Quack Fix: Canzano on Costa, Kelly on Dan Patrick, Anderson leads Team USA

Are we there yet? Here's your Wednesday Morning Quack Fix:

  • Following George Schroeder's column on Nate Costa yesterday, John Canzano weighed in with a write-up of his own, but his included an interesting tidbit: Costa has been interning with the Springfield Police Department for the past six months. According to Costa, he chose to keep the gig under wraps, and given all the off-field issues this offseason, I can't say I blame him. Canzano thinks the starting quarterback job is Costa's to lose, and he gives some pretty compelling reasons why. But as Jared said yesterday, I'll enjoy rooting for whomever wins the job.
  • Oregon head coach Chip Kelly was a guest on Dan Patrick's radio show yesterday and talked about everything from Jeremiah Masoli to conference expansion to his desire for camouflage uniforms. If you have a few extra minutes, it's worth a listen.
  • The defensive line continued to be a hot topic yesterday. Following Aaron Fentress's all-decade polls for both defensive end and defensive tackle, Ted Miller continued his preseason positional preview series with defensive tackles. Meanwhile, Rob Moseley focused on the entire defensive line.
  • has its take on a hypothetical Team Oregon, comprised of all former Ducks currently in the NFL.
  • Oregon pitcher Tyler Anderson picked up the win for the Collegiate National Team yesterday, holding China to two hits in five shutout innings and helping Team USA advance to the semifinals at the World University Baseball Championships.
