Luke Jackson is back in Eugene with his first coaching gig, Oregon tries to end their losing streak against Cal, Vin Lananna continues to have high hopes for Eugene, and we have Marcus Mariota.
- Adam Jude caught up with Luke Jackson about his injury-riddled NBA career and his new job at Northwest Christian. I never realized just how bad Jackson's injury situation was. He had two herniated disks in his back at 22, and later tore his hamstring completely off the bone. But he's now back in Eugene, head coach of NAIA Northwest Christian University. Jude does a great job with this article, so check it out.
- Oregon hosts Cal tonight, a team Oregon hasn't beat in 10 attempts. With Dominic Artis still out, it won't be easy for the Ducks. Cal has won 5 of the last 6 behind league leading scorer Allen Crabbe, and the motivational tactics of Mike Montgomery.
- Vin Lananna is still dreaming big. He wants Eugene to bid for the 2019 World Track & Field Championships.
- Ted Miller talks about spring ball, and focuses on QBs and new coaches. Even with a new coach, Oregon looks to be sitting pretty offensively returning Marcus Mariota.
Finally, not Duck related, but I find this infographic fascinating. Drop anything else in the comments. GO DUCKS!
