Max Thornberry FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

The Ducks finished their most recent road trip to Arizona by sliding past Arizona State 68-67 in overtime to stay above .500 in the Pac-12. This week Oregon will welcome Washington and Washington State into Matthew Knight Arena where the Ducks should build some momentum heading into the home stretch of the season. Pac-12 analyst Mike Montgomery told Tyson Alger …

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. …

Catching up with Ducks Assistant Coach Tom Osborne

It can be both a good and bad thing when a team has a bye week. For the Ducks, it’s more of a good thing as they were pretty banged up going into the Utah game last Saturday. Against the Utes, it seemed as if the “injury bug” continued biting Oregon’s key players such as center Hroniss Grasu, cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu and tight end …

A Closer Examination of the Ducks’ Jump over Florida State

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

As Duck fans we are biased. We’re also fanatical, Hawaiian-crazy, freshmen-frenzied football fans who are in the midst of watching one of the many great Duck teams and Duck players of all time. Watching Marcus Mariota slash and gash defenses for touchdown after touchdown is not something we should get used to since players as good as he is only come around …

“SuperMariota” favorite for the Heisman Trophy

Austin Willhoft FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

After a fantastic week 11 in the 2014 College Football season, the Heisman Trophy competition has never been more intense. Teams such as Mississippi State, Alabama, Florida State, and Oregon try to remain or rise up in the College Football Playoff Top 25 rankings and the country’s most outstanding players are attempting to push up their stock in order to …

Three Takeaways from the Oregon vs. Utah Game

Austin Willhoft FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

What a dogfight, what a battle, what a game that was for the Ducks. Last night, Oregon flocked out of Rice-Eccles Stadium with 51-27 victory over the tough Utah Utes. It wasn’t easy for Oregon to win this game as Utah exemplifies a team with immense heart and wouldn’t go down without a solid fight. Offensively, the Ducks were unstoppable …

Wooooo, it’s game day!! Who’s excited?! Who’s pumped?! Who’s on my level?! That’s right guys, it’s game day and if you’re not on my level, get on my level! It’s supposedly our last big game game of the season. If our Ducks can power through and get that W tonight, our spot in the National Championship Play-offs will more than …

The Curse of the Stanford Goat

Alex Towne FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

I am not sure what kind of voodoo magic played out last weekend; all I know is that I’m exceedingly grateful for it. Our greatest fears were conquered as the mighty Ducks defeated a better than advertised 5-3 Stanford team. The Ducks put on a spectacular performance in a 45- 16 rout over the dreaded Cardinal. But Voodoo you ask? Precisely. I won’t …

Can Oregon’s Dynamic Offense Continue to Flourish?

Omar Garibay FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Offense is fun, offense is exciting. We want to see the big plays. We want to see Royce Freeman bulldoze his way to the end zone. We want to see Marcus Mariota drop back and complete a 50 yard pass, and we want to see the Ducks light up the score board. There is one problem, however. Can you rely solely on offense if …

Arik Armstead Converses About Upcoming Utah Game

McKalie Bellew FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Caleb Couturie interviewed Arik Armstead at the Hatfield-Downlin Complex yesterday  morning at the post-practice press conference for FishDuck.com. Well our Ducks beat Stanford and that feels good and all that but it’s time to focus on what is ahead and our boys are definitely focused on their next game. It’s been a series of back-to-back games these past few weeks …

Erick Dargan Looks to Keep Momentum Going Against Utah

Omar Garibay FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Ashley Young of FishDuck.com interviewed Oregon defensive back Erick Dargan during Tuesday’s press conference at the University of Oregon’s Hatfield-Dowlin Complex. The Ducks finally prospered against their Pac-12 rival this past Saturday. For the last two years Stanford was the itch that Oregon couldn’t reach; Stanford was the fly that Oregon couldn’t kill. But after two years of defeat and disappointment, the Ducks came …

Mark Helfrich Knows the Ducks Aren’t Out of the Woods, Yet

Caleb Couturie FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

At a quick glance, the Stanford game was great. The Ducks won by nearly 30 points, Ty Montgomery didn’t score, and Thomas Tyner scored two TDs in his return. Yes, that’s all fine and dandy, but the Ducks still have a few things to fine tune before they start thinking about the playoffs. Tonight I got a chance to sit …
