Not a lot of quack this weekend, but we did get to see the Lakers implode, so life is good.
- It was an ugly weekend for Oregon baseball. The pitching showed up, but the batting didn't, and Oregon scored only two runs over three games. On Sunday, they managed only two hits. George Horton described the weekend, "Yuck, yuck, blah." Danny Pulfer, one of the few Ducks that has been performing recently, called the team "soft." The Ducks are 23-23 on the season, and it seems like the team is finally unraveling. Kris will have more on the team later today.
- There are a few bright spots on the baseball team. Tyler Anderson has been a star this season. Kris has a profile on him and his work ethic up at goducks.com.
- At least one Oregon team from the diamond is doing well. The 12th-ranked Oregon softball team took a series from the 10th-ranked Stanford Cardinal with a victory yesterday. The Ducks have won the last three series and sit at 9-9 in the Pac-10. The Ducks seems to be peaking at just the right time. The final series is against UCLA next weekend, and then the Ducks find out about their postseason status.
- Last Friday Kiko Alonso plead guilty to misdemeanor charges of criminal mischief and trespassing. And now Chip Kelly has a very important decision to make, that has caused quite a bit of discussion amongst Duck fans. George Schroeder gave his two cents yesterday, and he does a good job with this piece. It's clear that Chip wants to do right by Alonso the person, but I don't see how playing football at Oregon can be part of his rehabilitation.
- Ted Miller has a spring wrap for Oregon. While the Ducks still have questions at offensive line, receiver, and middle linebacker (after the Alonso suspension), it's great to see that the Ducks look to be improved at the defensive line next year.
- Lastly, Malik Hairston will have to wait for another title shot. His team came in 3rd in the Euroleague finals.
