Will history repeat itself with another upset in Saturday’s Ducks-Huskies game? It’s been a rough start of the season for the Oregon Ducks and fans unaccustomed to 3 game losing streaks and conference championship dreams squashed in early October. And to make matters worse, the undefeated Washington Huskies are riding into Eugene fresh off a […]
Chip Kelly to USC? I guess it could happen. Chip seems like he’d hate LA and all expectations that would come from Trojans boosters. Word out of Eugene was that this was the part of the job he disliked most. He was able to get away with keeping (most) boosters at arm’s length because of […]
Many Oregon Ducks fans (myself included) were extremely optimistic that this would finally be the year they could break through and win that elusive BCS Championship. Heading into the season we had two potential Heisman Trophy candidates in Marcus Mariota and De’Anthony Thomas. Most of the offense from last year’s record-breaking team returned. There were […]
I meant to write this post yesterday, but work and lack of sleep (Stone woke me up at 4 am) meant an early bedtime and no blogging. But now that sufficient time has passed and I’ve had to wade through the expected “expert” analysis of the Ducks loss at Stanford, I thought I’d offer one […]
Heading into tonight game between Stanford and Oregon, I was like most Duck fans and college football pundits in expecting the Ducks to easily cover the 11 point spread in this year’s contest. Boy, I have never been so wrong in my life when it came to predicting a college football game. I chalked up […]
For every fan, their home stadium has a special place in their heart. And this is especially true with Ducks fans and Autzen Stadium.

If you’re a Ducks football fan and this video doesn’t get you fired up…then you’re not truly a Ducks football fan!
I”ve made it no secret that I’m a proud University of Oregon alum and crazy Ducks fan. I was approached by the co-founder of Duck Biz Lunch Larry LaMotte and asked if I would be interested in being featured in an upcoming issue of the alumni magazine. He told me they were looking for Ducks who have hired other Ducks and he knew that I have been working with fellow J-School grad Kelsey Kaufman (Class of ’12) since late last year. Naturally I was thrilled to participate in the interview and the article was just released in the most recent issue. You can read it below:
… With a fresh batch of UO graduates entering the professional world for the first time, many new graduates turn to alumni for guidance—while numerous alumni actively seek out Ducks looking for work. David Kaufer ’87, a School of Journalism and Communication graduate, recently hired another Duck alum, Kelsey Kaufman ’12, at his firm Kaufer DMC.
Yeah, I’m a little excited…
I’ll never forget the thrills and excitement of an undefeated 2010 Ducks season and the electricity that was in the stadium as we entered it 2 hours before the BCS Championship Game. The Ducks lost that game but they did a great job of building off of the season and turned it into a successful […]
