Steven Smith Editorials 32 Comments

This site is all about “Our beloved Ducks,” to quote Charles Fischer, our long standing Zen Master.  It’s true: web-foots we are. However, the past two seasons, the Ducks have struggled mightily, and many “die-hard” fans have jumped ship.

Predicting Every Game: Ducks Go 10-2 Plus Win the Alamo Bowl

Darren Perkins Editorials 10 Comments

Sure, the Ducks should be better in 2017. But 10 wins? No way. Yes, Willie Taggart has brought the enthusiasm, the recruiting magic, the superb coaching staff and the Harbaugh moxie (Jim took Michigan from 5-7 to 10-3 in his first season). He may well be the next “it” coach. But it sounds as if the overly optimistic author of …

SPOILED!!

Nathan Roholt Editorials 14 Comments

Spoiled. Of the hundreds of words spoken on that show, it was the one that resonated. Yet, unlike most sports talk shows, that label wasn’t thrown at a player, but this time aimed at fans. Not the fans of the opposing team, either, but the very fans of the team around which the program centered. It was an episode of CSNNW’s ”Talkin’ …

Sacrifice: The Battle Cry of Oregon Football

David Miller Editorials 5 Comments

A vast colosseum lies brooding on the banks of a wide lazy trout-filled river. Surrounded by nothing but forest and thick grass, both barely waving in a gentle breeze under azure cloud-dappled skies. Such is the vision of Autzen Stadium from the top of Skinner’s Butte on game day in the fall. A stadium, a field, soldiers marching to battle …
