- Ted Miller has a preview of the conference teams at the quarterback position. Despite breaking in a brand-new starter, Oregon is listed in the "good shape" category rather than the "we'll see". Though Oregon State is listed in "great shape". Ignoring Chip Kelly's potential wrath, Miller also entertains a hypothetical: if we had a four-team playoff last year and Oregon beats USC, would the Ducks get the nod over Alabama for the fourth seed. Finally, in preparation for 12 BCS-conference presidents meeting in Washington DC today to discuss the football post-season, Miller has prepared a primer on the topic.
- Ken Goe wonders if there can be a repeat of the 800m from the 2008 Olympic Trials where runners with Oregon ties swept the top three spots. Attempting to join 2008's winner Nick Symonds in the feat this year are Oregon Track Club's Tyler Mulder and Oregon junior Elijah Greer.
