Today seems like a good time to remind you of our ATQ t-shirts. One version in particular fits very well with today's quack.
- Let's start off with the not ridiculous news. Oregon's Jordan Spencer threw the first no-hitter in school history last night.
- As most of you know, Oregon was profiled in an ESPN magazine article on marijuana use among college football players yesterday. The reaction.... well, there wasn't really much of one. George Schroeder and Ted Miller's biggest problem seemed to be that players were breaking Chip Kelly's rules when they light up. Rob Moseley noted on twitter that this is only a story because this could lead to lost playing time. But the chances of pot along leading to lost playing time is rather small. With the rules in place, it's clear that the school doesn't seem to care about casual marijuana use.
- KVAL caught up with some former players to get their take on the story. There is some divergent opinions, but the estimates on usage in ESPN's article should be taken with a massive grain of salt.
- The top ranked women's track and field team is trying to get that elusive outdoor national title. The Register Guard has a profile on middle distance runner Becca Friday, who is one of the most dependable runners on the team, and will be counted on in the title chase.
- There's been a lot of talk around here lately about dual meets, and good news, the Ducks and Arkansas will compete in one next year during the Oregon Relays, in a unique meet within a meet.
- Lastly, FishDuck has a couple interviews. David Melo has a written Q&A with Darrion Weems, and Kurt has a video one-on-one with Dan Rubenstien, of the Solid Verbal and SBNation. If you haven't been watching Dan on the SBNation video channel, subscribe now.
