Nothing like a little afternoon quack to break up a long, three day weekend. With an amazing day of college football behind us, we have the makings of an excellent season. I thought it would be hard to top last year's "season of the upset" but this season looks promising. Scouring the Internet to find some positive Duck news was a little difficult but I found some good things.
- Nick Reed made the 53-man roster for the Seattle Seahawks. Congratulations to the guy with the motor that won't quit.
- How about that Oregon Women's Volleyball Team? Ahem, let me rephrase...that 4-0, No. 14 in the nation Oregon Women's Volleyball team. With the win over Seattle at Mac Court on Friday, that makes 4 straight sweeps. My how far this team has come in the last 4 years.
- Cross Country is at it again with a sweep in the Pre's Trail Pre-View last Friday. Next up for the Cross Country Team is the Bill Dellinger Invitational on October 2nd.
- Duck Sports News has released their 2009 wallpapers for iphones, computers and all kinds of electronic devices. I'm thinking Jay Jones has a crush on a certain cheerleader. ;)
- George Schroeder has an article up on the R-G talking about LeGarrette Blount wanting to call Boise State's Chris Petersen and Bryon Hout to apologize for his actions last Thursday.
- I'm not sure if we missed this one or what but the R-G also has a story up about Candyce Flynn, the newest member of the Oregon Women's Basketball Team.
- The State Board of Higher Education in Oregon has approved a financial distribution plan that reduces the general fund budget for all seven Oregon universities. The article also contains a variety of information on how much each school will lose and where money will be distributed.
- Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott is calling for sanctions against BSU player Byron Hout for his role in the LeGarrette Blount fiasco from Thursday. We always wanted Tom Hansen to get more involved in matters like these. Looks like Scott is the answer to that request.
As always, if you find some quack out there, please leave some in the comments. We won't prosecute you for distribution.
