Ashley Young FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

Nationally, all minds have focused on Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota and who will fill his giant, humble shoes. My mind is elsewhere, namely, on the Oregon Ducks defense.

Our defense held big, bad Michigan State to 27 points, powerhouse Stanford to 16 points, and flashy Utah to 27 …

Mike Merrell FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 35 Comments

Mike Merrell’s Three-and-Out The 101st Rose Bowl was in the books. Most of the press had not yet made it to the room for the post-game conferences, so I greedily claimed a front-row seat, wanting to be as close as possible to those whom I viewed as the biggest villains in college football: Jimbo Fisher and Jameis Winston.
