Ready to Rethink Recruiting for Lanning’s 2022 Class?

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Recruiting

Oregon Head Coach Dan Lanning has been impressing everyone with the portal transfers brought in, and the recruiting of freshmen for 2023. At one time the recruiting class for 2022 was a dumpster fire from all the defections after Coach Mario Cristobal left, and the current coaching staff was thrown into a near-impossible situation. I was having some fun going …

Agree? Lack of Playoff Expansion Helps SEC, Hurts College Football

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

The more time that passes and this subject comes up, the more I get frosted thinking about it. I was having fun checking the point spread for an upcoming NBA game, but was referred by Nevada Dawg to an article that torqued me off again thinking about the incompetence of those representing our league.

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Editorials

For many of us fans of the original Oregon Spread Offense under Coaches Mike Bellotti, Chip Kelly and Mark Helfrich, the excitement is palpable about the scoring potential of the 2022 Oregon offense. New Head Coach Dan Lanning and Offensive Coordinator Kenny Dillingham have made many bold proclamations about their goals, intent and process for the upcoming season. I was …

Oregon Ducks, Pac-12 Flop in the Draft

Darren Perkins Editorials

While it is always a great sense of pride when an Oregon Duck is selected in the first round of the NFL Draft, especially in the Top 10 (Kayvon Thibodeaux was picked 5th overall by the New York Giants), it is of even greater frustration that no other Ducks were selected.

Former Oregon Lineman’s Injury a Failure of Leadership

Jordan Ingram Editorials

It’s hard to see former Oregon Ducks football players and coaches seated in a courtroom. There is a stark difference between the electric greens and yellows of Autzen Stadium roaring with glee at full capacity and the hushed, drab, beige-colored rooms of the Lane County Courthouse.
