Coach’s Comments: The Oregon Culture Has Troubling Warning Signs

This was a very difficult article to write, as it runs contrary to my core beliefs about the Mark Helfrich/Oregon coaching situation. But like learning football and sharing it with you over the years, as I come into other opinions...

Charles Fischer has been an intense fan of the Ducks for thirty years and has written reports about the football team on numerous internet football boards/blogs for over a dozen years. Known as “FishDuck” on those boards, and now on his popular Oregon football site,, he is acknowledged for providing intense detail in his Xs and Os play analyses. His site is the first to provide over 50 instructional videos about the Oregon offense and defense. In the summer of 2010, he was the first of any Oregon Sports Media to correctly and precisely identify and announce the new Oregon Hybrid 3-4 Phillips One-Gap Defense. He and his wife Lois, a daughter, Christine, and their dog (Abbie) reside in Eugene, Oregon, where he has been a financial advisor for 30 years serving clients in seven different states. He does not profess to be a coach or analyst, but simply a “hack” that enjoys sharing what he has learned and invites others to correct or add to this body of Oregon Football.
