Just a little over ten years ago at this time, the final NCAA BCS rankings were released.  At 11-0, The Miami Hurricanes were the only undefeated team and earned the undisputed #1 ranking in each poll.  The Oregon Ducks were one of only four one-loss teams at 10-1, and had done everything right other than their difficult, heartbreaking loss at …

The upcoming Rose Bowl pitting Big-10 champion Wisconsin vs. Pac-12 champion Oregon is not the first time the two teams have met.  A decade ago the Badgers and Ducks played in a home-and-home grudge match that was as bitterly fought of a series as had occurred in recent memory. With the Rose Bowl looming and the recent series tied 1-1, …

 As the Ducks and Badgers begin their preparation for the seemingly fast approaching Rose Bowl Game on January 2nd, it is time to start looking a little deeper at the Ducks opponent. This week, we focus on the Badger offense. The Big 10 champions were able to be successful this season on offense by having a very balanced attack running and throwing. Wisconsin led their …

We have a new coach at Arizona State. Sorry, we take that back. Chip Kelly for the NFL! For what? Go, Matt Barkley. Go pro. The regular season in college football ended a week ago (not counting Army-Navy), leaving everyone who reports or blogs about the sport — like a heroin addict in search of a fix — scurrying high …

I know, I know.  You’re tired of the crowds, you’re tired of the rain, and the people riding the bikes downtown forgot to pay homage to your Family Truckster.  Your wife is making broad hints with the Kay Jewelers ads, your kids want a Kinect For Xbox 360, and the boss has given you the Clark Griswold treatment this year …

For the 3rd straight year, Oregon has been included in a BCS Bowl and thus, playing in one of the the final games of the season. If there is a “price” fans pay to play in the bigger games, it  is that the layover between …

Every week I create video blogs (vlogs), a free-form discussion of current events with Oregon sports and what’s new with FishDuck.com.  It’s a little off-the-cuff, perhaps slightly pretentious, somewhat rambling, and hopefully entertaining…so kick back, relax, and let’s talk a little Duck sports. The views expressed in these videos are strictly my own and do not necessarily reflect the opinions …

It wasn’t the first time Oregon and Oklahoma had played.  Four times previously the Ducks and Sooners had faced off, every time they had trounced Oregon.  It wasn’t pretty how lopsided the series had been. 1958 – Oklahoma 6 Oregon 0 1966 – Oklahoma 17 Oregon 0 1972 – Oklahoma 68 Oregon 3 1975 – Oklahoma 62 Oregon 7 (Oklahoma …
