I’m not exactly sure when romance died for our generation. It certainly hasn’t been an overnight process – rather a more gradual decline in which the notions of romance and monogamy have detiriorated from the inside out. In fact, the concept of a relationship nowadays is borderline horrifyin…

Coming into the season, the Blazers were expected to be a doormat team, a shell of their former selves. They have four rookies in their regular rotation, including their starting point guard, and were expected to have a defense among the leagues worst. 11 games in, they are far from a top-ti…

I avoid talking about football games in the month of January and the Oregon Ducks in the same sentence. To predict the future is to jinx it. When people ask me for an opinion on where the Ducks will play in the postseason I usually answer, but I look for the nearest wood product and knock on it.

The American Volleyball Coaches Association released their weekly poll of collegiate volleyball teams and the Oregon Ducks once again found themselves slotted at No. 2, tying their highest ranking in program history.

Earlier this week, when the second BCS rankings came out, the Ducks dropped from third to fourth. This sent Duck fans into a frenzy. How could they make the title game now? They’re fourth! And Notre Dame is closing in on them. Voters surely are playing favorites with the SEC, right?

The hoopla is over. The islander quarterback is in fact a human being. His five interceptions the past four games prove his mortality. Yet, despite Kilimanjaro-sized expectations coming into his premier season, Marcus Mariota has weathered the storm of the first half of his first college foo…

Being a student sports journalist in college is tough. And no, it isn’t because of the way we are belittled by media relations folk or scoffed at by our peers for thinking we could make a career out of what we are doing. The difficulty is not in the meager pay – believe me, “meager” is a gen…

Over the last two decades MLB has been struggling to stay relevant. With the spotlight on football and basketball, baseball has been pushed into the dark. The historic allure is lost on today’s youth, and the idea of refusing to reference instant replay to make sure every call is correct is …

Six feet, three inches, packing 190 pounds and a 40-yard dash time of 4.5 seconds. That is the archetype for a traditional go-to receiver in college football. But if we know anything about Oregon’s offense, it’s that the Ducks are nowhere close to traditional.

The word came in a press release Monday afternoon: When Washington travels to Oregon for their Oct. 6 meeting, kickoff will be at 7:30 p.m. It will be the Ducks’ third-straight night game, and it has ruffled feathers of players and coaches within the program.

Stats. They are the proof in sports. Much like DNA evidence or eyewitness testimony in a courtroom, stats are the substantiation for almost everything in college football. And in the stat book so far, the men in varying shades of green and yellow have impressed this season.

Tyrann Mathieu, Cliff Harris, Michael Dyer, Jeremiah Masoli, Greg Reid. What do all these familiar names have in common? At one point they were all college football superstars on some of the nation’s premier teams. But sadly, the similarity that has come to define them is that they have all …

If you’re not like me, and haven’t watched literally every minute of the NBA playoffs — down to the last “Men at Work” promo — then perhaps you haven’t seen the latest installment of the league-endorsed “Big” campaign featuring the San Antonio Spurs. @@http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9H-RadR…
