It's dancin' time fellow Quackers! If you haven't joined the ATQ Tourney Challenge...GO HERE AND DO IT NOW. It is free and the only thing you have to lose is a little pride if JShufelt makes you look silly. Besides, with no Ducks dancing, you're removed from having to make those difficult homer selections.
Update: Bracket entries have closed. Thanks to all the ATQers who joined, and to TwistNHook (a.k.a. Twist The Tyrrancial; a.k.a. The Tyrant Boy King of Nothingness; a.k.a. BendNSnap) from CGB.
- The R-G's Rob Moseley says the list of candidates to replace Bev Smith as coach of Oregon's women's basketball is shaping up. Some of the names on the list are interesting, to say the least.
- George Schroeder caught up with Gonzaga head coach Mark Few, who is in Portland for the NCAA rounds 1 and probably 2. Of course they talked about Oregon. Few's ties to Oregon are strong, but with a meeting between Ernie Kent and Pat Kilkenny looming in the near future, Few is saying all the right things. For Few, its a new year and same story with all the Duck talk.
- It's fair to say Oregon's rebirth in baseball has been successful so far. An 8-8 record behind solid pitching and just enough hitting, and truly some storybook moments. Of course, Pac-10 play opens soon, and The R-G's Adam Jude reminds us that it won't be easy for the young Ducks.
- Ken Goe of The Oregonian had a nice note about Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti.
- Oregon track coach Dan Steele has been named Division 1 Indoor Track and Field National Coach of the Year.
- GoDucks.com has a press release preview of the inaugural Rose City Invitational, hosted by the University of Portland. First up for the Ducks is a Friday evening game verus the Pilots. The Ducks have back-to-back games Saturday against Washington and Hawaii.
A Morning Quack Fix with zero football news...I'm not happy about that. If you find anything interesting floating around cyberspace be sure to post it for us.
