Welcome to the most relieved website on Earth. Just when it appeared the Ducks’ domination of the Huskies might come to an end, Washington turned to its hurry-up offense and scored in just under a Millenia.

Mike Merrell’s Three-and-Out Every school has its irritating fans, and the Ducks are certainly no exception.

Spencer Thomas FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

I wrote this past Thursday that Oklahoma State would be a tough matchup for the men of Oregon in the NCAA Tournament round of sixty-four. The Ducks would need to play the game at their pace, limit turnovers, and limit Cowboy sharpshooter Phil Forte to ensure victory. After a hard-fought 79-73 victory, it is time to examine whether these predictions …

With only one second left on the clock, the Utes were unable to answer back and the celebration started on the court. For the second time this year, Oregon took down No.17 Utah in …

It’s no secret that the Oregon Ducks men’s basketball team has flown under the radar all season long. Despite the fact that the Ducks have one of the youngest rosters in the Pac-12 conference, head coach Dana Altman has established a winning environment by preaching ball movement, unselfishness and pride.

Thanks For the Memories: Tribute to Our Skinny Hawaiian

Noah Smith FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

With the upcoming departure of Marcus Mariota, I’d just like a moment to review and reflect on our beloved Skinny Hawaiian’s astounding career. In the coming days you will likely hear from ESPN how Mariota’s stock has fallen because of the Championship Game, and in the case of some, they might even say he shouldn’t be a first round pick …

Imagine this: Oregon loses to Florida State in the Rose Bowl. Allow that to sink into your mind for a second. Now, what if I told you that the Ducks lost to the Seminoles because of the poor support Marcus Mariota was getting from his offensive line. Most Duck or football fans in general should not be surprised if this …
