Quack Fix: Catron says he's "fine," expects to play in Saturday's Civil War

It's Civil War week! Here's your Wednesday Morning Quack Fix:

  • It sounds like Joevan Catron will suit up for Saturday's Civil War in Corvallis. Head coach Dana Altman told reporters earlier Tuesday there's a 50/50 chance the senior returns, but according to Catron, he's "fine." The Ducks' leading scorer has been out the past two games with a strained calf muscle and as John Hunt points out, plays a big role in Oregon's offense, so it will be nice to have him healthy and back in the lineup.
  • And for those of you whose excitement for Oregon hoops is waning, watch this. That's incoming recruit Jabari Brown posterizing some poor sap.
  • In other recruiting news, Oregon verbal commit and local boy Colt Lyerla has been upgraded by Rivals.com to 5-star status, bumping Oregon's 2011 class to No. 6 on Rivals' list.
  • Ted Miller lists all former Pac-10 players who will appear in the Pro Bowl in a week and a half. Congratulations to former Oregon star Haloti Ngata, who will be making his second appearance in as many seasons.
  • Miller also examines the effect of the "misses" on the Pac-12 schedule next fall. Despite retaining the 9-game conference slate (the Big 12 is the only other major conference to play 9 inner-conference opponents), Pac-12 teams won't play two teams from the other division each year.
  • Despite being named Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year, Walter Camp Coach of the Year, Sporting News Coach of the Year, Associated Press Coach of the Year, and AFCA Coach of the Year, Chip Kelly lost out to Auburn head coach Gene Chizik for the Paul "Bear" Bryant Coach of the Year award yesterday. If you're going award Chizik, don't you kind of have to give it to Gus Malzahn too? Just saying...
