Are the 2016 Oregon Ducks a Lost Cause?

David Miller Editorials Leave a Comment

Is this season a lost cause? Many fans are already asking the question, just five games into a 12-game season. The struggles have been well documented. The defense not getting any consistent pressure, the linebackers out of position, missed tackles at every level. The offense humming one minute, then pedestrian the next. Repeated attempts to run up the middle despite …

Oregon Duck Basketball Is Ready for ‘Final Four’ Flight

Kellen Garrett Editorials Leave a Comment

Dreary days have come to Eugene. The glowing, summer sun that represents the hype and hope that Oregon Duck football brings, is gone. For all intents and purposes the season is done, despite the fact that there are seven games left. As the losses compound, the panic is palpable. With three losses before the second day of October, a perplexingly …

Mark Helfrich’s Quarterback MESS at Oregon

Charles Fischer Editorials Leave a Comment

We have read the pundits in the media along with the opinions from the ”experts” on the Oregon message boards; the quarterback recruiting in the past at Oregon has been a disaster after Marcus Mariota, and the present is a muddled mess due to the emergence of freshman QB Justin Herbert unsettling the usual quarterback rotation. These assertions would sound something …

Buckle Up: Time To Ride the Oregon Football Roller Coaster

David Miller Editorials Leave a Comment

It used to be that Oregon fans made light of the other teams in the Pac-12 for their roller coaster seasons. You know the ones I’m talking about. Where they have pre-season hopes, maybe some hype around a returning quarterback or running back, maybe even a pre-season ranking, then fall flat on their face against some middling competition. Only they …

Overlooked No Longer, Brenden Schooler Flies as Oregon Duck Safety Net

Kellen Garrett Editorials Leave a Comment

A trendy criticism of the Oregon Ducks is their defense – or lack of it. When fans take a look at the field Saturday they may notice that defensive coordinator Brady Hoke‘s defense will feature only one senior in the starting lineup.

Has Oregon Football Descended From Elite Status?

Aaron Lewis Editorials Leave a Comment

Soul Searching Until Saturday, the idea of Oregon losing to Colorado any time in the foreseeable future was unimaginable. The Buffaloes have been the punching bag of the Pac-12 for years – the automatic win on the schedule for essentially everyone in the conference. Oregon fell to an improved Colorado team last weekend, and the football team has been doing some soul searching …

Forget Duck Season. It’s Open Season on Feet!

Mike Merrell Editorials Leave a Comment

Mike Merrell’s Three-and-Out Any team this determined to shoot itself in the foot should not wear fluorescent orange shoes. It makes it just too easy. They should wear green shoes that match the color of the turf. Or if they HAVE to be exotic, they could go with camo. Anything to give the poor feet a sporting chance. Besides that …

Why You Hate the Oregon Ducks

David Miller Editorials Leave a Comment

This article is for the fans of every other Pac-12 team. These are the fans that hate the Oregon Ducks, even though the reason is different for each and every one. The dislike could be caused by Oregon’s sparkling facilities and uniforms, winning streaks or notable victories (at the cost of an embarrassing defeat for another team). Here at FishDuck.com, …
