The BRAND is Changing: For Oregon Football and FishDuck!

Charles Fischer Announcements

The Oregon Brand has changed with the massive improvements in recruiting, which the fans love, but that change has also marked the demise of the high scoring offense that made Oregon known nationally, which a great many of us have lamented. But let’s face it folks: the recent extension of Coach Mario Cristobal‘s contract has cemented Oregon’s new “tough” label.  …

Moorhead on the Move ALREADY?

Alex Heining Editorials

As the condensed College Football season winds down for the nation and the Ducks, the new hires and transfer reports are starting to boil. There is now a healthy mix of both well-founded and straw-grasping rumors fluttering around the college football ether for programs seeking new coaching talents and prospects from across the nation, and those more desperate than others …

Hubris Illustrated: USC Thinks They’re Better Than Us?

Ryan Robertson Editorials

Oregon won the Pac-12. Fans of other teams, certain writers and even a radio host will try and throw asterisks at the mere presence of Oregon in the championship game, but those other teams didn’t win. One team with a lot to complain about is USC, losers of the Pac-12 Championship. The Trojans played a hard second half, not cutting …

Surprise Stars Propel Oregon to Pac-12 Championship

Joshua Whitted Editorials

Mario Cristobal has firmly established himself as one of the top recruiters in the country. He has proven that it is indeed possible to bring elite talent to Eugene, and under his leadership, the Ducks have compiled the best roster in the Pac-12… on paper. For all of their supposed talent, the Ducks have struggled to find difference makers on …

Ducks Stun USC and Oregon Fans with Los Angeles Surprises

Charles Fischer Editorials

I wished for another “Utah Miracle” yesterday before the Pac-12 Championship Game and received one in Los Angeles! The surprises began from the very start of the game, as the Ducks put together their best defensive showing (considering the competition) of the year and truly pulled together an amazing team performance. Nearly everyone I spoke to before the game was …

Pac-12 Championship GameDay: Can Oregon Pull-Off Another UTAH MIRACLE?

Charles Fischer Editorials

Good gosh, I’m a mess! So many mixed emotions as an Oregon fan. On one hand there’s the embarrassment over the conference’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis, the anger of losing to two teams a great team should never lose to, the disappointment of a defensive regression far worse than anticipated prior to the season, and the frustration of getting …

Jon Joseph, THE WIZARD OF ODDS at FishDuck

Jon Joseph Editorials

28-14, 28-14, 28-14! Take that Vegas Wise Guys! (Calm down JJ; hubris is a witch!) OK, with all due respect to the gods of college football (CFB) I have managed to luck out so far in 2020. A true blessing in a year that has been anything but lucky. A 28-14 betting record is, by far, my best year ever …

The 2020 Pac-12 Championship is a Sham

David Marsh Editorials

2020 has not been a good year for Pac-12 football, and has become a major disappointment for Oregon fans. COVID-19 has taken its toll on all of NCAA Football, but the Pac-12’s decision to start late has left the conference truly undecided heading into championship week. To complicate matters, only one team has actually played all its scheduled games this …

Pac-12 Championship and Beyond: Who’s Poised to Breakout?

Alex Heining Editorials

Our Beloved Ducks’ 2020 football season hasn’t lived up to snuff. It’s been a tumultuous year for the entire country, but we expected more of the outstanding recruits we were able to accumulate over the last couple offseasons. As a fan you can point to the starter turnover, loss of veteran presence, you name it. Then again, we are just fans. …
