David Miller Editorials 5 Comments

Over the past 50 years or so there have been many great teams in the Pac-8/10/12, but only a few teams have risen to the top to dominate the conference over an extended time period.

Oregon Pitchers Survived the First Half, Look to Dominate Second Half of Conference Play

Max Thornberry Editorials 0 Comments

Oregon’s pitching has not been great. The highly touted rotation has pitched well, but has failed to reach the levels we expected back in February. The bullpen is questionable, as well. As mentioned last week, the back-end is set, but as evidenced by the madness of the Oregon State game Monday night, the long-relievers/spot starters are anything but a sure …

Fare Thee Well

Kim Hastings Best of FishDuck.com Humor 5 Comments

Well, it looks like FishDuck.com is going away, at least in its current high content, fast moving iteration.

To the schools at whose expense I have plowed the most fertile ground. Then to the FishDuck folks themselves. …

Jimmy Friedricks FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 2 Comments

In major Division 1 college football, it’s rare to see an athlete play both offense and defense. The reasons are quite simple: with a roster of more than 100 spots available on college football teams, players are able to become more specialized as depth increases. This allows players to get more in-depth training at a certain position, and helps prevent overuse, …

The 2014-2015 college basketball season has been full of excitement, upsets and triumphs — and the Ducks have been one of the most interesting teams in the Pac-12, but it’s hard to really gauge who they are and how they will perform on any given night. Are they young? Yes. Are they inexperienced? Of course. Will they make you scratch …

Ducks’ Biggest Basketball Battle is on the Road

McKalie Bellew FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

Last night the Oregon Ducks walked away with a W after beating USC 80-75. Now the Ducks are preparing to face UCLA this Saturday in California. This season hasn’t been bad for Oregon; their offense is full of ridiculous amounts of talent and although their defense needs some improvement, they are a well-rounded team. There are only six games left …

The Mighty Ducks Are Flying High

Omar Garibay FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

Don’t look now, but the Oregon Ducks men’s basketball team is 17-7 (7-4 Pac-12) and currently in third place in the Pac-12 standings. Wait, what? Did you just read that correctly? Yes. As a matter of fact you did. Coming into the season, many critics believed that the Ducks’ inexperience would hinder their chances of playing competitive basketball. But head …
