Is no news good news? Kinda feels that way. There's not a lot of quack - take your share but leave a little for your fellow quack-heads.
- After so much media madness, The Oregonian's Ken Goe provides a more rational perspective on Oregon football's off-season issues. The OSU Barometer also has an extremely fair take on the situation.
- More perspective from Neil Ghosh at Bleacher Report - he reminds us about issues at Ohio State, Florida, Alabama and Penn State.
- Former Duck cornerback Walter Thurmond's NFL combine work will be limited to interviews and a medical exam. Thurmond is still rehabbing his injured knee, but hopes to perform for NFL personnel at Oregon's pro day in April.
- It's another hoops game day in the Pac-10. USC is still in the hunt for a regular season conference title - which is all they can win this year - while there's just about no way out of last place for the Ducks. Bob Clark of the R-G examines what the two teams have left to play for tonight (no TV, again).
- Clark also logged some men's hoops notes while waiting for a delayed flight with the team last night. And, Oregon graduate Tom Jernstedt will be inducted into the collegiate basketball hall of fame after 38 years and several executive positions with the NCAA.
- Mike Tokito says most indications are that Oregon can't beat USC again in men's hoops. Except that the Trojans are 1-5 against the bottom four teams in the Pac-10.
- Ducks baseball kicks off a four-game set in Hawaii following their 3-1 start in California. Billy Hull of the Honolulu Star Bulletin has an in-depth preview of the Ducks' first visit to the islands since 1978.
- Rob Moseley with the feel-good story of the day: Oregon seniors Taylor Lilley and Micaela Cocks have a lot more in common than just 3-point accuracy.
