- In other spring scrimmage action, sounds like the linebackers really stepped it up. Don Pellum checks in at the Oregon coaches blog, and lets us know he's really pleased with the growth of the young linebackers. Andy Mac also gives us some thoughts on Eddie Pleasant, who has been excelling as well. John Hunt chimes in with a piece on the linebackers as well. This is going to be a very fun group to watch through the rest of the spring and fall, and is deeper than any linebacker group we've had in years.
- Oregon track won a meet over UCLA this weekend, coming from behind, and sweeping the 5,000m and winning the 4x400, in which UCLA botched the baton hand-off, to take the meet.
- The drama surrounding the men's basketball team just won't end, as former Oregon assistant Mark Husdon's father-in-law wrote a letter to the editor lambasting Nike, Oregon, Kilkenny, and Kent. My opinion on this is mixed. I feel sorry for just about everyone involved. I don't feel that anyone wants to throw anyone else under the bus, but when you have a team that goes 2-17 in conference, and looks miserable doing it, that's what's going to happen, just like in every other profession.
- Lastly, Oregon baseball had another tough weekend. While they were able to get off their 7-game losing streak Saturday, they were trounced on Sunday, falling 11-1 to a below average Bears baseball team.
