Oregon’s incredible depth has been one of the biggest storylines of the summer. The unbelievably deep position of wide receiver caused Alex Ofodile to redshirt when many assumed he would be make an impact straight away after enrolling back in January. The loss of RB Thomas Tyner for the entire 2015/2016 puts a small wrench in this offense, but it won’t be its undoing. Royce …

Johnny Mundt had an explosive freshman year and was turning heads nationally. However, when he was a sophomore during the 2014 season, Mundt seemed to have fallen off of the map. Sure, everyone can understand that Mundt was the second string behind the Ducks’ amazing tight end Pharaoh Brown, but why didn’t he have the same amount of playing time …

As soon as the clock hit zero, the uncertainty kicked in. While Ohio State was celebrating its 8th national championship, the Oregon Ducks walked off the AT&T Stadium field with their heads down. The Ducks soared all season long, overcame multiple injuries, and their quarterback carried them like no other Oregon quarterback had ever done before. But in the end, …

Baylis and Mundt Looking to Fly High in Spring Compeition

Noah Smith FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

While much has been made of Oregon‘s loaded stable of running backs and solid corps of receivers heading into next season, the TE position has been largely ignored . Unlike other positions on offense, Oregon doesn’t have big name talent at TE outside of the injured Pharoah Brown, who despite being ahead of schedule in his recovery, is not likely to play …

Finally, it’s game day, ladies and gentleman — and a special one, as it’s senior day and the last home game of the season (and most likely Marcus Mariota’s last home game as well, as he’s expected to enter the 2014 NFL Draft). Here are three aspects to be cognizant of before watching Saturday’s game: 1. Pharaoh Brown’s Replacement There has …

Omar Garibay FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

The Ducks’ “Win The Day” slogan embodies just about everything that the Oregon football team stands for. You win by any means necessary, and you focus solely on the task at hand. Oregon has been winning a lot this season, but it hasn’t been easy. Despite battling through injuries, and even losing a few key players for an extended amount …

In a interview for FishDuck.com on Thursday, I spoke with Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex. After suffering a gruesome knee injury in the fourth quarter against Utah last Saturday, Pharaoh Brown was taken to the University of Utah hospital and had surgery a few days later. Helfrich said that Brown is no longer in the hospital and is officially in Cleveland with his mother. …

Johnny Mundt: Opportunist Tight End

Michael Bigham FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

On September 14, 2013, Oregon played Tennessee in Autzen Stadium and Duck fans were worried. A new kid, Johnny Mundt started at tight end. Colt Lyerla, the normal starter, was missing because of undisclosed “circumstances.” There was no need for the fans to worry, though, as Mundt responded to the opportunity with a breakout game: five receptions for 121 yards and …

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, …

Clear eyes. Full Hearts. The Ducks Play with Motivation.

Ashley Young FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Clear eyes and full hearts. This is something my Ultimate Frisbee coach used to tell our team when something tragic had happened. No one could have anticipated the number of injuries during last Saturday’s game vs. Utah. The Ducks suffered injuries to three key players including center Hroniss Grasu, safety Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, and tight end Pharaoh Brown. The Utes also had their …

I am not a “professional,” per se, as I refuse to write the usual “blah-blah” that you’ll see from other media outlets, but then that is why this site began. I wanted more information, and to learn — and our readers have agreed. This Oregon Football Media day was like going down memory lane … in how similar it was to my …
