Oregon’s Rushing Attack 2021: A Return to Former Glory?

Alex Heining Editorials 31 Comments

The Oregon offense was stagnant all through the COVID-ridden 2020 season, and the ground attack wasn’t doing the team any favors. The Ducks did average 166.7 YPG (yards per game), a mere eight yards under the 2019 season average of 174.9 YPG, but both of these seasons are far and away from the success of 2017 and other similar seasons …

Special Teams: Oregon’s Achilles’ Heel

David Marsh Editorials 23 Comments

The 2020 season was disastrous for Oregon’s special teams. The kicking game started out bad, return coverage was often lacking, and Oregon just didn’t have much of a return game of their own. At the beginning of last season, Camden Lewis had placekicking responsibilities and basically picked up where he left off — missing easy kicks. At the end of …

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials 25 Comments

My friends, I sometimes get guest articles where they look at Oregon football from a distant perspective, and today we have one from Eastern Europe. Normally I would not publish it, as I already have one international entity quite displeased with me at the moment, yet the total package of this particular article got me to thinking. While most of …

CFB Drama: Is a 12 Team Playoff Coming Soon?

David Marsh Editorials 32 Comments

By the looks of it, a 12 Team Playoff is the preferred format for expanding the College Football Playoff. Currently it appears that the top twelve teams ranked by the playoff committee would make it into the playoff. This sounds good in theory but also raises further questions. What if the Champion of a Power-Five Conference isn’t ranked in the …

Having successfully defended their Pac 12 title for the 13th consecutive season, the Duck men headed to the West Regional at Texas A&M, a meet which established who will compete at the NCAA Championships starting today.

Oregon Fans: What’s Your FAVORITE Memory of the Decade?

The football gods have been kind to Oregon football in recent years. Since 2010, the Ducks have been one of the most successful teams in college football, making a couple of National Championship Games, winning multiple BCS/NY6 bowl games, and perhaps most importantly, delivering some of the most memorable moments in program history. There are the obvious plays and games …
