Doug Brenner Looks to Seize a Great Opportunity

Omar Garibay FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

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 …

New Faces For The Quack Attack

Max Thornberry FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

It is always a sad week when we don’t have a Duck football game to look forward to in order to keep us going through the week. This Saturday the Ducks will have their second bye week of the season and they will not be complaining about the extra time to prepare for Colorado on November 22. Yes, that’s right, …

Recruiting Update: A Rock in the Ocean

Mark Flores FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 6 Comments

Football Recruiting Writer’s Note Oregon’s 51-27 drubbing over Utah came with a steep price. One of my all-time favorite Ducks, center Hroniss Grasu, didn’t pop right up after one of his patented pocket blocks. Inching closer to the edge of my favorite recliner at the fire station, I found myself saying… “Why him?!” Now, five days removed from “dropscore,” We, The …

Weapon in the Trenches: The Center in Chip Kelly’s Offense

Joe Kearns Analysis 0 Comments

When people talk about Chip Kelly’s offense, one of the most common buzz words they use is mobility. Although mobility helps running back LeSean McCoy burst through the line of scrimmage or receiver Jeremy Maclin get wide open, it is arguably more important for the offensive linemen who keep defenses out of the backfield. Kelly has been fortunate to have …

Ducks’ Bye-Week Comes At Just the Right Time

Omar Garibay FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

The Ducks’ victory against a physical Utah team this past Saturday was wild, and while Oregon was able to take advantage of Kaelin Clay’s careless turnover, which changed the complexion of the game; the Ducks paid the price by coming out of Salt Lake City scathed. Oregon has found a way to maintain their level of dominance this season, despite some …

For Mark Helfrich, This One Isn’t as Sweet

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 3 Comments

Every Sunday I get a chance to talk to Mark Helfrich at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex in an interview for FishDuck.com. Normally the talk is pretty good; he mentions a few of the pros and cons from the game, and all the media get to go home happy. This time though, the air in the room felt different. Helfrich, normally a pretty …

Sunday Reaction: Great Win Comes at a Steep Price

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

The final score from last night does not reflect how good that Utah team truly is. The Utes dominated the Ducks in that opening quarter. Sadly, as it so often did in last night’s game, the injury bug struck and the Utes watched the game slowly slip out of their hands. Travis Wilson, Utah’s normal starting QB, was initially benched in favor …

Ducks Come Out Victorious On a Wild Night

Omar Garibay FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

The final score says the Ducks came out victorious against Utah last night, 51-27, but the night was full of drama, physicality, smiles and frowns, and the Ducks’ poised quarterback stood tall, leading his team to victory. Utah’s physical front-seven overpowered Oregon’s offensive line in the first quarter, and for a brief moment, it looked like the Utes would be …

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 …

Randy Morse FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

Going into tonight’s game against the 17th-ranked Utah Utes, Coach Mark Helfrich and his team knew they were in for a battle. Utah didn’t disappoint, battling toe to toe with the No. 4 Ducks into the early stages of the fourth quarter, when Oregon, as it does so often, stepped on the gas pedal and left the home team in …

Hroniss Grasu Discusses Potential Challenges Utah Presents

Tyler Robinson FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

Utah may be the largest hurdle that remains between Oregon and its playoff dreams. The Utes are 6-2 and have lost their last two games by a combined four points. The atmosphere in Salt Lake City this Saturday night could be the most hostile environment the Ducks will face this season. While reporting for FishDuck.com at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex today, I had …

Grasu Talks Football, Basketball and Twitter

Max Thornberry FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

Caleb Couturie of FishDuck.com spoke with Hroniss Grasu today at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex after practice. The Ducks’ offensive line has been in the news all season, particularly when it was banged up and allowed 12 sacks over two games. Now it is back and ready to roll with redshirt senior Grasu leading the charge. With stars such as Marcus Mariota and Royce Freeman …
