Quack Fix: baseball media day and Joevan Catron honored by Pac-10

New, 236 comments

With football recruiting wrapping up, the basketball team playing well and baseball just around the corner, there's a surprising amount of quack out there for a Tuesday morning.  Enjoy.

  • With the 2011 recruiting class most likely complete, Rob Moseley takes a look at how the class of 2009 has fared.  Two years in, Oregon looks to have hit it big at the linebacker and secondary positions while having uneven results elsewhere.  Most notably, of the players recruited as wide receivers or defensive lineman, fewer than half are still with the team today.
  • Good news for the football staff as it looks like Scott Frost will remain as receivers coach for the Ducks.  Tom Shatel from the Omaha World-Herald writes that Frost was interested in the offensive coordinator position, while Bo Pelini was interested in him joining the staff in a similar role to his position at Oregon.
  • Bob Clark writes that the Oregon baseball team has no problems with the increased expectations being placed on them as they prepare for their third season under Coach Horton.  For his part, Horton says that merely repeating last year's success won't be good enough.  Perhaps making this task harder is that the Ducks may be without the services of shortstop and leadoff hitter KC Serna, who was suspended indefinitely for  a "violation of team rules."  Clark notes that Serna also served a three-game suspension last year for the same reason.
  • Brian Prawitz, who calls Oregon baseball games with Jerry Allen, offers his thoughts on the team after attending the club's media day on Monday.  And, KVAL has some videos up with Coach Horton discussing the Ducks and the expectations for 2011
  • It was announced yesterday that Joevan Catron was named the Pac-10's Player of the Week following the Ducks sweep of the Washington schools at home.  This has been a pretty fun team to watch this year and the improved play by Catron has been a big part of it.  Let's hope the Ducks can keep up the momentum as they head down to LA this week.
  • With Washington having dropped three consecutive conference games, Clark's weekly look around the conference focuses on the Huskies' recent struggles.  And, in his conference rankings, the Ducks have climbed up to 4th.

Go Ducks!
