Quack Fix: Pac-10, er, 12 gets a face-lift, Oregon's all-decade team, fall camp schedule announced

Ya know what's going to be special about this Quack Fix? I'm not going to mention Jeremiah Masoli. Well, not from here on out, anyway. Here's your Wednesday Morning Quack Fix:

  • Let's start with the Pac-10—or should we start calling it the Pac-12 to get used to its "mathematically correct" new name? The re-branded conference was the hot topic yesterday, and likely will be all week as the savvy, smart, search engine optimized Pac-10/12 commissioner Larry Scott, who has apparently impressed everyone ever, is hyping the conference from the heart of the Big Apple. Believe me, I'm all for the new logo and the shift in strategy. I think we all are. But the best news to come out of the W Hotel in Manhattan yesterday was that the Pac-10/12 is leaning toward keeping the 9-game conference schedule intact. If that is in fact true, well, long live Larry.
  • In the next month as the season approaches, the Oregonian's Aaron Fentress will be rolling out Oregon's all-decade team, starting with the quarterbacks. Make sure you vote in the poll for whom you think should be considered Oregon's QB of the decade.
  • Also in the next few weeks, the R-G's Rob Moseley will be rolling out his positional previews, and he too started with the quarterbacks yesterday.
  • If this doesn't get you excited, I don't know what will: The Ducks have released a tentative practice schedule for fall camp. Practices will commence in the afternoon Monday, Aug. 9. That's 12 days from today.
  • Former Oregon safety T.J. Ward signed a multi-year contract with the Cleveland Browns yesterday. The hard-hitting, highlight-reel-making Ward was the first Oregon player selected in April's draft when the Browns made him the 38th overall pick in the second round.
  • LostLetterman.com continues its countdown of the top 100 college football traditions, and coming in at a solid No. 24 are Oregon's cheerleaders. We should all feel like proud fathers...or something less creepy maybe.
