It's Wednesday, and there is a Duck football game tomorrow. This is weird. But hey, that just means that there is a whole lot of quack this morning. Pace yourself.
- Let's start it off with the injury update. Michael Clay says that he's at 65 to 70 percent, but doesn't know his status until he's evaluated by the medical staff. Getting Clay back would be phenomenal for the defense, but many other Ducks have been playing through inujury. Moseley lists Josh Huff, John Boyett, Carson York, Alejandro Maldonado, playing through, and also discussed Ricky Heimuli's lingering ankle on his twitter account.
- Adam Jude has a profile this morning on Kenjon Barner. This story is a great example of why Oregon has been so successful the last few seasons. With so many offensive weapons, it would be easy of players to resent others who gain success, but Barner and the rest of the Ducks have an incredible team-first attitude. This article covers a lot more than that, so check it out.
- Moseley's piece is on Jeff Tedford, and how despite being the winningest coach in school history, he's not beloved in Berkeley. He also covers how Tedford is preparing for tomorrow night.
- It wouldn't be Cal week without unending talk of faking. Aaron Fentress adds to conversation. What I like about this article, is that it gets the opinion of the players, who we don't always hear from. The best quote of the article was Mark Asper, who responded to Arizona players who accused the Ducks of faking injuries: "We're not the ones who fake injuries, moron."
- Ken Goe has a piece on the 9:25 drive against Cal to end the game last season. For an offense that did nothing for 3 quarters, they overcame penalties and injuries to methodically wear down the Bears and end the game. The full video of the drive is online, and you see part 1 here, and is still one of my favorite memories from last season.
- Cal Golden Blogs has their look at the Oregon defense, and they don't sound overly optimistic. Check out their view, and then come back later, we'll have our defensive preview up later today.
- I don't usually care about early Heisman polls, but this legitimately surprised me. LaMichael James is getting absolutely no Heisman mentions, despite leading the country in rushing, all-purpose yards, and punt returns. This will almost definitely change quickly if James continues his production.
- The Oregon Volleyball team has been excellent this year, and needs your help on Friday night! They're trying to break the school attendance record as the 15th ranked Ducks take on last year's NCAA runner-up, the Cal Golden Bears.
