FishDuck Analysts Offer Insights for Cal Game

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

A fun experience as a fan is discussing strategy, Xs and Os, and the Oregon defense with fellow FishDuck analyst DazeNconfused, who is anything but that. He has written some killer articles with tremendous insights at FishDuck, and for a Cal-prep article–I thought the two of us might have some items to watch for in this afternoon’s game. In particular, …

Pros And Cons Of NFL Players Being Paid In Crypto

OregonReigns Editorials

Nowadays, it is not uncommon for professional athletes to be paid in cryptocurrency, especially if they are playing in a country where cryptocurrency is more widely accepted. For example, there have been several professional footballers who have been paid in Bitcoin, and a few NBA players have also started to receive their salaries in crypto. There do not exist exact …

A Sad Reflection: We Could’ve Had Justin Wilcox

Alan Lohner Humor

To our eternal shame and sorrow, Justin Wilcox said “no” when offered the head coaching job of Our Beloved Ducks. Joey Harrington, on behalf of more than a dozen other former Ducks players, pleaded to AD Rob Mullens in a letter: “There is a candidate out there who embodies both the connection to the past and the skill to get …

Oregon Ducks Football: Expectations vs Cal

Alex Heining Editorials

Our Oregon Ducks football program is officially rolling. There’s no better way to say it. Even superstar college football sports analyst (“The Voice of College Football”) Joel Klatt joined Colin Cowherd in agreement that this Oregon team is the most improved squad in the entire nation. Overall, you can’t help but agree as a fan of Our Beloved Ducks. This is …

Oregon Is Aiming for More Than the Playoff

Joshua Whitted Editorials

This past Saturday, Oregon proved it’s one of the best teams in the nation. UCLA has been a top-tier team in a much-improved Pac-12, with a high-flying offense and a solid-enough defense. Chip Kelly’s vision is finally materializing, as Dorian Thompson-Robinson has developed into a very good quarterback, and Zach Charbonnet leads a rushing attack that bears striking resemblance to …

Ducks Victory Leaves Me Speechless

Darren Perkins Editorials

I never experience writer’s block. But, it is funny how I find it much more difficult to come up with something to write when the Ducks play up to their talent and expectations and play, well, as they “should.“ When the Ducks play lousy it is easy for me to come up with a couple of thousand words of criticism …

Ducks Throttle Bruins in ESPN Gameday Romp

Jordan Ingram Editorials

Longtime Los Angeles Dodgers announcer Vin Scully famously said, “Losing feels worse than winning feels good.” And for the past seven weeks, the No. 10 Oregon Ducks (6-1, 4-0) have worked hard not to feel the sting of defeat that struck so swiftly in their season-opening loss to the reigning national champion Georgia Bulldogs. But Oregon isn’t merely avoiding a loss …

Will Dillingham Surprise UCLA…With a Chip Kelly Play?

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

There are some interesting items to watch for in this game today against UCLA, as if there was not enough drama associated with this Pac-12 showdown. Yet in discussing some Xs and Os with FishDuck Analyst, DazeNconfused, recently–we observed some new play roll-outs in the last two games within Oregon’s offense by offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham that hint at more. …

Let Charles E. Kelly Stay Duckless–And Luckless

Alan Lohner Humor

By now, if you’re a regular reader of these half-crazed rants–okay, okay, totally crazed, out-and-out rampages–you are well aware that I’m not an advocate of “Northwest nice.” But that’s only when it comes to things like love and war. And as we all know, football may as well be war, with terminology like “blitz,” “aerial attack,” “defensive line,” “long bomb,” …

How UCLA’s Win Streak Will End in Autzen

Alex Heining Editorials

Our Oregon Ducks Football program gets another chance to make a big, national splash by beating the Bruins tomorrow in Autzen. However, a win’s not going to come easily. This season has been unlike anything we’ve seen from the Bruins in the better part of a decade. UCLA’s been hot from the jump, and it comes as a bit of …
