I hope everyone enjoys a long holiday weekend. Here's some quack to send you on your way.
- The Pac-10 officially becomes the Pac-12 today as Utah and Colorado join the conference. It's hard to believe that this month will mark the completion of Larry Scott's second year as commissioner given all that he has accomplished in such a short period of time.
- George Schroeder wonders what unintended consequences expansion might bring.
- Ted Miller has a bunch of posts over the last 24 hours. First, he previews the conference's wide receivers and offensive lines. Next, Miller picks the top 12 teams in Pac-10 history, with two Oregon squads making the list (though maybe not in the order you might have expected). Finally, Miller hosted a chat yesterday and here are the highlights (and a link to the full transcript).
- Joey Harrington was inducted into the Holiday Bowl Hall of Fame yesterday along with former Texas QB Major Applewhite. In the 2000 bowl, Joey became the second player in Holiday Bowl history to run, pass and catch a touchdown as the Ducks beat the Longhorns 35-30.
- Aaron Fentress looks at which former Ducks currently playing in the minor leagues will be the first to reach the major leagues. In the three years since baseball was reinstated, there are already 10 Ducks playing professionally.
