It’s no secret to anyone involved with the Oregon Ducks football program that this year the team saw a particularly large amount of turnover. Seniors Erick Dargan, Derrick Malone, Tony Washington, Troy Hill, Ifo-Ekpre-Olomu, Hroniss Grasu, Keanon Lowe, Hamani Stevens, and Jake Fisher all played integral roles in the Ducks run in the 2014 season. But of course the real …

Nik Brownlee FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

I’ve been an Oregon fan for as long as I can remember. I’m 23 years old, so the Joey Harrington era was when I started becoming a real sports fan as a kid. It seems the Ducks have always had good running backs over the years with players such as Maurice Morris, Jonathan Stewart, and LaMichael James. But even with a focus on the running …

With so much hype surrounding the quarterback battle that is set to take place with the beginning of spring practices, it is easy to overlook the tools that will make or break whoever comes out of that battle on top. Namely the wide receivers. The Ducks are known for their lighting fast offensive attack and their wide receivers are major …

The Oregon football season ended with as many questions as achievements, leaving many speculating about how the Ducks’ football program will respond to the magic and disappointment of 2014. As recruiting enters its final stretch, the quarterback discussion has started to heat up in Eugene. It’s true, the 2015 Oregon football program has the unenviable task of replacing its Heisman Trophy winning quarterback, Marcus Mariota. Unfortunately, the …

Darren Carrington was ineligible for the national title game because he failed an NCAA drug test; he tested positive for marijuana. However, according to Carrington’s father, Darren Carrington Sr., his son wasn’t smoking at all, but rather, the failed test was the result of secondhand smoke.

Even if the Ducks didn’t bring a national title back to Eugene we can still look back at their bowl season and appreciate their accomplishments. Which is exactly what Ted Miller of ESPN.com did in compiling the Pac-12 all-bowl team.

Last night’s loss to the Buckeyes was a painful one that, as much as we would all love to forget, will not be erased from our minds any time soon. Despite golden opportunities handed to Marcus Mariota by the defense forcing four turnovers, they couldn’t capitalize against a strong Ohio State defense. So, is this the end of the Mariota …

Tuesday Reaction: The Best Team Won

First off, congratulations to Ohio State. As badly as I wanted my boys in white and grey (should’ve been green and yellow) to come out and smother the Bucks, I can admit when we’ve been beaten. The verdict on whether it was actually the Buckeyes who beat us or us who beat us is still out. Either way, keep those heads …

As I sat in a restaurant in New Orleans last night, I’m pretty sure I was the only one beginning to seethe from watching ESPN as the the BREAKING NEWS crawl went across the screen. Then I started getting a bit concerned, as I read that Darren Carrington was not going to be able to play in the Championship Game …

It’s happening again. Oregon fans are getting absolutely sick of hearing roster news midweek this season, especially this week, but here it comes. Again. According to CSNNW’s Aaron Fentress, another Duck has taken a dive, and this one has no one to blame but himself.
