Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
• Are you a big Nascar and Oregon fan? Then head over to the Gateway Mall to check out the official Oregon Nascar before it heads down to Roseburg this weekend.
•Chip Kelly is back from his Middle East trip and Bob Rickert has the details.
And he did get some work in during the trip, coaching flag football games at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, as well as in Kuwait and in Iraq.
"I went 3-0,'' he said. "I’m hoping that’s a good omen for the season.''
• The Oregon golf team qualified for match play at the NCAA Championships. They take on the Huskies today. Always like nailing the Dawgs any chance we get.
• Have you heard about the latest in the expansion rumors? How does the Pac-16 sound? Ted Miller lays out the plan.
Reports that the Pac-10 is now looking to expand to 16 teams, with the new six all coming from the Big 12: Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Colorado.
Golly. That would be a dramatic change in big-time college sports.
The Pac-10, according to the reports, would then split into two divisions, with Arizona and Arizona State joining the Big 12 six and the old Pac-8 forming the other division.
Count me in as not a big fan of this idea.
