Our Beloved Ducks program. Generally, with a returning coaching staff and most of the same pieces, that’s usually the case. However this season, I can’t say I agree. We’re in the earliest stages of our new head coach Dan Lanning’s command. But …

Should Oregon Football Fear USC?

Should Oregon Football Fear USC?

Alex Heining Editorials

This has been a turbulent offseason to say the least for Oregon. On top of the Mario Cristobal fiasco and a ton of talent jumping ship, there’s a new head honcho in Los Angeles. Lincoln Riley is set to stabilize the program with championship-contending culture after years of high turnover at head coach. How does this impact the Oregon Ducks’ future of recruiting? …

The Temporary Nature of 2022 College Football

Alex Heining Editorials

The world of football is in a position unlike anything we’ve seen before. Players have grown with star power over their respective team’s coaching staffs and management to an unprecedented point, and the fallout is beginning to culminate with both coaches and players. Even middling talent has begun a movement to jump ship with higher and higher volume, leaving their …

Kayvon Thibodeaux Cannot Fall in the 2022 NFL Draft

Alex Heining Editorials

Narratives are manufactured to orchestrate reaches and steals in the NFL Draft every offseason. Whether that result be intentional or not, the associated narratives often hold little validity. Here’s what people are saying about Kayvon Thibodeaux, one of Our Beloved Ducks’ best and brightest. Thibodeaux’s “Character Issues” This is the most dumbfounding narrative to me. Since he has interests outside of football, …

Oregon’s Pass Rush Situation in 2022

Alex Heining Editorials

The offseason is officially in full swing with the NFL culminating in a Rams’ Super Bowl victory yesterday. We now can prepare for spring football, focus on the new faces on Our Beloved Ducks’ roster, and set expectations for the 2022 season. Today, let’s hone in on a big question mark for the defense: what’s going to come of a …

Travis Dye OUT: Who Earns the Job?

Alex Heining Editorials

This transfer surprised me more than former head coach Mario Cristobal abandoning his post and shipping out to Miami. Lincoln Riley is as good of a college coach as a running back could ask for, but it seemed probable that Travis Dye would take his talents to the NFL next season. Sure, he may not have been a top pick in the …

Robby Ashford Gone: Expectations for the Ducks’ Offseason?

Alex Heining Editorials

Two days ago, it was announced Robby Ashford would enter the transfer portal. After countless discussions, articles, and efforts from Our Beloved Ducks’ fanbase to figure out what to expect of this team’s offense (that showed wonderful signs of life in the passing game during the season’s concluding bowl game), we see another all-time great recruit heading somewhere new. This …

Oregon Football New Quarterback Bo Nix Eugene, Oregon

Why Bo Nix Should NOT Start at Oregon

Alex Heining Editorials

The transfer portal has given Oregon another quarterback who has had struggles in the past and is pushing for a chance at playing in the NFL. Bo Nix I feel is more complete as a quarterback than Anthony Brown is (or was at this respective stage of his transfer), there’s just one major issue I have with Our Beloved Ducks’ …

An Ideal Candidate to Replace Mario Cristobal

Alex Heining Uncategorized

Regardless of how head coach Mario Cristobal made his exit from Oregon, the entrance he made we cannot forget. Recruiting some of the most talented players in team history will create monumental waves rippling far past 2021, and continue to contribute to a team culture that creates expectation of great skill entering the program for years to come. Now, the …

Oregon’s Defensive Fire Follows Sewell

Alex Heining Editorials

Behind a couple of truly deflating losses this season, there has been one shining star that even with the growing pains of being a young linebacker, has brought a new energy and inspiration to a core of backers that has needed direction since Troy Dye left for the NFL. Noah Sewell has been that bright spot for Our Beloved Ducks, noted early …

Dye’s Ducks Now, Cardwell’s Ducks Next?

Alex Heining Editorials

The pressure of Our Beloved Ducks becoming a legitimate contender closing out this season and in the near future will come down to how the incredible backfield depth Oregon possesses is utilized. The defense is playing inspired, and with the quarterback play in question (especially against the Huskies), the stable of talented running backs has never felt more like the …

Oregon’s Best Uniforms of 2021

Alex Heining Editorials

Here at FishDuck, we’ve been tough-but-fair with our team. This season has been a “mystery” in many instances with the ups and downs of a youthful team, which couldn’t fit in more perfectly with a season than Halloween. The underlying question of that mystery is guaging how much of the young talent we have that’s been realized already, and how …
