- Oregon baseball finally got a win over Oregon State. The Ducks avoided a painful season sweep by the Beavs and got a 6-2 victory at PK Park last night. Oregon scored five in the 7th, including a three-run shot by Shaun Chase in the win. This was Oregon State's first game since being unanimously named #1 by the polls.
- The Pac-12 has joined the other major conferences is calling for a major change to the structure of college football. This has been rumored for quite a while, and would allow the major conferences to set different and less-strict rules on player compensation. The most well-known proposal from the Pac-12 is for scholarships that cover the full cost of attendance. These moves will be expensive, which is why it seems likely that the power conferences could essentially create their own set of rules.
- Kevin Gemmell takes a look at points off turnover in the Pac-12 North last year. Oregon led the division in both turnovers gained (tied with OSU) and points off turnover. Looking at that stat makes it pretty obvious why Oregon struggled so mightily in November, as they forced only 1 turnover in the Stanford, Utah, and Arizona games combined.
- Also important, the play of both lines. Rob Moseley has a post-spring rundown of the offensive line, while Andrew Greif looks at the defensive line.
