Another day, another fix. Not a ton out there today, but at least it's Friday, right? Right. Okay, here's what I've got:
- Oregon rover T.J. Ward was named to the preseason Lott Trophy watch list this week. The trophy is handed out annually to the defensive player that best exemplifies the award's IMPACT acronym: Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity. Ohio State linebacker James Laurinaitis received the award last year. Former Oregon stand-out defensive end Nick Reed also received recognition when he was named the Lott Trophy IMPACT Player of the Week in December.
- The Register-Guard's Rob Moseley updated Oregon's depth chart yesterday. He's basing it on what he's seen thus far in spring practices.
- Zack Meisel of THE Ohio State University's The Lattern student publication has an interesting piece on former Oregon walk-on Tony Ranieri, and his take on the difference between Big Ten and Pac-10 football. Ranieri, a Cinncinnati native, transferred to Ohio State and is now a junior wide receiver for the Buckeyes.
- The San Antonio Spurs waived Oregon forward Malik Hairston on Wednesday to make room on their 15-man roster for Marcus Williams. Hairston, acquired by the Spurs in a draft-day trade with Phoenix last June, appeared in 15 games for the Spurs this season, averaging 3.3 points and 1.9 rebounds in 10.3 minutes per game
That's all. Leave the leftovers in the comments.
