Oregon Football: Ducks Survive Dawgs, Monsoon of Early Miscues

Jordan Ingram Editorials

There’s nothing worse than wrestling a wet dawg. But it’s worth it for the No. 4 Oregon Ducks (8-1, 5-1), who overcame a brutal first-half monsoon of baffling miscues on offense to defeat regional rival Washington Huskies 26-16 on Saturday night in Seattle. And for those watching at home, we all endured Robert Griffin III’s play-by-play, which was wobbly at best and sprinkled with …

Can Oregon Put Jimmy Lake on the Hot Seat?

David Marsh Editorials

It’s going to come up in tomorrow’s game against the Washington Huskies that, according to last year’s silly rules due to COVID-19, Washington “won” the North. Last year I wrote a whole article proclaiming the Pac-12 Championship game being a sham, especially if Washington backdoored its way into the game while not playing Oregon. Washington’s head coach Jimmy Lake proclaimed …

The Oregon Offense: Double Pull Power RPO

Coach Eric Boles Analysis

The Oregon Ducks currently sit as the number one scoring offense in the Pac-12 conference. They have done so behind a well balanced attack orchestrated by Coach Joe Moorhead. Though the passing game continues to improve with each passing week, it is the run schemes that have caught my eye. The Ducks are doing exactly what Coach Mario Cristobal set …

Joshua Whitted Editorials

The College Football Playoff Committee loves stirring the pot, don’t they? Tuesday’s initial rankings once again raised more than a few eyebrows across the country. Some of the biggest surprises included Alabama debuting at No. 2, Oregon landing in the top four, and undefeated Cincinnati ranking at No. 6. The Committee made plenty of good calls this time around, but …

52-29? Just Like the “Good Ol’ Days!” And Time to Give Credit…

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

Admit it…with the way the offense was scoring on Saturday with the crowd roaring and all the explosion plays–it felt like the “Good Ol’ Days,” didn’t it? I was feeling an excitement and a particular twinge with it, and realized that I had not felt that in a long time. What was it? Then it hit me: this was how …

Oregon Football: Cardwell the Ducks’ Next Star RB?

Jordan Ingram Editorials

It was the hit heard around the sports world. In 2009, the Oregon Ducks had just lost 19-8 at Boise State. In Chip Kelly’s first year as head coach, it was a difficult loss on national television for the Ducks, who were coming off a huge Rose Bowl win the previous year. Postgame emotions were running high, to say 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 …
