Sorry for the late quack.
Darron Thomas says he expects to start Saturday at Colorado, noting that, unlike LaMichael James, he was never told by medical staff that he couldn't play.
- A very touching story today by Adam Jude, who tells the story of former Colorado tight end Ed Reinhardt, Jr., who nearly died on the Autzen Stadium turf in 1984. His injury put him in a coma for 62 days, but sealed the bond between him and teammate (current Colorado coach) Jon Embree. The injury touched the Oregon players as well.
- The Corvallis Gazette-Times has a nice story up on punter Jackson Rice and long snapper Drew Howell. While the offense gets all the accolades, Rice is second in the nation in punting, and has had some great kicks this season. Howell has been flawless snapping as well. Rice is already on some All-American lists, and with another year to play, could go down as Oregon's greatest punter ever. Has to make you feel good if we find ourselves in a close one.
- As I noted yesterday, Oregon's baseball schedule was announced. Non-conference highlights include trips to Vanderbilt and Hawaii, and home games against Oklahoma, Connecticut, Illinois, and West Virginia.
- Bob Clark has an article about Oregon Basketball, noting that they are concentrating on defense in practice, hoping to play more man-to-man after depth issues forced them into a lot of zone last season. He also writes that Oregon opens the season Nov. 11 at Vanderbilt, whose 6'11" center Festus Azeli has been suspended for that game for receiving improper benefits.
- Our Colorado friends over at the Ralphie Report are breaking down Oregon's offense, as well as the key matchups
- Lots of CU stuff out from the Denver Post, including Colorado's new starting tailback, and that they're so injured that they're pulling redshirts at this stage in the season.
- Finally, fishduck has his new Fish Report out from the ASU game. Its a great video as always.
