Another Pac-10 gameday...is that anything like another manic Monday? We shall see. Here's the Quack:
- Here's the official GoDucks.com release previewing men's basketball on the road at Cal and Stanford. Tonight's game at 7:30 is on Comcast Sportsnet. Saturday's tilt with Stanford is not. You will find some interest tidbits in the release...turns out Michael Dunigan is currently second in the Pac-10 for field goal percentage at 59%. Maybe get him the ball more? Tonight Dunigan faces Cal's 7-3 center, Max Zhang.
- A predictably excellent preview of the Cal game by Avinash over at California Golden Blogs. Have you seen this video yet?
- Mike Tokito of The Oregonian also previews the weekend, with notes from around the conference.
- The R-G's Bob Clark takes a deep look at Mike Dunlap's role as associate head coach for men's hoops. No surprise, Dunlap is preaching patience.
- Rob Moseley ain't just about football. Today he features Nicole Canepa, a 6-5 post player for the lady Ducks. Canepa has taken well to her role off the bench, then dropped 38 on Arizona upon her return to the starting line-up.
- Who am I kidding, Moseley is still our man for football. He continues to review the 2009 season, today looking at the linebackers.
- Oregon's current football recruiting class is currently ranked about 25th. That could change significantly in the next couple weeks. Brian McLaughlin of Sporting News Blogs thinks Oregon could crack the top 10 if they were to land the "Big Three" of defensive ends Owamagbe Odighizuwa and Gabe King, and running back Lache Seastrunk. (Never mind his note on Dillon Baxter...we know that's not going to happen.)
- ESPN's Ted Miller announces his Pac-10 coaches of the decade. Only Oregon and Oregon State have two on the list. Oregon was also involved in four of Miller's Pac-10 games of the decade. UW, by the way, made the list once - for their 33-30 win over Oregon State...WAY BACK IN 2000! I love that.
- Has the university done wrong by former A.D. Bill Moos? Ron Bellamy of the R-G seems to think so. Moos recently tried to land a job with UNLV, but was blocked by some apparently fuzzy legal language in his exit settlement from a couple years back. Quite the saga. Ken Goe of The Oregonian weighs in.
Don't hog the Quack! If you find something we missed, you're obligated to share, sort of. As signing day creeps closer, we're all on the lookout for some big - and hopefully good - Duck news.
