It's Friday! So let's start off with some good news. Yesterday ATQ hit two million page views! It's been really exciting to see the growth of this site over the past year. Thanks to everyone who makes this part of your daily routine, and taking part in the best Oregon Duck community around. On to the quack!
- The Duck men lost again. And while they at least led this game (it was 2-0 at one point), the Ducks were 1/18 from three point range, and fell 89-57. I really don't have anything to add to this, but all the guys in the open thread were on fire last night. If you've got some time to kill, the 400+ comments of self-loathing and pain may make you forget just how bad our basketball team has become.
- The Duck women fell to Cal at Mac Court, 72-62. The Bears did an excellent job shutting down the most potent offense in the nation, and Oregon was outrebounded 53-31. Things don't get easier for the Ducks, as they face the No. 2 Stanford Cardinal this weekend.
- At least there's some football quack. Rob Moseley takes a look at the 2009 secondary, which was one of the most exciting part of the team. With youngsters like Cliff Harris, John Boyett, and Javes Lewis stepping up, the Ducks look to be in great shape heading into 2010, even if there are depth concerns.
- Ted Miller continues his decade retrospection with the All Pac-10 team. Three Duck linemen made the list: Haloti Ngata, Adam Snyder, and Max Unger. Miller also has a few predictions/questions for the next ten year. Most important, how will the Pac-10 keep up with the Big 10 and SEC in terms of TV and exposure.
- In recruiting news, OregonLive has a piece on incoming Duck CB Terrance Mitchell. While only a 3* recruit, Mitchell may be a bit underrated, and has excelled at the camps he's been to, and adds excellent depth to the secondary of this years class.
- Bob Rickert also has a roundup of the latest recruiting gossip. One of the Duck's top targets, DT Bjoern Werner, will be deciding between Oregon and FSU this weekend, though his decision won't be made public until signing day. Also, Owamagbe Odighizuwa is done with all his in home visits, and should be deciding soon as well. I like Oregon's chances, but you just never know. There's lot of other notes in his piece, so make sure to check it out.
