The Path to Glory Is Covered in Blue-Blood

Matt Bryant Editorials 11 Comments

There’s been a lot of grousing about preseason rankings and critics. When did Ducks fans develop such a thin skin? Rather than pound the table, I say bring it on. To the national pundits we’re known as the Blur or Track Town, USA. Speed may impress, but it doesn’t always earn long-term respect. We hear it all the time. They …

Next Year’s Playoff: Ducks, Bucks, And The SEC

Noah Smith FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 3 Comments

Let me give you a fair warning here, I am from New Orleans, Louisiana; I live outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Outside of Oregon, the LSU Tigers are my favorite college team. I give you that qualifying statement so you’ll understand when I say that I believe the SEC is the strongest conference, top down, in college football. Part of …

Omar Garibay FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

He stood on the sidelines as a redshirt freshman, and unlike many other first-year players, he had experienced a magical season. First it was one win, then it was another, and as the weeks and months progressed, his team kept on winning. The magical ride that he was on was memorable, not only for himself and his teammates, but for …

Can Oregon’s Dynamic Offense Continue to Flourish?

Omar Garibay FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

Offense is fun, offense is exciting. We want to see the big plays. We want to see Royce Freeman bulldoze his way to the end zone. We want to see Marcus Mariota drop back and complete a 50 yard pass, and we want to see the Ducks light up the score board. There is one problem, however. Can you rely solely on offense if …

The Ducks Exorcise the Stanford ‘Demon’

Austin Willhoft FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

I’ll be honest, Saturday night was one of the best nights I ever had. The Ducks finally took down the Cardinal after experiencing two disappointing performances in the past two season games. Oregon defeated Stanford in a 45-16 blowout victory that ultimately helps the Ducks’ hopes of getting into the playoffs. Marcus Mariota finally beat Stanford and threw for more than 250 …

  If you were not near a TV or news feed today, then you missed out on some of the greatest games we have seen all season.  When it is Rivalry Week, you can just throw out the records and expect both teams to bring it.  So many exciting finishes, and I think we just might have a Heisman winner …

Gut wrenching times with Chip Kelly

Sam Arney FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 8 Comments

With the new era of Helfrich football just over the rise, I thought it would be a good time to look back at the Chip Kelly era. Specifically the most gut wrenching parts of it.  As we are all huge Ducks fans, some of the most vivid memories we have over the last four seasons are the losses.  Chip Kelly was such a …
