Morning Oatmeal: End of the week edition

Moseley's piece in today's R-G features T.J. Ward, who hopes to replace Matthew Harper at the free safety position.  Marvin Johnson is thought to be the other contender for the spot, but he has been covering the rover spot while Chung has been sidelined with an injury.  

Kevin Hudson of the ODE has an article up talking about the defense being the perceived strength of the teamand how that has been fulfilled thus far in spring practice.  Hudson does note that the offense may be coming around, and highlights the play of Jaison Williams for both his catching and run blocking performances.  

Today's Portland Tribune has some notes up that include Bellotti's disappointment with the QB play so far.  Also included (which has been reported elsewhere -- just in case anyone missed it) is that Myles Wade has (again) verbally committed to Oregon for next season.  Wade was a top recruit a few years back, but did not qualify academically.  

Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins adds his thoughts to the injury, rehab, and pro potential of Dennis Dixon.  A pretty good read, if not much is new to us.  It's nice to see Dennis get some national love, which he deserves. has a preview of each Pac-10 team's schedule.  And, it selects Oregon's as the toughest, considering both who and where they play.  August 30th can't get here fast enough.

And, just in case you ready for next season's basketball campaign, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times predicts an eight place finish for the Ducks.  Though, to be fair, he does mention that the Ducks could be a lot better depending on how the incoming freshman fare.  

And, one final quick note: Jonathan Stewart met with the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday.
