(Publisher Note: Can you believe our FishDuck Friend DazeNconfused writing an article through incredible pain during recovery from major spinal surgery? This was not asked for, but he has a passion for Our Beloved Ducks and this FishDuck community, and I cannot thank him enough!)

The Oregon-Dillingham Offense: The New Arc Zone Read

Coach Eric Boles Analysis

After three weeks of college football, the Oregon Ducks offense has emphatically declared its identity. They are a physical unit based around the run game, that is also going to stretch defenses both horizontally and vertically through the air; they’re going to attack. One of the run concepts that these Ducks have used to set a tone the last couple …

From the Bleachers: Kenny Dillingham’s ‘Gimme Shelter’ Offense

Drex Heikes Editorials

The opening riff of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll song in history was written and played by Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. “There’s something almost mystical about it,” Richards said of his start to Gimme Shelter. “When hit in the right way at the right moment, a cheap ride to heaven.” Say the same for the dazzling offense Kenny Dillingham …

Would Willie Taggart Have Outperformed Mario Cristobal?

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

These are not two of your favorite people to contemplate right now, but I would ask for your indulgence and fantasizing along with me. I understand how people are angry at Coach Willie Taggart for leaving after only one year, but if Coach Mario Cristobal had been offered his dream job in Florida after only one year–wouldn’t he have bolted …

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

It’s free! A tremendous GameDay discussion thread in the Our Beloved Ducks forum that we invite you to join. But first, you need to know this best payout online casino and I am wondering who remembers the “Belly-Bop” safety on Heisman Trophy winner Ty Detmer of BYU by Oregon’s massive Nose Tackle (No. 69 above) Marcus Woods in 1990? I’d …

Do We Really Have to Play Boring and Blue BYU?

Alan Lohner Humor

BYU–alternately known as Boring You Unmercifully–arrives as a wooden and waxen opponent this weekend for Our Beloved Ducks, and no, we don’t want them around any more than you want your dimwitted Aunt Mildred sitting at your Thanksgiving table two months from now. Somehow, and there must be fowl play involved, these lugubrious oafs from Utah got added to our …

Setting the Edge in Oregon’s Lanning/Lupoi Defense

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Analysis

You will often hear the phrase, “setting the edge” or a reference to the “force defender” when you watch television football games, and it makes sense to take a few minutes to observe how the new Oregon defense under head coach Dan Lanning, and defensive coordinator Tosh Lupoi fulfill this important mission. How important is it? A Pac-12 team recently won …
