Chris Charbonnier FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

We’ve all heard it: “recruiting rankings don’t matter”. Usually, someone says this on the message boards after our favorite team picks up a commitment from a two or three-star player who is “underrated”. Well, it is true, recruiting rankings mean nothing in terms of on-field production, but do they act as a good predictor of success? I defer to Matt …

FishDuck Staff FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

He’s honest, down-to-earth, talented, forthcoming, and most importantly; he’s humble. He is Dana Altman. The Oregon Ducks Men’s Basketball head coach. In only his second season he has coached his 2011-2012 team to a 16-7 overall record, and a 7-4 Pac-12 Conference record.

In this week’s FishDuck Minute-we get an interesting summary of the Oregon Defense by USC Coach Lane Kiffin, which gives us pause to reflect.

  In recent weeks, the $63 million expansion to Oregon’s Len Casanova Center has been in the news as construction has begun on the 130,000 square foot project.

Got Butte? Duck signee does

FishDuck Staff FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Thirty some odd years ago, I found myself in Butte, Mont., one Saturday in football season loaded up on sauce and ready to cheer and perhaps rumble. Carroll College at Montana Tech. The Fighting Saints at the Orediggers. The funny part is I don’t recall today who won the game. I was going to Carroll at the time (before transferring …

FishDuck Staff FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Last Sunday the Ducks and Beavers played against one another for an NCAA-record 336th time. Contrary to the typical talk about the Civil War, the electrifying exchanges about Sunday’s clash before and during were not so much about the game itself. Rather, the conversation was about all of the details that make this rivalry so intense. As it should be. …
