Rich Brooks sure is an entertaining guy. Here's some quack this morning:
- Matthew Centrowitz and Andrew Wheating are almost qualified for the World Track and Field Championships in September. Both did well enough at the USA meet a few weeks ago, but now will need to improve their times to compete. Because Centrowitz is the US champion, he needs to run 1500m in 3:38 to qualify, while runners-up Andrew Wheating and Leo Manzano need to run 3:35 to qualify.
- It sounds like Cliff Harris is doing what he can to get back in Chip Kelly's good graces. He (i.e. his mom) paid $1,620 in fines to cover his recent traffic fines. Unfortunately for Cliff, he still owes $8,500 in fines in Oregon and California for a variety of citations.
- Ted Miller is taking a look at the "impact games" in the Pac-12. For the North division, Stanford/Oregon is the easy choice. For the South, he picks Arizona/Arizona State, which is a bit surprising.
- The Solid Verbal is the best college football podcast out there, and they have George Schroeder join them in their most recent episode. I don't want to listen to this, but I know I'm going to. Who knows, maybe Schroeder will redeem himself?
- A lot of people have been talking about Chip Kelly's job being in jeopardy. KEZI gives us the relevant parts of his contract. Unless Kelly lies to the NCAA, I have a hard time seeing this situation apply to Kelly, since he ran this whole thing through compliance. If anything, those guys should be worried about their jobs.
- Jordan Kent's NFL career is in question with the lockout looming, but he's making the most of his time. He's hosting a travelling football camp, called Edge Combines, which will be in Portland and Vancouver on Monday and Tuesday.
Got anything else? Leave it in the comments. GO DUCKS!
