Another week, another national championship game for the Ducks. Only 3 more left.
- Oregon sits at number 1 in the BCS, though the gap closed between Oregon, Auburn, and TCU. Oregon and Auburn have the clear lead, and if they win out, will end up first and second at the end of the season. But TCU's annihilation of Utah this weekend gave them a huge boost, and effectively guaranteed that they will be the top non-AQ school at the end of the season, and have solidified their spot at the "next in line," should Oregon or Auburn fall.
- The Heisman watch for LaMichael James continues, and he still sits strong at second behind Cam Newton. Though he had a largely lackluster day against UW, he had 3 TDs, and you know how the voters love padding stats. James leads the nation in rushing by 18 yards per game, which doesn't hurt either.
- But there's a bit of a cloud over the QB situation at the moment, as Nate Costa will have his status confirmed today, though most are expecting the news that Costa won't see the field again as an Oregon Duck. But like so many other injured Ducks before him, you know he'll be on the sidelines coaching and exhorting his team.
- Rob Moseley has all the stats for the upcoming Cal-Oregon matchup. Cal has a solid defense, but have been uneven on offense. If Oregon doesn't hand them great field position, Cal will have a tough time driving the length of the field, like most opponents
- Washington's play during this weekend's game earned another hater, and if you're a Duck fan and your hate is waning, you're not paying attention. Washington's AD Scott Woodward went on UW radio pregame, and made some ridiculous comments about Oregon. I'm not usually a fan of SportsbyBrooks, but he rightfully rips Woodward's comments. I would say that Woodward is an embarrassment to his school, but have you ever met a Husky fan?
- Oregon men's basketball started over the weekend, and the took on Northwest Christian University in an exhibition on Friday. Oregon took a 4 point lead at halftime, and turned it into a 27 point win with strong defensive pressure. Teondre Williams twisted his ankle, further hurting Oregon's depth. This team will have to work incredibly hard to stay remotely competitive, but hopefully that will lay the foundation for future success.
- The Oregon women had their second exhibition of the year on Saturday, beating Westmont College 93-68. While the Ducks held only an 8 point lead at the half, they turned on the pressure on speed in the second half, and quickly put the game away.
After the jump, we have some video interviews after all the weekend action. Leave any other quack in the comments. GO DUCKS!
