What Is The Matrix For Judging Lanning?

DazeNconfused Editorials

There has been much discussion on how to judge Dan Lanning’s first year as a head coach. Those discussions have shown a wide range of conclusions drawn, as some are delighted with Lanning’s first year leading the Ducks. I was more critical by raising alarm with his in-game decision making, and how the defense grossly underperformed relative to its talent …

Can Oregon Duplicate the Georgia Model?

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

Watching Georgia pile up points with a balanced offense, and have a defense emerge that only gave up 13 points per game (prior to Ohio State) in their clubbing of TCU…got me to thinking about the Georgia model. Could Oregon build what the Bulldogs have, only on the west coast? I took a break from my research of casinos in India …

Oregon Ducks Football: My Season Takeaways

Alex Heining Editorials

Well, quack. Looks like Oregon Ducks football is officially in off-season mode. This was quite a season to watch. Seeing this team rise and fall and rise again? I loved the rollercoaster, but honestly, I’m a bit glad for the break. Despite our season not ending how we wanted it to in the PAC-12 championship and beyond, there’s a lot …

Oregon Ducks Football: Biggest Winners of the Holiday Bowl

Ducks’ Thrilling Holiday Bowl Win the Perfect Christmas Gift

Jordan Ingram Editorials

This year’s Holiday Bowl between the No. 15 Oregon Ducks and North Carolina Tar Heels was a game for history books. Trailing 27-21, the Ducks’ offense rallied down the field in the game’s final minutes with Chargers’ star quarterback Justin Herbert watching from the sideline. On fourth down with 19 seconds remaining, Bo Nix threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to …

What to Expect from a Will Stein Lead Ducks Offense

Coach Eric Boles Analysis

Many are wondering just what the Oregon Ducks offense may look like under new offensive coordinator, Will Stein. Honestly, probably not all that different than it did under Coach Kenny Dillingham. I believe that Coach Dan Lanning will take a similar approach to Oregon’s offensive system that Coach Urban Meyer took to his. No matter who was coming into the …

Five Non-Starters to Watch In Today’s Holiday Bowl

David Marsh Editorials

I have already aired my grievances about December being too busy and how the bowl games are suffering as a result. However, today Oregon plays in the Holiday Bowl against North Carolina and we will get the opportunity to see some backups take the field and hopefully make an impact. Here are five players to watch in today’s game who …

December Is Too Busy and Bowl Season Suffers

David Marsh Editorials

College Football has changed so much in the past decade. In the early 2010s, the value of bowl games was clear for teams and players alike. Making a bowl game, even a bad bowl game, was the reward for a decent, or even good, season. Then starting in 2014, the value of bowl games started to decline with the College …

Oregon Ducks Football: Signing Day Superlatives

Alex Heining Editorials

Signing day was a HUGE success for Dan Lanning and Oregon Ducks football. As our own Charles Fischer chatted about just yesterday, this easily could be one of the best first-year head coach’s recruiting classes ever with how many big swings Lanning took in the past few weeks. Well, those swings have certainly paid off. The gut punch of Dante Moore flipping this …
