Charles’ WSU-Oregon FishWrap: “Two Steps Forward and One Step Back”

Charles Fischer Editorials 49 Comments

I am going to write something that is dumber than my usual. In the comments of last week’s article, I expressed my concern about the Ducks getting their butts kicked against the Cougars. It was due to the loss of Justin Herbert at quarterback and how neither QB remaining had neither the skills nor the game experience to carry the Ducks …

Charles Fischer Editorials 77 Comments

Have you ever had such conflicting feelings from an Oregon football game?

Charles Fischer Editorials 52 Comments

My wife burst into the infamous FishDuck.com ManCave late Saturday night and shouted, “What was that huge THUD out there?” I told her … “That was us Oregon fans coming back to Earth.” There is no sugar-coating that game. The Ducks lost to a 1-2 team known for poor defense and are known by all to be in the bottom half of …

Charles Fischer Editorials 65 Comments

Can you adjust to the new FishDuck? The one that has transformed from a cheerleader (always) of our beloved Ducks to a publisher that has views both positive and negative about what he sees? I know it is hard, as the former is how he’s been for the majority of the six years of the site. But this new, balanced …

Charles’s Oregon-Nebraska FishWrap: “A Perfect Game”

Charles Fischer Editorials 69 Comments

Let me clarify that title: it was a perfect game in that we fans, the players and the Oregon coaching staff learned a ton while still winning the game. You do not learn as much from a Southern Utah game as you do in a game against Nebraska, hence this was ideal for the coaches as a wake-up call in …

Charles Fischer Editorials 44 Comments

Boy — the concerns by Mr. FishDuck about this team written on this website seem about as probable as a victory by SUU on Saturday. Yet, the Pac-12 Network and Mr. FishDuck have pointed out some new observations that are worth pondering. While there are still some questions lingering about with the Ducks, it is evident that when they score 77 points, something special is …

Oregon Football, and New Looks all the Way Around!

Charles Fischer Editorials 6 Comments

We at FishDuck.com have a lot in common with Oregon football, in that we both have a completely new look going into fall 2017. The only similarity with the Kelly/Helfrich offense to the Willie Taggart offense is that they are both zone read spread offenses, and things depart significantly from there. You will see a power-running component and an attack …
