The Return of the Fighting Duck: issues of the day, demystified

There's a website called Return of Kings written for 20-something men that reduces the sexual politics of the social messaging dating age down to their raw, unforgiving essence.

Oregon Ducks Playmakers to watch this season

No Chip, No Problem The Oregon Ducks, even without Chip Kelly, rank No. 3 in ESPN’s preseason power rankings. As you may know, offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich has taken over Kelly’s job as head coach. Seeing as how Helfrich ran the offense, the offensive scheme will look very similar.
