Weekend Quack Fix: Will the real Josh Gibson story please stand up and Harris in the news, for good reasons now

Here's the quack I can find, or maybe it's not, or maybe it is, or maybe I'm just on vacation in Mexico and this whole thing is a semantic argument.

  • The big story yesterday was how Josh Gibson, assistant director of football operations, was fired, or he wasn't, or maybe he was, or maybe it's just about semantics?  Love the world of the new media, where the first blind squirrel gets to keep the nuts.  I will say that I've always thought if anyone was going to lose their job in all this Text, Lyles, and no Videotapes mess it was going to be the guy that didn't reply to Lyle's email with this.
  • Looks like Will Lyles was really busy with his "Ctrl C" and "Ctrl V" keys.  Does anyone really believe that this guy was actually selling "packages"?  That's like saying Texas high school coaches go to Universities in the summer to "instruct" at camps.
  • While Cliff Harris is taking care of things off the field this offseason, sports writers are already lining up to watch him take care of things on the field next season.  Harris was named to the watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy for next season, which is presented to the top defensive player by the Football Writers Association of America.
  • Matthew Centrowitz laughs at your B standards.  The junior who continues to keep Oregon Track and Field as a premier program in the country just broke the school's record in the 1500 and qualified for the World Championships next month in South Korea.
  • Since he's no longer making Oregon highlight clips for YouTube (thanks a lot ESPN) keeerrrttt1 is now flashing his keyboard skills writing a piece for the Register Guard.  Awesome work Kurt, wish I was in Eugene this weekend to be able to catch her show.

That's all I got for now, you know the drill if you find more.  It puts the quack in the comments or it gets the hose again.
