Will Chip Kelly Avoid the OREGON MISTAKES at UCLA?

Charles Fischer Editorials 84 Comments

Some of you must think I’m off my rocker, as Chip Kelly is known for great success through his extraordinary 46-7 tenure in Eugene. Yet he made some mistakes that prevented him from winning the National Championship; mistakes that were not football related. The question on my mind: will he repeat these blunders at UCLA? Did he learn and grow from these …

Is Rob Mullens on the Warning Track?

Charles Fischer Editorials 29 Comments

In a spring in which two Oregon teams are contending for national championships in the next two weeks (Women’s Track & Field and Softball), it would appear odd that I call out Rob Mullens on his questionable decisions concerning another program. In baseball, you have a warning track to let you know you might be in danger, and I can’t …

It’s done! It has taken over 100+ hours of work on weekends (30 hours in the last two weekends alone) at night, and in the early mornings and I’ve been laboring on it since last December.

Think This New Offense Will Average 40 PPG? Think Again …

Charles Fischer Editorials 78 Comments

Football, like our real lives, has its ups and downs, and we can’t ignore either. So while I have some reservations about the new developments in the Oregon offense, I do acknowledge that some good things are happening and I wish to cover them, too. But in short, I do not believe you should deviate from the CK/MH offense if …

Some Euphoria and Concerns: First FishDuck Reactions to the Spring Game

Charles Fischer Editorials 17 Comments

You know how it is; Oregon Spring games are hard to truly gauge for accuracy going forward. I could list a ton of examples from the past, but I’m sure you have experienced frustration and fascination from what has unfolded in the many Spring Games you’ve witnessed in the past. For the moment–I simply wish to give those who did …

Charles Fischer Editorials 36 Comments

“He can’t mean me!” I know that many of you were thinking that when you saw the title … but this applies to everyone, including Mr. FishDuck, as the events of the last year and a half got me thinking about this. How loyal would we be if one decision made 42 years ago, which was completely out of the …

The things I overhear while chewing on a new toy from Mr. FishDuck! I shared with you the blustering in our household in another article, and recently I had to pause from licking to consider that someone was called the Godfather of Oregon football. I had to listen closer, as football “tall tales” are legendary at the Fischer residence, and …

FishDuck Philosophy: New Lessons Learned from Recruiting…

Charles Fischer Editorials 45 Comments

Just as Jake Locker got schooled on a blitz in the picture above, I learned about some new aspects of football recruiting this year, none of which I particularly care for. I am developing some ways to mentally prepare for them, some FishDuck Philosophies if you will, which will help overcome the roller-coaster ride that has become the modern day norm in college football recruiting. Consider …

2018 Football Recruiting: “One of the Best Classes EVER”

Charles Fischer Editorials 50 Comments

Lately I’ve heard and read reactions from fellow fans about the 2018 recruiting class such as, “this was an unmitigated disaster” and “pretty good considering all that happened!” In the end–both opinions are correct, as it just depends upon your perspective in addressing the results. I have a usual positive spin from the predicable context angle, but I also want …
