All I needed last night was an LSU cover to win my money pool. Was that so much to ask? Here's your first dose of off-season quack:
- Oregon finished ranked #4 in both the final AP and coaches' poll released last night. USC finished #6 in the AP with Stanford coming in at #7 in both polls.
- De'Anthony Thomas was named a freshman All-American as an all-purpose player by the Football Writers Association of America. Joining him on the team from the conference were Sean Mannion, Marqise Lee, Dion Bailey (LB-USC) and Eric Rowe (DB-Utah).
- The latest on Jonathan Lloyd is that he's questionable for Thursday's game against Arizona State after bruising his knee in Sunday's game against Cal. Lloyd not playing might mean more action for true freshman Brett Kingma.
- With the Arizona basketball road trip coming up this week, Bob Clark has the Ducks sixth in weekly rankings.
- Ted Miller has his final Pac-12 power rankings in which he wonders which season is Oregon's all-time best: 2001, 2010 or 2011? What does everyone here think?
