Quack Fix: Lee Corso Mascot Head, Ethics, Alex Kosinski, Basketball Updates

How's my daily life? It's perfect. It's awesome. Every day is just filled with just wins. All we do is put wins in the record books. We win so radically in our underwear before our first cup of coffee. It's scary. People say it's lonely at the top, but I sure like the view.

  • We have an update on the stolen Lee Corso mascot head from back during the football Civil War. August Michael Zane Cuneo of Eugene has entered into a diversion program, must perform 40 hours of community service, write an apology letter to ESPN and to Trooper Orly Johnson of the Oregon State police and to think very very hard about what he's done.
  • A Lake Oswego business is becoming a national leader in helping universities deal with the onslaught of tips concerning wrongdoing and potential violations. All seven state universities in Oregon employ EthicsPoint to help triage the reports. An interesting thing to note from the article revolves around how much one university can impact another. Reports made at one university will increase scrunity on all other universities in the region.
  • If Oregon is going to win another Indoor Track National Championship, they may have to do it without women's distance runner Alex Kosinski who withdrew from the meet with a possible stress fracture in her back. Even without Kosinski in the lineup, Oregon is still the favorite but the margin of error has been reduced. All is not lost though as the Ducks will have plenty of weapons. Also, you can watch parts of the action on ESPN3.
  • After a valiant late-game comeback, the lady Ducks fell in their opening game of the Pac-10 Women's Basketball Tournament against the Arizona Wildcats, 90-89. The team ends the season at 13-17 and a miserable 4-14 record in conference. Considering the excitement over last year's team, this is a rough season to swallow.
  • The Flying Altmans defeated Arizona State 76-69 in the opening round of the Pac-10 Tournament, leading from start to finish. Next up, the UCLA Bruins and Reeves Nelson who should prove a formidible test. From what I understand, Reeves has already been in contact with the Miami Heat to inquire about leading their crying sessions.

I leave you with this question for the day. We've had a lot of discussion about Colorado and Utah coming into the league for football. How about the impact the Utes and Buffs will have in basketball?
