Quack Fix: Got turf? Football recruit tidbits; Duck men's golf begins NCAA regionals.

More like migraine quack fix for me this morning, so let's get right to it.

  • If you're hoping to grab up your own piece of old Autzen turf, you've got one last chance. The last remaining "souvenir" chunks of turf will be given away at the Wildish company, from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Saturday.
  • R-G's Rob Moseley made note of a profile done on incoming football recruit Derrick Malone. The 6-2, 225 Malone is the 46th Ken Hubbs Memorial Award winner - given to the top male athlete in the San Bernadino area. Not only is Malone a likely future star on the field, sounds like he's a great character guy as well.
  • Bob Rickert continues his Random Recruit profiles with a look at Devon Moreland, a 6-3, 215-pound linebacker who Rickert refers to as a 4-star "tackling machine."
  • ESPN's Ted Miller has a recap of Pac-10 players who made Phil Steele's All-American teams. Jake Locker only a 4th team all-american? They're gonna riot in Seattle. LaMichael is 4th team - bahhhhhh.
  • The Ducks men's golf team carries the weight of a no. 1 seed as they head into regional competition that begins today in San Diego. Coach Casey Martin thinks his highly rated team is ready to rise to the occasion after a sixth place finish at the Pac-10 tournament served as a wake up call.
  • As a team, the Ducks women's golf team is struggling at nationals, finishing yesterday in last place. However, better days may be on the horizon, as indicated by the performance of Oregon freshman Cheyenne Hickle. In her first NCAA national tournament, Hickle shot a 1-over second round is now tied for 12th place in the 126-player field.

Well it's off to the excedrin and quad-grande cocktail for me. Be sure to share any fresh quack. Go Ducks!
