In a strange twist, you might actually get to see the game this weekend. Here's your quack.
- First, let's get to some great news. The Oregon/Missouri State game will be broadcast on ESPN3 and ESPN Gameplan if you are outside of the Comcast Sports Northwest area. This brings back memories of 2007, where Gameplan carried every OSN broadcast before the Pac-10 stopped allowing that. I'm not sure what caused this change, but I'm inclined to give Larry Scott credit.
- Rob Moseley has a Thursday practice update. Michael Clay's injury means that at least one true freshman linebacker should play this weekend, with the favorite being Rodney Hardrick, though Chip Kelly made it seem like he might not be the only one. Moseley had a video with Darron Thomas in his post, and Duck Territory has some post-practice interviews as well.
- Moseley's piece this morning is on Hroniss Grasu. He's had more pressure on him this season than just about any Duck, but he hasn't let that affect him, and he's done better than expected so far. Hroniss will face a different test this week as this is the first time he faces a true 3-4 defense.
- Ken Goe has a piece on another Oregon offensive lineman, Carson York. He's a force on and off the field, and will soon be starting a master's program. Coming out of high school, York had to choose between Oregon and Stanford, but chose the Ducks because he wanted to play for a winner, and not in a half-empty stadium.
- Ken Goe has another piece today on how this Oregon/Missouri State matchup came to be, and the trouble of scheduling FBS competition at the last minute. Schroeder has a similar piece, but says that these FCS games will continue with Tennessee Tech scheduled for next season.
- Ken Woody has a blog post up with some random thoughts, including how the Ducks match up with elite lines, and DAT's missed block/touchdown reception against Nevada.
- The No. 16 Oregon Volleyball team opens Pac-12 play this weekend, hosting the Arizona schools on Friday and Saturday. Curtis Anderson of the Register-Guard has a piece on outside hitter Alaina Bergsma. She is one of the top offensive threats in the country, and also happens to be the reigning Miss Lane County, and will be competing in the Miss Oregon pageant in late November.
