Good morning Duck fans. Here's what we could find around Quackland:
- Wondering who might fill the giant shoes of Max Unger next fall? Rob Moseley of the R-G writes that it will likely be Jordan Holmes. The junior center is "by far and away..." the leader of the offensive line, says Steve Greatwood. Notes by John Hunt of the Oregonian tell the story of just how much the Ducks might miss Unger next season.
- See Moseley's notes about yesterday's spring practice. Sound like Chip Kelly was more satisfied with the team's effort than on Monday.
- The Portland Tribune's Jason Vondersmith has more notes about receivers Jamere Holland and Chris Harper.
- Gary Horowitz of the Stateman Journal in Salem writes that cornerback Walter Thurmond III is setting the tone for the defense this spring.
- In baseball, the R-G's Bob Clark says the Ducks need to get more guys on base if they're going to get a win this week at USC. Adam Jude updates us on some baseball stats for the Ducks.
- You probably heard about Cyrus Hostetler's record javelin toss last week. The R-G's Chris Anderson has a nice article about Olympian Christina Scherwin, the volunteer coach who is making an impact with the Ducks track team. Cyrus, by the way, was named USA Track & Field's Athlete of the Week. He's probably almost as excited about being this week's GoDucks.com Student Athlete of the Week.
- A preview of Civil War softball. The men's golf team will face it's toughest competition yet this weekend at the ASU Thunderbird Invitational. Who knew Thunderbird sponsored golf events...I thought it was just cheap bum wine.
