Morning Quack Fix: 1.22.09

Another weekend of Pac-10 hoops is upon us. Much is being said of Oregon's trip to the Bay Area; plus a few other tidbits.

Mike Tokito of The Oregonian previews the upcoming Pac-10 games, and lists his keys to Oregon finally ending the conference losing streak.

John Hunt wrote an interesting piece on the Dunigan Project.

Bob Clark reminds us that history is not on Oregon's side. The Ducks simply do not win in Maples Pavillion.

Rob Moseley provides a quick update on the football program's ongoing search to fill two assistant coach positions. He also noted a SI.com article by Andy Staples who claims Oregon and Oregon State coaches are among the best at overcoming two critical recruiting obstacles: lack of a local talent pool and distance.

Scout.com is reporting that Oregon has landed a commitment from 3-star cornerback Brian Jackson from Hoover, AL. The Ducks edged out the likes of Alabama, Auburn and Florida. And did anyone else notice that 4-star JC safety Anthony Leon is now shown as a "soft verbal"? Evidently he wants to revisit Cal. I blame TwistNhisminions.

Baseball! Jason Vondersmith of the Portland Tribune takes a look at the short-term goals for Oregon's baseball program. Coach Horton says the Ducks have the talent to immediately compete for the playoffs.

And a little politics... Rachel Bachman of The Oregonian writes that the State of Oregon must abolish lottery-run sports games or it will lose its right to host NCAA Men's Basketball tournament games after the 2009 season.
