Five Takeaways From Oregon’s Week 1 Drubbing of Portland State

Jordan Ingram Editorials

Of all the stats this weekend, the most impressive was The Duck’s 546 push-ups during No. 15 Oregon’s 81-7 beatdown of Portland State on Saturday at Autzen Stadium in Eugene. Seriously impressive. Mascots aside, the Oregon Ducks’ Week 1 showing was everything fans were hoping for and a little bit more. Scratch that — a whole lot more. In their …

Oregon Fans Should Brace for Lanning’s Mudslinging Strategy

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

All the changes to college football with the portal, NIL, conference realignment and media rights have created discussions we never dreamed of having as Oregon fans even five years ago. The change has been so rapid as to easily surpass our patience with much of it, and yet when you have movement one direction–there are equal repercussions in other directions, …

Ducks, Beavers in Battle for Holiday Bowl Bid

Jordan Ingram Analysis

Between long periods of silent reflection, handwringing, bargaining with the football gods and frequent public outbursts in a nightgown and slippers, Oregon Ducks fans are likely spending the weekend unshaven and waiting for the College Football Playoff to announce its top four teams and (yawn) the rest of the bowl games. All joking aside, the Ducks are likely headed to …

Despite OSU Loss, Oregon Football’s Future is Bright

Jordan Ingram Editorials

If you’re like me, you don’t need a rehashing of the No. 9 Oregon Ducks‘ soul-crushing 38-34 loss to the Beavers on Saturday night at Reser Stadium. I’m not going to harp on the risky coaching decisions that paved the way for a loss. And there is no sense pointing out DJ Johnson‘s apparent sucker punch of a Beavers fan …

Jordan Ingram Analysis

The No. 15 Oregon Ducks’ (3-1) stroke-inducing 44-41 comeback victory against an unranked (but mighty talented) Washington State at the Palouse was a key win for Oregon head coach Dan Lanning and the program he is building in Eugene.

Oregon Football: Georgia Loss Won’t Define Lanning, Ducks

Jordan Ingram Editorials

For those still reeling from the Oregon Ducks’ 49-3 loss in Week 1 to the Georgia Bulldogs, let’s take a walk down memory lane. The anticipation amongst Oregon fans heading into the 2009-10 football season was off the charts.

Oregon Ducks Football: Three Things to Watch for Against Georgia

Alex Heining Editorials

Finally! Ducks football is back! All offseason questions about Our Beloved Ducks will be answered in less than 24 hours, and it couldn’t be a more exciting matchup. To start the 2022 season, Oregon is touching down in Georgia to try to knock off last year’s national champions this Saturday. How they play through this 60-minute in Athens should tell …

Oregon Won’t Become Georgia Overnight

Joshua Whitted Editorials

By all accounts, the Oregon Ducks knocked it out of the park by hiring Dan Lanning. The young, talented coach is an ace recruiter, a defensive mastermind and a forward-thinker. Considering Mario Cristobal left the cupboard pretty full for Lanning and his staff, it makes sense to assume the Ducks are positioned to continue making a push toward the College …

BOOM or BUST? How Lanning Can Silence the Doubters

Joshua Whitted Editorials

Dan Lanning was a risky hire. The 36-year-old former defensive coordinator has no head coaching experience, and frankly, he has little experience as a coordinator, as well. Aside from spending two years working at Arizona State, he has no ties to the West. And while there are one-off success stories of young, hot-shot coordinators knocking it out of the park …

The news of the nation’s No. 1 offensive tackle recruit Josh Conerly Jr. choosing the Oregon Ducks over the USC Trojans and Washington Huskies shook the college football world to its core and send shockwaves throughout the social media stratosphere (If you are currently living under a rock and haven’t heard the news, check out Mr. FishDuck’s write-up). No doubt, Conerly’s …

Lanning Love: “Football is Fun Again!”

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

When you have been managing a couple Oregon football sites for a decade with hundreds of contacts among all the readers, writers, photographers, editors and volunteers that have helped the sites–you pick up some pretty tasty tidbits of information on occasion. A Duck-Buddy of many years called me the other day to tell of his own interview with a current …
