Quack Fix: Ducks falter with double-bogeys; NCAA baseball just one day away!

It dawned on me this morning. For the first time since a high school teammate of mine pitched in an opener against Notre Dame (had to have been '89 or '90), I'm actually going to be interested in regional baseball playoffs. So in honor of my old buddy "Cheeks", here's your Thursday quack:

  • It was a rough second round for the top-seeded men's golf team at the NCAA championships. After a slew of double-bogeys (come on guys, that's what I shoot), the Ducks have dropped from third to ninth. Winning a championship is a real long-shot at this point, but the Ducks are just a shot back of eighth place UW...let's at least pass the Huskies.
  • Baseball post-season is uncharted waters for Oregon's baseball team, and coach George Horton knows his young baseball team will have to overcome their inexperience quickly. Aaron Fentress of The Oregonian writes that the young Duck's will be leaning heavily on Horton's experience, having coached in 11 NCAA tournaments.
  • Bob Clark of the R-G caught up with Ducks pitcher Madison Boer. The 6-4 sophomore right-hander is now Oregon's designated stopper, earning saves in the teams final three wins of the regular season.
  • Way to represent!!! ATQ members Addicted To Quack and Takimoto did a little Q&A over at Tomahawk Nation. Baseball is huge at FSU and it's nice to see their blog take some interest in the newest up-and-comer from the west coast.
  • No. 24 on Ted Miller's Pac-10 top 25 is Oregon linebacker Casey Matthews
