It sure was a blast to watch Oregon baseball this year. It's sad the season is over, but I am looking forward to seeing what the team and Horton can do next year.
- The Ducks again rallied late, this time scoring twice in the top of the 8th to tie the game. Kent Satte pulled off the walk-off victory with a bloop hit to left field that appeared to get lost in the sun.
- George Schroeder writes that the next order of baseball business for the athletic department is to extend George Horton, whose contract runs through this September. The good news is that both sides sound like they expect to get a deal done.
- And, if recounting the end of the baseball season isn't your thing, Ted Miller has you covered. First, Ted runs down which conference opponents each team misses this season (for Oregon, it's Utah and UCLA). Next, he lists the conferences top returning tacklers from last season as well as the number of starters each team has returning.
- With the track & field season over, Curtis Martin writes that both Phyllis Francis and English Gardner are turning their eyes towards the Olympic Trials, which kick off next Friday at Hayward Field.
- As Casey Martin prepares for the U.S. Open this week, Adam Jude has a story recounting how Martin won a golfing bet off of Tiger Woods while they were teammates at Stanford.
The Oregonian also has some videos with the Ducks after their season ended last night. Those videos are after the jump.
