Pretend you are a kid on Christmas. All you can think about is getting that toy you have been begging for since the beginning of the year.

With the Colorado game looming closer, emotions are rising as this Saturday will be the last game for the Ducks’ seniors.

When the Ducks played the Utes two weeks ago, the injury bug unfortunately struck the team, leaving some important holes for the Ducks to fill this week. …

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 …

College Football Nation: Hot Seats and FSU’s Drastic Unie Change

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

This is shaping up to be the summer of the hurry up offense and the attack it has come under.  I am okay with coaches arguing over the possible rule change all summer and taking jabs at each other.  Imagine how much bigger the Iron Bowl will be if Alabama’s Nick Saban and Auburn’s Gus Malzahn have all summer to speak …

Kim Hastings FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

Far be it from us to drop names but Joe Lunardi (of bracketology fame) and Charles Fischer (of analysis video and GQ fame) are actually one and the same.  Too modest to brag but too accomplished for just one area of expertise, Joe/Charles (or as we call him, Loon Fish) predict the NCAA Tournament bracket with astounding accuracy each and …

College Football Nation: Big 12 crumbling and Les Miles likes them young

Jeff Hostetler FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 3 Comments

The news of Michael Sam being gay has come and gone, signing day has passed, and now we can just live off the gossip and “trash” talk amongst players and coaches until August.  With no games going on there is little action to report on, unless you have Steve Spurrier as your coach.  He keeps things interesting by speaking what’s …

Nathan Roholt FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 2 Comments

  Knowing the right time to leave is a sign of a professional, and at the same time is never an easy task.  No one wants to walk away when they are up, hoping to sustain those highs as long as possible.  Conversely, no one wants to walk away when they are down, always assuming that their fortunes will reverse …
