Morning Quack Fix: 5.5.09 (Cinco de Mayo Edition)

Well, with spring football over, we've hit a slow period in the coverage of Oregon atheltics.  Here's your abbreviated quack fix. ¡Salud!

  • The Ducks have announced three more football games to be televised next season, with the Utah, Cal and USC games joining the  Boise State and and OSU games with television agreements.  Of those, Utah, Boise State, Oregon State and possibly USC will be shown nationally on ESPN.  Ted Miller notes the TV games for the rest of the conference, as well. 
  • The Nashua Telegraph (NH) has another flattering piece up on Chip Kelly, stating that he is, "among top offensive strategists."  While I have no problem with this claim, the article has the following gem that refers to three NH coaches (Dan Mullen, Gary Crowton and Kelly) as being, "in the top one percent of college football's greatest offensive minds category."  This is the sort of sentence that Fire Joe Morgan would have had a lot of fun with.  While the first half of the sentence indicates some statistical rigidity and something provable, the latter part is some bullshit category that cannot be proved.
  • The ODE has a story about what's in store for the football team over the next few months.  For the players, that means working on individual goals and hitting the weight room; the coaches will be out on the recruiting trail.

As always, contribute your thoughts or other newsworthy links below.

Go Ducks!
