Still can't believe the Ducks are Rose Bowl champions. Last night's game was incredible, with a bunch of standout individual performances. As such, there is a ton of quack out there this morning. I have picked out some of my favorites that I have found this morning. Please feel free to share any that you found in the comments below.
- Rob Moseley recounts Oregon's clock-killing drive in the fourth quarter that ended with a field goal to put Oregon up by 7. After a bunch of quick strike scores, this drive chewed up nearly six minutes of game clock and may have started to put a little pressure on Wisconsin with less than seven minutes left and only one timeout.
- Adam Jude has a couple of stories on some of the individual performances. First, he highlights the play of LaMichael James De'Anthony Thomas, who both rushed for over 150 yards. Next, he writes about defensive MVP Kiko Alonso, whose breakout performance included his key interception.
- Ted Miller has a bunch of videos and posts up on the Pac-12 blog. Here's his post on Oregon ending 95 years of frustration. I also particularly enjoyed his interview with Mark Asper.
- Bruce Feldman shares his thoughts on what the Rose Bowl victory means for the Ducks nationally.
I'm sure that everyone will have lots of other quack to share, so leave it in the comments. Rose Bowl Champs! Go Ducks!
