SEC (Southeastern Chickens) Renounce Roosting in Autzen

Jon Joseph Editorials 4 Comments

May rabies ravage the Dawgs and anthrax annihilate the Aggies! It’s not as if Oregon‘s Athletic Directors haven’t made a valiant effort. The Ducks once had home engagements scheduled with the Georgia Bull Dogs and the Texas A&M Aggies, only to be left at the altar by that castrated, chicken whip, canine University of Georgia, as well as being dumped …

Chip Kelly Update: Not That Good Yet

Mark Saltveit NFL 1 Comment

Philadelphia lost on the road to the Carolina Panthers Sunday. That shouldn’t be such a huge shock. Carolina is undefeated after seven games, with an excellent defense featuring two of the league’s best linebackers (Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis) and the NFL’s hottest young cornerback (Josh Norman). On offense, they have a creative running game, featuring two stars that Chip …

Roger Goodell’s Secret Draft Day Tweets

Kim Hastings FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

It has to get tiresome for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. He steps to the microphone to announce draft picks and gets booed. Sure he handled the Adrian Peterson case with all the finesse of a jackhammer going through creme brulee. Sure he waffled so many times during the Ray Rice case that the 2015 NFL season is sponsored by Bisquick. You bet …

The dust has all but settled from the Ducks’ historic 2014-15 season featuring a trip to the inaugural College Football Playoff, a Rose Bowl victory, and the first Heisman trophy winner in school history. It is time to look ahead to the 2015-16 season and retool for another National Championship run. The biggest concern facing this squad as they take …

With Oregon on the verge of what could be the greatest season in the history of the program, I’d like to take you back to the biggest game that the Ducks have ever played in. Let’s go back to that 2010 season. The Ducks smashed and destroyed everyone in their path, going 12-0. Oregon led the nation in scoring at 47 …

Oregon’s Title Chances of the 21st Century

Will Denner FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

With another National Championship at stake, the 2014 Ducks are attempting to accomplish something that no team before them in program history has done successfully. Under the new College Football Playoff system, the Ducks are one semifinal win away from returning to the title game, which would be their first appearance since 2011. Although that 2010-2011 team was the first to …

Why Chip Kelly REALLY Came Back To Oregon

Daniel Hendricks FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 4 Comments

It’s the multi-million dollar question, isn’t it?  Why would a rising star decide to abandon a sure shot at coaching in the big show, only to return to a small town college football program?  Personally, I hope it’s because Chip Kelly was listening to “Max and Marcellus” a few weeks back on ESPN Radio.  Neither Max Kellerman nor Marcellus Wiley …

What Were the Refs Looking at: The Worst Calls in Oregon History

FishDuck Staff History 0 Comments

Referees have a tough job, we all know this. They also are the ultimate scapegoat, disliked by all for their stubborn impartiality in an emotional game and apparent lack of proper vision or understanding of the rules…or so we often claim as fans out of frustration when things don’t go our way. Usually they are the silent overseers properly calling …
