The Oregon Ducks dispatched Duke in the Sweet Sixteen on Thursday, 82-68. Oregon’s last points came off a Dillon Brooks three, which he hit as the shot clock expired with eight seconds left in the game. He celebrated a little, because his team had just beaten Duke, but a bit of silly controversy broke out after the…
Defending champion Duke is out, falling to No. 1 seed Oregon 82-68 in a game that was decided so early, nothing on the court is going to garner the attention of whatever happened between Mike Krzyzewski and Dillon Brooks in the handshake line. Or didn’t happen, depending on who you ask.
An Oregon Ducks women’s lacrosse player was caught on video smacking her opponent in the head with her stick three separate times during the team’s game against Detroit Mercy on Feb. 21.
An Alamo Bowl that looked just like the rest of this boring bowl season when Oregon and TCU headed to the locker rooms with the Ducks up 31-0 at halftime became a stunning win for the Horned Frogs after Oregon starting QB Vernon Adams Jr. left the game due to injury and the Ducks’ offense suddenly disappeared.
I’ve only seen this happen once before in my life: a team gets their punt blocked, recovers the blocked punt, and gains a first down. This is incredibly bad luck for a TCU team that’s down big (and down their quarterback).
Here is your always-amusing, often-disturbing College GameDay sign roundup, with our usual special guest appearance from SEC Nation.
Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. told media he’ll play this Saturday against Michigan State despite being dazed by a shot to the head that knocked him from this past weekend’s game against Eastern Washington.
Welcome to the Deadspin 25, a college football poll that strives to be more democratic and less useless than every other preseason poll. Leading up to the college football season kickoff, we will give you previews of the 25 teams that you, the readers, voted to be most worthy of writing about. Now, No. 3 Oregon.
It’s an an annual tradition: NFL fans boo the hell out of commissioner Roger Goodell, and he verifies their disapproval by screwing up someone’s name. This year, it was second-overall pick Marcus Mariota. (It sounds like he mispronounced “Oregon” too.)
A woman who spoke out against the University of Oregon after it accessed the counseling records of a student who said she was raped by several basketball players has been let go, according to an email she sent to colleagues today. In the email, which was first obtained by the Register-Guard, Karen Stokes said her…
It's heartening to realize that the general sentiment toward the scam that is collegiate amateurism seems to have come around to the Death To The NCAA worldview. What's gone unappreciated, though, is just how long the fight to expose the fraudulent governance of amateur sports has been going on. The concept of…
Pac-12 Player of the Year Joe Young hit a long-range three-pointer with one second remaining to lead his Oregon Ducks to a 67-64 win over 17th-ranked Utah in the Pac-12 tournament semi-finals.
The University of Oregon is being sued by a student who claims that after she was raped by three basketball players, the school tailored and delayed their discipline so the men could play in the NCAA tournament.

I want to call this dude a poor, unlucky bastard, but he didn't have to go and make that bet. Maintained his honor, though:
We'll start with the obvious, which is that the college football playoff was fucking awesome and I am happy that it finally exists. It returned meaningful football games to New Year's Day, which I had missed dearly. It amplified the importance of regular season games, rather than diluting them. It ginned up the…
This is Puddles, the cuddly mascot of the Oregon Ducks, getting kinda nasty and baring its, uh, breasts(?) for some fans at last night's national championship game.
62. 46. 48. 38. 24. 42. 45. 59. 45. 51. 44. 47. 51. 59. 20. That's how many points Oregon scored each game this season.
Here's how Oregon & Ohio State fans reacted live on ESPN's Student Section broadcast to the 70-yard Mariota-to-Marshall touchdown pass.
Oregon looks like a clear favorite over Ohio State in the college football championship game. The markets opened with Oregon as a 7 point favorite, which implies a 70 percent win probability. The predicted margin of victory is even higher with my team rankings based on margin of victory at The Power Rank. That's…
