The Ducks Always Have Running Back Problems

Ryan Robertson Editorials 26 Comments

Oregon is a running back powerhouse. Many great Ducks have been in contention for the Doak Walker Award for the nation’s best RB over the years, and some were even considered as Heisman candidates.

The 2019 recruiting process was a bit of a whirlwind when it came to cornerbacks. After the sudden de-commitment of Marques Caldwell and Elijah Blades, the second reserve slot was left open. Sure, Mykael Wright, who went on to have a fantastic first season, had Ducks fans feeling somewhat confident about the future of the cornerback position, but there was …

Jim Maloney History 14 Comments

Oregon has had some pretty exciting offenses over the years, and those offenses have been led by some of the best minds in the business. Some Duck offensive coordinators have had relatively unremarkable careers after leaving Oregon, others went on to great accomplishments. Several years ago, I wrote an article on the offensive coordinators who coached at Oregon prior to Mike Bellotti.

Darren Perkins Editorials 52 Comments

For all the glitz, glamour and recognition one receives for being the first pick in the NFL Draft, it usually means  going to an awful team. That’s why, especially as a quarterback, falling a bit in the first round can be beneficial to long-term success. I firmly believe the Oregon coaching staff did not get the most out of Justin …

Oregon Fans Love THE DUCK!

Brent Pennington The Duck 28 Comments

We Oregon fans love our Ducks, but there is a singular duck we love; “The Duck”. Since we are in time-out relative to live sports, and sports stories about Oregon’s teams have slowed to a mere trickle, maybe it will be fun to off-track to discuss The Duck. Please comment at the end on the mental images and memories you …

Mario Cristobal Stocks the Recruiting Larder With Latest Hire
