Morning Quack Fix: 5.29.09

Good morning everyone! It's been a busy week around ATQ. If you've missed any of the posts, we've covered the Harper and Roper transfers, we looked back at some old Duckvision, and discussed some really bad writing, and what it means for blogs in general. On to the quack of the day!

  • The Oregon track team is heading into the NCAA West regionals this weekend. The meet starts with the javelin at 2:40, and goducks.com will have interactive features to keep you up to date with all the news. For those that haven't been keeping close tabs on the track team, the Daily Emerald has a good preview of the event.
  • Over at his blog, Ted Miller is breaking down the critical junctures for each Pac-10 team. Not surprisingly, Oregon's is the first four games, which will tell a lot about the team. At Boise State is no easy way to start a season, but luckily the next 3 games (Purdue, Utah, Cal) are all at home.
  • Doc Saturday continues to preview teams for the upcoming football season, which is less than 100 days away by the way, and this time looks at USC. It is absolutely disgusting how much talent that teams has. Doc says that the only thing stopping USC, is USC. If they simply do not make mistakes (which is what Aaron Corp avoided so well this spring), they will most likely win the game. They will be favored in every game. If they can develop a reliable playmaker, something they have not really had since Reggie Bush, watch out.
  • With the baseball season over, it's time to start looking at the lessons of this season. It was hard, but the players are responding the right way. They took their lumps, but they wouldn't have it any other way. It was a trial that will make the team better in the long run. However, the falter last season was not promising. Coach Horton actually said, "We actually got more incompetent playing the game of baseball." Yikes. But you know the saying: what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. With a great coach, this time will be getting much better over the next few years.

As always, leave your comments and links below! GO DUCKS!
