Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Need/want tickets? This is from GoDucks.com:

A limited number of reserved season tickets for the 2010 football season will go on-sale this tomorrow. Tickets will be available online at GoDucks.com beginning at 8:30 a.m. and in person at the Casanova Center Ticket Office and over the phone at 1.800.WEBFOOT beginning at 9:00 a.m. The cost of all remaining reserved season tickets for the 2010 football season is $335 each.

The invite for Utah was officially given yesterday by the Pac-10 and Utah is holding a press conference at noon (local time) today, presumably to accept. The resulting 12 team landscape is already being discussed with a likely north/south split.

So what does Chip Kelly think of this?

"We'll just line up and play whoever they want us to play," he said. "It's not like we won't get enough exposure. Just tell me my schedule and let's go play." 

Classic Chip.

Looks like I'm not the only one who isn't completely thrilled with the addition of Colorado and Utah. Greg Hansen from the Arizona Daily Star has a couple of thoughts I would like to share with you.

 Colorado brings little to the Pac-10. No baseball, no softball, no swimming, a basketball team that averaged 6,267 fans and almost no new money.

Utah would bring even less. The Utes wouldn't help to solve the raging financial crisis at Oregon State, Wazzu and ASU.

In sports, CU is vanilla ice cream. If Colorado is vanilla ice cream, Utah is snow melting on the sidewalk.


Ouch, the truth hurts.

GO DUCKS!

I'm not rockin' a stiffie for Utah or Colorado. More like a big floppy.
