It was an eventful weekend in the land of Quack.
- The Oregon men got swept over Thursday and Saturday, but it wasn't the soul sucking defeat we saw earlier in the season, and there will definitely be some good things to building on going into next season. To finish the season, Oregon held their annual team dinner, and gave out team awards. Tajuan Porter was the team MVP, and Matthew Humphrey was most improved. Somehow Joevan Catron got both the rebounding award and most inspirational. When your leading rebounder gets 6.8 rebounds per game, that's not a good sign.
- In more basketball news, Oregon got a verbal from SF Jamil Wilson, who chose the Ducks over Michigan State and Texas. Wilson is a small forward who says he loves Grant Hill's game. He'll help improve the offense immediately, and will help increase expectations on next season.
- Oregon baseball pulled off 3 unorthordox victories this weekend, winning 3/4 in a series with Santa Clara. The second game of the Saturday doubleheader was suspended after the 8th due to darkness, which would go to 13 innings on Sunday. The normally scheduled Sunday game was then cut short after 6 innings, so that the Santa Clara team could get home. But I'll take 3 wins any time.
- With spring football starting, the Register Guard has spring capsules, with what to watch for around the conference.
- Lastly, Mike Bellotti will make his decision "probably" within two weeks on whether or not he comes back to coach next season. Personally, I hope he sticks around for one more year. The coaching dynamic is great right now, I feel that the "uncertainty" isn't a big deal within the program, and who knows how Chip'll react to being head coach. Let's give Mike one last run.
