Ducks, Herbert Dump Grizzlies

Coach Ken Woody Coach Woody's Analysis 7 Comments

Oregon’s Justin Herbert continued to pad his passing resume with an impressive 30-of-42 attempts for 316 yards and five touchdowns and the Ducks did as expected, dominating Montana 35-3. Herbert’s first scoring toss was an NCAA record 31st straight game with a touchdown pass, although his longest completion was only 21 yards. The Duck offensive line afforded Herbert solid pass …

Oregon’s Relentless Defense is Dominating

Ryan Robertson Editorials 114 Comments

It has been eight quarters and nine seconds since the Oregon Ducks gave up a touchdown. In the last two games, Oregon has allowed a total of nine points. Through three total games, Oregon is allowing only 272.3 yards per game. The Oregon defense has absolutely dominated the early season. Here are some reasons why. The Ferocious Front Seven Through …

Oregon’s First Three Games: Who are YOUR Favorite Freshmen?

Cameron Johansson Editorials 57 Comments

The Ducks have officially wrapped up their non-conference schedule with a 2-1 record. The first three weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster, with a disappointing loss to Auburn week one and a strong rebound in the following weeks in front of the Autzen faithful. With conference play set to begin next week at Stanford, there is a …

Oregon Gameday: Discuss Montana Matchup and the “Auburn Effect”

Joshua Whitted Editorials 90 Comments

Oregon’s week 3 matchup with Montana offers little suspense. Montana is a talented FCS team that ranks 20th in the STATS FCS Poll. But let’s be honest; if the Ducks don’t win by more than 40 points, there will be outrage on message boards across the Northwest. Since today’s game gives the coaching staff an opportunity to focus on the …

Oregon Football Recruiting: Avalos Brings The Beef!

Cameron Johansson Recruiting 30 Comments

Strange as it may seem, last weekend’s 77-6 victory over Nevada wasn’t the biggest win of the weekend for the Oregon football program. Autzen not only hosted Jordan Bell, Keanon Lowe and Sabrina Ionescu but also highly touted, multi-skilled inside linebacker recruits Noah Sewell and Keith Brown. The weekend was a family affair for Sewell, with both his brothers in …

Arroyo Adds EXPLOSIVE Wrinkle to Oregon’s RPO Package

Joshua Whitted Analysis 41 Comments

To say that Oregon fans were underwhelmed with offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo’s play calling in the Ducks’ week 1 loss to Auburn would be an understatement. No one shouldered more of the blame for Oregon’s abysmal second half showing — in which the Ducks failed to put up a single point after their first possession — than Arroyo. But for …

Coach Ken Woody Analysis: Ducks Endanger Wolf Pack

Coach Ken Woody Coach Woody's Analysis 25 Comments

Coach Mario Cristobal must have heaved a sigh of relief at halftime with the Ducks ahead of Nevada 35-6. Now, all his team needed to do was “finish” the job in the second half, which they did in resounding fashion, scoring 42 points and shutting out a Wolf Pack team that scored 34 the week before against a Big Ten …

The Avalos Effect: Oregon’s Defense Looks Better Than Ever

Adam Holland Editorials 42 Comments

When new defensive coordinator Andy Avalos arrived at Oregon from Boise State, he had big shoes to fill. Perhaps never before in the program’s history had a defensive coordinator made as immediate and noticeable impact as Jim Leavitt when he arrived alongside Willie Taggart in 2017. Oregon improved from 126th in the nation in total defense in 2016 to 46th …

Nevada: “What the DUCK Just Happened?”

Charles Fischer Editorials 128 Comments

We promised that our Sunday articles would have all kinds of drama, including the opposing players’ and coaches’ opinions of the Ducks after each game. But this report is a bit short on drama, because while I hunkered down for a long press conference with the Wolfpack, Head Coach Jay Norvell spoke for just six minutes. He didn’t tell us …

Discuss Before, During and After: Will the Ducks Bounce Back Against the Nevada Wolfpack?

Charles Fischer Editorials 80 Comments

The Featured Photo above is a dandy, as it is from the 2011 game when Nevada came to town. This was a swing pass from Darron Thomas to De’Anthony Thomas that went for one of five touchdown passes that day, and it was a sweet memory in so many ways. The FishDuck.com era had just begun, and when the video …
