I have been saying it an awful lot this weekend, but college baseball sure is fun. If only they could do away with the metal bats. Enjoy your Tuesday fix:
- Oregon's best-of-three super regional against Kent State will kick off at 8 p.m. on Saturday. On the line, of course, is a trip to the College World Series. The Golden Flashes come in on a hot streak, having won their last 20 games. Aaron Fentress provides some insight into Kent State.
- Casey Martin is headed back to the U.S. Open. Martin won the U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Emerald Valley Golf Club on Monday. Ducks senior Daniel Miemicki tied with Oregon State junior Nick Sherwood for second place and will take part in a playoff today to determine who joins Martin as the second golfer from this sectional. George Schroeder also has a column on Martin's qualification.
- Over at FishDuck, Charles has the latest fishduck minute video. This week's segment is a second look at Chip's game-planning by Charles. Joel Gunderson also has a post on Arik Armstead.
- Curtis Anderson breaks down the Oregon men's form chart for the NCAA championships that begin on Wednesday in Des Moines, Iowa. While the Ducks are not one of the favorites, the 14 athletes competing in nine events are looking to make an impact. The track & field team also held their annual banquet on Sunday, with Brianne Theisen earning the Bowerman Award.
