Hey, it's a Tuesday and there's actually a little variety to the links this week. Unfortunately, it's primarily covering the fraternity theft and Rob Beard incidents. Let's get the latest theft coverage out of the way first.
- The Register-Guard's Greg Bolt writes that the Eugene Police Department remains quiet regarding the frat theft case, despite all the rumors floating around. This contradicts the KMTR news report that the police officially stated that Jeremiah Masoli and Garrett Embry "are not suspects and are not people of interest."
- Greg Bolt also writes that Rob Beard is recovering from a "relatively minor" surgery on Monday and looks to be released from the hospital in a couple of a days. This is great news considering how bleak things looked a couple of days ago when he was admitted to the hospital.
- In what's becoming a tradition for my Tuesday Quack Fix, Mike Tokito again notes that, for the third straight week, there are no conference teams in either major poll. And, after three straight weeks, I don't have much more to say on the subject.
- Bob Clark writes that Ernie Kent's job appears to be safe, for now. The article includes a bunch of quotes from Mike Bellotti on the subject, including this one: "I am one who will probably take the longer road because it’s my first time doing this...What you usually hear people in my position say is ‘we’ll evaluate it at the end of the season,’ and I think that’s wise advice and I should adhere to that."
- Aaron Fentress has a blog entry where he wonders what the future holds for Kellen Clemens. With Mark Sanchez taking control of the job in New York, Kellen will have to try and get a shot somewhere else. Particularly amusing to me as I write this from Chicago is that Fentress describes the Chicago Bears as a potential destination as a backup due to their "shaky" situation at QB.
- Jack Jensen, from something called Dime Magazine, calls Aaron Brooks "the NBA's next top point guard." The article takes a look at Brooks' path to the NBA and includes quotes from teammates and opponents, both past and present.
- In conference recruiting news, Ted Miller takes a look around the conference to see what the latest buzz for each team is. He also lists some of the big targets still available that have Pac-10 schools among their favorites, including a few for the Ducks.
