The Future of College Football Arrived in Week 3

Nathan Roholt Editorials 1 Comment

Predicting a game is hard … ask any athletic director in college football, who are often required to anticipate the quality of their opponents as far as a decade ahead. Contrast that challenge with the fact that TV networks rarely make scheduling decisions sooner than 12 days before broadcast. The variables are myriad. From weather to attendance, to finance … …

NCAA Track and Field Championship Predictions

Isaac Gibson FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

With the NCAA Track and Field Championships right around the corner, Oregon made a huge statement and cemented its status as favorites on both the men’s and women’s side. The Ducks men and women swept the PAC-12 Championships last weekend, despite missing some of their most important contributors. In the spirit of championship season, I would like to make a few predictions, while stressing …

The Spread Offense: The Oregon, Urban Meyer Connection

Noah Smith Analysis 2 Comments

On January 12th, do not be surprised if you feel like you’re seeing double. Urban Meyer’s love of the spread option offense has been widely documented ever since his days at Bowling Green and then at Florida. Some people even claim that Meyer invented the read option play that we love to watch our Ducks run (Rich Rodriguez would dispute that claim). Regardless of who invented it, Meyer …

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

  As this off season drags on, we really have only the Conference Media days to keep us busy along with the NCAA going to court against everyone. The NCAA will be on trial for five different cases in the upcoming months. All cases will change the college football world dramatically, if won. With all this going on, the SEC …

College Football Nation: Hot Seats and FSU’s Drastic Unie Change

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

This is shaping up to be the summer of the hurry up offense and the attack it has come under.  I am okay with coaches arguing over the possible rule change all summer and taking jabs at each other.  Imagine how much bigger the Iron Bowl will be if Alabama’s Nick Saban and Auburn’s Gus Malzahn have all summer to speak …

College Football Nation: The upsets have arrived and Mack Brown survives another week

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 3 Comments

  I was starting to get worried that too many teams would finish the season undefeated, until today.  As the season goes on we are finally getting to see the upsets.  Upsets are what we live for in college football, as long as our team isn’t on the wrong end of the stick.  Watching the impossible become possible is what …

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 2 Comments

  Not too many “BIG” games happening this week and the media was sure to let us know about it.  Heck, ESPN’s Game Day went to Fargo, North Dakota, because of the lack of “BIG” games to go to.  It was nice seeing them there just to give the “little” guys a shout out.  We have had some great FCS …

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

    Oh my goodness, two weeks until kick off and then we can finally quit all of this quiet time and bring the noise. Then we can start figuring out if the SEC will be re-re-re-re-re-re-re-repeat as National Champs or if someone else will steal the spotlight. I know for one thing, Texas A&M needs this season to get …

Three Rivalries That Need to Start

Brandon Gruber FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

Feature Photo by Kevin Cline   Rivalries are the best part of sports.  The Passion.  The Intensity.  The Hatred. We all love to hate the Huskies and poke fun at the Beavers (and their stupid new logo), but don’t we all watch a game and say, “I want to play that team?”  What if we could actually get teams to Autzen …

At Papé field yesteday our Oregon Ducks encountered their biggest challenge of the season thus far against the number 2 and undefeated University of Florida.  There were over three hundred people in attendance, eager to watch the competition between the two collegiate teams.  From the Gators blue rain jackets, their bright orange cleats and sticks, and Papé fields vivid yellow and green the …
