Can Oregon Break Up the Playoff Status Quo?

David Marsh Editorials 39 Comments

College football is getting less competitive. The playoff’s goal was to expand the number of teams that could compete for the national championship every year by widening the field from two to four. Not much of a playoff, and it seems even less so with a cast of four usual suspects: Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, and Oklahoma. These four teams …

Future Pondering: Would YOU Take Mark Helfrich BACK as an Offensive Coordinator?

Charles Fischer Editorials 77 Comments

Is Mr. FishDuck out of his mind? Wasn’t it he who stated that Mark Helfrich deserved be fired two days before he was? Why would anyone want to bring back a proven non-performer? Because he might just be one of the best offensive minds in college football. Let’s clear the air; I am delighted with the hiring of Joe Moorhead …

Don’t Be Fooled: For Nick Saban and Others, the 2020 Season Is All About the Money

Brandon Viall Editorials 104 Comments

Dear Nick Saban, In late August, Rob Parker of Deadspin quoted you uttering something that made me do a double take. I was so shocked I had to read it twice because I couldn’t believe my own eyes. You said, and I quote, “This is about the players. Everybody acts like we want to play for the money. We want to …

It seems as though Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn finally discovered what us Duck fans have already known for years: Justin Herbert is LEGIT! Despite losing his first three starts, Herbert has looked far more polished than anyone expected coming into the season. The Eugene native has thrown for 300 yards in two out of three games and …

Scott Frost Was Absolutely Right About Recruiting to Oregon

David Marsh Editorials 43 Comments

Oregon is hot on the recruiting trail right now. Just last week, Oregon landed 2022 recruit Andre Dollar over Scott Frost and Nebraska. This has, yet again, led people to dig up Frost’s 2016 interview with USA Today, during his first year with UCF, where he notoriously stated: “It’s hard in those places [Oregon] because we’re just not in close …

New Offenses During COVID: What to Expect

Ryan Robertson Editorials 38 Comments

For three years, Oregon had the same offensive coordinator in Marcus Arroyo. With Arroyo leaving for a head coaching gig in 2020, Oregon had to find a new man to run the offense.

DUCKS FOOTBALL: Recovery from a COVID Season?

Brent Pennington Editorials 61 Comments

Whether or not the Ducks season is saved for an early November start, pushed back to spring 2021, or staggers erratically with fits and starts of games, Ducks Football is likely to suffer a blow from COVID-19 impacts that will take some years to recover from.

Should Ducks Great Justin Herbert Get the Start This Sunday?

Jordan Ingram Editorials 20 Comments

If you’re like me, the return of the NFL season this past week was a refreshing change from the doom and gloom of 2020. And if you bleed green and yellow, you probably wished former Oregon Ducks quarterback Justin Herbert had taken a few snaps for the Los Angeles Chargers against Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals.
