Dave can relax. I'm back, and he doesn't have to do the quack fix anymore. Not a lot of hype for the upcoming game, but here's the quack I could find.
- Rob Moseley's piece this morning is in Carson York and Brandon Hanna. They are both from Idaho, so you know what the means: terrible headline potato puns! But if you can get past the headline, it's a good piece on two players who have grown up together, and are now stepping up for the Ducks on opposite sides of the ball.
- Moseley also has his daily practice update/injury report. Sounds like Thomas is looking good to play, while LMJ is questionable, and Ricky Heimuli is doubtful. In this post, he also posts an interview that he did with linebackers coach Don Pellum, who talked about true freshman Anthony Wallce's debut last week. He also passes along some info on the other freshmen linebackers.
- It's not just football that is happening this weekend. The Oregon volleyball team is hosting Colorado and Utah on Friday and Saturday. The Ducks are sitting at 7-5 in conference and ranked in the top 20. The Utes and Buffaloes are both below .500 overall, and Colorado is winless in conference.
- The Pac-12 Cross Country championships are this weekend in Phoenix. Jordan Hasay, the reigning Pac-10 individual champion, is looking to lead the Ducks to the title in a very competitive race. The Duck men aren't expected to win. Luke Puskedra will compete for the individual title, but he is focusing more on the national meet.
- Josh from FishDuck has his video preview of Washington State up. The Cougs are much improved this season, but don't have the rushing attack to complement their passing game.
- Lastly, it'll be a huge recruiting weekend for the Ducks. In-state LB Brett Bafaro is announcing his school today. Meanwhile, the Ducks will be hosting some highly ranked defensive backs tomorrow.
Stick around after the jump for a video of Kenjon Barner, and leave anything else in the comments. GO DUCKS!
