Quack Fix: Oregon women bring home a national championship, Eaton sets a world record, baseball wins series

New, 187 comments

Lots of quack to get to after a busy weekend. But let's hope the future is a bit quieter than recent weeks, as it seems that the Ducks legal problems are in the past.

  • With all the talk surrounding Jeremiah Masoli and LaMichael James, we may be overlooking the end of the Ernie Kent era. The Ducks were unsurprisingly left out of the NIT, and are not part of the 16-team CBI field. And just like that, what may be Ernie Kent's last season comes to an unceremonious end.
  • The Pac-10 got two teams into the NCAA tournament. Washington won the Pac-10 tourney, and likely wouldn't have gotten in otherwise, as they were given an 11 seed. Cal, the winner of the conference regular season is an eight seed. We will be having an ATQ bracket challenge with prizes involved. Details will be posted in the next day or two, so be ready to enter when we post all the details!
  • I'm not always a fan of Nick Daschel's writing, but he's done a very good job of looking at the recent Oregon legal troubles. His latest piece says its not time to judge Chip Kelly. And he's very right. As much as opposing fans will opine on how Oregon is headed towards disaster, these statements are absurdly premature. At this point, it looks like Kelly has taken the right steps, and time will tell if those steps bring about the desired result.
  • In a bit of on the field football news, Rob Moseley continues his spring previews with a look at the defensive line. With fan concerns about the position, this will obviously be watched closely during practices.

There's sure to be a lot of other quack floating around, so share yours below. GO DUCKS!
