Hopefully, everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. Here's some quack to help you through the holiday hangover.
- It was a record-setting weekend at the Prefontaine Classic as 13 of the 19 events had new meet and field records set. Andrew Wheating, in his final appearance at Hayward field, finished fifth in the Bowerman Mile at 3:51.74. That mark shattered the 26-year school record of 3:53.00 and is the seventh-best collegiate mark ever. After the race, Wheating even felt regret that he might have been able to do more as he finished just 1.99 seconds behind the winner.
- Bob Rickert blogs that the Ducks will get a visit this month from defensive tackle recruit Kevin McReynolds. Rivals has McReynolds as a 4-star prospect and the 22nd best DT in the class. Rickert also notes that QB recruit Jerrard Randall has set his official visit at Oregon for September 18.
- Phil Steele looks back at how the Pac-10 teams fared over the last ten years as he picks his team of the decade. He also includes the bowl records for each team during that span -- though he seems to have a problem tabulating BCS bowl records.
- In baseball news, Madison Boer was added to the 2010 Collegiate National Teams Trial roster, joining fellow Ducks Tyler Anderson and Scott McGough. Of the 36 players invited, 22 will make the final roster. Oregon and Call State Fullerton were the only teams to have three players and invited and, remarkably, the three Ducks made up nearly half of the Pac-10's eight total invitations.
