Charles Fischer Editorials 74 Comments

As with every subject about Our Beloved Ducks … I would love to hear your feelings and thoughts about the cancellation and the near future in the comments below.

The Pac-12 in 2020: An Indebted Year of Football Promise

Jon Joseph Editorials 25 Comments

DROP YOUR SOCKS AND HOLD ONTO YOUR JOCKS! As all Ducks fans are well aware, the College Basketball Santa ran into a COVID-19 blockade. No soup, or at least only watered down soup, for you! Sabrina was dissed; the Pac-12 was stiffed. It was CBB coal and not oranges, for Pac-12 boys and girls. Now, with the college football season …

Breaking In a New QB: How Has Oregon Done?

Ryan Robertson Editorials 35 Comments

As the 2020 season approaches and the Ducks prepare to hand the reigns to a new quarterback, it is fair to wonder what fans can expect. How have past Oregon QBs fared in their inaugural seasons? For simplicity’s sake, QBs will only be considered if they started at least a third of the season. 2017: Braxton Burmeister Poor Braxton Burmeister. The …

A Failed Fan Experience: the Pac-12 Championship Anticlimax

David Marsh Editorials 32 Comments

The expansion of the Pac-12 conference has not been to the benefit of fans. In my previous article I argued that the conference expansion has led to the loss of some key yearly rivalries, and that all we get in exchange is the promise of a glorious championship game. The championship game is supposed to be a clash of titans, …

Jim Loscutoff: an Oregon Star and NBA Enforcer

Jim Maloney History 24 Comments

Few Oregon fans have heard of Jim Loscutoff and even fewer know much about him, yet in his first season at Oregon he averaged 10.3 points per game and 12.8 rebounds per game. That rebound average is still 4th on the all-time list for the Ducks, holding strong since the 1950-1951 season.  Of course, this was before many of the greybeards …

Fun, Fun, Fun ‘Till Covid Takes the 2020 Season Away

Jon Joseph Editorials 40 Comments

Now is the summer of our discontent, to be made glorious by the return of ball in the fall? Brothers and Sisters, Duck campers, is anyone having fun? Including the young men who play college football in The Conference of Champions? I for one, am simply bummed. Please allow a grumpy, old man to count the ways. COVID-19 — I hold …

A Duck Fan Responds to Pac-12 Player Demands…

Denverduck07 Editorials 76 Comments

Recently, the Pac-12 conference was rocked with the announcement of a representative group of 12 football players — #WeAreUnited. The announcement came in the form of a list of expressed exploitations, harms and grievances, followed by a list of demands addressed to the Pac-12. #WeAreUnited advises in stark terms that their participation in football activities is contingent on a written …

Why Herbert Will Be Better Than Mariota in the NFL

Joshua Whitted Editorials 50 Comments

Marcus Mariota is undoubtedly the greatest quarterback to put on an Oregon Ducks jersey. He took the country by storm in his three collegiate seasons, carving up defenses with a blend of blazing athleticism and pinpoint accuracy. He became Oregon’s first and only Heisman trophy winner in his final season, and he nearly led the Ducks to a long-awaited national …

Pac-12 Football: Amid Chaos, Predictions Must Still be Made

Darren Perkins Editorials 42 Comments

It’s safe to say that 2020 hasn’t produced a typical college football off-season. Compared to the COVID-19 Virus, very little football has been discussed. On top of this, we have a culture war mounting across the nation, which has compelled a group of Pac-12 players to threaten a boycott unless certain demands are met in regards to racial injustice, COVID-19, …

Oregon’s Cali Flock: Keyon Ware-Hudson is READY to ROCK the PAC

Cameron Johansson Recruiting 17 Comments

After the Ducks’ wide receiving corps, Oregon’s defensive front seven is arguably the deepest unit on the roster. Kayvon Thibodeaux, Jordon Scott and Austin Faoliu will most definitely be leading the defensive line into the season, but there are also plenty of players who will be knocking on the door looking for some action in the 2020 season. One of …
