Quack Fix: Bellotti named to College Football Hall of Fame, softball returns to Women's College World Series

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

A year after being upset by Nebraska, the No. 1 Oregon softball team punched their ticket to Oklahoma City with a 6-2 win over No. 16 Minnesota. All that and more in this Monday morning edition of Quack Fix.

Links:

  • You might have heard the Ducks have a half-decent softball team. On Sunday, Oregon clinched a berth in the Women's College World Series with a 6-2 win over Minnesota to complete the two game sweep in the Super Regional. Leading by one, the Ducks added three insurance runs in the seventh to seal the win. Cheridan Hawkins won her 33rd game of the season, tying Jessica Moore for second on Oregon's single-season wins list. The Ducks will face Florida State on Thursday with first pitch scheduled for 11:30 a.m. PT.
  • After finishing fourth in the Pac-12 this season, Oregon baseball will not host a regional for the first time since 2010. Their in-state rivals, the No. 1 Oregon State Beavers, of course will host a regional. The Beavers are the only Pac-12 team to host a regional this season. The Ducks will have to wait until the morning until they find out where to pack their bags for. The 64-team field will be announced in just a couple of hours at 9 a.m. PT on ESPNU.
  • In case you missed it, the National Football Foundation announced that former Oregon head coach Mike Bellotti was selected for the College Football Hall of Fame. In 14 years with the Ducks, Bellotti was the winningest coach in school history with a 116-55 record. His 72-43 record in conference play is the third best in conference history. Perhaps the highlight of Bellotti's career with the Ducks was the 2001 team that won the Pac-10 and defeated Colorado in the Fiesta Bowl (Yes, Colorado was once good enough for the BCS), finishing No. 2 in the polls.
  • The Oregonian's Ken Goe presents his weekly track & field rundown in what should be a busy week. This weekend, Hayward Field will host the annual Prefontaine Classic, named the best non-championship meet in the world. At the collegiate levels, Oregon will head to Arkansas for the NCAA West Preliminary Rounds with high hopes in preparation of this year's NCAA Championships, which of course will be held right here in Eugene June 11-14.

Tweet of the Day

While scrolling through the Twittersphere, this one caught my eye. In a very confused moment, I searched "sexiest man in college basketball," and discovered new Oregon State head coach Wayne Tinkle was named the sexiest man in college basketball earlier this year. So he might be doomed with the task of making Oregon State basketball relevant, but hey, at least he's got something to boost his confidence.
