Quack Fix: Frosh QB Bennett turns heads while QB competition heats up, Kenny Rowe on Hendicks watch list

The season is fast approaching. So fast, in fact, that I'm not even able to keep up with my morning fix-posting duties. Anyway, sorry for the delay. Here's your Wednesday Morning Afternoon Quack Fix:

  • The big name coming out of Day 2 of fall camp seemed to be freshman quarterback Bryan Bennett. The R-G's Adam Jude first mentioned Bennett in his Tuesday practice notes. Then the Oregonian's Ken Goe posted that Bennett made a good first impression. Today, Goe followed that post up with a story on Bennett. Did we just add a third QB to the competition? Probably not, but it's nice to know there are a few more options than we all probably thought after the Masoli incident.
  • As for the two more pertinent Oregon quarterbacks, it sounds like the competition is closer than we might think.
  • Goe also had a nice feature on Kenny Rowe. The senior defensive end was also named one of six Pac-10 players on the Hendicks Award watch list yesterday.
  • Ted Miller posted his preseason Pac-10 power rankings yesterday, with Oregon coming in at No. 1. That probably doesn't surprise anyone, but remember, Miller had Oregon No. 2 on his Pac-10 media poll ballot. Miller also covered safeties in his latest installment of the Pac-10 preseason position reviews.
  • The Seattle Seahawks released former Oregon wide receiver Marcus Maxwell yesterday, bringing the total number of Oregon alums currently playing in the NFL to 30 (six more than our rivals in Corvallis, by the way). Best of luck to Marcus, who I'm sure will land on his feet.
