Again, the quack is plentiful this morning. Enjoy it while you can.
- After a disappointing series against USC last weekend, the Ducks shut out San Francisco 4-0 at PK Park on Monday afternoon. Sophomore pitcher Christian Jones threw six innings of four-hit ball while striking out seven. And, there's more Duck baseball coming up this week as the Ducks take on Portland tonight before hosting Arizona over the weekend.
- Rob Moseley takes a look at the emergence of former walkon and fifth-year senior Ramsen Golpashin, who is making his case to start on the offensive line.
- John Hunt has a feature on redshirt freshman DB Troy Hill, who has been making plays all spring. Hill's performance has been particularly impressive given that he didn't even officially join the team last season until the end of September as he awaited an NCAA ruling on his eligibility after playing as a fifth-year senior in high school.
- Hunt also has a piece on Eddie Pleasant who is eager to put the missed tackle on Michael Dyer behind him. Secondary coach John Neal expects big things from Pleasant this season, as it will be his second season after switching from linebacker.
- The Ducks had their 10th practice of the spring yesterday (out of 15), and Moseley, Chris Courtney and John Hunt all have practice reports. While Moseley thinks the defense came out on top, Courtney notes that both Darron Thomas and Bryan Bennett had more success in the passing game. On the Josh Huff injury front, Hunt has a quote from Scott Frost indicating that Huff could probably play now, though the team is going to be cautious in getting him back on the field.
- Ted Miller had a couple of interesting blog posts yesterday. First, he tabulates which conference schools have the most players in the NFL as well as how the Pac-10/12 stacks up against the other major conferences. Next, Miller notes that the conference has hired an NFL executive to help organize and run the conference championship game. Finally, Miller has a short piece on how each of the BCS teams fared financially. Oregon's appearance in the title game ended up costing just over $300,000.
