Our True Rival and Why We Hate Them

Henry Swift History 3 Comments

The new term has just begun and this means that there are many new fans for the student section. However, a startling new trend has befallen Oregon. Due to our recent dominance over Washington, some fans have begun to think that maybe Stanford or USC are our true rivals. While we may have had some problems with USC or Stanford …

As Seen While Under the Knife

It was supposed to be a 12-minute procedure — anesthetized, wheeled into the operating room, surgery, and home that afternoon. Blood pressure 128/81. Perfect. Oxygen saturation, 96%. Very good. Heart rate 91. Not unusual pre-surgery. All systems go. IV attached and running smoothly. Kiss the wife goodbye, and I’m off. The cold air and bright lights of an O.R. are …

Happy Birthday, FishDuck.com Style

This week is my wife’s birthday. She turns (#@#%* transmission garbled) years old. I wanted to get her the best birthday gift possible, so I did what any intelligent husband would do. She said, “A trip to Hawaii sounds fun.” I would have to sell my body a jillion times over to finance a trip to Hawaii. I could see …

What I Am Willing to Do to Turn This Thing Around

Remember when teams used to fear us? Well those days are pretty much behind us. There are those who would suggest we would be better off remembering the olden days, when the Civil War was the be-all and end-all after a season of getting mauled by our betters. NO! NEIN! NYET!いいえ!Walang! I’m not willing to go there just yet. So, …

Mike Merrell’s Three-and-Out: Winston, Bruins and Ducks

Mike Merrell FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

There are those Duck fans with the attitude that anything less than a three touchdown win is just unacceptable, and they are heaping criticism on the Duck coaching staff. Some even go so far as to say that the only reason Oregon beat WSU was a favorable non-call on pass interference toward the end of the game. One writer even …

Mike Merrell’s Three-And-Out: Where Have All the Villains Gone?

Mike Merrell FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 9 Comments

Before getting into this week’s Three-and-Out, I have one comment that I haven’t seen anywhere else about the big MSU game: Of Oregon’s 46 points, 38 were scored by underclassmen. With Jeff Lockie looking much improved from a year ago with 11-of-12 passing against South Dakota, don’t worry about 2015. There will be life after Mariota. Now, on to the …

My Wife’s Birthday Got Me to Thinking …

Thursday was my wife’s birthday  (“Happy birthday, honey.  Sorry about, well, you know.”)  It being her special day, I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell all of you what a lucky guy I am. When I met her all those years ago, she didn’t know the difference between Oregon and Oregon State.  Last season, at the end of the Civil …

Is the SEC’s BCS Rep in Trouble?

Nathan Roholt FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

Craig Strobeck It has been labeled as the top conference in all of college football.  That is the reputation the SEC has been adorned with, largely on the back of its member schools having won seven consecutive BCS National Championship Games; something the conference has no problem buying ad time to remind you about: Amazingly, that streak has been accomplished …

Why We Say ‘Neu-Weasel’

Josh White History 0 Comments

Rick Neuheisel may not ever coach a game against the Ducks again. You might recognize his Bruins from any number of recent uninspiring performances such as last Thursday, where they were blasted on ESPN by a newly Stoops-less Arizona team 48-12. It was the first conference win this season for the Wildcats. After the game, Slick Rick seemingly was in …
