News
 Today marks the second-ranked Oregon Ducks first trip to the eastern time zone since the '70s. It also marks the first time Oregon has faced the oldest public school in the country, the University of Virginia. Suffice it to say, there isn't much history to discuss here.

News
After months of obsessing over recruiting rankings, crucial missed plays and the saga of Johnny Football, the 2013-14 college football season is finally upon us. The season officially kicks off with the battle of the Carolinas set to the tune of that old South Carolinian ditty, “Sandstorm,” on ESPN at 3pm this afternoon.

News
The Oregon Ducks basketball team is off to its best start in years. But even with the top ranking in the Pac-12 and seven straight wins to start the conference season, the Ducks' sterling new $200 million arena isn’t drawing the crowds quite like it expected. According to an article in the university’s Oregon Daily Emerald, Matthew Knight Arena is well below the expected revenue projections ...   More

Almost Live: Oregon vs Oregon State

Ducks aim to lick, pound, [insert sexual verb] Beavers in the Civil War

beaverjuice

News
The attitude throughout the Oregon community has been muted over the past week. The braggadocio that once defined the fanbase has given way stunned, mildly appalled melancholy. But as fun as it was wallowing in self-pity after the Cardinal’s upset last Saturday, the time has come to move on. We’ve a war to prepare for.  There are plenty easterners, Southrons, and history books that will try ...   More

Almost Live: Stanford vs Oregon

News
Stanford has a wonderful football program. It holds its student-athletes to the same rigorous academic standards as its less athletic students. The Cardinal plays fundamentally sound, physical football. It consistently beats teams not named Oregon. Even in a season when other Pac-12 teams engage in a boorish competition to see which team can embarrass itself the most, Stanford is rock solid—mind-boggling ...   More

If that sounds familiar, there’s a reason: This is the exact same script as 2010. Those Ducks limped out of the stadium that day with a 15-13 win, the second-lowest point total of the Chip Kelly era. Oregon would go on to play for the national ...   More

The field goal attempt missed the uprights and the final bell sounded: USC 38, Oregon 35. That game in November last year was one for the ages. USC snapped the nation's longest home-winning streak by being the first visiting team in 22 tries to leave Autzen Stadium with a victory. That game quashed any chance of a rematch with LSU in the national championship game that Oregon players had been chirping ...   More
