Come and get your friday Quack!
- Oregon baseball is heading up to, *gulp*, Pullman this weekend. Poor guys. Washington State is sitting 4th in the Pac-10 right now. The top game should be the series opener on Saturday, between Oregon ace Erik Stavert and WSU ace Matt Way. Stavert is 2nd in the Pac-10 with a 1.88 ERA.
- The ODE has a profile on freshman infielder Danny Pulfer, who has been a leader on the team, and is starting to hit his stride. Since the Santa Clara series, he is hitting .289, and in the piece, he talks about the game slowing down for him. Pulfer, like the rest of the team, has gone through some tough times, but it is encouraging that they are keeping their heads up and fighting hard. It would be easy to give up on this season, but they haven't, and hopefully they can see some dividends by the end of the year.
- Eugene once again has the eye of the track world, with Saturday's Oregon Twighlight. The highlight of the meet should be the mens 4-mile relay, in which the Oregon team is going to try and break the collegiate record set by Michigan in 2005.
- In "O" lawsuit news, here are a few shots of the stadium from afar.
- Chip Kelly will be on the Jime Rome show today, at about 1:55pm PST.
- The Oregonian has a piece on Kellen Clemens today, and how he expects to start despite the drafting of Mark Sanchez. He's keeping his head up through the process, and it sounds that, at the very least, the Jets have a great backup, always something you need in the NFL.
- Lastly, around the college football blogosphere, kevanlee from OBNUG wrote a piece on being a fan in a no win situation (i.e. not a BCS conference). It would definitely be a difficult situation to have a ceiling that is below the rest of college football. T Kyle King from Dawg Sports gives his take on this subject as well. And if that doesn't suit your interest, the guys from BSU are already predicting a big Broncos win in September. Sounds like they're being real objective over there.
