Five Non-Starters to Watch In Today’s Holiday Bowl

David Marsh Editorials

I have already aired my grievances about December being too busy and how the bowl games are suffering as a result. However, today Oregon plays in the Holiday Bowl against North Carolina and we will get the opportunity to see some backups take the field and hopefully make an impact. Here are five players to watch in today’s game who …

Oregon’s New Will Stein Offense: TemPro With the Pistol?

DazeNconfused Analysis

Oregon’s new young inexperienced offensive coordinator Will Stein is seen as a rising star in the coaching ranks. Though he has just one year as a co-offensive coordinator and play caller, it was only a matter of time until a Power-5 program gave him a shot. Given his new opportunity, the questions of whether Stein will succeed, and what type …

December Is Too Busy and Bowl Season Suffers

David Marsh Editorials

College Football has changed so much in the past decade. In the early 2010s, the value of bowl games was clear for teams and players alike. Making a bowl game, even a bad bowl game, was the reward for a decent, or even good, season. Then starting in 2014, the value of bowl games started to decline with the College …

Oregon Ducks Football: Signing Day Superlatives

Alex Heining Editorials

Signing day was a HUGE success for Dan Lanning and Oregon Ducks football. As our own Charles Fischer chatted about just yesterday, this easily could be one of the best first-year head coach’s recruiting classes ever with how many big swings Lanning took in the past few weeks. Well, those swings have certainly paid off. The gut punch of Dante Moore flipping this …

Dan Lanning: Best First Year Recruiting Class for ANY Oregon HC?

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Recruiting

That is a very tall title…better than Mike Bellotti? Better than Chip Kelly or Mark Helfrich? Better than the recruiting monster Mario Cristobal? We have signings to record up through tomorrow, (the end of this signing period) and possibly in the February signing period as well. But if this is not the best–it will be one of the best first-year …

Could Bo Nix follow Justin Herbert’s NFL Trajectory?

OregonReigns Editorials

Justin Herbert has put the Oregon Ducks on the map at quarterback in the NFL with his stellar performances to lead the Los Angeles Chargers to the brink of a return to the post-season. Although there were initially doubts whether he could raise his game in the NFL, Herbert was a standout in his four seasons for the Ducks. During …

Oregon Will Be Just Fine Without Dante Moore

Joshua Whitted Editorials

Dante Moore flipping his commitment to UCLA at the eleventh hour stinks for Oregon fans. There’s no sugarcoating it. Moore is an elite prospect in every sense of the word, and he is certainly the type of quarterback that coaches across the country would love to build their programs around. He would have been a historic signing for Dan Lanning …

Oregon’s NLI Signing Day Could be Insane

DazeNconfused Recruiting

This Wednesday is the first day of the early signing period where we will see most of the elite college prospects sign their letters of intent. Coach Dan Lanning has the Ducks set up to have a successful recruiting class based on the verbal commitments he already holds. Can Lanning hold those commits, and can he land or flip some …
