It can be both a good and bad thing when a team has a bye week. For the Ducks, it’s more of a good thing as they were pretty banged up going into the Utah game last Saturday. Against the Utes, it seemed as if the “injury bug” continued biting Oregon’s key players such as center Hroniss Grasu, cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu and tight end …

FishDuck.com writer Ashley Young interviewed Marcus Mariota at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex today. This morning’s interview with Mariota was short and sweet, and focused on his teammates rather than the upcoming game against Colorado — the last game in Autzen Stadium this season! Did it go by super fast, or is it just me? The first teammate that Mariota was asked about was Pharaoh Brown. Mariota explained that …

In an interview for FishDuck.com Thursday, I spoke with Oregon’s offensive lineman Doug Brenner at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex. Football is rough and rugged. It will often leave you with scars, sore muscles and bruises. In a season that has been full of injuries, no team knows that better than the Ducks. Although Oregon’s record indicates that they’re 9-1, which has them at …

Three Takeaways from the Oregon vs. Utah Game

What a dogfight, what a battle, what a game that was for the Ducks. Last night, Oregon flocked out of Rice-Eccles Stadium with 51-27 victory over the tough Utah Utes. It wasn’t easy for Oregon to win this game as Utah exemplifies a team with immense heart and wouldn’t go down without a solid fight. Offensively, the Ducks were unstoppable …

To the average fan, Oregon looked good this past Saturday. Our offense dominated, Ifo made some great plays, and we got to watch the UCLA head coach and defensive coordinator share a moment of passion. But for those of you who watched the game the way I did, you saw something else. You saw our defense get torched by a good, …

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 …

Tyrone Nared stepped up to the foul line for a one and one with 1:00 remaining. He would make both ends, pushing the lead to 82-76. And with that, the Ducks were able to hold on for a 90-81 win against Colorado, and take the front end of the important final two-game home stand. Said Oregon coach Dana Altman after the game “All we have done …
