Remaining Ducks with the Most NFL Potential

Steven Jackson FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

The University of Oregon is not often thought of as a hot bed for NFL talent. Mainly because of the lack of “can’t miss” prospects and the issues some of the “draft experts” have with the no huddle system we use to win more football games than any other school since 2010. But that’s an argument for another time. The …

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 …

Next Heisman Up? A Unique Opportunity for Ducks

Jordan Ingram FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 3 Comments

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 …

Do We Have Another Year With Super Mariota?

Max Thornberry FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

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

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

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 …

Fans, we are six days away from the biggest game of our season and our Ducks are the talk of the town… everywhere. We will face the Ohio State Buckeyes, who defeated Alabama in the Sugar Bowl to advance to the title game. I watched the Ohio State game and give them props as they played a good game. I have heard …

Oregon WR Darren Carrington II Shines in Rose Bowl

Jordan Ingram FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

It was the opening kickoff of the Rose Bowl. Redshirt freshman track star and Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota‘s go-to receiver Devon Allen returned the kickoff. After a tackle, Allen instantly grabbed his knee and limped off the field. He never returned to the game. It was a sad moment for the USATF champion track star, his teammates, and Duck fans. Enter redshirt freshman …

7 Things Ohio State Should Know About Our Ducks Offense

McKalie Bellew FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

Now that we’ve all celebrated, high-fived and clinked glasses from our Rose Bowl victory, it’s time to get back to work. Our Ducks have one more game to play this season and it’s the biggest of all… the National Championship game. Come January 12 our Ducks will be in Texas to face Ohio State. If I were Ohio State, I …

Receiver Depth Makes Oregon Dangerous

Max Thornberry FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

Royce Freeman and Marcus Mariota have been the talk of the sports world leading up to the first college football semi-playoff game. The Ducks’ offense thrives on being able to run the ball in order to control the pace of the game as well as keep pressure off of Mariota. However it is the receivers that are going to do …

Two Young, Hungry Teams To Battle New Years Day

Max Thornberry FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

A fire was sparked on the Scout.com message boards this week over Jason Staples’ Know Your Foe piece breaking down the strengths and weaknesses of FSU, Oregon’s last hurdle to clear before the College Football National Championship Game. While Florida State’s strengths are highlighted, the number three seed has plenty to fear with their 29-game-winning streak on the line against the …

The Freshman Factor

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

I don’t even try to keep it a secret that I’m absolutely enamored with this freshman class. Royce Freeman, Darren Carrington, Devon Allen, Charles Nelson, Doug Brenner and Aidan Schneider have all made their own significant impacts on the Ducks’ 2014 season. In fact,one could make the argument that without these guys the Ducks wouldn’t have a shot at playing Florida …

Losing Sweat Hurts, But Ducks Will Overcome

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 2 Comments

Just like those associated with Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Georgia and others, I too was swept up in the Josh Sweat madness. The five-star prospect chose Florida State, a team both close to home and with a recent history of winning. The decision made sense, but at the same time it stung a little. Why didn’t he want to be a …
