Remember when Oregon State won back-to-back national baseball championships? Yeah, me neither. Here's your Wednesday Morning Quack Fix:
- The surging No. 17 Oregon baseball team took advantage of the slumping Beavers, winning the first game of the Civil War series last night at PK Park, 9-4. It was the first of five match-ups scheduled for this season between the two inner-state rivals. The Ducks get two days off before their three-game home stand against Washington State this Friday.
- But arguably the more anticipated event this weekend is the football team's Spring Game on Saturday. For those of you attending, here's a bit more info. I've actually never had the pleasure of attending the Spring Game. Is it worth driving up from San Francisco?
- New Oregon basketball coach Dana Altman started assembling his coaching staff yesterday, adding long-time Creighton assistant Brian Fish. Still no word on whether recruiting extraordinaire Kenny Payne will be retained from Ernie Kent's staff.
- The R-G's Rob Moseley had a nice piece on walk-on receiver Justin Hoffman yesterday. It sounds like, given all the turmoil around the position this offseason (read: Garrett Embry and Jamere Holland), Hoffman has a shot at significant time this fall.
