Hroniss Grasu Discusses Potential Challenges Utah Presents

Tyler Robinson FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Utah may be the largest hurdle that remains between Oregon and its playoff dreams. The Utes are 6-2 and have lost their last two games by a combined four points. The atmosphere in Salt Lake City this Saturday night could be the most hostile environment the Ducks will face this season. While reporting for FishDuck.com at the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex today, I had …

Catching Up with the One and Only SuperMariota

Austin Willhoft FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Marcus Mariota is clearly the best of the best in terms of quarterbacks throughout the College Football League. Last Saturday when the Ducks took on Stanford, Mariota looked and played fantastic. Going into the game, Oregon, especially Mariota, knew that Stanford had a stupendous defense that always seemed to stop the Ducks’ up-tempo offense in the past. Obviously, that wasn’t …

The Ducks Exorcise the Stanford ‘Demon’

Austin Willhoft FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

I’ll be honest, Saturday night was one of the best nights I ever had. The Ducks finally took down the Cardinal after experiencing two disappointing performances in the past two season games. Oregon defeated Stanford in a 45-16 blowout victory that ultimately helps the Ducks’ hopes of getting into the playoffs. Marcus Mariota finally beat Stanford and threw for more than 250 …

Rooting Interests During Oregon’s Bye Week

Kim Hastings FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

It’s Breather Week for the Oregon Ducks, who are fresh off another easy win over Washington State. A never-in-doubt, always-in-the-bag, easy-peasy lemon-squeezy win over the Cougars — who were never in it. But, since we at  FishDuck.com/imaduckfanbornandaduckfanbredandillitalicizeduntilimdead aren’t just Duck fans, but college football fans as well, we wanted to preview some of the conference games on the slate this week. …

Division Power Rankings: Pac-12 South

Pat Pannu FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that the Pac-12 is one of the best conferences in the country. It has changed vastly since its conception, but one thing has always stayed the same: winning. After the addition of Utah and Colorado three years ago (how time flies), the Pac-12 was split into two divisions: North and South. Though the North division …

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 …

Sam Arney FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Steve Francis With the 2013 football season officially behind us, I thought that I would take this time to reflect back over the season at some of the great games.  These games could be great as a whole, or it could be one performance that made the game great.  The following are my top 5 games of the year: 5. …

Visitors’ Locker Room: Discouraged Utes Lose Fourth Straight, Fall 44-21 to No. 6 Oregon

Joey Holland FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Craig Strobeck The Utah Utes have been unpredictable so far this season.  Earlier in the year, they lost to UCLA by only seven points, and shocked the Pac-12 when they beat then-No. 5 Stanford.  However, Utah has now lost four straight after falling 44-21 to a hungry Oregon Ducks team, moving to 4-6 on the season. The Utes were frustrated after …

There Oughta be a Law . . . and in Utah There is One

Kim Hastings FishWrap, FishWrap Archive Leave a Comment

Good day friends.  On this, the week after the world ended, I would like to report that I, for one, handled losing to Stanford and living surrounded by Husky fans, very well.  My attorney believes we may even be able to plea down to simple assault. But carry on we must.  There’s another game this week, which means another chance …
