  Greetings Fish Friends! Every week I create video blogs (vlogs) to update all you fine folk on all things FishDuck, a free-form discussion of current events about Oregon Ducks sports and all that’s new with FishDuck.com, with the occasional off-topics or rants.  It’s a little off-the-cuff, perhaps slightly pretentious, somewhat rambling, and hopefully entertaining…so kick back, relax, drink up, …

OH GOD, OH GOD, OHGODOHGODOHGOD!

Charcoal Sunday (almost black but, at the end, not quite) was a heart attack in the making. I was wandering around the house, muttering about the 49ers. “Sassafraassin’ Kyle sassafrassin’ Williams, mutter ‘sassaf’, mutter, mutter, spit, mutter sassafrassin’.”   I tried to feel better. I read my email. Hmmm…male enhancement…must be a notification about changes at the post office. Hmmm…single …

The full court press: Ducks Basketball has unfinished business too

FishDuck Staff FishWrap, FishWrap Archive

So much hoopla surrounded the Ducks football program in the last week or so, specifically whether head coach Chip Kelly would officially leave for the NFL or not. Kelly said one thing that got me thinking, “I have some unfinished business.” When he made that statement I think all Duck fans’ reactions were almost unanimously…ecstatic. While I too was happy …

The Fish Report: Chip’s Final Rose Bowl Surprises

Josh Schlichter Fish Reports

After all the smoke has cleared, there are a few key certainties. One: The Rose Bowl is one of the most important victories in the history of Oregon Football. Two: Despite losing two great leaders on offense, Oregon will be reloaded next fall with a bright, new horizon. As I was digging around to find more material to cover I …

RECRUITING RECAP: Kelly, Twitter, and Shaq…OH MY!!!

Mark Flores FishWrap, FishWrap Archive

Football Recruiting: This past Sunday night was nothing short of tumultuous for Oregon fans. While Coach Chip Kelly’s decision to stay in Eugene generates some obvious outcomes, it also carries long-reaching, yet subtler, recruiting effects. As an observer and Duck fan, I immediately gravitated towards a pair of conclusions. To begin, Kelly’s rejection of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offer indicates …

Chip’s misdirection a roller coaster ride for fans

Josh White FishWrap, FishWrap Archive

What an eventful past 22 days it has been for the Oregon Ducks, and for all of us as fans. Even after the football team has played it’s final down, the edge of your seat thrill ride just never stops. Now, there are some who are able to tune out the off-season noise altogether and really don’t pay much attention again until September. For …

Chip or no Chip, now the Rose Bowl means even more

“You guys can do better than that,” announcer Don Essig implored to the Matthew Knight Arena crowd, which had already been cheering joyously for the Oregon football team as its players gathered at midcourt during halftime of Saturday’s basketball game against UCLA. “That’s your Pac-12 and Rose Bowl champion!” And with that, the crowd really roared to new eardrum-piercing heights. …

Stars brighten Duck football recruiting

FishDuck Staff FishWrap, FishWrap Archive

It’s getting to be the best gazing time for college football recruiting. The stars are aligning. Some glimmer brightly. Some are dimming a bit. Will the nation’s No. 1-ranked high school lineman Arik Armstead of Elk Grove, Calif., end up at Cal, Notre Dame or Oregon? What about wide receiver Thomas Johnson of Dallas, Texas? Is he a Duck lean …
