Quack Fix: Brianne Theisen, Kenny Payne, Autzen Turf Replacement

New, comments

Sorry, would have had the quack up sooner but rumor has it that Masoli stole the SBN web servers. On to the quack

  • Andy Staples weighs in on the "Utah to the Pac-10" event saying that the Utes have finally arrived at the big boy table. I also want to point out that Utah coach Kyle Whittingham made mention of how a team outside of a BCS conference could win the national title. First step, be ranked in the top 15 to start the season. I look forward to Jared's quick rebuttle on why preseason polls don't matter.
  • Chip Kelly talked a little about Utah joining the Pac-10 and what influence he would have (if any) on divisional splits. Personally, I think we should have all of the "State" schools plus non-"state" schools with less than 4 syllables in that division. (eg. Wazzu, Oregon State, Stanford, USC, Arizona State, Utah in Division "Superfly. Oregon, Washington, California, UCLA, Arizona, and Colorado in Division Snuka). Screw your zipper division!
  • Kentucky has made official what we already knew. Kenny Payne is a new assistant for the Wildcats. Apparently Calipari has been trying to lure Payne away for awhile.
  • Brianne Theisen was named the 2010 National Field Athlete of the Year for Outdoor Track and Field as voted on by coaches across the country.
  • One of my favorite Ducks of all time gets picked up by the Seattle Seahawks. How many Ducks play for Pete Carroll now?
  • The Autzen Field Turf replacement has begun! (video)

That's your quack for today. Have a good one, hope for the clouds to go away and go ducks!
