Quack Fix: Humphrey will transfer, conference expansion hot topic at BCS meetings

Is there any possibility we re-hire Ernie Kent? I think, at this point, it should at least be considered. (And yes, I'm being sarcastic.) Here's your Wednesday Morning Quack Fix:

  • In case you missed it, news broke yesterday that Matt Humphrey has decided to transfer. And, to add insult to injury, the deciding factor was Oregon's inability to fill the coaching vacancy left after Kent was let go over a month ago. Dave pretty much summed up how I feel about the whole situation.
  • In other news, ESPN.com's Ted Miller, reporting from the BCS meetings in Scottsdale, discussed the topic of conference expansion extensively yesterday. According to Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott, the Pac-10 doesn't need to expand. And as far as Big Ten expansion, well, so far, not much has been said, aside from speculation.
  • In what appears to be an effort to potentially replace embattled quarterback and professional sexual assaulter Ben Roethlisberger, the Pittsburgh Steelers acquired Byron Leftwich from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday. How is this relevant to ATQ? Because Leftwich could be competing with former Oregon QB Dennis Dixon for the starting job should Big Ben be convicted of the millions of crimes he's, in all likelihood, committed. (The truth is, I only wrote this paragraph in an effort to, for the first time, mention Big Ben's gray penis on ATQ. Mission accomplished!)
  • "Slick Rick" Neuheisel opened his big trap again yesterday, this time to voice his opinion on why Pete Carroll left USC for the NFL. Ignoring the obvious reasons (NCAA sanctions, a disappointing season, a golden opportunity,  etc.), NeuWeasel, in part, credits Oregon. Okay, that's a somewhat opportunistic conclusion. It seems Rick will stop at nothing to bury the hatchet with Oregon fans. Maybe he should consider applying to replace Kent...
