While some clown in Portland is yapping about accountability taking a vacation in Corvallis, it seems that newsworthy events in Eugene are also on break. ATQers may have to provide a Quack Fix assist if something interesting breaks later in the day. There's not much this morning:
- The R-G's Curtis Anderson caught up with Oregon sprinter Amber Purvis as she prepares for this weekend's Pac-10 Track & Field Championships. She could solidify herself as one of the all-time great UO sprinters if she can take her specialties, the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay.
- Oregon's O must look like a big target for the other Pac-10 track & field teams. The Ducks are looking to defend both men's and women's conference titles this weekend in Berkeley, CA. Here's a video preview from KVAL.
- If you're really into track & field, you can check out Oregon's updated individual performances, along with each athlete's regional and national ranking. Mild curses to whoever decided to publish this as a PDF.
- Oregon's women's golfers are good in the classroom too. The team was listed among the top 10 percent academically as recognized by the NCAA in an announcement yesterday. OSU's women's golf team also made the list, as did four teams from University of Portland.
- AZCentral.com is reporting that Oregon has made a scholarship offer to Brett Hundley, a 6-3, 215 QB out of Chandler, AZ. The class of 2011 QB is rated 4-star and listed as the no. 5 QB prospect at Scout.com.
If you can scrape up more Quack, please share with the group.
