It's Monday, back to the daily grind. Here's a bit of quack to help you start off the week.
- The MLB Draft is today, and Tyler Anderson's life-long dream looks to be coming true. He's expected to be drafted in the first round today, and is tabbed as the 24th best prospect in the draft. Anderson has great command and maturity, and that makes him a sought after player for many pro teams. He's come a long ways since being drafted 1,491st in 2008, and I look forward to seeing him play on the biggest stage.
- Aaron Fentress of OregonLive also takes a look at Anderson, but also runs down other Duck draft hopefuls. Madison Boer and Scott McGough are ranked 123rd and 126th, respectively, going into the draft.
- Vin Lanana has about 100 jobs, but he was just a coach over the weekend as he worked with Andrew Wheating and Russell Brown during this weekend's Prefontaine Classic. Brown came in 9th (and PR'd) in the loaded Bowerman Mile, while Wheating finished 5th in the 800. For both, the real race is in a few weeks, when the USA Championships are held at Hayward Field.
- Oregon signed one of the best offensive line classes in the country in February, and one of the top players, Tyler Johnstone, is ready to get to Eugene. He plans to arrive in Eugene on June 17th, and at 275 pounds after offseason work outs. If Johnstone can make that type of progress in high school, I can't wait to see what happens under Radcliffe.
- Oregon football has burst onto the national scene the last few years, with a couple runs at the national title, and a couple players in contention for the Heisman Trophy. Because of this, Oregon leads Heisman Pundit's list of teams most likely to take home their first Heisman.
- Lastly, Matt linked to the great LSU vs. Oregon blog on Saturday, and on Sunday they had a good post on the weekend about Oregon's receivers vs. LSU's secondary.
Now, allow me a moment to indulge. I'll be participating in the Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk in a few weeks, and am soliciting donations. This is a great organization that, in this economic time, can use every penny for people that really need it. Any donation would be greatly appreciated.
Anyway, if you've got any other quack, leave it in the comments. GO DUCKS!
