Looks like the Ducks are getting an early start on the off-season. Here's your Tuesday quack fix:
- The big news from yesterday was the news that Cliff Harris was (finally?) dismissed from the team after being cited for marijuana possession 10 days ago. Adam Jude's article covers some of the memorable moments (both good and bad) of Cliff's time at Oregon.
- LaMichael James became the third Duck to earn All-American honors for multiple seasons after being named to the AFCA coaches’ all-America team. James was honored as an "all-purpose" player with Montee Ball and Trent Richardson claiming the running back spots.
- Aaron Fentress has a preview of Wisconsin, focusing on the challenge presented by Russell Wilson and Ball.
- As many of you noted yesterday in the comments, Oregon sold through its allotment of Rose Bowl tickets quickly. If you didn't get one, it looks like your best option will be to hit the secondary market.
- Ted Miller has a couple of posts up. First, he assesses the Pac-12 after its first season and lists some his likes and dislikes. Next, he wraps up the regular season, including his pick of De'Anthony Thomas for top newcomer.
- Charles Fischer also has the latest fish report from the Pac-12 championship game. As usual, it's another great breakdown, so check it out.
- Bob Clark focuses on the Stanford basketball team in his weekly look around the conference. And, in his power rankings, Oregon comes in at #6.
- Curtis Anderson has a nice story up reviewing the women's volleyball season, which ended in the first round of the NCAA tournament last week. After a season with some very impressive wins, including the upset of Penn State to start the season, it was unfortunate to see it come to an end.
