Quack Fix: Ducks try to prolong season against ASU, baseball drops Civil War

New, comments

Tonight's the night. The start of the Ducks' run to the national title. The odds are around one in a trillion, so how can you not like that?!

  • The good news for Oregon? They play the worst team in the Pac-10 tonight. The bad new? They face ASU, who won both meetings this year. Can the Ducks solve the Sun Devils? They'll have a decent shot at victory if they play with energy and confidence, but the ASU zone has smothered the Ducks, and they will have to play a radically different game from how they played last week.
  • For all the high hopes for Oregon baseball, that seems to have evaporated. Oregon dropped to 5-7 with a Civil War loss last night, dropping the game 4-1. It's becoming a familiar story, but the Ducks simply couldn't score any runs. They managed 7 hits (OSU had 8), but the Ducks couldn't get those runners across the plate.
  • It's been tough season for the Oregon women's basketball team. Struggling with injuries (including first team All Pac-10 Nia Jackson) and an inability to hold leads, they faltered to a No. 9 seed in the conference tournament and will take on the No. 4 Arizona Wildcats, who beat Oregon by 23 last weekend.
  • Former Oregon recruiting coordinator Deryk Gilmore was on 1080 the fan talking about scouting services, and how Oregon uses those services.
  • Lastly, there's been something happening in Columbus that's garnered some attention. Honestly, I just don't care about this story, or NCAA violations in general. I guess this takes Oregon's investigation out of the spotlight, but I didn't care about that spotlight anyway. So yeah, get all self-righteous in the comments if that's your thing.
