Well, the regular season is over. *sadface* But at least we have one more game to watch, in the Granddaddy of them all. Here's your quack:
- Rob Moseley's piece this morning is on the contrasting styles of Oregon and Wisconsin. Be ready for this storyline to be mentioned A LOT. It'll be the next 6'8". Wisconsin is slow and big. Oregon is small and fast. We've heard this before. But this isn't entirely accurate. Wisconsin has great QB play and very good skill position players, while Oregon has a physicality, especially on defense.
- Oregon held their annual football awards dinner last night, and De'Anthony Thomas and David Paulson shared the headlining award, and were named co-MVP of the team. LaMichael James won the award for "impact player," and Hronnis Grassu won the award for the top newcomer for his outstanding play at center. Many others were recognized, Rob Moseley has the full list.
- Oregon has won three straight outright conference titles. But they are still missing that victory in a bowl game. Aaron Fentress had a piece on the Ducks' urgency to get that victory on Saturday, and Rob Moseley had one yesterday. Oregon opened as 4.5-point favorites over Wisconsin, so they have a great shot to get that victory, but it won't be easy against a very good Wisconsin team.
- Josh White from FishDuck has an early look at Wisconsin. The Ducks will have some areas they can exploit, but the Ducks have to force the Badgers into passing downs. Luckily, Wisconsin has not-very-good special teams, which means the Oregon defense will hopefully have a long field to work with.
- Switching things up, the Oregon women's basketball team rebounded from their first loss of the season with a 10-point victory over Portland. Amanda Johnson notched a double-double to help move the Ducks to 7-1.
