That being the case I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you and farewell to all who have made this journey so enjoyable. To the schools at whose expense I have plowed the most fertile ground. Then to the FishDuck folks themselves. …

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

Mark Helfrich is no stranger to the Colorado football program. Helfrich got his start there in 2006, becoming the youngest offensive coordinator in the history of Division 1 Football. With that being said, he showed no mercy towards his former team as his Ducks ran over the Buffaloes on their way to a 34-point victory. I got a chance to …

It has become something of a typical Saturday for Marcus Mariota to throw for three touchdowns, 300 plus pass yards, and perhaps a touchdown scamper or two. Oregon is 9-1 with the redshirt junior virtuoso and Heisman favorite Mariota calling the snaps, and has become the envy of the NCAA. It’s no wonder other teams are searching for a “Super Mariota” of their …

Devon Allen Puts Distractions Aside to Focus on Colorado

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

Devon Allen, along with the rest of his team, has been through a lot recently. The two toughest defenses in the Pac-12 in back-to-back weeks would cause a lot of wear and tear for anyone, but for the Ducks, Stanford and Utah packed a special punch.
