Mark Helfrich Knows the Ducks Aren’t Out of the Woods, Yet

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

At a quick glance, the Stanford game was great. The Ducks won by nearly 30 points, Ty Montgomery didn’t score, and Thomas Tyner scored two TDs in his return. Yes, that’s all fine and dandy, but the Ducks still have a few things to fine tune before they start thinking about the playoffs. Tonight I got a chance to sit …

Sunday Reaction: Ducks Making Progress, Still Have a Long Way to Go

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 8 Comments

First, let me just say, WOOOOO!! The Ducks finally, and by finally I mean it’s been three years, beat Stanford. In a game that was Oregon’s from the opening kickoff, the Ducks showed a lot of grit and intensity in a solid win against a Stanford team that, although may not be great, was definitely nothing to scoff at. Being the Devil’s …

Following His Best Game of the Season, Troy Hill Is Ready for Stanford

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

The Oregon Ducks’ secondary knew the Cal game would be big. Jared Goff and the the Bears’ passing attack came in to the game on an absolute rampage. Even though Goff carved Oregon up for much of the game, the secondary made big plays when it mattered most and did about as much as they could’ve done against a team …

Freshmen Continue to Impress Everyone, Including Helfrich

What do Charles Nelson (above), Devon Allen, and Royce Freeman all have in common? Well, besides being freak-of-nature athletes, they’re all freshmen. Although there are many more freshmen players on the team that are out there making their impact, these three have been the cream of the crop. Starting withn Allen, the track star who plays football in his free …

Well, there we have it. Another Ducks win by double digits, Oregon beats Cal for the sixth straight time, and the collegiate history at Levi’s Stadium gets kicked off with a Ducks win. As of right now, if the season ended today, Oregon would make the first ever College Football Playoff (loud cheers heard throughout Eugene). Experts predict it would …

Doesn’t Matter Where They Are, Tony Washington is Ready to Play

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

In an interview for FishDuck.com, I got a chance to talk to OLB Tony Washington about the upcoming game while at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex. It’s big. It’s loud. It’s Levi’s Stadium. In the first college game ever played at the 49ers new home, you can imagine how excited some of the players are to take the field.   Eh, actually, …

Kenny Who? Bassett Could be a New Face in RB Rotation

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 3 Comments

While watching Oregon’s game with Washington on Saturday, two questions burned in my head. Firstly, why was Royce Freeman getting so many carries? Second, why was Kenny Bassett, No. 31, getting a significant number of carries? Where the heck were Byron Marshall and Thomas Tyner? The final game stats showed Freeman getting a majority of the work load with 29 …

Please God, No More Injuries for my College Fantasy Football Team

Dear Deshaun Watson (and fans of Clemson Football), I’d like to apologize. You were looking so good, and Clemson was on such a roll, and then I took you for my College Fantasy team. I’ve given in to my curse. Two straight weeks, two straight Heisman hopefuls injured. Taysom Hill, I apologize to you as well. After your injury I figured that was …

Stars Look to Bounce Back in College Fantasy Football

To get this out of the way now … I have lost my place as No. 1. It was a great run while it lasted, but for now I have been banished to (I hate to even speak it out loud) fifth place. I didn’t have a bad week necessarily; I finished with 178 points, which was actually my third-highest scoring …

Moving up the Leaderboard in College Fantasy Football

Well, it was my best week yet. Not by much, only three points actually, but it was enough to vault me to the very top (No. 1, baby!) of the Fans of Oregon Ducks group. Out of 2,658 people, through four weeks, I’m the cream of the crop. Out of the millions of people that play ESPN’s College Football Challenge, I’m …

College Fantasy Football Week 3: Can’t Go Wrong if His Last Name Is Hill

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 3 Comments

For the third consecutive week, my college team has put up huge fantasy numbers. That was thanks in large part to my starting quarterbacks, Kenny and Taysom Hill (not related) of Texas A&M and BYU, who scored 34 and 31 points respectively. Connor Halliday led the way for all quarterbacks, scoring a miraculous 45 fanatsy points. His week by week totals …

College Fantasy Football Leagues: The New Drug

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Starting Thursday night, you cling to the edge of your couch screaming for your fantasy team player to score a touchdown. You shoot up out of your seat and jump around every time your starting defense picks off the opposing quarterback. You curse and yell when you watch your No. 1 running back fumble the ball on the goal line. The …
