A belated Happy Father's Day to all that dads out there. For Duck sports, it was a pretty quiet weekend. Cliff Harris is suspended, new players are arriving on campus, and that's about it. Here's the quack we could find.:
- The USA Track and Field Championships are in Eugene this week, and for Duck fans, Andrew Wheating will be the center of attention. George Schoreder had a great piece yesterday on Wheating. He still has his enthusiasm, but he's in the big-time now, paying taxes and everything. At 23, he's got a bright future ahead of him.
- While there may not be a lot of news right now, just wait a couple hours. Oregon plans on releasing documents related to media FOIA requests on Oregon's use of recruiting services. Make sure to check the comments for the most recent news.
- Speaking of recruiting services, one Oregon football player had a different take. Nick Cody was part of a team put together a video on the subject for the 2011 Summer Sports Media Workshop.
- George Schroeder also had a piece on Cliff Harris Friday that didn't get mentioned around here. I think that Schroeder did a great job on this one. He does a great job capturing just how likable Cliff is, while at the same time showing how Cliff has not lived up to his responsibility as a leader on the football team. Cliff needs to become dependable on and off the field. Based on his actions, he won't get too many more chances to prove that to Chip.
- Duck Territory has been catching up with a lot of Oregon's 2011 recruits that are starting to arrive on campus. Last Friday they had pieces on Andre Yruretagoyena and De'Anthony Thomas. Today they have a piece on LB Rodney Hardrick, who should be already on campus.
- Oregon picked up a commitment from Cody Carriger last week, and Duck Territory has a bit more info on the commitment after speaking to his dad. Carriger sounds like an athletic freak. At 6'7 230, he ran a 11.25 100-meter dash. But he's very slim and will be able to easily add bulk Oregon recruited him to play "drop end," and his athletic ability should be perfect for that spot.
- Lastly, Bill Connelly had an interesting list at Football Study Hall. He listed the best and worst BCS teams, and those that missed out, from 2005 to 2010. Oregon gets a few mentions.
Like I said, not a lot out there this morning, so help your fellow addicts out. If you've got anything else, drop it in the comments. GO DUCKS!
